Are second chances possible? They can be in North Bend.

Alex West left North Bend behind and became the famous author RR Taylor. He’s happy with his jet-setting lifestyle, until a book signing brings him to North Bend. Surrounded by the beauty of the small town and the closeness of the community, he starts to rethink his reasons for leaving. Seeing his high-school flame, Molly Adams, brings all the old feelings back into focus. He wants to make her Christmas bright and win her heart, too.

Can he convince her to believe in the magic of Christmas and their second chance, or is the blossoming romance destined to melt with the holiday snow?

Spending Christmas in the small town of North Bend and falling in love sounds magical. I enjoyed reading this heartwarming, slow burn Christmas story. It takes place in the small town of North Bend and it gives Alex and Molly a second chance at love. I found it easy to connect to Alex and Molly and I also enjoyed all the secondary characters included in this story. Alex and Molly are vulnerable and afraid of being hurt but with Christmas in the air, and with their friends and families help, they just might decide to take a chance on love.

After becoming a successful author Alex returns to his hometown of North Bend for a visit during Christmas. Alex hopes he can reconnect with his former high school girlfriend Molly and make amends for his past mistakes. When he visits North Bend Alex realizes that although he has achieved his dreams of becoming a successful writer, he isn’t fulfilled. Alex knows he has been selfish and didn’t treat Molly fairly. I admired Alex for being able to admit he made some mistakes and would like a second chance.

Molly has a big heart and is full of kindness. She is so busy helping everyone she has little time for herself. She is afraid to trust Alex because he broke her heart once and she doesn’t want it to happen again. I liked Molly, she is a good person and deserves to be happy.

Alex and Molly are perfect for each other and I could feel the chemistry they shared with each of their encounters. North Bend is full of Christmas spirit and the perfect place to spend Christmas. Reading this engaging story filled me with optimism and left me with a good feeling.
