THE MAGIC OF A FAMILY CHRISTMAS
THE MAGIC OF A FAMILY CHRISTMAS (3) by Susan Meier: Widowed two years ago, personal assistant Wendy Winston never expected she'd have a child, but her friend's death leaves her with custody of 6-year-old Harry. The two are doing fine until Cullen Barrington, the owner of the candy company where Wendy works, comes to town. Cullen's arrogant and aloof at first but warms as he gets to know Wendy and Harry. Romance isn't in the cards, however. Wendy knows she won't fit in Cullen's world, and his experience with marriage isn't positive. Well-handled characters with good chemistry offset some familiar plot elements, and the ending is truly touching.
