Synopsis:Three friends, three wishes—one Christmas!
Riley Erickson, her pregnant sister, Jo, and their friend Noel are all wishing for the same thing: the perfect man. Or at least men who are perfect for them. Riley's hasn't turned out to be too impressive, dumping her for her bridesmaid three weeks before the wedding. Jo's husband is being perfectly stubborn. And Noel has given up completely.
When the three women visit a shopping-mall Santa on a lark, the guy is full of predictions. Riley's going to meet her perfect man in a memorable way. Noel is going to get a good man to go with that house she's trying desperately to buy. And Jo, well, a new man is about to come into her life. What on earth does that mean? She already has her hands full with the one she's got. As for Riley and Noel, they have some holiday challenges to meet…
But Christmas wishes can come true, as these three women are about to discover. Because in spite of romantic setbacks and derailed dreams, this truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
Sheila has done it again and hit it out of the park with this book. I enjoyed the relationship between Jo, Riley and Noel. You have to feel bad for Riley when her fiance dumps her for her bridesmaid just weeks before the wedding and Christmas. Jo was also going through many emotions as her husband was deployed and she was having a baby. Then we have Noel a budding writer who is also looking for love. I loved watching Noel and Ben. I liked when the girls went to the mall for some shopping and to have their picture taken with Santa. Then Santa guesses what they want for Christmas and starts predicting what is going to happen to the girls. You must read the book to find out if want Santa predicts really happens. This is a book I could not put down and read in two days. It was the perfect distraction for me from the stress I have had this week. I have not read a bad book by Sheila yet. She has a way of making her characters seem to come alive off the page and you feel as if you are right there with them as you are reading the story. I am looking forward to her next book.
