Review of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas

Rating - 3 1/2

Mark Nolan is grief-stricken learns that his sister was killed in an automobile accident, but he is astonished when he learns that he has been named guardian of his young niece, Holly. Mark is single and has no idea how to raise a child. To make matters worse, Holly has been unable or unwilling to speak since the death of her mother. Mark talks his brother, Sam, into allowing him and Holly to move into the ramshackle farmhouse the brothers have been renovating. Mark and Sam both are at wits end about how to help Holly until a young widow, Maggie, comes into their lives and effects a Christmas miracle.

Kleypas is one of my favorite contemporary romance novelists (she also is an award-winning historical romance writer), This is the first in a series about the Nolan brothers. It's almost a novella with the holiday theme and touch of magic to it. It's highly entertaining and a quick read. I'm looking forward to the rest of the books in the series.
