Reggie hasn’t been home in a year since she became engaged and then dumped in the span of a weekend. But her parents are renewing their vows and her sister is pregnant. Her mom called and asked her to spend the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas in Wishing Tree.

Since Reggie owns her own business and can work from anywhere, she agrees. It’s nice to see her family again. She’s not sure why she stayed away so long. There’s plenty to be done helping her mother with her wedding tasks, and Reggie has also taken over a classroom project for her sister.

Dena’s newly pregnant and barely keeping anything down. While she wants a child, she’s saddened to think she couldn’t find a partner. But she didn’t let that stop her. Between running the B&B and teaching, she’s barely hanging on. She’s so happy Reggie came home to help. Dena only feels a little guilty that she also asked her sister’s ex-boyfriend to help with the classroom project...

Maybe Toby and Reggie will get to reminiscing about the way things used to be. If Dena doesn’t have a happily ever after, that doesn’t mean her sister can’t.

THE CHRISTMAS WEDDING GUEST by Susan Mallery perfectly sets up a new series in a small town in Washington. The town loves Christmas, shown through the layout of the town, the Christmas road names, town rules, and the celebrations. Before they know it, both sisters find themselves in the middle of their own love stories. The friendship and family plotlines are woven perfectly together to create a charming, tight-knit community where people care for each other. Plus, Bella the dog, will steal your heart! This new, heartfelt Susan Mallery novel will make readers want to spread kindness, happiness, and lots of Christmas cheer.

Susan Mallery, author of the Fool’s Gold romances, cheerfully invites you to Wishing Tree, where Christmas comes to life…

The Somerville sisters believe in love, but they’ve lost faith it will happen for them. Reggie hasn’t been home since the end of the world’s shortest engagement. When her parents decide to renew their vows, she buffs up her twinkle to help with the Christmas wedding. Unexpectedly, Toby, her first love, is back too, and the spark between them shines as brightly as ever. In the spirit of the season, will they let go of past hurts and greet the New Year together?

Done waiting for the one, Dena is pregnant and on her own—on purpose. But then a gorgeous, sad-eyed songwriter checks in to a room at her inn. Micah, unable to write since he lost his wife, finds inspiration in Dena’s determination to be a mom. One snowflake-speckled kiss and he’s a goner. But Dena is afraid to believe that a rock star could fall for a cookie-cutter small-town girl like her.

As the Christmas wedding draws closer, these two sisters just might unwrap the most treasured gift of all—love.
