Mallery’s second installment in this heartwarming and humorous holiday romance series (following The Christmas Wedding Guest) brings readers back to Wishing Tree, WA. Camryn moved back home to Wishing Tree to take care of her younger sisters and the family business, but she has every intention of heading back to Chicago to resume her life. When she meets Helen Crane and is blindsided by the matriarch’s plan to find a wife for her son Jake, she feels she has to warn him, but spending the holidays with Jake makes her reconsider staying in town. Meanwhile, River Best has always wanted to belong, but trusting and making connections has never been her strong suit. She takes on being the community’s Snow Queen as a challenge to help her fit into the town she’s chosen to make her home, although her Snow King, Dylan, makes her wish for more.
VERDICT Hand to readers who enjoy romances featuring tight-knit small-town communities with heartfelt holiday traditions and friend groups that are more like found families.
