Combining sentiment with sarcasm and sweetness with spice, Wiggs concocts a terrifically tasty holiday confection sure to be enjoyed by fans and new readers alike. A keeper.
Librarian Maureen Davenport has been involved with Avalon's holiday pageant for most of her life. This year, she's in charge -- and she intends to make it memorable. But her co-director, ex-child star Eddie Haven, doesn't share Maureen's vision. His biggest claim to fame is a well-loved Christmas movie, which is ironic, since he hates the holiday and everything associated with it.
Once she gets to know Eddie, Maureen swears she'll change that, but he's a tough sell. Against the odds, the two wind up together ... but it's certain to end in disaster, because the one thing Maureen and Eddie have in common is terrible luck when it comes to matters of the heart. Unless a Christmas miracle happens, that is! (MIRA, Oct., 384 pp., $21.95)
