    Good book to curl up with!

    At 17 yrs old, Melissa married Lawrence, in the belief that he would provide her with the loving home that she craved. However, he soon showed his true colours, and, after several years of domination and intimidation, Melissa finally took a stand and divorced him. She set up a home for herself and her small son, who had been terrified of his father, and who remained shy and retiring, lacking any confidence; she vowed that never again would a man tell her what to do, in fact, men had pretty much become extinct as far as she was concerned. Enter Daniel – a hot and determined ex tennis star, turned successful tennis coach and entrepreneur. I got into the story very quickly – and then found it hard to leave it alone until I had finished it the same day. I did get a bit frustrated with the heroine at times, wanted to give her a bit of a shake, but on the whole I had a lot of sympathy for her position, especially after reading about her early years. The villain of the piece was suitably nasty without being violent, and redeemed himself somewhat at the end. And of course, I could certainly fancy the hero – he was painted clearly but not too much, so that one’s own imagination could come into play, and the sex scenes were neither overdone nor overpowering, and not too descriptive – just about right in my opinion. I often lose patience with novels, skipping paragraphs or even large chunks, but I did not skip anything in this one – I was hooked! I enjoyed the small amount of gentle humour that popped up very naturally, and also shed a few tears towards the end as for once, I did not guess how the plot would be resolved, an aspect which I really liked – and it was so simple really, very believable. All in all – a good read!

    Beautifully written. A perfect Christmas read.

    The cover of A Second Christmas Wish is just so deliciously tempting I defy anyone to resist peeking beneath. The prologue is equally tempting, giving a concise backdrop and a glimpse into Melissa’s marriage to the cold and psychologically controlling dark eyed, Lawrence. It’s beautifully written, one sentence in particular the man utters making you sympathetic to Melissa and her son immediately. Thus hooked, we move on two years to find Melissa now divorced and, not surprisingly, putting love and the hurt it will surely bring aside to dedicate her time to her son, William, who is frightened of his own father and dreadfully shy – no surprise there either. In hopes of bringing William out of his shell, Melissa encourages him to take tennis lessons and we meet Daniel, a tennis coach, who is everything Lawrence isn’t, and hot to boot. He’s also a bit of a charmer, thus warned off flirting with Melissa. Daniel, however, is smitten and is determined to put a smile back on her face. The question is, can he? The bond between Daniel and William is magical, watching this little boy grow is as heartwarming as our first glimpse of him is heartbreaking. We so want the sparkle of Christmas to be rekindled for him. A Second Christmas Wish really is the perfect story in the run up to the festive season. Grab a copy, curl up and indulge.

    A Second Christmas Wish

    Kathryn is the next author I have found. I am so glad I got this book to read. This is set in England and is contemporary. Keep tissues close. Melissa was a model for her husband until she got pregnant and he went off. She divorced as he terrified his son. She put William in a tennis class to try to help his shy problem. Melissa is also scared of men but she is OK with Daniel and she followed him on the tours. He teaches as he has an injury that ends his career. William in is old enough to run away from Lawrence, his father. Daniel steps in. He wants Solliam to help not being so closed. I really didn't like Lawrence and he gets mad when Melissa won't let William in alone with him. He pops up at the end too. Melissa is worried and won't marry. Daniel asks but she won't. I recommend this book for anyone to read it. Wait for the end of the story. Check it out to see if it is for your! Don't let this book slip away! Enjoy reading this book! You won't regret it!
