I don't know what it is about this series except that it must be the magic the writers put in it. This is the second set released with Having read all of the first from last year. So far this is the second one from this set I have read but that is ok if out of order you still get transported to this place with these women and their stories. As part of a program to give them second chance to get a better path, each with their own circumstance for being in it. In this one it is Lindsey that gets one of the women as her worker, Sadie. She has a very special reason one that will pull at your heart strings for sure. She will be helping in the bakery developing her skills but also working toward winning her back placement with her infant daughter. The story itself behind it is one that she is caught up with a charmer but also dangerous one with it almost costing her everything. Until he is caught though she must stay keep to the quiet almost hiding until she is safe. But hen there is to be a story on the farm with that opening the door for her to meet Gus. At first he is not to thrilled with this assignment but love will work it's magic and with him right away seeing a beautiful woman. I had a wonderful time with their story pulling me with them the author weaving her magic with it all with the sweetest warmest ending that will leave twinkle in your eye.
This story is a continuation from the Forever Christmas series from 2014 that included four stories of a group of friends by four authors. This story will read as a standalone, it does have the four ladies from last year and adds four new ones into the mix. These stories include four women who seek a second chance in life and are working as apprentices at the Forever Christmas tree farm and shops.
Sadie has basically been in hiding from a violent man that changed after she became involved with him. She never tells him her secret, that she was pregnant. Now she is going to train in a new job and hoping that she will learn and be able to get a stable job, an apartment and get her precious baby back. But when reporter Gus comes to Forever Christmas along with a photographer for a multiple series stories, will he uncover her secret and place her and those around her in danger. This story offers mystery and suspense with a chance for romance and happiness. A great cast of characters that will entertain with heartwarming moments. Disclosure: I received and e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions, and ratings are my own.
Set in the fictional town of Glenville in the wonderful Forever Christmas series, Sadie's Christmas is the story of a woman who is working hard to salvage her life after a horrific experience. Well-written characters draw you into a contemporary story fraught with danger and consequences with the holidays as a backdrop. I highly recommend this Christmas short story to anyone looking for a modern, suspenseful read. Hallmark Channel needs pick up this great Forever Christmas series!
