’Tis the Season

When an old woman makes a wish upon a Christmas star, miracles start to happen. A manipulative angel and a zany Christmas season are exactly what it takes to get Jason and Elise in the same vicinity again. But can they forgive each other and forget old resentments and hurts? Well, Christmas is a perfect time for miracles. Throw in the hunt for the perfect tree, a sledding competition and a desperate-for-grandchildren mother, and you have the perfect recipe for…love?


This is a lovely, heart-warming story of an old woman’s wish come true. When Elise Banks’s Mom wishes on the Christmas star that her husband, daughter and her daughter’s ex-boyfriend, Jason Winslow, would forgive each other, a series of events is set in motion that bring her daughter back from Chicago. This is a tale of forgiveness – with a liberal dose of assistance from the enigmatic Gabriel Christensen – hope and, ultimately, love as four people find a way to rectify the past. It is a quick read, and I really enjoyed it.
