With twinkling humor and heartfelt Christmas spirit, two friends find love in a town called Wishing Tree…

Until Camryn Neff can return to her “real” life in Chicago, she’s in Wishing Tree to care for her twin sisters. She’s not looking for forever love, not here. But handsome hotelier Jake Crane is a temptation she can’t resist, so she suggests they pair up for the season. No golden rings, no broken hearts. At his side, she sees her hometown through Christmas-colored eyes. The cheer is cheerier, the joy more joyful. She thought she had put her future on hold…but maybe her real life was here all along, waiting for her to come home.
New in town, River Best is charmed by Wishing Tree’s homespun traditions and warmhearted people. When she’s crowned Snow Queen, she’s honored but wary. Dylan Tucker, her king, seems like the stuff of sugarplum dreams, but she can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something big. As they perform their “royal” duties—tasting cookies, lighting trees—Dylan’s good humor and melty kisses draw her to the brink of love. But she can’t let herself fall until she uncovers his secret, even if her lack of faith means losing him forever.

🎧︎Home Sweet Christmas by Susan Mallery is the second book in the Wishing Tree series.  I had a blast re-visiting the town of Wishing Tree. A town that fills you with cheer and warm Christmassy feelings. Once you come to Wishing Tree you will not want to leave, making Home Sweet Christmas the perfect holiday read.

If you are looking for a heartwarming holiday story, then 🎧︎Home Sweet Christmas is the perfect read. When it comes to heartwarming stories, Mallery is a master and she did not disappoint in her latest novel. I enjoyed getting to know the characters featured  and reconnecting with those from the previous book.

Like the previous we get not one but two romances. I loved how both romances developed. The main couple Jake and Camryn had no interest in a relationship due issues from both their past. However, interference from a meddling mom who desperately wanted grandchildren would see these two slowly falling for each other.

The second couple Dylan and River dreamed of finding their special someone. Their relationship blossomed nicely, but secrets  and fears threatened their budding relationship. 

Tanya Eby narrated. She did an excellent in bringing the story to life. She’s a new to me narrator, but I really enjoyed the way she brought life to the story and the characters. So I wouldn’t hesitate to listen to her again.
