by Jennifer Peel
Kindle Edition, 147 pages
Publication: October 23rd 2017
Is there room for two on this honeymoon for one?

Piper Wyatt's Christmas wish is to get promoted to manager at Blackstock Hotel and Resort. Not only does the promotion mean more money, but it means more time with her son and proof that she's not such a disappointment after all.

Jace Petersen, successful owner of a national chain of sporting goods stores, finds himself alone and miserable on what should have been his honeymoon. That is until he literally falls onto the lovely Piper Wyatt. He's intrigued with this woman who can fix a car in high heels. Too bad for him, he makes a horrible first impression, and Piper's not allowed to mingle with the guests.

While Piper tries her best to steer clear of Jace during his stay, she can't help but notice he's not the man from their first meeting. But is he worth risking her promotion? Or is Jace right, Piper deserves more than she ever thought possible for herself?

Find out in this charming Christmas tale about finding love in the most unexpected place, a honeymoon.

Seven fabulous authors bring you this holiday romance series about a group of special friends returning to their hometown at the request of their high school mentor. Each book is a standalone, but read them all to fully enjoy the journey of these remarkable women and their emotional reunion with their mentor, an incredible woman who changes their lives and helps save a small town community forever.

My Review: 5 Stars

Life doesn't always go according to plan--trust me--I feel like I know that just as well as anyone. And like Piper, my expectations for myself are higher than anyone''s are. Piper's path in life detoured six years ago, but she's making the best of things. Piper is a pleaser (I can be like that), which makes her very easy to relate to and very likable. I understand her rule-abiding ways, her loyalty to family, and her hesitance to jump back into the past and rekindle old friendships.

Jace doesn't leave a good first impression on Piper, or on the reader, but don't let that fool you. First impressions aren't always an accurate portrayal of a person, especially a person who isn't really in his right mind because, hello! he was jilted on the day of his wedding. He's a very determined man and knows what he wants, but he is open to different ways of thinking about things, especially where his business and relationships are concerned. After that dreadful first meet, I found him to be very charming and sweet. And I mean, VERY.

One of the things that I love best about Peel's writing is her ability to take two flawed characters and give them a magical story. Who doesn't want some magic in life? The charm and romantic tension ooze off of the pages, while they each struggle to find themselves and their happy ending. The road to love isn't ever easy, but it's a very enjoyable process when it's traveling through the pages of a Peel story.

One last note, that I'm sure I've mentioned before: I love it that Peel writes in the first person point of view. I honestly feel like I'm a part of the story and a dear friend of the characters. I hope she doesn't ever change that. This is a great holiday story that is sure to warm your heart.

Content: mild romance with some light innuendo; mild language
