A Convenient Christmas Proposal

The Shannon Sisters, Book 2
Tule Publishing (November 17, 2020)
Holiday Fiction/Holiday Romance
She’s the Christmas light in a world that seems so dark…
When Patrol Officer Kelly Shannon answers a suspected DUI call that results in the suspect’s death, she has to deliver the grim news to his young family, including his brother—her friend and crush, Mick. Kelly convinces herself that she’s only making amends when Mick begs for help looking out for his niece and nephew as his sister-in-law grieves and neglects her young children. But as Christmas approaches, Kelly admits the truth. She’s falling in love.
Journalist Mick Mizzoni spent his life trying to keep his younger brother out of trouble. When he gains temporary guardianship over his niece and nephew, he crosses the professional line he drew years ago and turns to Kelly Shannon for help. As she embraces him and his new family, she gives him hope that this Christmas could be different.
With their happiness hanging by a thread, Kelly hopes for a Christmas miracle, but Mick, who’s not as jaded as he thought, wants so much more.
Smooth read that I just sat and read and read. I was invested in the characters and all the emotions. Wonderful main characters as well as secondary characters. The children, oh my heart broke for them, but they had guardian angels in the form of Uncle Mick and Officer Kelly. Written with beautiful details that I felt I was in the story. A bit tragic tale balanced nicely with the magic wonder and beauty that the Christmas season brings. Highly recommend. A Christmas romance by CJ Carmichael is always a sure thing!
