Enhance your purchase
Susan Mallery, author of the Fool’s Gold romances, cheerfully invites you to Wishing Tree, where Christmas comes to life…
The Somerville sisters believe in love, but they’ve lost faith it will happen for them. Reggie hasn’t been home since the end of the world’s shortest engagement. When her parents decide to renew their vows, she buffs up her twinkle to help with the Christmas wedding. Unexpectedly, Toby, her first love, is back too, and the spark between them shines as brightly as ever. In the spirit of the season, will they let go of past hurts and greet the New Year together?
Done waiting for the one, Dena is pregnant and on her own—on purpose. But then a gorgeous, sad-eyed songwriter checks in to a room at her inn. Micah, unable to write since he lost his wife, finds inspiration in Dena’s determination to be a mom. One snowflake-speckled kiss and he’s a goner. But Dena is afraid to believe that a rock star could fall for a cookie-cutter small-town girl like her.
As the Christmas wedding draws closer, these two sisters just might unwrap the most treasured gift of all—love.
Don't miss The Summer Getaway by Susan Mallery where one woman discovers the beauty in chaos in a poignant and heartwarming story about the threads that hold family together.

Dena and Reggie are what all sisters should be, they are always there for each other. Loved the closeness that they share and they will do anything for each other.
For all of the dog lovers, Belle the great dane will steal your hearts. Love all her outfits and such a big part of the family.
Loved all the traditions and celebrations that Wishing Tree does for the holiday season. So many new friends, I cant wait to visit again. I highly recommend this heart warming Christmas tale with two romances.
I loved all the characters and pets Susan introduced. The story was a page turner filled with humor, love and hope.

Someone pass me the gin…
I am a wreck!
*reluctantly sits up*
Good lawd *waves hand*, that is too many emotions to pack into the one story.
Must. Pull. Yourself. Together. Laura.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year… especially when you can call Wishing Tree home, isn’t it?
*screams into the void* Isn’t it?!
Well, I don’t know if Reggie Somerville will agree with that sentiment. Not this year anyway *snorts*.
Being unceremoniously dumped by her fiancé of just two days the previous year has kinda taken the shine off returning home this festive season. *sings* Understatement! But needs must and all that, eh? With her parents’ wedding vow renewal ceremony to help plan and her pregnant teacher-sister, Dena, needing assistance with a school charity project, it’s all hands-on deck!
These sisters are doing it for themselves! *snaps fingers* (Quite literally in Dena’s case – why wait for Mr Right to start a family?!)
Oh la la, where do I even begin? Susan Mallery has done it again! Knocked it right outta the park. BAM! Right in the feels! Honestly, this story is like getting a plate for an all you can eat buffet! It was a veritable feast.
I have to make a confession. I fell a little in love with a certain character (*whispers* Micah). He brought the swoon. I just couldn’t help myself. Not when there were pressure points involved… *zips lips*
If you love second-chance romance, single-parent romance, love after loss, family relationships/dynamics, friendships (that resonate), humour, a touch of suspense along with one of the best dog characters EVER to appear in a book, then TCWG is the read for you!
Heartwarming festive feel-good fun. You can’t ask for more. Am I right?
