Cute story but only 59 pages....should have been free instead of $2.99. Don't bother.....

This was a great short story. I loved When We Found Home. It introduced us to the Carlesso family and three wonderful characters. When it ended, both Malcolm and Callie's lives were heading toward a great future. But Kiera was still young and adjusting to her new life and family. I was glad that Susan Mallery thought about completing Keira's story. It is several years later and she is in college with a bright future ahead of her in the family business. Who would have thought that her generosity toward a sick lab helper at Christmas time would eventually lead to a love interest of her own. Well done!

Disappointing! Thought I was buying a full length book (product details said 384 pages), but it was actually a novella or short story, only 59 pages long.

Sweet story, leaves you rooting for the couple and love at Christmas. Although it was a stand-alone, it continued with the characters from When We Found Home, which is another awesome book.

Keira Carlesso and Dalton meet and she takes him home for Christmas. They have Christmas together several years before they both admit that they have fallen in love. It was really nice to read about Keira all grown up after meeting her as a young teen in When We Found Home. I was so happy to read about the other happy couples and see how they are doing. Awesome short book.

Loved, loved this story of Keira and Dalton. Keira befriends Dalton, who was going to spend the holidays in his car. They soon become close friends and make a pact to celebrate the holidays together every year, even if they are dating other people. Through the years they find they are both hiding something from each other. This is novella but a packed full story, that I could not put down. I was so excited to see Keira all grown up. Once again Susan Mallery has worked her magic in this wonderful Christmas story that I highly recommend.
