4 of 5 StarsThe Christmas Cottage
Ava and Lacey have been best friends since they were kids. Now they are planning Ava’s wedding to Mason. Ava and Mason are not seeing eye to eye on their future together. Ava had heard stories that anyone staying at their family cottage would have everlasting love so she was determined if she and Mason stayed there on their wedding night everything would be fine.
While decorating the cottage for Ava, Lacey reconnects with Ava’s brother Ean. Snowed in together at the cottage rekindles some underlying feeling they have for each other. This affection turns quickly into an everlasting love.
I enjoyed reading this book, it shows you should never settle in life, but to always be open to the unexpected.
After Ava and Mason cancelled their wedding and passed the planned event to a surprised Ean and Lacey, Ava felt like her happily ever after was never going to happen. An unplanned meeting with Mason’s best friend Brian who had confessed his feelings for Ava the night of her wedding, has Ava feeling things she does not think she deserves. Looking for a fresh start and possible relocation for a new job has her keeping her possible relationship with Brian off in the distance.
After finally letting Brian into her life she pushes him away because of her obsession with the Cottage. She finally realizes that
Life is not a fairy tale and that she needs to allow herself to be happy. Ava know Brian is her happily ever after.
