ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS
Michelle takes being her nephew Brendan's guardian very seriously.
So when the boy's hunt for his biological father brings Daniel into their lives, she's wary. But when Daniel proves to be a good influence, Michelle must face the fact that maybe she's been hiding behind her identity as "Brendan's mom" so she won't get hurt again. Once Upon a Christmas (4), by Holly Jacobs, brings readers back to the adventures of the Erie Elementary PTA Social Planning Committee. Once again Jacobs satisfies with a smooth story about a woman who wears more hats than simply "mother" or "girlfriend." Her characters, especially Michelle, shine with a depth that makes them seem more like neighbors than fictional characters.
