Will the legendary book Once Upon a Christmas Kiss create another happily ever after?

After Justin Myers’s wife is killed in a violent crime in Los Angeles, he moves to Cherry Creek, Tennessee, hoping his in-laws will help bring stability to his young son’s life. He focuses on his job and his son while fighting through guilt that he contributed to the death of his wife.

Little does he know that Lizzie Williams, a waitress at the local diner, will complicate his life. She has abandonment issues stemming from her parents leaving her as a child. Lizzie's roots are firmly planted in Cherry Creek., her place of security. After getting to know Justin, the lore of the book has her believing there can be a true love, even for her, and that one person could want her forever.

Justin unlocks a world of possibilities for Lizzie empowering her to seize control of her destiny and go after her dreams with newfound strength. Rather than retreating from Justin’s emotional wounds, Lizzie resolves to give him unwavering support and compassion.

Together they work to find the compromise that will bring the best Christmas gift – a forever family.


Heartfelt drama and endearing characters will warm your heart! Another heartwarming tail set in fictional Cherry Creek is sure to appeal to sweet holiday romance fans. I was quickly hooked on the camaraderie waitress Lizzie shares with single father Justin and his adorable son Mason. There is drama and heartache beneath the surface, but the sweet connection between this trio makes for satisfying romance. I really enjoyed them!
