by Nancy Thayer. A somewhat sappy, ‘Lifetime movie-like’ novel that I kept saying I was going to put down and stop reading, but somehow enjoyed just the same. Newlyweds Nicole and Sebastian live on the island and are about to celebrate their first Christmas together. Sebastian has a grown daughter from his first marriage, Kennedy, who is about to give birth to her second child. Kennedy is spoiled and rude and wants her parents to get back together. A winter storm, an unexpected early delivery, a stray dog, and other devices meant to tug at your heartstrings are used to draw the reader in. Although I did not care about the characters at all, it was easy. mindless fluff for a few hours of reading when you want something shallow and not intense.
