Caleb is struggling with the loss of his parents that he does not fully understand. However, he turns to Allison and Jake for nurturing. Soon the child has a Christmas wish that he wants Santa to make Allison and Jake his new parents. With their hearts going out to the bewildered tiny matchmaker, Allison and Jake fall in love. Can they make a happy home with the child bringing them together while grieving the loss?
Though the lead couple and young Caleb seem to set the 100 yard dash record for getting past grief, contemporary romance readers will enjoy this fine tale in which the two adults willingly sacrifice their own needs and desires to help their godson. The story line is character driven from the moment that Allison and Jake learn of the tragedy until the final efforts to move on. Caleb is to quickly a matchmaker as he has to wonder why the dramatic changes in his happy life, but no one will care as fans will root that this deserving trio finds love and happiness amidst the tragedy that haunts each one of them.
The godparents have heard of each other but never met. Ally and Jake have to learn to be parents and work together to help Caleb through this as well as deal with their own grief! When they realize this a long term commitment they are to make they rearrange their personal lives - his is across the country in Miami FL and hers much closer Fresno, CA but she needs to be hands on at her business. It's interesting to "watch" Ally and Jake master parenthood , the grief all 3 feel and their new awareness of each other.Caleb's grandmother fits in nicely too. The story takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas it's a heartwarming tale Ms Salonen has penned - I Love it!!
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read romances. I laugh and I cried, a lot. I could not put it down and it seemed to always be on my mind whether I was contemplating the end, which was not easily given away. Although there was a bit of foreshadowing you never new what would happen with the two and of course Caleb. This book was one of the most heartfelt novels I've ever read. I also enjoyed the fast pace the book had, always re-catching my attention when I least expected.

Then she builds the story up from the fears, anger, and joys of which these struggles and challenges of life, both past, and present often reviel in time.
Ms. Solnen doesn't write to deeply about the adult sexuslity, therfore, it is my belief that teenagerd, as well as adults can read this book.
And in my recent personal expierence, if you have expierenced a recent death of someone in your life, this book can help you work through, and see a different perspective of life after death. How we all react, process, and eventually heal from our loss(es).

There are three characters at the centre of this story. Four year-old Caleb has to learn to live without his parents after they are killed in a freak car accident. His godparents, Jake and Ally have to learn how to be parents to the heartbroken little boy while adjusting their lives and dealing with an unexpected and not entirely welcome attraction to each other. Caleb’s grandmother Cordelia, while not at the centre of the story, is a great secondary character. Her grief, her health issues and her feelings are all factors in driving the final outcome. In this story Debra Salonen has done a masterful job of drilling down into all the fears and doubts and hopes and dreams that make people act the way they do.
I was utterly absorbed in Caleb’s Christmas Wish. Plenty of tissues were needed. Plenty of thoughts were provoked, but there were also plenty of smiles and at the end there was a feeling of rightness. This story is up there with the very best Christmas stories I have ever read. I just loved it!
