Ah... a second chance romance filled with holiday rituals, tortured hearts, and the sweet tender feelings of hope. Annie Rains does it all so beautifully! Truly, from the very first page, I am immediately drawn to Lucy and Miles. There is a big difference between young love and adult feelings and knowledge. The journey back together is better for the separation, yet achingly bittersweet, all at the same time. I'm left wanting to string colorful lights, and with a heart burst with holiday spirit and love.
The Christmas Village will make the perfect stocking stuffer read for any romance fan. Happy reading!
From the Cover...
Once upon a Christmas, she gave him her heart. This year, he'll have to win it back again . . .
When Lucy Hannigan returned to her childhood home in Somerset Lake, one of the first things she did was join the local book club. And thank goodness, because now that Lucy’s first Christmas without her mother is bearing down upon her, she can use all the help and support she can get. Especially when she has to take in a tenant and the only person interested is Miles Bruno, her ex-fiance.
Lucy’s friends keep teasing her about the way Miles is trying to make up for his mistakes but forgiving and forgetting isn’t coming easily to Lucy. With bills piling up and her mother’s finances in disarray, however, Lucy isn’t in any position to say no.
As the small town prepares for the holidays and competition heats up in the Merriest Lawn decorating contest, Lucy can’t help feeling like a Scrooge. Her mom loved the holidays and won the contest each year, but as much as Lucy would like to carry on the tradition, she isn’t sure she has it in her to deck the halls this holiday.
Yet when Miles shows up with tons of tinsel, dozens of decorations, and lots and lots of lights, Lucy begins to wonder if maybe the spirit of the season will finally mend her broken heart.
