“Finding Christmas” by Jeannie Moon takes place in a little town called Holly Point. Holly Point sounds like a wonderful place to be, especially at Christmas time. This is the story of former Navy Pilot, Maggie Benson and former NBA player and now local high school coach and teacher, Will Fitzpatrick.
Maggie has returned home after two long years of recovery from a horrible crash. She not only has her physical, but emotional scars to deal with too. Maggie has always been fearless and active. Now, she is not sure what life holds for her.
Will understands that your plans for life can change in a heartbeat. He is very attracted to her when they first meet. Maggie is attracted to Will but feels that she has too many scars, physical and emotional to burden Will with. Will Maggie and Will give them a chance at true love?
The author did a great job of incorporating awareness of the sacrifice that our military people go through in order to keep our country safe without losing the focus on the romance in the story. I liked that the vet was a woman instead of a man.
This is a great story to read during the holidays, wintertime, or anytime. “Finding Christmas” will definitely get you in the mood for romance. Steamy scenes, humor, difficulties that life throws at you, friendships, and family are all woven into this wonderful story. I really enjoyed this book and I also loved the cover. Curl up, get some tissues (for happy and sad moments), fireplace going, cup of coffee or hot tea, and enjoy a heartwarming Christmas romance! I look forward to reading other books by Jeannie Moon.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Tule Publishing for an honest review.
