I am a huge fan of Tari Faris and this novella was such a sweet, charming holiday story about two best friends. I highly recommend reading the other books in this series but it is not required.

Growing up without a mother, Danielle “Dan” Fair is a young mechanic working at her father’s garage in Heritage. When Danielle gets pulled into becoming the last minute replacement bridesmaid, she puts on her first dress ever. After a quick makeover, she is walking down the aisle with her hair in curls and hoping that maybe Gideon Mathews, her best friend and secret crush of two years, will start seeing her as a woman and not “just one of the guys”. Of course, Gideon can’t take his eyes off his best friend, but despite being a sought-after bachelor, he’s never been good at talking with the opposite sex. With Gideon trying to forge his own career path and Danielle trying to convince her dad that she’s ready to takeover the business, can the two of them admit their feelings and trust that they deserve their own happily ever after?

I love returning to Heritage. It’s always fun “seeing” characters from other books and getting a life update. I always enjoy Tari Faris’ writing and her characters. They are not perfect. They are flawed and have insecurities just like you and me. They have fears about taking a risk for love. They find it hard to trust and like to avoid conflict.

Don’t hesitate to read this cozy Christmas story!
