'Tis the season of forgiveness…but can she ever forget?

Brad Monroe was truly unbelievable. Blowing back into Brookhollow for three days to film a Christmas special—three years after the accident that killed his best friend…her husband—and expecting Melody to be civil? Please. He'd been the only one who'd survived the tragedy, hightailing it to Nashville and hijacking her dream…Patrick's dream. She'd spent that time grieving, working three jobs, struggling to raise her boys and keep a roof over their heads. Now she was losing ground on all fronts, and not about to forgive and forget. Or give him the one thing that could save them all….

The Mistletoe Melody (A Brookhollow Story, #4)My Review
The Mistletoe Melody by Jennifer Snow

In one of the most romantic and sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet holiday romances I have ever read, Jennifer Snow gets to the heart of love, loss, forgiveness and second chances with Mistletoe Melody. Melody and Patrick had everything, love, happiness, and two perfect sons. After years of hard work, Patrick’s dream of becoming a country music star was finally becoming a reality, alongside his best friend, Brad. But a horrible accident ended Melody and Patrick’s dream after a night of celebration with Brad. Two men shared the same dream, but only one would live to realize it, leaving Melody broken, alone and struggling to provide for her sons.

Now a rising star, Brad is back and Melody’s life just got worse, as the bitterness rises to even higher heartbreaking levels. Mr. Nashville is making a Christmas Special in his hometown, the one he ran from after Brad’s death. Has the glamor of fame, a new name and the media hype gone to his head? Does he really think Melody should just forget what she feels he took from her?

If that isn’t brutal enough, Brad needs a hit, that one in a million song that will make him a household name and he know Melody has it, that one special song she wrote long ago. Seriously? He thinks she should part with the last piece of her husband, THEIR special song?
Only honesty, and revisiting the past may heal their broken friendship and only forgiveness can help Melody move on and learn to live again. The real Brad lives buried under the fa├žade of his public face, is that man the key to Melody’s future? Can he help her release the pain of the past and share the love in her music with the world?

Not even going to say this was touching, because that wouldn’t do my feelings justice. Jennifer Snow has brought romance to life at one of the most emotional times of the year, where goodwill towards others and dreams of a brighter future really can come true. There is nothing sappy here, just in-your-face Holiday reading that will make you wish this season could last the entire year.
