My name is Opal Mae McCool. I love my parents, but that name? Ugh, but I've adjusted. This year has been rocking along until October when my entire life lands in the toilet and someone flushes. First, my groom dumps me at the altar. Confession...not as destroyed as I should have been. Then, I share a steamy kiss with old love which leads to...nothing. Radio silence. Fine. Disappointed, but moving on. However, it's almost Christmas and I make a quick overnight business trip to Montana just in time for the snowmageddon and I'm stuck in Bozeman with only clean panties and a toothbrush. Next year has to be better, right?

I'm Michael Rockland. Born, raised and will die in Texas and I'm fine with that. I'm a mechanic at heart, even if my everyday job doesn't allow me under the hood. About a month ago, I discovered I'm the Friday Lunch Special at a local diner. I'd be pissed if it wasn't for a good cause and it hadn't led me back to the love of my life. One hot, steamy kiss, a promise for the future, and she shuts me out. Harsh, but I'm a big boy. I can deal with reality, except when she ends up on my grandparents' doorstep in Montana. 

My dad doesn't approve of him. His mother doesn't approve of me. It's not quite the Capulets and Montagues, and we are long past the teenage years, so isn't it time to let us decide if we belong together or not?

Fun cozy read! I have to confess, I wasn't sure if I was going to like May at the beginning of the book. I was definitely getting a debutante, shallow twit vibe. But luckily, things got cooking, or let's say the social wedding of the season became a lot juicier piece of gossip to burn up the society pages. That's when May becomes more interesting. Then you bring her BFF Katilyn into the picture with mischievous intent, and lunch just got droolicious. Like YUM! With a side of smoking hot. Then nothing... )Insecurities, and lack of communication equals - are things just going to fizzle out? Read the book to find out. I won't give away any spoilers. But I will tell you that I LOVED the ending. The way the author chose to end the book, left a smile on my face and tug on my heart.

Michael Rockland and Opal “Mae” McCool spent their senior year in love, had a beautiful summer and then Mae went to college. Michael visited Mae several times feeling he was not in her league he broke off their relationship. Breaking both their heart. Ten years later the Friday lunch special brings back all those old feelings back and sets them on the path of acceptance , forgiveness and a love that never truly died. This was a cute book worth the read but not one of my favorites.

Cynthia has done it again. I loved it! I so would love to hear more about Mae and Michael. I really, really didn’t want it to end. Opal Mae McCool or Mae to her friends and family is a high polished lawyer. She was raised with any and everything she could want. When she is standing at the alter to be married and her fiancé looks at her and says he can’t go through with the wedding and it is because he loves another woman. You would think this would be the end of her world, but no. She takes him outside to talk in private and then goes back in to tell everyone to go home. She is not crushed so what does that say about the future she thought she had? Her best friend KatiLyn takes her to lunch one day thinking she is going to cheer her up. Nope, she sees the one man that she has never forgot Michael Rockland. Michael Rockland is a mechanic and know by his friends and family as Rock. He has always been middle class. When he was in high school Mae helped tutor him so he could graduate. That lead to them dating. Then because he thought he had nothing to offer her when she went to college, he left her. He said it was for her own good. Now 10 years have gone by and here they are face to face but leave with just a conversation. However, fate has other ideas. When Mae goes to Montana for what should be a quick business trip and gets snowed in at the airport with nowhere to go the last person, she thought she would see is Rock. Rock goes to pick up his parents from the airport only to find it closed and Mae standing there looking lost. The only thing he can do is take her back to his place. While snowed in together the time lost seams to drift away. Then the snow melts and real life comes back. Now the question is do they stay together or stay apart? * ARC provided by author for an honest review.

Christmas in his Arms is a wonderful, short read. Mae and Michael, who have a history, get reacquainted after unexpectedly seeing each other again. Will they get back together or will the unwanted opinions of outsiders keep them apart? Another Cynthia D’Alba winner! By the way, the last chapter was unexpected but particularly good. Great book!
