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.

ARC Romance



I wasn’t sure how I was going to like the characters of Shay Angel and Michael. Both of whom were introduced in book 1. But they totally surprised me at the end. Christmas with an Angel by Debbie Mason is just a short read that gives the reader a glimpse into the mind of Michael.


He needed redemption…

So, he was a jerk. We all know that jerks are never really the hero type unless there was a glimpse of regret in the way they acted. Michael was portrayed as an anti hero type of character in book 1, as the way Sophie remembered him. To be fair they were young and having a relationship. He cheated on her (with Shay Angel) and she also overheard him speaking ill of her with his mother. So yes, I didn’t like him. However, adult Michael appears to be different. Maybe real life brought him down a peg or two or maybe it’s his crazy ass fiance.

In this novella, we only get Michael’s POV and we can get the sense that he is a better man. His love life on the rocks and his teenage fling back in town.  A broken man waiting to be fixed.

Shay Angel, getting her wings back?

Boy is she wild! An ex con, who made me really think about how she of all people could fix her wrong doings. Thankfully, her personality did not rub me the wrong way. She actually seems like a pretty cool chick. But I wish I could’ve had more insight into her thought processes. I guess, it was kept from us because of her big secret at the end. (No, I’m not telling 🙂 )

This really was a different story than what I was expecting. I enjoyed it but was a little dissatisfied at the ending. Hopefully their story is not wrapped up and we’ll continue to get glimpses of it throughout the series. Great potential of it being a great story.

A little note…

If you want a little backstory to these characters, read book 1: Mistletoe Cottage.

Glad to hear the characters surprised you. It sounds neat how you get to see Michael his point of view in this one and get to understand him better. Sounds like this was a fun Christmas read. I am only reading my first two Christmas books right now.
