Blake does it again with a Christmas tale that will make your spirit joyful. It’s a compelling read with a little depth. The realistic characters make the story a treat and the small-town feel creates an intimate reading experience. You’ll be glad you took another trip to Destiny.
Alone for the holidays and recovering from her divorce, Sue Ann Simpkins decides to take a weekend away from it all at a cabin by the lake. Wouldn’t you just know it, her ex’s best friend shows up and claims the cabin is his. Feeling very Scrooge-y lately, Adam can’t believe the woman he’s always held a torch for is in his life. Maybe Christmas won’t be so lonely for either of them after all. (AVON, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
