A Christmas by the Sea by Melody Carlson






When Wendy Harper inherits her family's beachside cottage in Seaside, Maine, she sees it as a way to finally pay off the debts that have mounted since her husband died. But before it can be sold, the neglected property must be renovated. She and her 12-year-old son Jackson move in--temporarily, she reminds him--in order to do the work themselves, even though Christmas is coming. The charming town, along with local craftsman Caleb Colton, pulls on both Wendy and Jackson, who even registers himself for school in a bid to get his mom to move them there permanently. Wendy knows that the most responsible thing to do is to sell the cottage and return to Ohio, but the lure of the sea is hard to resist.

Join award-winning author Melody Carlson for a Christmas story that will warm your heart and have you dreaming of your own enchanted seaside holiday.

My Review




I loved this story, the author has given us a story about rebirth, building a life after the death of a loved one.
I could just picture Jackson a young teenage still reeling from the death of his father, not happy and being bullied at his school in Ohio, and now a breath of fresh air, a new beginning, and at the ocean.
His mother, and the friendly local have both lost someone they loved, is there a chance that they are now in the right place at the right time?
This is a warm your heart Christmas story, and I am so glad to have read it!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
