Overview

A shy soul and an adventurous heart. As the holidays approach, can they find happiness together?

Maria Anne Davis was on her way to an exciting career as a chef in Dallas, until a terrible car accident left her blind. Ever resilient, Maria has reinvented her life on her own terms, starting a business out of her home kitchen, selling her jams and jellies to the local grocery.

Maria loves romance novels, and despite her bold spirit, she fears she'll never have a big love affair like ones her heroines experience. That is, until she realises how much she cares about the quiet Wes Whitman, the owner of the grocery.

Wes can't keep Maria's wildly popular jam on his shelves – just like he can't keep the fierce, beautiful Maria out of his thoughts. But how could a firecracker like Maria come to love a shy, nervous man like him? Maybe all they need is a grand affair. Wes needs to convince Maria that some affairs last forever, though – just in time for Christmas.

Short read, not a dynamic plot.

A magical and marvelous Christmas novella about making your dreams come true, finding your home, braving to open your heart for the love and opportunities already in front of you. With the author's beautiful, nearly poetic style of writing, the wintery scenes of our beloved Ransom Canyon open up and the magic of the season is palpable in the air. Maria Anne Davis is a character from the previous book in the series and deserving all the happiness in the world. She has spunk, courage, and determination beyond measure. The tragic accident the blinded her is not going to rule her life. She has a quirky sense of humor, she loves to read romance novels, and dreams about the kind of wild love affair she has read about. Wes Whitman is a kind soul, with a generous heart. He never dared to hope to find a soul mate or to have a love affair, yet he has been content with his life as it is until Maria walks into his office and kisses him. Oh, how I loved these two shy, bashful people finding the courage to ask what they want in life and go for it without reservations. They share their dreams and deepest wishes with each other, holding on to each moment together like it is the last one. Yet sometimes life is superior to daydreams and wishes, sometimes the wildest hopes and deepest desires do come true. A beautiful and alluring story that had me smiling and sighing throughout with sheer joy and bliss for the characters. A delightful Christmas novella surely to entertain and make you feel all warm inside. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
