This story follows two sisters, their family and their town of Wishing Tree. I will start by saying if Wishing Tree was a real place, I think I would be moving there. It has the type of atmosphere that most people want, neighbors are close, the town is small and friendly.
The Somerville sisters: Dena & Reggie. Dena still lives in Wishing Tree; she owns a B&B and teaches at the local elementary school. Dena has been hoping that love would find her, but so far nothing. She made the choice to have a baby on her own. A guest signs into the B&B for the month of December. His name is Micah Ruiz, he is famous, but Dena has no idea. He is good looking and makes Dena feel things she hasn’t felt in a long time. But she feels she has no chance with the handsome stranger, he is way out of her league.
Reggie lives in Seattle with her Great Dane Belle. She hasn’t been home to Wishing Tree in over a year. Not since she had been humiliated. Her ex-fiancé Jake had asked her to marry her on a Friday, and on Sunday dumped her with no reason except he couldn’t do it. With the entire town knowing what had happened she couldn’t go home. Now it is over a year and her mom & dad are renewing their wedding vows and want her in Wishing Tree for the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. Her mom wants her, and her to help with the wedding. Will she be able to handle it if she runs into Jake? She was told he wasn’t in town anymore so hopefully it won’t happen.
Dena & Reggie help with all kinds of fun things in the community as well as helping set up their parent’s wedding. They both have surprises in store for them throughout the story, some good some maybe not so good. I honestly don’t want to say any more about the book. I know myself, if I start talking about it, I will tell you all about the book, and that is not what reviews are for. So please just read the book. I loved this book. I always read Debbie Macomber’s Christmas book, she is the master of Christmas stories in my opinion, but I must say this book by Susan Mallery equaled a Debbie Macomber book for me. It was a thoroughly enjoyable book.
THE CHRISTMAS WEDDING DRESS is the first in a new small town series by Susan Mallery. Mallery has given us series based in Fool’s Gold, Mischief Bay, Blackberry Island, and Happily, Inc. Now, we have Wishing Tree, Washington, a town focused on Christmas. All year long. Mallery recently released a novella, SAY YOU’LL STAY, that introduces the town and some of their traditions.
In THE CHRISTMAS WEDDING GUEST, we meet the Sommerville sisters. Dena lives in Wishing Tree. She’s a teacher and owns a local B&B. She’s given up on finding “the one,” and is having a baby via a donor and IVF. Reggie lives in Seattle, but has come back to Wishing Tree to help her parents plan their vow renewal ceremony. Last year, she was engaged and dumped in the same Thanksgiving weekend.
Micah is a grieving rock star who lost his song writing mojo when his pregnant wife was killed in a car accident last year. His friend invites him to Wishing Tree to heal and help out at his Christmas tree farm. Micah never expects the sweet and attractive owner of the bed and breakfast where he’s staying to be the inspiration to get him writing again.
Toby left Wishing Tree at eighteen, intent on leaving behind his pain, including ex-girlfriend Reggie. But circumstances brought him–and his young son–back to town. It’s too bad he and Reggie still have a spark, because his son comes first, and he won’t allow anything–or anyone–to disrupt that order.
I love Mallery’s new setting of Wishing Tree. It’s fun and quirky, just like Fool’s Gold and Happily, Inc. Her characters feel real and have real problems and real reasons why they can’t get together immediately.
There are a couple of adorable dogs, Belle and Burt, that add to the holiday fun.
I highly recommend this book!
I received a free advance copy of this book from the publisher, but that did not induce me to review it, favorably or not. I just happen to love well-written, quirky, small town, holiday romances.
