Christmas Book Review: No Ordinary Christmas

* First in a new series * 

The quaint New England town of Mistletoe is thrilled to welcome back one of their own, Dante West. Now a famous Hollywood action star, Dante is filming a movie in town to help the local economy, as well as make amends with the people he hurt when he abruptly left Mistletoe all those years ago.

Librarian Lucy Marshall isn't thrilled to see Dante. He was once her best friend and first love until he left her behind without a word of goodbye. When Dante makes her an offer she can't refuse -- use of the library as a filming venue in exchange for a lucrative donation, Lucy finds herself spending a lot of time in Dante's company. With the magic of Christmas in the air, Dante and Lucy begin to forge a new bond. But can two people leading such different lives find lasting love the second time around? - Summary from publisher 

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this small town - second chance romance. I loved getting to know the characters in town - from the children to the parents and everyone in between. I enjoyed watching Dante attempt to make up for this youthful mistake - with his brother and with Lucy. I loved Lucy - especially being a librarian. But the term Head Librarian confused me - was she the Library Director? was she the Adult/Reference Librarian? Besides that, it was delightful. I love the Hollywood stories. I'm looking forward to spending more time in Mistletoe Maine!

Cover Thoughts: Adorable!
