Lakeshore Christmas

Lakeshore Christmas
by Susan Wiggs
Lakeshore Christmas (Lakeshore Chronicles, #6)

Genre: Romance

Synopsis:  The prim librarian is finally getting her chance to direct Avalon’s annual holiday pageant, and she’s determined to make it truly spectacular. But it might just require one of those Christmas miracles she’s always read about.

The problem is her codirector is recovering former child star Eddie Haven, a long-haired, tattooed lump of coal in Maureen’s pageant stocking. Eddie can’t stand Christmas, but a court order from a judge has landed him right in the middle of the merrymaking.

Maureen and Eddie spar over every detail of the pageant, from casting troubled kids to Eddie’s original—and distinctly untraditional—music. Is he trying to sabotage the performance to spite her? Or is she trying too hard to fit the show into her storybook-perfect notion of Christmas?

And how is it possible that they’re falling in love?
from the book jacket

Review:  I've been in the mood for quick and light reads lately, so I've picked up some of Susan Wiggs' Lakeshore Chronicles series.  I've enjoyed most of them, but this one fell flat.  The romance between Maureen and Eddie didn't feel real; I couldn't see these two characters connecting.  I was more interested in Daisy Bellamy's story, but that was disappointing as well, since it basically just stopped partway through the book. 

Rating: 2.5 stars
