Sweet Holiday Wishes (Indigo Bay Sweet Romance Series) by Melissa McClone

Lizzy Hamilton wants to skip Christmas this year. Working as a nurse while holding her marriage to an Army Ranger together has drained her energy and joy. She’s a pro at caring for others, but she needs someone to look out for her, too. However, when her soon-to-be ex-husband, Mitch, asks if she’ll spend the holidays with him—just as friends—so he won’t be alone, she can’t say no because, other than his platoon, she’s the only family he has.

Staff Sergeant Mitchell Hamilton wants only one Christmas gift—his wife. Frequent deployments and training exercises sent him away from home, and he had no idea how taken for granted Lizzy felt until she asked him for a divorce two months ago. Now his mission is to show his wife he’ll do anything to save their marriage. He only hopes his plan to win her back with a holiday vacation to Indigo Bay, a coastal resort town, works. He can’t—won’t—lose Lizzy forever.

This is a short, sweet holiday romance set in the Indigo Bay world and can be read as a standalone.

Melissa McClone’s Sweet Holiday Wishes Let’s accompany US Army Staff Sergeant Mitchell Hamilton and his wife of three years, Lizzie on a holiday trip to the coastal resort of Indigo Bay. Sounds romantic.....but it is not. It is a ploy for Mitch to win back his wife and talk her into forgetting about the divorce papers she filed. Mitch loves Lizzy but has put his career before her for three years. Now he is going to prove he still loves her and wants to stay married to her. But will it work? Lizzy has always wanted to go to Indigo Bay. She will go but only as a friend. Mitch is going to have to work hard to convince her that he loves her and does not want a divorce. Will he be able to get her to give him a second chance. Sweet Holiday Wishes is so well written with strong, well defined, relatable, realistic characters. The story mixes disappointment, fear to love, family trials with determination, friendship and love. A great holiday read!!

I really enjoy second chance romances for married couples! It’s so sweet to see them recognize problems and come together to try again. Mitch still didn’t understand why Lizzy wanted a divorce in the beginning. He just wanted to woo her back. I loved seeing him realize that her complaints had merit and his determination to change. Their true desires and love for each other really showed in their wishes. Theirs is a wonderful story!

Sweet Holiday Wishes by Melissa McClone is part of the Indigo Bay Sweet Romance Series. Army Staff Sergeant Mitch Hamilton’s life revolves around two things, his wife, and his fellow Rangers. Unfortunately, he has failed to make his wife or their marriage a priority in his life, instead allowing his fellow Rangers most of his time and attention, even when he is at home. Lizzy Hamilton gave Mitch three years of her life, of herself. She is a nurse and dedicates her life to caring for others. In her marriage, though, she felt like she was the only one making any effort. It was slowly draining the life out of her. Mitch had forgotten both her birthday and their anniversary this year. It was the last straw. She just wanted to be cared for, to feel loved and cherished. So, two months ago she asked him for a divorce. Mitch knows he messed up. He realizes that he didn’t put forth the effort in letting Lizzy know how important she was to him. He is determined to win her back. She always did want to go to Indigo Bay so he has made reservations for them to spend Christmas together in a cozy cottage. Now all he has to do is convince Lizzy to go along with his plan. This was a very short and oh so sweet story of second chances. These two clearly loved each other. I couldn’t help but to want them to get another chance at happiness. The setting at Indigo Bay at Christmastime was so romantic and quaint. I would love to visit such a place. It seemed like the perfect place to spend the holiday with the one you love.

Lizzy and Mitch are on the verge of divorce. Mitch makes one last-ditch effort to save his marriage by inviting Lizzy on a Christmas holiday. Accepting because she really needs a vacation and wants to remain friends with Mitch, she has no idea what he's up to. Realizing he didn't do enough to foster the marriage, he's determined to change his ways, but he also knows: it has to be Lizzy's choice. Lizzy is reticent at first, but enjoying his company and seeing the effort he's making, her heart and resolve open to a second chance. Loved how this couple found the the spark to rekindle their marriage while enjoying the spirit of Christmas.

4.25 ~> Short & Sweet Second Chance Holiday Novella ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover > Looking Deeper Third-person Lizzy's been married only for three years to a US Army Staff Sergeant, which means he was likely already an E5 or E6 when they married. She knew what life would entail when they met, yet now she's left him and is filing for divorce. Mitch was a fearless leader on the battlefield and exuded confidence when commanding his men but losing Lizzy scared him above all else. He planned a surprise Holiday getaway with his estranged wife, to a place she'd always wanted to go. Now all that was left was to hope things worked out! At first, I really did not like Lizzy at all. She did not seem like a very supportive Army wife. As the story goes along, the reader begins to understand her a little more. Mitch was great. Their love was still tangible. I loved that Dare (and, by extension, Jenny) was given cameo even if it were via phone call or text. The dialogue was smart and the interactions were believable. The plot flowed incredibly well. Ms. McClone managed to portray a much larger story in only a few dozen pages. She provided a rich backstory already with conflict where SWEET HOLIDAY WISHES was the Resolution in progress. The ending was satisfying. Predictability was not an issue. .

Christmas magic at its best. U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Mitchell "Mitch" Hamilton will do anything to get his wife, Lizzy, back. He did not want a divorce. He learned he needs to put her first. After two months apart, Mitch decided he wanted to take Lizzy to Indigo Bay for Christmas. Lizzie had always wanted to go there. Maybe this will win her back. Lizzy agrees, but she states they are only going as friends. Will the magic of the small town and romantic cottage works it magic on Mitch and Lizzy. This is a short story so it is a very quick read. But even being short, it was still packed with information, a great plot and perfect dialogue.
