Romance writer Julia Landon knows how to write a happily-ever-after. Creating one for herself is a whole different story. But after a surprising–and surprisingly passionate–kiss under the mistletoe at Harmony Harbor’s holiday party last year, Julia thought she might have finally found her very own chance at true love. Until she learns her Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broodingly Handsome has sworn off relationships. Well, if she can’t have him in real life, Julia knows just how to get the next best thing….

Aidan’s only priority is to be the best single dad ever. And this year, he plans to make the holidays magical for his little girl, Ella Rose. But visions of stolen kisses under the mistletoe keep dancing in his head, and when he finds out Julia has written him into her latest novel, he can’t help imagining the possibilities of a future together. Little does he know, though, Julia has been keeping a secret that threatens all their dreams. Luckily, ’tis the season for a little Christmas magic.


Review: Sometimes all it takes is one kiss to fall in love or never forget the person that gave you that kiss. And because of that one kiss you start to daydream…

I simply loved Julia, who was full of love and compassion. A little bit unorganized and just downright likable. Full of life and magic.  Aidan is divorced with a little girl named Ella Rose.

Julia needed somewhere to be out from under the watchful eye of her brothers and dad. She moved her with her fiancé, his mother is the mayor. Life was good but things changed…spoiler so I won’t give any more info. But, you may know if you have read the other books in this series.

Things change Julia has been playing fairy god mother and Aidan and his father are the last two that she has to help. She falls for Aidan…  The plot twist the secret comes to life…

Ms. Mason gave us characters that are easy to like, easy to feel their plight and emotions. The story was filled with hope and dreams…magical; a perfect combination for a Christmas story.

I loved the ghostly antics of Aidan’s great grandma and the cat. She was adorable and funny. She really did mean well.

There was a lot going on in the story and if I were to give any part away I feel it would spoil the magic.
Just know that the characters are warm and real, the story is full of everything that makes a story special. You won’t be disappointed. This book can stand alone, but you might just want to read the others in the series. You might find a new author to follow. I know I did.

I really enjoyed this story…it had a lot of elements that put together made for a Christmas where dreams really do come true.
