There’s no place like seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, at Christmas—and there’s nothing like a wedding, the warmth of the holidays, and an old crush, to create the perfect new start…

Interior designer Fiona McCrae has left fast-paced Manhattan to move back home to peaceful Blueberry Cove. But she’s barely arrived before she’s hooked into planning her big sister Hannah’s Christmas wedding—in less than seven weeks. The last thing she needs is for her first love, Ben Campbell, to return to neighboring Snowflake Bay…

As kids, Fiona was the bratty little sister Ben mercilessly teased—while pining after Hannah. But Fi never once thought of Ben like a brother. And that hasn’t changed. Except Fi is all grown up. Will Ben notice her now? More importantly, with her life in a jumble, should he? Or might the romance of the occasion, the spirit of the season, and the gifts of time ignite a long-held flame for many Christmases to come…

Something old might just become something new…

Includes a delicious wedding cake recipe!

“Done with her highly successful but inwardly unsatisfying interior design career in New York, Fiona McCrae heads home to Blueberry Cove to reconnect with her small-town roots and put her new business plan into action. Landscape architect Ben Campbell, her secret teenage crush and her older brother’s best friend, has come back to town to take care of his family’s Christmas tree business, and he’s even hotter than Fi remembers. Now her life is going to get a lot more complicated—and that doesn’t even take into account the Christmas wedding she’s been talked into planning for her older sister. VERDICT Sassy, witty, and sexy, this spirited, sibling-centered romance sees one sister wed and the other engaged—and with a moving epilog it sets the stage for the youngest sister’s adventure. Kauffman (Sea Glass Sunrise) lives in northern Virginia.”

“Ben Campbell has also moved back to neighboring Snowflake Bay to run his family’s Christmas tree farm, after his parents moved to South Carolina for his father’s health. Ben left town after high school to open a landscaping business in Portsmouth but has come home to run the farm for the season. Ben has a satellite tree lot in Blueberry Cove for those people who don’t want to go to the farm and cut their own. Ben is a good friend of Logan McCrae, Fi’s brother and the town sheriff, so all of the McCraes know him well.

Fi has had a secret crush on Ben since she was the bratty little sister of Logan, and Ben was trying to catch Hannah’s attention, who is Fi’s older sister. Fi had dreams about being Ben’s girlfriend and had never really gotten over his treating her like a kid and calling her fireplug, a nickname Fi hates to this day.

When Ben and Fi run into each other at Logan’s house the day Fi gets back to town, she is surprised to see him and can’t believe the old thoughts that start running through her mind. Especially since she is in an embarrassing situation of having her scarf and hair all tangled up together. When Ben calls her fireplug she decides that he can’t see how grown-up she is and tries to get him out of her head.

Ben has a lot to do with the farm and tree lots, as well as checking in with his business in Portsmouth. Fi is trying to get Hannah’s wedding plans done and moving into her new residence and business. Even though Ben finally sees the woman Fi has become and wants to get to know her better, there is not enough hours in the day. When Fi’s Uncle Fergis is taken to the hospital after suffering a stroke, she is stretched even further while helping to run his pub.

All-in-all this is a fun-loving, heart-stopping tale of two young people who want to get to know each other better as adults and leave the childhood hurts behind them. Fi knows Ben will probably sell the farm after the season is over and move back to Portsmouth, and Fi has just moved back where she wants to stay. Will Ben and Fi be able to find a happy medium between their complicated lives to find a place together?

I totally enjoyed this latest book by Donna Kauffman in her Brides of Blueberry Cove series. I love the family dynamics with big brother Logan watching over his three sisters, plus the whole town, as sheriff. These sisters have run Logan a merry chase over the years but love him dearly. I give this book 5 Blue Ribbons on Romance Junkies because I laughed and sniffled my way through it until the very end. This is a wonderful Christmas story for keeping to read again.” 5 Blue Ribbons
