Prah, Constantine and Baryeh Reviews: Can't Miss Christmas by Miranda Liasson

The Blurb
(A standalone Mirror Lake Christmas novella)

Here comes a charming standalone Christmas novella by Amazon bestselling author Miranda Liasson. Fans of both Mirror Lake series will recognize familiar elements and people along the way.

It’s two days before Christmas and bestselling children’s author Grace Alberts needs to fulfill a promise—to make it to a book signing for the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the place that did so much for her during a very rough time. But the weather’s getting awful and all flights are cancelled out of Boston, where she’s wrapping up her book tour. Then in walks her annoying but extremely sexy ex-husband, who (as usual) thinks he’s got all the answers.

Graham Walker just stopped by to get a book signed for Grace’s biggest fan, his niece, and wish Grace a Merry Christmas—why not? But he soon finds himself troubleshooting her dilemma. He’s got a Range Rover that can plow through a hundred-year Nor’easter. He’s even headed home to Philly. Trouble is, Grace's and his past is a disaster, something he has no intention of reliving while driving through a winter storm, no matter how much he once loved her. And maybe still does.

Bad weather has a way of bringing out the best and the worst in people, and when a run in with some deer antlers leads them to a forced stop in Mirror Lake, Connecticut, anything can happen, naughty or nice. Maybe a bit of enforced alone time and some Christmas magic can be just what it takes for them to face their past—and each other—once and for all.

My Review

I'm a sucker for second chance romance, especially when it involves a married couple - in this case and married and divorced couple.

In order to fulfil a promise to do a book signing appointment at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia, Grace risks a ride in bad weather with Graham who happens to be going to Philly for Christmas. They have an accident in the town of Mirror Lake, where without the distractions of 'life' their passion re-ignite, and they are forced to confront their past mistakes, their fears and their possible futures.

I enjoyed the book owing to Ms Liasson's fluid writing style, which made this short story and a super fast read (I'm actually surprised at how quickly I completed it).

This book is so short that anyone can sneak in a read during the busy holiday period. A good one for anyone who is looking for a the magic of second chance romance.
