Home for Christmas by Kate Davies is a wonderful holiday read. One of the things that makes this story unique is that it is about a widow, Sophia, with an adult daughter. Sophia's husband died almost two years ago. Her daughter is going to spend Christmas with her almost fiance, so Sophia decided to book herself on a cruise. There is just one problem, Ethan, the man who has been Sophia's rock since her husband's death, doesn't want her going on a cruise without him.
While this is a short read, I think it is really heartwarming to see someone find real love twice in their life. Bad things happen, but life can go on and happiness can still exist. I really like that message, and I really like this quick read. I also managed to score it as a free read in November 2011, so that added to my enjoyment.
