Angie Lopez, a widowed mom, works hard at Singleton’s Jewelers. Sam Singleton, her often-irritating boss, hardly does anything besides work. He doesn’t spend time with friends and family, even around the holidays. That’s why Angie’s the one who winds up taking care of him when a head injury leaves him with amnesia.
As Sam attempts to remember who he is, he learns about the luxurious but empty life he leads…and he’s not impressed. Meanwhile, Angie sees a new side of him as he shares Christmas traditions with her, her son Pepe, and her extended family. Angie shares touching, emotional moments with Sam. But if he gets his memories back, what will happen to her heart?

My Rating: 4.5 stars
AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS is a fun, poignant look at what happens when a man really does get a “do-over” when he loses his memory due to an accident – and doesn’t really like the man he’s been told about. Sam may work hard, live a rich life, rich with things, not people but it isn’t until he has to take a good look at the man he was and the man he’s becoming with Angie and her family that he sees any hope of that good life he’d always believed he already had.
Ginny Baird has, once again, combined a strong message within a story that at times will bring you to tears, tears of either laughter or reaction. Angie takes care of Sam after the accident simply because there is no one else in Sam’s life who could. The journey to recovery is full of emotions, laughter, lightheartedness and some serious rethinking of what makes up a good life. Sam and Angie’s attraction is realistic, believable and will have you flipping pages to see what happens. Although for me, the star of this one is little Pepe – he steals scenes and hearts like crazy.
AN UNFORGETTABLE CHRISTMAS is a story that will grab your heart, tug on your emotions and give you every bit of Christmas magic possible as two seemingly opposites find what truly matters in life with each other. I loved this one and would highly recommend it to any reader of Contemporary or Christmas Romance.
