THE FIRST LOVE COOKIE CLUB
This is a delightful story of the wonder of Christmas and the power of true love. This return to Twilight, Texas, is as enjoyable as the previous visits with heart-warming characters and a touch of magic.
As a child, Sarah Collier spent Christmas with her grandmother, put kismet cookies under her pillow on Christmas Eve and dreamed of the man she was destined to marry: Travis Walker. But then when she was 15, Travis got married on Christmas Day and Sarah stopped believing in fairy tales. That was nine years ago and Sarah is now a successful children’s author known as Sadie Cool. She returns to Twilight at the request of Jasmine, an ill little girl, and by arrangement of the First Love Cookie Club. Jazzy just happens to be Travis’ daughter and he doesn’t believe in destiny, that happily-ever-after crap or fairy tales, either. But the First Love Cookie Club members do, and they set out to restore Travis and Sarah’s faith in love and grant a sick little girl her Christmas wishes. (AVON, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
