Reviewing eARC from Netgalley
It's been eight long years since Michael Gallagher has laid eyes on Shay Angel, back when he was a boy from the most prominent family in town and she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. But he hadn't cared about their differences—until one bad decision landed her in jail.
That was years ago and now he's back in Harmony Harbor for the holidays. So when Shay goes missing, Michael is intent on finding her—and finding out if their sizzling attraction is still there. But he's now a district attorney, and it looks like Shay is once again on the wrong side of the law.
Christmas with an Angel by Debbie Mason is a short (and I do mean short, it’s only 4 chapters) story that immediately follows Mistletoe Cottage, giving light to Michael Gallagher after his fiancé leaves him the day before their wedding.
I’ll admit I was curious to see how Michael’s story would play out. He came off as indifferent and aloof in my opinion during Mistletoe Cottage. He was the consummate playboy in his youth and now that he is a man he is ready to settle down. The problem is he chose the wrong woman to do it with. I like Michael. He’s driven and smart, he doesn’t hesitate to go after what he wants. Is he down in this story? Absolutely!! The woman he thought he loved turned out to not be who she thought he was and to be honest he seems relieved. I can’t blame him for that one.
Shay Angel is the girl that got away. Michael fell in love with her as a teen, but his mother had other plans and when Shay was caught with his car at 17, she went to jail and Michael was forced to move on. Now he’s back and her uncle needs his help. Shay is caught up in a scheme that could cost her more than time in jail, it could cost her life. So Michael is on a mission again.
There is a lot of story packed into 54 pages!!! Overall I enjoyed it. It was a quick read over the weekend during this busy holiday season. There’s not a lot of romance for this contemporary romance book, but it does tell a sweet story about two people who never forgot each other. I think it sets up the characters for a story later on if the author so chooses but also gives enough closure to their story that readers can presume what will happen to them. If you’re looking for a quick read and enjoyed Mistletoe Cottage, I highly recommend you pick up a copy asap!
