Back Cover Blurb:
Beck never wanted the chaotic life of a sport star—especially not at the cost of his marriage to the only woman he’s ever truly loved. But his career is a runaway train—and he’s afraid it’s too late to hit the brakes.
But when a mix-up leaves Beck and Marley stranded together for Christmas Eve on the barrier island where Beck proposed years before, old memories burn bright—and sparks fly hotter than a bonfire on the beach.
Could the magic of the season bring the gift of a second chance, just in time for Christmas?
The characters in this novel weren’t overly developed. Their development centred around their relationship and their respective jobs. It was quite a unique take and worked well for the story at hand. As a reader you don’t get caught up in the history and backstory and ‘what-ifs’ of the relationship. You enjoy a simple story about love and reconnection. The author also goes in with the assumption that readers have read other books from Magnolia Bay and have a basic understanding of the individuals and the town itself, lending to the ability to move the story forward well without losing anything.
This was a short & sweet Christmas story that made me wish for the relationship that these characters have.
