When it comes to family and Christmas, #1 New York Times Bestselling author Sherryl Woods always looks to the O'Briens for a little holiday magic...
For the very driven medical student, Caitlyn Winters, catching the bridal bouquet at a Christmas wedding has set off a chain reaction that she's sure is more curse than blessing. Not only has she fallen in love with family medicine resident Noah McIlroy, but an unexpected pregnancy threatens her well-laid plans for the future. It doesn't help that Noah—with a whole lot of help from her O'Brien relatives—is completely on board with the prospect of marriage and happily-ever-after.
It takes a whole lot of patience, love and family persuasion to help Caitlyn realize that she can still have everything she ever wanted, including a home in her beloved Chesapeake Shores and a man who understands all of her dreams.
There aren't any surprises with The Christmas Bouquet. You know going in that there's going to be a happy ending. You know that Caityln is going to have to come to terms with her pregnancy and that she's not going to be able to fulfill her dream of going to Africa. What I didn't expect was for Noah to be so caring and understanding, knowing what Caitlyn needed and doing whatever it took to give her time to come to grips with her new reality.
I seriously love the O’Brien family and the Chesapeake Shores series. But the fact that the family was constantly pressuring Caitlyn to get married to the child’s father was really old-fashioned. I found it to be very frustrating that no one seemed to understand or care that her unplanned pregnancy was going to mean that her dream for the future was over.
But with all of that said, I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
