Review: A Christmas Miracle for Daisy (Taming of the Sheenans Book 5) by Jane Porter

Book Blurb:

Media Mogul, Cormac Sheenan, had no desire to become a family man, but when his two year old goddaughter, Daisy, is orphaned, he adopts her, moving her from Montana to his home in Southern California, and becomes a devoted single father, juggling parenting duties with running his successful publishing, TV, and radio enterprise. 

But two years later a frightening incident at Daisy’s school, shakes Cormac, and he decides to move Daisy–and his business–back to Montana where life is simpler and he has family nearby. 

Now four, precocious Daisy strikes up an unlikely friendship with Marietta’s seasonal Santa Claus, and believes he’s the real thing, even though Cormac points out to her that this jolly old Kris Kringle is renting a room at Bramble House, not living at the North Pole. Daisy’s not worried but Cormac is as Rent-a-Santa has promised his innocent daughter she’ll have a mommy for Christmas. 

Cormac is livid with Kris. He’s not at all ready to settle down, and he’s definitely not getting back together with his old flame Whitney Alder, so Santa can stop playing match maker as it’d take a miracle to make him fall in love, never mind marriage material. 

But that’s exactly the kind of miracle our angelic Santa Claus has planned… 

My Review:

A Christmas Miracle for Daisy by Jane Porter has a strong Christmas theme but it is a book that will make you feel good and believe at any time of year.  I loved the characters in this story, from the struggling main characters Cormac and Whitney, to the secondary characters of Mr. Krinkle and Daisy, along with a host of other characters who are familiar from previous books in this series (Taming of the Sheenans).  Together they weave a wonderful tale.

Cormac and Whitney have a past that ended badly, and neither have a desire to be involved with each other again.  But there is a sweet little girl to consider, and a pull towards each other that is hard to resist.  Christmas in Marietta might just be the miracle they all need to heal...if they can find it in their hearts to forgive and move on.

I liked how Cormac and Whitney were together...the magnetic pull towards each other was as palpable as the resistance they tried to put up.  The issues they faced were believable and the feelings were real.  I couldn't wait to see how things would work our for them, and if Daisy would get her Christmas Miracle. I liked the involvement of the secondary characters.  They added depth and interest to the plot.

A unique second chance romance with a magical Christmas setting, A Christmas Miracle for Daisy is well written, flows smoothly and captured my heart.  I'd recommend it to any romance reader!

4/5 stars
