The Christmas Key by Lori Wilde

There's a legend in Twilight, Texas. If you sleep with a kismet cookie under your pillow on Christmas Eve, you will dream of your one true love.

She saw him in her dreams...

It's impossible! Naomi Luther was standing face-to-face with the man she'd dreamed about over a year ago. Was it the magic of kismet Christmas cookies that brought him to her? Or is there an even greater force at work? All Naomi knows is she is falling, hard and fast, for the one man all good sense says she should not have.

She was his buddy's sister...

Rebellious Mark Shepherd found order in the Marines but chaos on the battlefield. In a mission gone wrong, Mark is injured and one of his fellow soldiers loses his life. Haunted by guilt, he arrives in Twilight to keep a solemn promise. But when the Luthers mistake him for their handyman, he’s swept up in playing Santa to his buddy’s orphan son... and falling hard for Naomi’s irresistible bright spirit and sweet, sexy smile. But what will happen when she learns the truth?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the ninth book in the series, and whilst one needs to have an open mind to the special brand of magic that the Twilight inhabitants believe in, it could be read as a standalone and be thoroughly enjoyed. Understanding Nate, and the rest of the gang’s pasts will, however, reassure you that Mark is in the very best place for his future happiness.

There is a lot to like in this book, and it definitely has a Christmas goodness vibe running through it – very sweet, and yet dealing with some very difficult issues really well. I thought Mark's reasons for being a rule keeper were revealed in a clever and thoughtful way, and made the reader really understand just how important having structure was for him. So, as we see him learn to trust himself and sometimes employ tact and caution rather than honesty, it is endearing.

The twist was somewhat unexpected, and really cool – although risky – and the outcome was everything that any romantic reader would wish. Although Naomi's father is a pastor, none of the family are preachy, so don't be put off by that fact.

From sadness and loss comes a new beginning for the Shepherd-Luther family – enjoy!
