In a town where Christmas is not just a
once a year holiday, Angie’s mother has gone off the deep
end. Or at least Angie is convinced of this when she
announced that she is going to “gift her with a man” for
Christmas. Now all the men within 10 years of her late 20’s
age range are asking her to save a dance at the upcoming
wedding. The biggest problem is that while Angie doesn’t
want any of the men asking her to dance she is too polite to
turn them down.
Now Wes O’Connor, local dairy farmer,
is only a little confused about why he is the only man in
town who hasn’t been approached by Angie’s mother. You
see, Mrs. Bellini has hated him for years, ever since the
ill-fated attempt to impress Angie back in High School. You
would think that after so many years, Mrs. Bellini would
give him credit for being a successful businessman as well
as for growing up.
Now Angie has hatched up a plan. Date
the one man her mother hates. What will happen when the
plan to fool her mother takes on a different feeling? Angie
doesn’t want it to be pretend dating. She thinks she may
have found the fairytale ending. But, will she mess things
up while trying to get her mother to stop interfering?
Welcome back to the Town of Noelle in
Alberta, Canada where Christmas seems to be a way of life. I
have enjoyed a number of the different tales centered on
this town by the talented Ms. Dawn of The Wild Rose Press
and A Cinderella Christmas is no different. I
loved the not-so-secret matchmaking by Angie’s mother and
laughed out loud at her word fumbles. You will want a plate
of cookies, a glass of something festive and a nice cozy
area to read this story, if not you will be off looking for
cinnamon buns, and hot dairy farmer’s buns to go with them.
I completely enjoyed A Cinderella Christmas
and think you will also enjoy this fast-paced festive story.
