Christmas At Twilight is one of the most emotional holiday stories I've read. It's poignant, angsty, and heartbreaking, but it's also hopeful and joyous! Meredith and Hutch are two amazing people who get more than Christmas magic, they get a miracle - the kind that comes from finding your soul mate, just when you thought you'd forever be alone.

A very sweet book, which addressed very serious topics, from PTSD to personality disorders. Recently someone that I know was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and I thought Lori Wilde did a very impressive job in writing the ups and downs that are associated with a personality disorders.

Let's throw Meredith in on top of that, this woman is running for her and her son's life from a truly crazy son of a bitch. She settles in the lovely to...more

The underlying tone of this story is very sad. I say that, because much of the ...more
Christmas at Twilight by Lori Wilde is one of the best “feel-good” holiday books that I have read. It has a very heartwarming story that is deep, touching, with a touch of sadness that raises the bar for HEA’s – at least in my opinion.
