Waitress Tess Branson has earned a bad reputation, and the nickname “Fast Tessie,” as result of her poor judgment where men are concerned. Tess learned from a young age that men – of all ages – were interested in one thing from her and one thing only. But all Tess ever really wanted was to connect with someone special – to mean something to someone. Lucas Flynn, the short order cook at the restaurant where Tess works, has just been released on parole. He’s trying to get his life back on track, but can’t help noticing the pretty waitress who treats him kindly, despite his past. At Lucas’s urging, Tess makes a wish on a star, but they’ll have to rely on the magic of Christmas to help it come true.
The Christmas Wish is a novella and can be read as a standalone.
The Christmas Wish by Katy Regenery is a sweet holiday romance novella that shows us that sometimes wishes do come true. Tess and Lucas are not your typical couple. They’ve each had some major hardships and difficulties in their past, and I think it’s what brings them together. The story is romantic and believable and I really enjoyed it. I was able to read this as a stand alone, as I haven’t read the first book in the series yet. I’m definitely a fan of Katy Regenery after reading this novella. She crafts stories that work right into your heart with the characters and the dialogue. I liked being able to curl up on the couch this evening and read The Christmas Wish by Katy Regenery, as I looked at my own Christmas tree twinkling nearby.
About the Author
KATY REGNERY, winner of several regional RWA contests, has always loved telling a good story and credits her mother with making funny, heartwarming tales come alive throughout her childhood. A lifelong devotee of all romance writing from Edwardian to present-day, it was just a matter of time before Katy tried her hand at writing a love story of her own.
As it turned out, one love story turned into a series of five Heart of Montana romances, following the love lives of the Yellowstone-based Lindstrom siblings. In addition to small-town contemporary romance, Katy is presently writing a paranormal romance that takes place in northern New England and the forests north of Quebec.
Speaking of forests, Katy lives in the relative-wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut where her writing room looks out at the woods and her husband, two young children and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories of all are the messy and unexpected ones.
