#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR SUSAN WIGGS INVITES YOU TO AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS IN THE CATSKILLS
A single father who yearns to be a family man, Logan O’Donnell is determined to create the perfect Christmas for his son, Charlie. The entire O’Donnell clan arrives to spend the holidays in Avalon, a postcard-pretty town on the shores of Willow Lake, a place for the family to reconnect and rediscover the special gifts of the season.
One of the guests is a newcomer to Willow Lake—Darcy Fitzgerald. Sharp-witted, independent and intent on guarding her heart, she’s the last person Logan can see himself falling for. And Darcy is convinced that a relationship is the last thing she needs this Christmas.
Yet between the snowy silence of the winter woods, and toasty moments by a crackling fire, their two lonely hearts collide. The magic of the season brings them each a gift neither ever expected—a love to last a lifetime.
Like I have said in many of my other reviews, I adore Christmasromance stories! Every year I am searching for a new batch to read. I am so glad that I read Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs – it is a quick, uncomplicated story that is as comforting as a warm, fuzzy blanket on a snowy afternoon.
The book revolves around Logan O’Donnell, who is familiar to fans of The Lakeshore Chronicles Series. He is divorced from Daisy and is co-parenting his 9 yr old son Charlie. He is very much a family type of guy, and he is trying to make the holiday special for his son. We also meet Darcy Fitzgerald, who is a newcomer to Avalon, and has recently gone through a rather tumultuous divorce. Both Logan and Daisy have had their hearts bruised, and are reluctant to surrender themselves to the possibility of finding love again.
Since I am already a huge fan of Susan Wiggs AND The Lakeshore Chronicles series, Candlelight Christmas was like the star on the top of the Christmas tree – the perfect addition to an already wonderful thing! I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books in the series, and I hope it never ends. Susan describes Avalon so beautifully that each return is always a greatly anticipated journey. I can’t wait to see what is going on with the characters that I have become so fond of.
So, if you are already a fan of Susan’s, you probably have already read this book, but if you haven’t discovered her yet, now is the time to start. I would highly recommend The Lakeshore Chronicles Series.Candlelight Christmas is the 10th book in the series, but I feel that it could also be read as a stand-alone story as well.
If you are looking for a little something to add some sparkle to your holiday reading list, this just may be what you are looking for.
