Small town Holly Point wasn’t big enough to hold the dreams of golden girl Maggie Benson. So when she left at eighteen, she flew right through college and into the adrenaline-pumping life of a navy fighter pilot. But without warning, a devastating crash destroys the career she loves and sends her back to her overly protective family to heal. Maggie can’t imagine how she can reconnect with the woman she was until the hot local high school basketball coach steps up to show her the way.

Former NBA star Will Fitzgerald knows how an injury can derail more than a career. Still, he’s happy with his life as a teacher and coach at Holly Point High School, until his quiet life is upended by the beautiful, brilliant, and hurting Maggie. Blindsided by the intense attraction, Will wonders if pursuing the woman of his dreams will answer the question of what’s been missing in his life.
Can Maggie trust enough again to let Will past her wounds, inside and out, so that they can both find the Christmas magic they’ve been searching for? 

I love Christmas books and this one is no different. Maggie Benson is a hero in the eyes of everyone in the small town of Holly Point although Maggie herself doesn't think that especially since she lost her leg when the plane she was on caught fire. After two years of pain and hard work, Maggie has finally come home to Holly Point, hoping to spend time with her family and maybe, just maybe get a small piece of the person she was before back. 
Will Fitzgerald has had his fair share of failure, both personal and professionally. A rising star in NBA which was quickly a distant memory thanks to a injury that meant he couldn't play professionally anymore. His life changed over night and with it went his hope for a happy ending as well with a woman who he thought would love him no matter what. 
When Maggie meets Will, he isn't want she expects but she soon sees that he is different from the other men she has met in her life. He understand what it is like to have something you love taken away and to have to live with the after effects. Although Maggie is not sure she wants to get into something serious but Will is about to show her the meaning of Christmas and what hope feels like when nothing else is going right. 
I loved Maggie, how even though she was hurt and broken in many ways, she was still strong in other ways. I felt so sad reading about her experiences and the pain she went through but I was so happy that she was finally getting back on the right track as she deserved happiness as much as anyone else after what she had been through. 
Finding Christmas is about finding yourself, finding love and finding happiness after you have lost everything you ever wanted. With its strong characters, heartbreaking pasts and hopeful future, it is a story that makes you see the true meaning of Christmas and finding the light at the end of the tunnel along with the hope that goes with it.  
Heartbreaking, Hopeful and Unique. 

Another day, another book,
