Publisher Description

Alexis Fletcher hasn’t had a merry Christmas in five years—not since her mother passed away. Every December she remembers the joy her mother brought to everyone during the holiday season and feels the pain of her absence, even more so now that she and her sister are barely speaking. More than anything, Alexis wishes her family could be whole again.

However, with her wedding fast approaching, Alexis might just be ready to make some holiday memories with a new family of her own. Alexis’ fiancé Chase Dupont is everything she ever dreamed of. He’s kind, handsome, fully supportive of Alexis’ career, and the CEO of a large company. But outside forces threaten to derail this happy couple from ever reaching the altar.

As tensions rise, a dramatic event causes Alexis to question everything. Will fate give her what she needs to finally embrace the season that has brought her so much pain? Will she get her wish for a happy holiday? Or will her Christmas prayer go unanswered?

“[An] engrossing tale of what happens when the holidays are full of pain instead of joy and darkness instead of light. The heroine’s grief and depression are depicted so accurately that the reader can feel her increasing hopelessness. Roby’s characters are real people with real struggles, and the joy experienced at the conclusion of the book makes the experience totally satisfying.”
