Bear Ridge is the cutest little town that no one can remember. It gathers magic like faerie dust to a wand, especially at Christmas. Toni Bell hasn’t believed in magic since her parents died. She’s been on her own for more than a decade, driving from town to town, job to job, gig to gig, living out of her truck turned tiny home, making a point to never get attached. She’s on her way to the West Coast for New Year’s Eve, and plans to be on the road for Christmas, hoping to avoid the heartache being reminded of how alone she is brings. But a wrong turn, a loose dog, and a bollard pole change her world.
IT TAKES A LITTLE MAGIC
Stuck in Bear Ridge until her truck can be fixed, Toni decides to make the best of it only to discover everything she’s ever wanted, and never dared to wish for, were all within her grasp. Nicodemus Panait makes her want to believe in magic, miracles, and Christmas, but she’s afraid that all he offers will prove too good to be true. Nico knows what his forever looks like, but he has only until Christmas to make Toni see it too. Fortunately, he has fate and love on his side.

What a lovely 'feel good' read for the holidays! Vagabond Toni Bell finds herself in the mystical and charming town of Bear Ridge. Wounded by loss and determined never to love again, she nevertheless becomes part of the community while waiting for her Harvester to be repaired, and finds her unwillingness to love and her lack of faith in magic challenged by the town itself and in particular Nico Panait, the young man she finds herself falling for. It's fun to watch Toni as her lack of belief is challenged time and time again and the walls she has built around herself start to crumble. I highly recommend this one as a sweet and uplifting story, as the power of love and the magic of Christmas and Bear Creek work a miracle in Toni's life.
