Five Golden Wishes by Cari Lynn Webb

Dylan King never intended to get involved with Christmas Town. He'd arranged his business trip to include a short visit with his Aunt Odette. But now he's fixing furniture for Over the River Retirement Home residents, welding a fence for the carousel and extending his stay every other day. If he stopped making up excuses to spend more time with Sadie Kent, he could finally get back to business like he wanted.

Sadie Kent has fallen to a new low. Not only has she ditched Santa School (a birthday gift from her young daughters to regain her Christmas spirit after her holiday divorce last year), Sadie has seriously embellished her culinary skills. Between keeping her volunteer commitments and trying to find a job that won’t interfere with her daughters’ school schedules, baking and decorating Christmas cookies to help raise money for the carousel refurbishment might be one step too far. If Dylan King stopped offering suggestions and distracting her, and reigniting her holiday spirit, Sadie could prove she had everything under control.

Welcome back to Christmas Town where wishes in the heart, no matter how deep they're buried, find a voice. And the power of family and love endures.

'Tis the season for another holiday romance!  I've sure been reading a lot of them lately.  I really love the cover on this book and I think it does a good job of capturing Dylan's personality and handyman abilities.

This book has a whole cast of all kinds of characters.  There are meddling aunts who are over the top, pushy and sneaky.  There are two little girls who are very involved in the story line.  And last but not least, there are the two main characters, Dylan and Sadie, each struggling with difficult things and trying to balance the people around them.  Which is quite a feat, I assure you.

I had a harder time connecting with this book and it's characters.  The last third of the book was definitely the best and brought out all those holiday feelings I look for in a holiday romance such as this.  The feeling of family was what I loved the most there at the end.  3/5 stars.
