Courtney J. Hall takes a detour from sixteenth-century Europe in A Holiday Wish, the first book in the Silver Bells series. In what is sure to be an entertaining journey, Hall brings readers to contemporary small-town America, where secrets, betrayals, and lies combine to create a perfect storm of mystery and romance set against the glittering backdrop of the Christmas season.
When wedding planner Noelle Silver's fiancé ditches her for another woman, she can't think of anything better to do than pack up her business and head back to her hometown, her divorced mom, and her pregnant sister. Then orphaned heiress Brooke St. John shows up with a $25,000 check and a refusal to take no for an answer.
Even though she's reluctant, Noelle decides to use the money to start a new life and make Brooke's Christmas Eve wedding to a much older man her last hurrah. But with the best man, Brooke's gorgeous brother Everett doing everything he can to keep the nuptials from happening, Noelle has to figure out if she still has what it takes to plan the wedding of the century—or if she'll keep letting her broken heart call the shots.
“Memorable characters, a frantic scramble to put together a Christmas wedding, and an unexpected attraction. A Holiday Wish is a beautiful story about finding yourself again when all seems lost.”—Nikki Lynn Barrett, USA Today Bestselling Author
