Two stories in one book. A Charming Christmas Novella and A Charming Wedding Novel. Both stories happening during the Christmas holiday within the Wright and Steele family. And of course there's a gris-gris involved.
A Charming Christmas
Lucinda and her magical gris-gris strikes again! But will the recipient adhere to Lucinda's wishes?
Lillian Wright has been single more years than she can count, but it never bothered her until her children purchased a membership to an online dating site for her and Lucinda sent her the gris-gris to wear. Then she begins looking forward to spending time with Matthew Steele, her widowed new neighbor. And suddenly her life is too empty and she is no longer content with being single. But is she ready for love?
Matthew Steele has finally slowed down enough from his law practice to retire. Fifteen years after losing his wife he is still alone, living in a retirement community and eager to mend his relationship with his son. The last thing he expects is to meet someone who makes him question whether he deserves a second chance at love?
A Charming Wedding
For the better part of a year, Sage Steele and Patti Wright have argued over the fact that his job has kept him from attending his father and her mother's impending nuptials, causing them to postpone their wedding. After three postponements it is clear to Patti that Sage could be there if he wanted, but he doesn't. When circumstances change with his job assignments and Sage ends up at the Crescent Moon Lodge on a forced vacation, Patti decides to move the wedding to the lodge where Sage will be staying through the New Year. She will see her mother happy one way or another.
Coming to the Crescent Moon Lodge for Sage means he has to face Patti after their bickering, but he also needs to face his father again after a year of avoiding him. During his drive he decides to do it on his own terms and mend their relationship once and for all. However, a twisted ankle while he's taking photos in the Blue Ridge Mountains puts a kink in Sage's plans, and he has to rely on Patti to get him safely to shelter during a heavy snow fall. Working together brings the pair closer, but will sparks fly while in the cabin waiting for help to arrive? Or will a new understanding for the other develop, leading to a charming wedding?
