Kristianna Harrington always dreamed of a Christmas wedding. But after two broken engagements, she's content to forget romance and run her Christmas shop in Jingle Bells, Arkansas. She thinks her biggest fear is making it down the aisle as maid of honor in her best friend's Christmas wedding, with at least one ex-fiancé looking on. But when her beloved Jingle Bells is threatened, Kristianna struggles to sort through her jumbled feelings concerning the handsome lawyer hired to change the town name and her childhood sweetheart who has returned just in time to come to her aid. Will her heart discover the truth before both her town and her Christmas spirit is extinguished?
"I’ve had three real loves in my life. I married the first one, the winter we turned ten, in a Christmas wedding at the top of Snowy Mountain. In exchange for my heart, the sweet green-eyed boy gave me a pop-top ring. But the sun came out, the snowman preacher melted, and I lost the ring in the slush. After that, my heart remained unscathed for thirteen years, a record I blew when I fell madly in love with a starving artist during my second year in law school. The ring he gave me wasn’t made from a pop-top, but it might as well have been when I caught him making out with his old girlfriend the night before our wedding.
Other than a whirlwind summer romance with my best friend’s brother, I’ve never even been tempted to risk it all again. Well, technically I guess I risked it all again this year, when I ditched law school and inherited a new hometown, my true true love—Jingle Bells, Arkansas. Which works perfectly, because how can a town break your heart?"
Christine Lynxwiler's "Forever Christmas" is a charming and well-plotted work of romantic fiction that speaks to the heart about heartfelt loss, conflict, differing opinions and forgiveness. ~ Stacey, Amazon reviewer (5 stars)
