This hero needs a holiday miracle or two—and she’s just the one to deliver.

A standalone holiday story from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.

Single father Ryan Zhao didn’t expect a ghost from his past to literally slide back into his life. His longtime friendship with Madison Joy is a pure, sweet memory, and with the holidays fast approaching, her surprise visit is perfect. Maddy’s a breath of fresh air, full of ideas and enthusiasm—and far too attractive to a lonely man like him. Best friends to lovers might be tempting, but it’s also dangerous since she’s leaving after Christmas.

Madison thrives on fixing things. If Ryan insists she stick around and bother him and his adorable daughter for all of December, she’ll do what she can to make his life brighter. Which means reviving their ugly sweater tradition, organizing a not-so-traditional Nutcracker—and fighting to keep from falling in love with her former best friend and his motherless child.

She’s already given up her dreams once to help take care of her family. No matter how much he wants her to stay, Ryan refuses to ask her to do it again for him and his little girl.  Can holiday magic find a way to take these two lonely hearts from friends to forever?


  • Christmas Magic

    By Nicholell
    The magic of the holiday season and Vivian’s writing weave a wonderful story. Ryan’s focus has been his daughter since his wife’s death and just as he is ready to move on his college friend Madison literally slides back into his life. On her way to visit Ryan before her new job starts Madison slides her car into a ditch and Ryan finds her. “Rude or die” friends they have never viewed each other as romantic interests but times have changed and it is the holidays. A wonderfully sweet story to get you into the holiday spirit. As always this book leaves you satisfied and impatiently waiting for the next story. Received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I enjoyed reading this. They really fit well together and I love it when best friends are slow to test the waters but open minded enough to communicate and give building on their great friendship a chance. She explodes on the scene bringing spontaneity and life back into his world. I received an advance review copy for free and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Loved the chemistry and the way they clicked together. The relationship between Madison and Ryan’s daughter is wonderful and sweet. A great romance adventure. Can’t wait to read more.
