Summary

A beautiful story about the magic of childhood Christmas memories, the strength of family, and falling in love when you least expect it.

Everyone loves Christmas, don’t they? 

Carrie Blake loves her job as a nanny, but while her friends are settling down, all of Carrie’s spare time is spent with other people’s families. Though it breaks her heart, her New Year’s resolution is to embark on a new career and fix her love life. As Carrie starts her last job, she’s sure she’ll be going out on a high - the house is amazing, the kids are adorable, and she’s in charge of decorating the tree! 

The only problem could be her boss. Single dad Adam Fletcher might be both handsome and successful, but he’s always working. Doesn’t he realize he’s missing out on precious moments with his son and daughter?

As Adam’s family arrive for Christmas - including his sensitive sister Sharon and his fun-loving elderly grandpa Walter - Carrie realizes that she might just have found the perfect allies in her quest to persuade Adam to loosen up. There’s still time for Carrie to make this the best Christmas ever. After all, Christmas is the time for miracles, isn’t it? Let the festivities begin!

Fans of Carole Matthews, Susan Wiggs, Scarlett Bailey, and anyone who loves the sound of Christmas songs and the sparkle of decorations on the tree will adore this festive holiday treat!

very enjoyable

I love any story with children and the second chance of love. This was a warm story about reconnecting children with their dad. Sometimes it takes a outsider to see the missing pieces to the puzzle. A strong woman to put her heart on hold to find a piece of herself that was missing.

nice story but a little too descriptive at points.

the story was nice but for me there was way too much description after each characters line was given. It seemed very repetitious at many points describing her internal feelings.

Listen at High Speed

The narration is torturous and whining. I couldn’t have finished except that I put it on 1.75 speed.
I hate it when heroines are immediately sexually attracted to someone they just met. Is a handsome face and good body all it takes to fall in love? Ted Bundt was said to be cute, so haven’t women learned to reserve love for those with more than good looks and money.
Also, these are the most convenient kids ever conceived. They go to bed too early to be included at family dinners, they disappear to the play room and never melt down or act like real children.

Sweet novel-couldn’t put it down!

This book was so perfect for Christmas-I have read a few of Jenny Hale’s books and have loved them all. I was hooked on the characters immediately! I didn’t enjoy the narration though - just felt like she wasn’t the right fit for the book.
