Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs (Lakeshore Chronicles #10)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR SUSAN WIGGS INVITES YOU TO AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS IN THE CATSKILLS
A single father who yearns to be a family man, Logan O'Donnell is determined to create the perfect Christmas for his son, Charlie. The entire O'Donnell clan arrives to spend the holidays in Avalon, a postcard-pretty town on the shores of Willow Lake, a place for the family to reconnect and rediscover the special gifts of the season.
One of the guests is a newcomer to Willow Lake—Darcy Fitzgerald. Sharp-witted, independent and intent on guarding her heart, she's the last person Logan can see himself falling for. And Darcy is convinced that a relationship is the last thing she needs this Christmas.
Yet between the snowy silence of the winter woods, and toasty moments by a crackling fire, their two lonely hearts collide. The magic of the season brings them each a gift neither ever expected—a love to last a lifetime.
My Review: Candlelight Christmas
Candlelight Christmas has everything you want in a Christmas story. Family, friends, cute kids, caring about others, likeable characters who you care about and want to see things workout for everyone. People that try and make Christmas better for others.
Logan only has his son summer and holidays. He loves his son and tries to be there for him. He goes out of his way for his son's new best friend. Because he can and cares for him. I really admired Logan.
Darcy does not want to make holidays worse for her family, ex-husband and stepchildren so she spends holidays with her friends family. Darcy does not want anything do again with a single father and his kids. She and Logan feel really close fast.
Their are a lot of cute animals in this story that enrich it and make holidays better.
Plot Logan decides to make a lot of changes and risks in his life now. He sells his old business and house to but a ski lodge and opens his house for Christmas their instead of Florida like always. He agrees to take care of two kids while their mom has to be gone over Christmas. Even lets his sister and her friends and family come and enjoy Christmas together. Lots of charm and lots of love that make the holidays inviting.
Good clean story that draws you into their lives as they celebrate the holidays.
I was given this ebook for purpose of reviewing it. All opinions are mine.
