Ten strangers. Six days in paradise. One unforgettable Christmas.
Hailey Walsh has always loved Christmas, and this year the holiday was supposed to be the most magical of all, spent with her large family and her fiancé in preparation for their wedding just two days after. Then Gage broke their engagement.
Now, instead of playing in the snow with her nieces and nephews, Hailey’s building a playground with children she’s never met before, spending her Christmas with strangers in Hawaii, on a service program she hopes will lift her spirits and help her begin to pick up the broken pieces of her life and heart.
Gage Stevens didn’t want to spend Christmas in Hawaii any more than he wanted to break his engagement, but sometimes fate has a way of slamming a guy against a wall and forcing him to tough decisions— for the good of others, be that his ex-fiancée or his mom. And while he’s certain that no ocean breeze or tropical wonderland can heal what’s wrong, one glimpse at a familiar head of red hair and Gage realizes fate may not be done with him yet.
I love discovering new to me authors. And Michele was new to me. But I have to say I would be happy to read more of her books if this one was any indication of her writing style.
This is a short read you can do in a couple of hours but it packs a big punch. There is much more to this story then just a Christmas romance. We get to see how God is working in these ten people’s lives and bring healing into their brokenness. This is something He gives to each of us when we surrender our desires to Him. I love that the author even says the phrase alternative endings. Yes! God specializes in this area and it ends up being even better than you imagine. You might say a Genesis 5020!
