As Bluestar Island prepares for a very special Christmas wedding, Santa’s sleigh crashes into The Lighthouse Café, reuniting Bluestar’s beloved waitress with her former fiancé.

In this holiday novella, Darla Evans has carved out a quiet life for herself as a waitress at The Lighthouse Café. Up until this point, she’s conveniently avoided the one man who shattered her heart and her dreams. But when a wedding draws him back to the island, she knows their meetup is unavoidable.

Tech entrepreneur William “Will” Campbell has returned to his childhood home to be the best man in his father’s wedding. But first his father has a very special task for him—to restore a sleigh in time for the wedding. However, there’s not much time until Christmas. He just might need some help.

As snowflakes cover the small town of Bluestar, Will and Darla work together to make it a very special holiday wedding. With the past looming between them, will the magic of the season open their hearts and allow them to find love again?

Includes a holiday recipe for Darla’s frosted sugar cookies!

My Review

This is a great novella for getting into the Christmas spirit! If you haven’t read the other Bluestar Island books, you can still enjoy this novella.

I liked that it was a second chance at love story. Darla and Will had a broken engagement in their past and Darla had a lot of hurt that had been building up for the past several years. She was still confused about why Will had broken off their engagement. She felt that one day they had been in love and the next day, Will had wanted out.

Even though this story was told in novella form, I felt that Will and Darla’s characters were fully developed. I could feel the tension, hurt, and even attraction that hovered between the two and I hoped that they could work things out as the story progressed.

The many Christmas activities and the preparations needed for Will’s father’s Christmas wedding made it truly feel like the Christmas season as I read this book.
