A brand new contemporary romance series from USA Today bestselling author Hope Ramsay centered on a small-town wedding chapel!

A season of hope…'Tis the season in Shenandoah Falls and the first time Willow Peterson has been home in years. But she's determined to fulfill the wishes of her recently deceased best friend and restore Eagle Hill Manor to its former glory—all in time to host the perfect holiday wedding. She just has to get the owner of the historic inn to hire her. Unfortunately, that means dealing with Scrooge himself...

After the death of his wife, David Lyndon has a bah-humbug approach to Christmas. But as December counts down and the wedding planning is in full swing, it's harder and harder to stay immune to the charms of Willow, especially when he sees how much joy she brings his eight-year-old daughter. After a simple kiss under the mistletoe turns into something more, David is hoping he can turn the magic of the holiday season into the love of a lifetime.
Willow Peterson finally returns home... with a tarnished reputation. A reputation for standing up for what is right. But it's been years. She had even missed her best friends funeral. While there she runs into her goddaughter and best friends widowed spouse David. Feelings start to stir toward David but she tramps them down citing best friends husband (even though she has passed).

David is bah-humbug especially this time of year, it's been two years since his wife passed. He does what is expected of him, coming from a political family, but his heart isn't into it.

Willow makes him see things in a different way and attraction takes shape.

Will these two come together?

This story has a great premise, but I was often left confused with introductions to many characters. Overall I liked the story line and the ending.
