 Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen)  (gatadelafuente) | 3737 comments This thread is to discuss Christmas at Friday Harbor.

Book Description:

***New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas's new series begins during the most magical time of year

ONE LITTLE GIRL NEEDS A FAMILY One rain-slicked night, six-year-old Holly lost the only parent she knew, her beloved mother Victoria. And since that night, she has never again spoken a word.

ONE SINGLE MAN NEEDS A WIFE The last thing Mark Nolan needs is a six-year-old girl in his life. But he soon realizes that he will do everything he can to make her life whole again. His sister's will gives him the instructions: There's no other choice but you. Just start by loving her. The rest will follow.

SOMETIMES, IT TAKES A LITTLE MAGIC... Maggie Collins doesn't dare believe in love again, after losing her husband of one year. But she does believe in the magic of imagination. As the owner of a toy shop, she lives what she loves. And when she meets Holly Nolan, she sees a little girl in desperate need of a little magic.

...TO MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE Three lonely people. Three lives at the crossroads. Three people who are about to discover that Christmas is the time of year when anything is possible, and when wishes have a way of finding the path home...

Thanks Danielle!


Susan Gorman | 400 comments I enjoyed this book, too!
Carol--you will love it!


Carol Cork *Young at Heart Oldie* (httpsrakesandrascalswordpresscom) | 2140 comments Thanks Susan! I'm really looking forward to starting it.


jingles I just finished this one and was really disappointed.

I liked the story line, and thought it was great. It didn't seem to develop well though - at least not for me.

Everything just seemed so rushed, especially towards the end. We're told about all these obstacles, but then all of a sudden they were just swept away, and it all falls into place - way to easy.

I kept waiting for something big to happen.

I will continue on with the next book in the series.


Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 4782 comments Sorry it didn't do it for you, jingles. To each her own. I just LOVE this novella. I now have it on audio and listened to it again on Christmas Eve.


Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 4782 comments I'm glad you are going to continue reading Kleypas!

Joeera  | 254 comments I liked it well enough but I didn't love it like I do her Hathaway series.It just didn't capture me I don't know if I will read the rest of the series. The movie was good but I thought all three actors that played the role of the brothers were wrong.


Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 4782 comments Yes, the casting was a bit off.

Heidi | 871 comments I watched the movie for the second time the other night. Nothing like the book. Was not impressed with the actors or actress picked to play the roles. No chemistry between leads at all!
