For her daughter, she’ll do anything. Even marry a man she hardly knows.
Widowed Melanie Montana has spent far too many holidays sitting beside hospital beds with people she loves. But not this year. Knowing it could be their last, she’s vowed to make it the best ever Christmas for her four-year-old daughter, Alia.
With the support of the Chapel Cove townsfolk, she’ll find ways to make all Alia’s dreams come true. Lots of books and reading a story together every single night – tick. A sleigh ride in the snow – tick. A steam train ride- tick. Even her own pony – tick. That’s the easy part.
The biggest item on Alia’s list is more of a challenge – a daddy for Christmas. And not just any daddy. Alia knows exactly who she wants her mommy to marry. The man she calls Dr. Santa, better known as pediatrician Dr. Mark Stewart. When they’ve both been hurt before and closed their hearts to love, only a Christmas miracle can give Melanie and Mark a happy-ever-after.
But when God, as well as the determined child, seems to be pushing them together, how can they possibly resist?
