Overview

Photographer Mitch Carson is tired of big city life. He just wants to settle down in a quiet town with his daughter, Angie. Even that doesn’t quell his fear of losing his daughter to his scheming mother-in-law.

Sophie Gardner wants to be a screenwriter. She's ready to leave small-town Zutphen, Michigan and go to Hollywood. With a theater degree under her belt, she's busy writing scripts while helping out her sister Joanie, who's bedridden with a difficult pregnancy. Unfortunately, Joanie has somehow coerced Sophie into directing the Christmas pageant at Zutphen Community Church.

When Sophie and Mitch meet, the attraction is instant and mutual. But each wants what the other is trying to get away from. Can they deny their feelings and pursue their dreams? Or will the holiday prove to them that their true wishes might not be what they'd thought?

An enchanting tale of a man named Mitch his little girl named Angie and a women named Sophie. Between Angie and a hectic work schedule Mitch was having absolutely no luck in the relationship arena, not that he really cared his little girl is his life and he is happy that way. Throughout the story Mitch and Sophie were continually thrown together in ways that although not normal still makes a women happy because the plot in the story can happen in real life but still makes the story enjoyable.

Christmas Wishes is a wonderfully innocent love story set in West Michigan. The characters are well developed and believable. The locale is, well, my home too. There is just enough intrigue to satisfy the mystery lover in me. A must read for the holidays!

Every small town has people that make you shake your head and laugh, the people in Patricia Kiyono's story are no different. "There's always one" and this town is no different. The busy body, the my kid is better than yours, the meddling mother in law, they all find a place and leap out at you. The holidays mean travel and Christmas Wishes needs to be your travel buddy. So many things about this book make me happy- from the cover to the final line- great story. Do not miss it. CAMarks 53
