Where everyday dreams come true!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ginny Baird continues her heartwarming holiday series...

Northern Virginia attorney Ben Winchester has spent the past four years being the best single dad he could be to his eight-year-old daughter Lily. Yet, last Christmas, he was unable to give her the one thing she asked for: a mommy. Since his late-wife's death, Ben has scarcely dated at all. He's also had a hard time with the holidays. When Ben and Lily venture to Christmas Town, Tennessee for Ben's sister's December wedding, they discover a village infused with holiday joy. Upbeat Sandy Claus runs the Snow Globe Gallery...loves sleigh bells, winter and kids. She has a special way about her, and is the most caring and intuitive person Ben has ever met. When Ben finds himself falling for the beautiful blonde with big blue eyes, she hesitates about becoming involved due to some unusual family history. Despite complications that ensue, will true love prevail with Ben making his--and Lily's--fondest Christmas wishes come true?

REVIEW

A Mommy for Christmas is a light closed door romance, that’s overly sweet.  Ben Winchester is a single father to an eight-year-old little girl, Lily.  Sandy Claus is a gallery owner and one of Ben’s sister's best friends. While in town for his sister’s pre-wedding party the two bump into each other at Hannah’s cookie shop.  The Christmas Cookie Shop is known to make inspired cookies.  This time of year, the Commitment Cookie (believed to inspire true love) is very popular.  After this encounter,  the two can't seem to stop thinking about each other.  Their attraction intensifies after Ben mistakenly eats a Commitment Cookie given to him by Sandy.  

I really liked the characters of Ben, Sandy, and Lily.  Together, they make a lovely family unit.  Lily is very pushy in wanting a Mommy and she doesn’t hide that fact.  I love that Ginny Baird throws in little clues as to who future couples are going to be.  Even little Lily is hinted at having a relationship when she’s older.  

A Mommy for Christmas was truly an enjoyable read.  I just found the story to be a little too sweet for my taste.  I also found myself questioning the actions of Ben and Sandy and wondering if they were truly sincere.  I know that’s an odd thing to say, but I really wanted to know if Ben and Sandy fell for each other naturally or if Ben eating a cookie given to him by Sandy sparked their relationship.  I also found myself comparing this story to the first book in the series, The Christmas Cookie Shop.  I LOVED that story and it was just a little hard for me not to compare the two.  

A Mommy for Christmas is a standalone read, however you will definitely want to read all the books in the series.  I think you’ll find yourself invested in the secondary characters just as much as the main characters and wanting to see them get their happily-ever-afters as well.
