The Corner of Holly and Ivy by Debbie Mason – publication date of October 30th, 2018 by Forever Romance – (Contemporary Holiday Romance)
Sometimes love is just around the corner . . .
With her dreams of being a wedding dress designer suddenly over, Arianna Bell isn’t expecting a holly jolly Christmas. Instead, her heart feels about three sizes too small. That is until her high school sweetheart Connor Gallagher returns to town and she finds his mere presence still makes her pulse race. But just when she starts dreaming of kissing under the mistletoe, he announces that he will be her opponent in the upcoming mayoral race.
Hot-shot attorney Connor Gallagher has something to prove. He’s tired of playing runner-up to his high-achieving brothers. So when the opportunity to enter the campaign comes up, he takes it. Even if it means running against the only woman he’s ever loved. But with a little help from Harmony Harbor’s local matchmakers and a lot of holiday cheer, Connor and Arianna may just get the happy ever after they both deserve.

My Review: The Corner of Holly and Ivy is a feel-good Christmas romance that is the seventh book in the Harmony Harbor series by Debbie Mason and is a contemporary holiday romance. A series that features a different main couple with each book that can be read as a standalone if you choose. Once you read through you will want to read the other books in the series. A story of romance and second chance at love as Conner and Arianna’s relationship started in high school and only grew more intense over the years. When a horrific event takes place the feelings that have remained hidden for so many years comes to light. When the feelings start to resurface the fear that Connor cannot live without Arianna is clear. Mason has a wonderful way of writing that takes romance to a whole new level with romance, action, and second changes all set in the Christmas season of miracles. The Corner of Holly and Ivy is a lovely romantic Christmas read that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
