One Enchanted Noel — My Review

This novella was everything I hoped it would be. It was sweet, heartfelt and full of Christmas cheer. If you love stories about second-chances — and who doesn’t? — this is one romance I hope you’ll check out this holiday season.

As soon as I met Seb and Leigh, I was rooting for their happily-ever-after. They’ve both been through a lot and their lives are far from perfect. But they’re both also very genuine and humble and eager to move beyond their past mistakes. They’re ambitious and fun. Even in this short story, they both have well-developed goals and character growth. Read more ›
