This Christmas join the De La Fuentes and McKenzies in Blossom Creek as they celebrate the grand opening of Emelia’s Restaurant. Over twenty years after Levi De La Fuente's parents opened the first Emelia’s, Levi and his cousin Ryan are getting ready to open a second location. Emma De La Fuente manages the first Emelia’s in Essex, Vermont for her parents. She’s in town to assist her brother and cousin in getting the new restaurant ready for its grand opening. However, she didn’t plan on the strong attraction she feels toward the town Sheriff. The man with his sweet words and heated looks has managed to derail her plans on returning home. While his sister is distracted, Levi finds himself in need of rescuing from a rather embarrassing situation. Luckily for him, Vivien Taylor, owner of Temptations, Blossom Creek’s handmade chocolate store, appears just at the right time. If only he didn’t crave the sweet woman, then maybe, this situation wouldn’t be so awkward. Blossom Creek just might be warm enough to melt the snow this holiday season.

They want her to learn all about humans because, in reality, fairies do live among us and need to understand all things human. Peter and Katy are sworn to secrecy and asked not to reveal Emilia’s true nature to her until later. Emilia discovers her powers and abilities somewhat haphazardly as she needs them. Her parents tell her that her abilities must remain a secret. Alas, not everyone has wings. She must be cautious because there are those who hunt fairies for sinister purposes. She is provided with a massive enchanted elk named Hercules for protection. Hercules’s only weakness is Baby Ruth candy bars! He is later joined by a Belgian Malinois named Max as Emilia goes to college and discovers her destiny and a legendary secret. This book has kindness, love, friendship, adversity, faith, danger, perseverance, and excitement woven through it. I hope you enjoy Emilia and her family’s story!
