Piper Wyatt’s Christmas wish is to get promoted to manager at Blackstock Hotel and Resort. Not only does the promotion mean more money, but it means more time with her son and proof that she’s not such a disappointment after all.
Jace Petersen, successful owner of a national chain of sporting goods stores, finds himself alone and miserable on what should have been his honeymoon. That is until he literally falls onto the lovely Piper Wyatt. He’s intrigued with this woman who can fix a car in high heels. Too bad for him, he makes a horrible first impression, and Piper’s not allowed to mingle with the guests.
While Piper tries her best to steer clear of Jace during his stay, she can’t help but notice he’s not the man from their first meeting. But is he worth risking her promotion? Or is Jace right, Piper deserves more than she ever thought possible for herself?

Life hasn’t turned out exactly how any of the seven best friends once believed it would. All have scattered now, each has reasons to believe that the others wouldn’t want them back in their lives. And each couldn’t have been more wrong. The one thing that is a constant in the life of every girl, now woman, is Miss Anna Cate. A woman who filled the role of mentor, confident, friend and mother figure. If anyone can bring them all back to Christmas Falls and each other it will be this amazing, much loved woman.
For Piper, life took that unexpected turn when the man she’d married found that fatherhood simply wasn’t for him. Well rid of the man, she at least has the one good thing he did leave her… Finn. One adorable, rambunctious, loving little boy who is growing up far too fast but for now still wants all the Legos and Light Sabers in the world for Christmas. It’s for his sake that she’s stayed at the resort, putting up with a cranky manager and hoping, praying to be able to get the promotion into his former job when he retires in weeks now. It’s no guarantee, and the odds are against her, but it’s still the driving force for her right now. All that will change with one drunk, unruly, rather obnoxious customer who is spending his would have been honeymoon alone… and not afraid to demand unrealistic things in his drunken state.
Jace apologized the next morning. But his opinion that Piper was the most beautiful woman around hasn’t changed. She’s also the most cautious and the most interesting as well. With her promotion riding on his actions, Piper is trying hard to stay out of Jace’s orbit. That no getting involved with clients thing is a hard rule at the resort. So when Jace’s interest seems real, but far too soon the friend zone is invoked. Now, Jace and Piper have some decisions to make, for each suspects there could be far more for them if they allowed it.
Honeymoon For One In Christmas Falls is a delightful romance between two people who might seem unlikely on the surface, but at the core they each want the same things in life. Finn already adores Jace. Truth be told, so does Piper but there are issues to get past before they find a happy ever after. Discovering that friends truly do remain friends no matter what is one of the most touching parts of this story. And I’m anxious to see all the ladies together in one spot.
In the mood for some feel good Christmas romance, then I’d recommend this entire series. Told in the first person, Honeymoon for One In Christmas Falls is funny, sad, touching and encouraging with a cast of engaging characters that will make you smile. Enjoy a visit to Christmas Falls, maybe you won’t want to leave either.
