Countdown to Christmas--12 days left!
When attorney Riley Harper comes home to Maple Ridge following the death of his grandfather, the last thing he expects to find is Kaylee McKenna living in his grandparents' guesthouse. Though he and Kaylee were once best friends, Riley cannot find it in his heart to forgive her for the death of his mother. His heart, full of bitterness and resentment, has room for little else.
Kaylee has no time to dwell on events of the past, especially where Riley's concerned; she's too busy raising her six-year-old niece, Rosie, and working as an ER nurse. With Christmas quickly approaching, her days are spent helping with charity events and filling the wishes on Rosie's Christmas list.
But when Rosie's father makes an unexpected visit, Kaylee must call on Riley's legal expertise to ensure Rosie of a safe and secure future. Will Rosie's special Christmas wish heal Riley's damaged heart and bind the trio together as a forever-family?

This author had me captivated from the first paragraph. Christmas Wishes Special Delivery is a beautiful and entertaining story of second chances, perfect for the Christmas season. The characters are strong and lovable, wounded, and dealing with real issues. Rosie (the little girl) stole my heart as well as Riley's. I love the cover art. I can't wait to read more from Mary Manners.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
