Two years ago, when Ivy Emerson bailed from the tiny fishing village she’d grown up in to go to Columbia, Sawyer McCallister was the only thing she was sad to leave behind, and she still didn’t look back. But when her mother guilts her into coming home for Christmas, she crashes headfirst into Sawyer, who’s also returned after being away.
Now that they’ve both been dragged back to Saltwater, Maine, they might just realize it’s where they belong. Together.
This was a sweet novella! I fell very quickly for Ivy and her family, and for the relationship between Ivy and Sawyer.
I’d actually love to read this story in full-length novel form, because then I’d get to spend even more time with the characters and get even more details and back story. However, what we’re given here is pretty great. I loved the history between Ivy and Sawyer, and how it couldn’t help but be repeated. I also enjoyed the open happy ending. There’s the promise of something good, and a reassurance that the characters will have their happily ever after, even if you don’t know the specific details of how.
A very fun Christmas novella, well worth checking out.
Would have liked it more Christmas-y, but it's not too bad.
