It’s been years since Wade Montgomery stepped foot in Blessings, Georgia, but the Blessings Christmas spirit is just like he remembers it. The whole town has come together to help his uncle after a disaster nearly destroyed the family business. Being back in Blessings reminds Wade of everything he’s been missing, especially when he runs into his old flame, Birdie Knox.
Bridgette “Birdie” Knox isn’t so eager to jump into the holiday season. Every year, she’s reminded of the secrets that tore her family apart. But with Wade Montgomery back in town, Birdie is starting to believe in Christmas magic. There’s no guarantee Wade will stick around, but if Birdie had her wish, she’d never have to say goodbye to him again.

My Rating: 4 stars
The Christmas Wish is the twelfth title in the Blessing, Georgia series and brings two people back together again, with the possibility of another chance to get young love right this time around… but the past is often difficult to go beyond or to forgive.
I love returning to Blessing, Georgia for another visit with old friends and new members of this tight-knit community. For romance, we have Birdie and Wade reuniting as we watch the flame that has always burned between them ignite once again… this time with the possibility of a lifetime love, if they are willing to take some emotional risks. They have a history, they’ve loved and lost before so watching them find their way back to each other, stronger this time even through adversity was a charming adventure.
And we’ll meet some other members of the community who are also facing issues, decisions this Christmas season. Redemption, forgiveness, and possibilities abound in this small town – but you should discover those situations firsthand to experience the full impact on the characters and on you.
Any story in this series will always give me a really good, emotional read, with hope for those in trouble, and possibilities for the future. If you haven’t discovered Blessings, Georgia yet I’d highly recommend it. In my opinion, it’s a series that builds on the previous stories yet you could step in at any point and find a delightful, often realistic story that will capture your heart — and tempt you to find the others that you haven’t read yet. I enjoyed my time here once again, and am looking forward to a return trip next Spring.
