Review
  • Carlson (Harbor Secrets) explores the quiet town of Seaside, Maine, in this heartfelt Christmas story. Wendy Harper and her son, Jackson, drive along the coastal shores of Maine toward the Seaside beach house her grandfather left her. While she has every intention of fixing up the cottage and preparing it for sale, Jackson is under the impression that this is a permanent move for the family. No matter how many times she tries, Wendy is unable to tell Jackson that they won’t be staying. With the constant pull between hope and doubt, Wendy is no longer sure if selling the beach house is the answer to her problems. Through year-round residents such as handsome Caleb Colton, Wendy is able to see the possibilities that will open up if she were to stay in Seaside. Jackson encourages his mom to trust God for what they need, and believes Seaside is the right place for them. Though she tries to make life in Seaside work, she ultimately decides to make the responsible decision. With a sweet ending that neatly wraps up this Christmas novel, Carlson explores second chances through the touch-ups of a small beach house, a budding romance, and a renewal of faith in God. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed 07/23/2018) (Publishers Weekly, vol 265, issue 30, p)
