Shelley Noble has written a wonderful short story for the holidays. This story followsWe get to share Thanksgiving and Christmas with them.
Grace has just pulled off a win to preserve the Crescent Cove boardwalk area for historical preservation. She and her friends go off to celebrate when a newspaper is left on the table revealing that days headline. A case from Grace’s past that affected both her legal career and her family appears in the paper. Now all of the sudden her father drops by with information about this case, but does Grace really want it? Or will this ruin her thanksgiving?
The second story is about celebrating Christmas at Crescent Cove. Bri can’t wait to share her first Christmas with her newly adopted daughters. These daughters Lily and Mimi both came from China. Bri has had to learn about the Chinese culture to help her daughters adapt to their new surroundings. There is one aspect she wasn’t counting on a stranger that decides to share her barn for one night. The stranger David Henderson is there for one reason only to deliver a letter to Nick Preston brother of Luke. David believes he needs to deliver this letter personally. Will he find more than what he bargained for in Crescent Cove?
I actually enjoyed this one! I don’t often say this about Holiday novellas. I have not found them interesting in the past. This book left me wondering if we might see more of Bri’s and Grace’s story in the future?
This novel is like the holidays at the beach. The plot for each story was great. The second story was better for me than the first one. The first one left me with wanting to know more about the outcome of the story. Overall a great holiday read this Christmas!
