I loved the tenacious way that Kenzie goes about her life. She knows that her brother's house has sold, but she keeps trying to come up with any way that she can for her to end up with the house that she grew up in, not Jared. What was kind of funny is that she ends up talking the person who was planning to buy his house out of it, without even knowing that she had. And then came the guilt. I liked that Kenzie was willing to work very hard to make sure that Jared's house sold in time, even though she knew that it was her that would miss out.
I liked Jared too, he also has had a hard few years. His wife died, leaving him alone with their son. Moving to a new town and starting a new business hasn't been a walk in the park either, yet he gets up every morning and is both dad and mom to his young son.
The plot of this one is cute. I loved that there is a cute love story but also a cute story from the early years of Kenzie's life that ends up coming full circle before the book ends.
This is a cute, clean, fun book that you won't want to put down, I know I didn't!

A review copy of this book was provided by Covenant Communications.
The story starts out to be very engaging, but I quickly found Kenzie to be quite hypocritical, selfish, and bitter. She displays some of the same tendencies as her father, which is what led to their falling out, and refuses to acknowledge them, which is very aggravating. She has her shining moments, times when I really liked her, but for the most part, she wasn't high on my 'favorite people' list for the first 2/3 of the book. I love the way she mothers Sara and relates stories of her childhood. Having grown up in a small town myself, I can understand the desire to have that same atmosphere for raising her daughter in. But Jared has the same desire for his son. Jared is quick to assume, which gets him into trouble too, but he's more mature about the issues at hand and, in my opinion, more likable.
I love the idea of Christmas magic and loved the day-to-day events that take place in this book, even though they don't have a lot to do with the issues at hand--baking cookies, Christmas shopping, skating on the pond, serving others, and the heart-to-hearts. I really enjoyed the ending, but I'm not giving anything away.
This is a nice, sweet, Christmas romance, splashed with some changes of heart. I love the theme of new starts, in all aspects. The bonus cookie recipes in the back are a plus.
Content: mild romance; very mild religious elements, specific to the LDS faith (no preaching). Clean!
