Early Review: Holiday Wishes~A Heartbreaker Bay Christmas Novella by Jill Shalvis

Nov 1, 2017

It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!

When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.

The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.

But as the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after, and he wants it with Lotti. But will she open her heart to him again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, he can only hope love and magic are in the air.


Holiday Wishes is a novella set in the Heartbreaker Bay Series and what a great novella it is!

10 Years ago, Sean and Lotti lost their virginity to each other. Lotti moved away soon after, but not before telling Sean she loved him. With letters and phone calls from Lotti left unanswered by Sean, she eventually moved on. But neither of them ever stopped thinking about each other.

Now Lotti is running her family's B&B in the Napa Valley. When Sean shows up at the B&B with his brother, his brother’s fiancé and their friends for a bachelor/bachelorette weekend, he’s shocked when he sees the one woman who got away. He’s had so many regrets about how he handled things back then and now is his chance to make things right between them. Will Lotti be able to forgive him? Will she give him a chance?

Even though it’s a quick read, Jill Shalvis gave us a very enjoyable second-chance romance between Sean and Lotti. A fun, sweet and sexy read!
