A Diamond in her Stocking by Kandy Sheperd

Reviewed by Desere

Who doesn't love a Christmas wedding, and when written by one of today's best selling authors , it's total perfection!

Single mom and Chef Lizzie Dumont is moving on, returning to Dolphin Bay to make a her new restaurant a success. And therefore has absolutely no time whatsoever for Mr Jaw-dropping handsome Jesse Morgan! But forgetting that incredible kiss they once shared, is not quite as easy.

Jesse can't forget their kiss either but the betrayal in Lizzie's past has made her wary of him, and he hates that she cannot see past his reputation as a heart-breaker. So now he's on a mission, a mission to change her mind and get her to be the Christmas present he has always wanted.

I love this author's books and this one arrived during a very stressful part of my life . Knowing that this author's work is always guaranteed to cheer me up , I dug in the second life allowed me to do so. And it completely worked, for four hours I was able to escape life and at the end of the read walk away from the read with a new found feeling of hope and knowing that everything happens for a reason and in the end there will always be a light somehow , somewhere all you need is to be able to look for the light while you're stuck in the darkness.

I loved the vibrant characters and most especially their flaws , the author did a remarkable job at showing that these characters are just like the people we see , hear about and meet everyday. They are simply people who have made mistakes, taking the wrong turn and have to fight to find a way back to the point where their happiness starts.

It's a story about leaning to move past the moment from the past that is holding you back, it's about learning how to look past what you hear about a person and rather trust yourself to see a person through your own eyes instead of the image the world has conjured up.

I highly recommend this read for all fans who love romances reads that shines like a bright diamond during the darkest of hours. A heartwarming , sensual read.
