5 Stars for His Candy Christmas, A Redford Falls Novel by Darlene Fredette


  One tiny moment of youthful folly, has grown into a looming mountain of complication.
   Now Candy Cane, owner of the revered local chocolate shop, must put matters to right if she hopes for a future with her friend, Andrew. But seeing Jackson Frost, the boy she grew up with, and the man to whom she’d long ago given her heart, makes these good intentions difficult to say the least.
    Jackson, a jet-setting, high-rolling, real estate mogul hasn’t bothered to return to quant little Redford Falls for many a year. Family issues, and being a workaholic, have kept him away. At least that’s what he tells himself. When the discovery of a document forces Jackson to admit a broken heart might be the true reason, a trip home is needed to remedy his situation.
    The Christmas rush has Candy up to her ears baking cookies and sweets as she worries over impending financial problems, and pulling off a happy Christmas for the local children. I had to chuckle when Jackson was blackmailed into playing the reluctant Santa hero. Needless to say, Jackson’s quick trip turns into a few precious days of rediscovery, and a bit of soul searching for all involved. The hectic pace of the holidays gave a reason for the misunderstandings not being resolved more quickly, and provided depth to the characters and story.
     Again, Darlene Fredette’s skilled voice moves the reader along at a good pace keeping one’s interest through to the end of this warmhearted Christmas story. From the pepperminty cover, to the satisfying ending, I enjoyed this book. I’m glad to see one of the important characters will have their own story in the next adventure in Redford Falls.
