The Christmas Fountain

#9, Wishful Romance

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Elementary school teacher Mary Alice Reed wanted a nice, stable guy to share her happily ever after. When she thought she'd found him, everyone tried to tell her that the guy she thought was her Mr. Right, was really Mr. Somebody Else's. Living with a town's worth of I-told-you-so isn't easy, but she's coping. And definitely taking a break from love in order to get past her last disaster to chair her favorite Christmas charity.

Trauma surgeon Chad Phillips gave up the intensity and long hours of a big city hospital to move to Wishful. He wants a home and family, a town with a slower pace, where he can actually build a life. Being one of Wishful’s most eligible bachelors has gotten him a lot of pie and casseroles, but it hasn’t helped him find that special someone to come home to. 

When a friend’s accident lands Mary Alice in his ER, Chad finds himself more than intrigued. Part Martha Stewart, part Mary Poppins, and all Girl Next Door, she’s exactly what he’s been looking for. Volunteering for the Fountain of Hope charity seems like the perfect way to get to know his Christmas crush.  But just as he seems to be overcoming Mary Alice's once bitten, twice shy caution, that one tiny thing from his past, that he probably should have told her about, shows up for a Christmas season visit. Chad's gonna have some explaining to do.

Q: Who would dig these books?

Wishful is a southern romance series written for anyone looking for love in a small town.  If you loved Hart of Dixie and miss the residents of Bluebell, you just might fall in love with Wishful. It's a town where everybody knows your name and hope springs eternal!  Many of my readers also enjoy the books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kristan Higgins, Melanie Shawn, Ava Miles, and Jill Shalvis.

Q: What order should I read the books in?

This southern romance series has been written so that each story is a standalone that wraps up with a happily ever after by The End.  That said, if you want to read them in chronological order I suggest this:

* To Get Me To You

* Be Careful, It's My Heart

* Know Me Well

* Just For This Moment

* Wish I Might

* Turn My World Around

* Dance Me A Dream

* See You Again

* The Christmas Fountain

Q: Are there crossovers with other series?

YES!  My Meet Cute Romance series of novelettes includes two Wishful stories.

* Once Upon A Coffee

* Once Upon A Setup

My WISHING FOR A HERO series takes a look at the more suspenseful side of Wishful.

*  If I Didn't Care

Customer Reviews

Sweet and sensual

Kait Nolan does it again!! Love the people and situations. Characters are so relatable and likable ! I have read each one of her books and this one keeps up to its name.


Perfect holiday romance

This is now one of my favorite stories by Kait Nolan, although I’d have a very hard time picking out my most favorite, as I love all her books. But this ranks just because it’s such a sweet dream come true for Mary Alice, she almost loses her chance because she doesn’t trust that her dreams can come true, and I find that very relatable.

Christmas in Wishful

The Christmas Fountain by Kait Nolan was a beautifully written romance story of Mary Alice and Chad around Christmas in the wishful series. Mary Alice is a school teacher who is heartbroken meets Chad an ER doctor while bringing her inebriated cousin who fell to the ER. Immediate attraction between Mary Alice and Cad and I loved how Chad became involved with her charity to be near and date Mary Alice. I really enjoyed reading The Christmas Fountain by Kait Nolan and all of her books. I highly recommend reading it and you will enjoy it. I received an ARC of this book and have voluntarily choose to review it.
