It's been eight long years since Michael Gallagher has laid eyes on Shay Angel, back when he was a boy from the most prominent family in town and she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. But he hadn't cared about their differences—until one bad decision landed her in jail.
That was years ago and now he's back in Harmony Harbor for the holidays. So when Shay goes missing, Michael is intent on finding her—and finding out if their sizzling attraction is still there. But he's now a district attorney, and it looks like Shay is once again on the wrong side of the law.
Debbie Mason’s novella Christmas With An Angel is a fabulous follow-up story to Mistletoe Cottage. Both stories are set in Harmony Harbor and in my opinion, the author is spot on with her description of life in a small community north of Boston. Ms. Mason captures the small town feeling and the unique characters of a tight knit community where everyone knows each other’s secrets.
Christmas With An Angel features Michael Gallagher and his former teenage love Shay Angel. Michael Gallagher is having a bad day. His fiancée jilted him the day before their wedding, changed the locks on his condo and threatened him with a law suit. He’s cancelled his credit and debit cards and needs to figure out how to rescue his dog who is in the condo. Overwhelmed and feeling sorry for himself, he decides to go to a bar and get drunk. Michael meets Shay at the bar and the patrons accept him as one of their own when he tells them about being dumped and his concern for his dog.
Debbie Mason’s characters and her dialogue are fabulous. She is able to capture Michael’s self -pity, his need to make amends and redemption is this superbly written fast paced short story. Ms. Mason provided enough insight and mystery into the character of Shay to hold my interest. There were several suspenseful, tense scenes in the novel. The conclusion of Christmas With An Angel has several unexpected surprises and was well done! The author left several clues about Michael and Shay and other characters and I am interested to see who is featured in the next Harmony Harbor book!
