Sometimes not knowing is better…for everyone.
Spirit of Christmas Present, Kentucky born Coco Baker, has just been given the assignment of her career, but she must partner with a Scottish upper class snob, who thinks he knows what’s best for their living client. Despite him, she’s determined to do well on this case and find out what the arrogant man is hiding.
Ian Fergusson has carefully cultivated a standoffish presence in the afterlife, letting no one get close for fear of them discovering his greatest failing in life. When he’s required to work with the vivacious Coco, both his desire and his fear escalte.
Unfortunately, Coco won’t leave well enough alone and to protect her, Ian finds himself forced to face his past and risk his heart and soul…again.
Good story, emotional at points
This was an interesting read. Two spirit guides are assigned to help the boss' wife move on with her life. Coco and Ian don't click at first but as they move through the assignment, they learn more about each other and then sparks fly. I could not stop turning the pages so read this in one sitting. There were moments of happiness, moments of tears, and a sense that all would be fine. There is a Christmas Past story, which I will read, and there will be a Christmas Future story, which I will anticipate.
I am reviewing this story on my own accord.
Loved this Fun Christmas Story
"Desires of Christmas Present" by Lexi Post is book two in the "Christmas Carol" series. This is Coco Baker and Ian Fergusson's story.
Ian and Coco are both spirit guides and get assigned to work together. Coco is cheerful and gets along with everybody but not Ian. He is a Scottish upper class snob. Ian doesn't let people get close to him because he is afraid they will discover how he was a failure in life.
As Coco and Ian work together they both discover that they have feelings for each other. Will they act on these feelings? Coco is a go getter and Ian worries about her. He faces his past and risks his heart and soul to protect Coco.
Ian and Coco are perfect for each other. I loved watching their relationship change. This was a sweet and heartwarming story with just the right amount of heat.
FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
