HIS CHRISTMAS ANGEL
Ten years ago, architect Sol left town to avoid seeing Cassie marry the local golden boy. Now Cassie's a widow, and Sol's back -- and there's no real reason not to explore their complicated feelings for each other. But Cassie has a dark secret, and Sol has an issue of his own to deal with: his long estrangement from his father, and the reasons for it. Michelle Douglas makes an outstanding debut with His Christmas Angel (4.5), a complex, richly emotional story. The characters are handled especially well, as are the many conflicts and relationships. This one's a keeper.
