A charming shopkeeper. A powerful businessman. A proposition that could make or break them both. When the cards are on the table, only one of them will walk away victorious. Discover who holds the winning hand in Debbie Mason’s latest heartwarming Harmony Harbor romance.



Meet Evangeline Christmas, owner of Harmony Harbor’s year-round holiday shop. Typically this time of year she’s wrapping gifts and decorating anything that stands still. But this December, she’s too busy fretting over the future of her business to get in the spirit of the season.

Caine Elliot, on the other hand, is a real estate developer who makes Scrooge look positively generous. Despite Evie and her friends’ best attempts, it looks like he’s going to get his way, until she makes Caine a deal he can’t resist. After all, how difficult can it be to make three wishes come true?

Confident and determined to win her property before the holiday, he goes about spreading joy, but must face off with some personal demons in the process. And just as he starts to believe he and Evie could build a future together, an old secret rears its head and threatens to decimate both their dreams forever.

If you are looking for a novel which inspires you to become a better version of yourself, look no further than Christmas in Harmony Harbor. Here you will find characters who are quite true to life and may even remind you of individuals closest to you. Some may even frustrate you as they seek to please other people rather than stand up for their own thoughts, beliefs and feelings.

Real estate developer, Caine Elliot is one example, for he is a man who twists himself up into a pretzel to please his grandmother. Reality check folks. Sometimes you will disappoint those who you love. It is inevitable. However, after emotions die down, how you navigate the nuances of your relationship with this person is what matters. Adulting is not for those who wish things were different but for those who are courageous enough to redefine the parameters of what they are willing to accept.

Charming and heartwarming, Christmas in Harmony Harbor is the best kind of seasonal story. It is one filled with authentic characters, real emotion, and just enough magic to buoy the story along to its upbeat finale.

Note: The edition also includes the bonus story One Night in Christmas by Debbie Mason.
