About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well. Her second book, a holiday novella titled "The Christmas Cottage" hit #10 on Amazon's Overall Best Seller List on Christmas Eve. It was a great Christmas gift! Watching the numbers rise and fall is a daily roller coaster ride but definitely an exciting one! And on February 25th, she released the follow up novella - "Ever After". In March 2013, "The Christmas Cottage" was nominated for two Indie Romance Convention Award - Best Indie Romance Novella and Best Indie Contemporary Romance while Samantha was nominated for Indie Author of the Year! In August 2013, the video trailer for "Wait for Me" won an Oscar for Indie Author Book Trailer! More titles quickly followed: "Catering to the CEO", "Wait for Me" (Montgomery Brothers book 1), "Trust in Me" (Montgomery Brothers book 2), "In the Eye of the Storm", and "Stay With Me" (Montgomery Brothers book 3) which hit the USA Today bestseller list in it's debut week! "Catering to the CEO" was included in the romance bundle "Loving the CEO" - a five-book package - that made the New York Times and the USA Today Bestseller list. When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, blogging, playing way too many games of Scrabble on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 24 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

Lacey Quinn is in her mid-twenties and is a successful interior designer in Raleigh, North Carolina. She is the maid-of-honor in her best friend, Ava Callahan's wedding and has been friends with her for years...and in love with Ava's brother Ean forever. The legend of the Christmas Cottage, which belongs to the Callahan family, is that whoever stays in the cottage on their wedding night will have everlasting love and happiness. Ava believes wholeheartedly in fairy tales but Lacey is a bit skeptical. When Ean comes back into her life after 12 long years, she wonders if she is wrong about the legend of the cottage.
The Christmas Cottage is a beautiful, heartwarming, and sweet Christmas read that is perfect for anyone who is looking for something to read during the holiday season, or any time of the year! I really enjoyed it and will definitely be checking out the second book in the series, Ever After. I highly recommend this book!
This is a sweet romantic story, perfect for the holidays. Ava is kind of a nightmare, but Lacey and Ean are a cute couple and make up for Ava's antics. Nice quick read.
I absolutely love the way Samantha Chase writes. Her characters come alive and jump off the page. 'The Christmas Cottage' is no different.
Lacey Quinn has been best friends with Ava Callahan for years, and has had a crush on her brother Ean for as long as she can remember. When she agrees to be Ava's maid of honor she meets Ean again after 12 years.
It is rumored in the Callahan family, that when a couple spends Christmas night in the Callahan's Christmas Cottage, they will be together forever.
When circumstances happen and Ean and Lacey end up together, will the Callahan's Christmas cottage tale come true?
Do Lacey and Ean live happily ever after?
This book is a sweet, heartwarming read for anytime of year! It is well written and I would highly recommend it!
Just putting in my 2 cents here, I HATED THE END! Especially the last 2-ish pages of the book.
Also, just wanted to quite note that on the kindle edition, it does not have page numbers, which I got very annoyed at sometimes. I like when you can know whenever what page your on...
Also, the chapters are not linked to the table of contents, like other books, but the table of contents has links to all the chapters, but if you go to a certain chapter (especially if you are going to one of the last chapters in the book) you can not go back to the first chapter without going through each individual page, which is very tedious.
I liked the basic idea of the book, but I will not read again, nor will I read the sequel to this one.

Ava shot her a sharp glance. ‘A girl only gets married once,’ she said emphatically before adding, ‘Hopefully.’
