Publisher's Summary

Two years ago, Noelle North’s then-fiancé left her waiting at the church on Christmas - her wedding day and birthday. Now, she knows she cannot endure another holiday season at home in Boston. At the urging of four women at the assisted-living community where she serves as health director, Noelle decides to rent Seashell Cottage on the Gulf Coast of Florida for the holidays. She meets Silas Bellingham, the cutest seven-year-old boy she’s ever seen, and his great-grandmother, Althea. 

Noelle discovers Althea’s caretaker has been abusing her and goes into action, ending up with the temporary care of both Althea and Silas. Becoming part of the Bellingham household has an entirely different series of challenges when it comes to Althea’s grandsons, Jake and Brett, who are having problems of their own with hotels to run and their parents missing in a plane crash. 

But after sparring with her, Silas’ father, Jake, realizes Noelle is just what he and his family need, and when she finds the perfect Christmas star for Silas, they both know he’s right.

A Woman As Strong as Steel

What a great find of a new author due to members only sale and narrator ms Dawe. As a devoted fan of this narrator, I purchase just about any of her stories where children are involved. Ms Dawe does excellent voices for children and males.
I buy just about any author who sets their story in the highlands of Scotland and narrated by ms Dawe. Eg:Hanna Howell books 5,6,10. Nora Roberts The MacGregor series.
Mystery author Marcia Clark, Samantha Brinkman series is not to be missed.

Maybe its the season but this wonderful story has a bit different take on the usual holiday romance. I found this authors writing style to be very refreshing with wholesome values brought to life. No erotica, graphic language,and gratuitous sex in this contemporary romance. This is good writing as the story unfolds and the usual journey of new love discovered is done in such a delightful way that this will become a fave re listen during the holidays or whenever I will need a story that brings a bright warm feeling to my heart. See Debbie Macombers Fathers Day.
This book has a great salad dressing recipe on ch 10, and inspired me to enjoy some experimental cooking.
I have added this authors Salty Key Inn series to my wish list.
I hope that our heros brother, Brett, in this story will evolve into his own SeaShell Cottage novel.
Good writing and editing, Well done
