The magic of Christmas
Could make her wish come true!
A small-town Christmas wedding. What could be more romantic? Unless you’re a plus-one for hire like single mom Maia MacKenzie. Too bad handsome cowboy Brent Hayes is her new coworker—and completely off-limits! Neither of them can afford to lose their job…or invest in a relationship. But when she sees Brent’s adorable connection with her young son, Maia can’t help wishing for a Christmas miracle.
A Secret Christmas Wish Book Excerpt
Staring at an attractive cowboy across the way while on a date with someone else probably wasn’t considered good manners. Maia MacKenzie imagined her mother rolling her eyes and announcing she’d raised her youngest daughter better than that.
But, Maia rationalized, this wasn’t a real date. Yes, technically she’d arrived with the man sitting to her left. And, like all the guests at Wishing Well Springs wedding barn, she waited for the familiar strains of “Here Comes the Bride.” But at the end of the reception, they’d part ways and never hear from one another again.
Her date—Kenny Haselhoff, she reminded herself—seemed nice, if a bit nervous. She sent him her best you’ve-got-this smile. He fidgeted in response, his knee bobbing up and down.
According to the bio she’d been provided, Kenny worked as a project manager for a large flooring company, liked to golf and jog, was a newly divorced father of two and had season tickets to the Arizona Cardinals games. In the story outline he’d created, they’d been seeing each other for the past two months and weren’t yet serious.
In truth, Maia had just met Kenny for the first time thirty minutes ago. In the rear parking lot of Payson Feed and Hay, of all places. He’d chosen the discreet location, insisting they not be glimpsed by anyone attending his cousin’s nuptials. As Maia had learned this past year working for Your Perfect Plus One, people were funny when it came to weddings. They had no problems going solo to any other activity. Nightclubs. Parties. Sporting events. Movies. But somehow, arriving alone at a wedding screamed loser with a capital L.
Which explained why her older sister’s wedding-and-event-date company had doubled in size since opening and why Maia was busy most weekends. Weddings were big business in this tourist town. More than ever since Wishing Well Springs had opened its doors. Getting hitched or hosting a family reunion in a glamorously rustic barn with an adorable Western-themed miniature town next door appealed to a lot of people. Particularly over the holidays.
Personally, Maia wouldn’t want to get married on Thanksgiving eve, but to each their own. The turkey with all the fixings dinner reception at Joshua Tree Inn next door did promise to be delicious. She had that to look forward to at least.
Her gaze traveled again to the attractive cowboy in the pew across the aisle. He looked vaguely familiar, though not in an I-know-you way. More like an I’ve-seen-you-somewhere way. Hmm. Maybe his name would come to her before the end of the wedding.
