The Holiday Bride (Holiday Brides Series, Book 2) by Ginny Baird

A sweet traditional romance and classic amnesia story, with a holiday twist!¿ Santa knows best...

Book 2 in Ginny's Holiday Brides Christmas Novella series.

Waitress Lucy West is down on her luck at the diner. A fan of late-night television reruns, she's always dreamed of a nineteen-fifties style happily ever after. But, in reality, she's opted to settle. Barely scraping by on her meager salary and tired of going it alone, she figures marrying affable, yet distractible, Mitch as making the right move. Little does she know that Christmastime--and Santa--have other plans in store...

Bachelor dad William Kinkaid has his hands full with a young teenage son and a five-year-old daughter. Since losing his wife to cancer three years before, William's worked hard to keep things as upbeat and normal for the family as possible. After his child makes a special Christmas wish, William's stunned to awaken Christmas morning to find a beautiful blonde on the sofa. The woman can't remember a thing, and his kid thinks Santa brought her. Can William solve the mystery about who she really is, without giving away his heart?

THE HOLIDAY BRIDE...
William cinched the tie on his robe and paused at the bend in the stairs. Carmella raced down the steps ahead of him, dashing to the large beige sofa facing the fireplace. Two stockings brimming with goodies hung from the mantel.
"Oh boy, oh boy!" she cried, springing on her heels in a happy dance. Justin appeared on the landing beside his dad.
"What is it, fuzz brain?" he asked with a yawn.
Carmella looked up at them, her cheeks aglow. William had never seen her so excited. "He did it! Santa really did it!"
William descended the stairs feeling pleased with himself. He did know a thing or two about fathering, after all. "Well? Is it what you wanted?"
"Boy, is it ever," Carmella said with a happy gasp.
William strode around the sofa, feeling smug. Then, suddenly, he halted, nearly tumbling over the coffee table.
"Wow," Justin said, gazing straight ahead of him.
William stared in shock at the lovely blonde on the sofa who was clutching Carmella's teddy bear! She didn't look much over thirty, and was very reasonably put together.
The woman opened her eyes with a start and tried to sit, before quickly lying back down. "Where am I?" she asked with a pitiful moan.
"Don't you know?" Carmella asked, taking her hand. "Santa brought you home!"
She pushed herself upright, grasping the back of the sofa. "Home?"
"You're our new mommy!"

The Holiday Bride Lucy works in a diner and it's Christmas eve, very busy day. Mitch and her are to be married the 31st but when she stops to see him she tells him she'll deliver the gifts for clients so he can finish his other work. William Kinkaid and his 5 year old daughter Carmella and twelve year old son Justin all live together since his wife Karen had died. Problem is Lucy falls and hits her head, unconscious she wakes up on Williams' couch and has no memory of why she is there... Christmas day and his parents show up and with all the excitement some think Eddie planned all this as a joke, that she's a stripper. She can't even recall her name or anything of her past just that she loves chocolate. They will take her to the doctor the next day. Justin makes a web page and with the sexy elf costume they get a lot of calls and visits about Lucy. Rather funny in a way that Roger doesn't even realize his to be wife is not even home and finds out from the real Bridget that she's not gotten her Christmas gifts... I received this book from the author as a gift in exchange for my honest review.
