It’s going to take more than a few pieces of chocolate to fill this Scrooge’s heart with Christmas cheer. Luckily Candice Cane has a whole shop full...
Candice Cane is not proud of the way she acted after her last encounter with Jackson Frost. Sure revenge was fun, but it’s left Jackson standing, angry and looking for answers, on the welcome mat in her chocolate shop. Now he’s after some revenge of his own.
Jackson returned to his small hometown for one reason and one reason only...so he’s not sure how he’s ended up in a Santa suit in the middle of a chocolate shop, at the behest of its beautiful owner, instead of high-tailing it back to the city as fast as he can.
Jackson wants nothing to do with his small town past, but Candice shows him what he didn’t even know he’d been missing. Can a bit of Christmas magic heal old wounds and offer up a future neither saw coming?

While One Sweet Christmas is short, it tells a complete story in its small number of pages. I thought Jackson and Candice were cute together, and I really enjoyed seeing them get to know each other again ... and of course fall in love all over again. I've said it before - I absolutely love these childhood-friends/second-chance-at-love stories. Add in a little Christmas miracle/Scrooge storyline and I'm hooked. Although some might find One Sweet Christmas a little cheesy or predictable, that's one of the things I like best about holiday romances. You can get away with being overly sentimental or emotional or sappy - that's the kind of mood I get in at the end of the year (I embrace it whole heartedly) and I'm sure I'm not alone. It's why those Hallmark, made-for-tv Christmas movies are so popular, right? And Fredette's latest is the perfect choice for those who are looking to take just a short break and enjoy a little of that romantic holiday cheer
One Sweet Christmas by Darlene Fredette truly is One SWEET Christmas story. As some of you know I have a huge fondness for Christmas stories. So when I am given the chance to read a Christmas story during this time of year, it truly is a Christmas present for me! Candice Cane is one busy lady. She owns and runs a chocolate shop. She also helps out at the INN. She needs a Santa for Christmas in her store. Jackson Frost comes to town wanting something form Candice. In exchange for what he wants, Candice has him play Santa in her shop. Candice sees a more caring side of Jackson while he is with the kids. I loved how this guy that didn't think he was going to be able to handle dealing with these little children, is so completely in his element with them. I liked Candice and admired her strong independence that has helped her succeed at what she wants to do. I really liked Candice and her relationship with her employees. Jackson arrives in town wanting one thing and one thing only out of this trip. I thought that he had a bit of a chip on his shoulder but I soon seen that he really was a nice guy under that tough guy exterior. I really do enjoy second chances at love stories. Candice and Jackson find they have stronger feeling for each other then they ever suspected. I loved watching these two get to know each other again and watching their relationship blossom. Like I said at the beginning this really is One SWEET Christmas story. I truly enjoyed watching these two fall in love. I love everything that comes with the Christmas season and this book just added to my feel good mood this time of year. If you are looking for a cute, sweet , short Christmas story, I hope you will think about this one. The nice thing about this short story is that it's a fantastic story that can be read in a short amount of time. I think you will enjoy it. I know I sure did. I had not had the pleasure of reading any work by Darlene Fredette however, now that I have I would most certainly be interested in reading more. I was given the opportunity to read this story for a blog tour. As always is has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
