This little novella goes a bit deeper than the average Christmas or love triangle story. [SPOILER ALERT] The heroine, appropriately named Marley, is jilted by her fiance in the weeks before the holidays, only to be courted by a waiter at her favorite restaurant. The fiance, Michael, is staid, money-motivated, and a dedicated climber of social ladders; the waiter, Rob, is more of a free spirit, with a past that's taught him to look more deeply at people to see what's really there. Marley isn't just choosing the man she'll marry; she's selecting her lifestyle and values at the same time. [END SPOILER ALERT]

Elaine Cantrell's writing is direct and easily followed, with just the right details described to pull the reader into the story without dictating the scene being imagined. Her characters are fun although they could be even more deeply developed, and the moment when Marley makes her final decision is wonderful. (I'd have laughed at him, too.) Five stars on the story and writing.
