Mac Taylor finds out the lengths to which his mischievous twin boys will go to find him the Christmas gift of new love.
A lovely novella written by one of my favorite authors. Mac is a single dad to identical twin boys Zeke and Zack. The boys, while in their treehouse, write a letter to Santa asking for ‘The Mom’. A new school year and a new music teacher, Nell.
Nell has a backstory, while not overly complicated, which explains her desire to live the quiet life in Taylor’s Grove. I really liked Nell’s gumption with respect to the school choral program for the Christmas show. You could just tell that this character really cared for her students, above and beyond a normal teacher.
Mac has a touching backstory as to how he came to be a single dad. He has closed himself off emotionally for the sake of raising his boys. His family values were very evident in this story. One could not help but root for a love story between these two. It is not all smooth sailing, but the journey was cute and endearing.
I loved this quick, easy, romantic novella. Just a great little story filled with Christmas cheer and good feelings.
