Finding your soul mate is a dream Adeline Hamilton thought was just that … a dream. After several failed relationships, she realizes she’s not capable of falling in love. The only passion she’s ever had is teaching U.S. History at the local high school.

A week before Christmas, Adeline is all set for her best friend’s wedding, even though she dreads having to go to it alone. But when she’s given a Christmas wish that could change her future forever, she’s whisked away to the past, to a completely different place and time. It’s also when she meets him, William Blair, the man who steals her heart. 

As their relationship grows, Adeline realizes that true love does exist. What she doesn’t know is that her wish can’t last forever, that soon she’ll have to leave the past behind. Will Adeline and William find their way back to each other? Or will their love have to stay where it all began . . . in 1865? With mistletoe and Christmas magic, anything’s possible.

I must admit, this is the first Christmas story that I have read that doesn’t involve elves, Santa Clause or reindeer. This however is not my first rodeo with L.P. Dover’s books. When I seen this title, I knew I had to get my hands on it! As usual Ms Dover has written another amazing story.

Adeline is a high school history teacher. She keeps being reminded by her loved ones that she’s thirty years old and is not married but she honestly has never met “the one.” Her best friend is even trying hard to set her up with her soon to be husbands brother, William, at her upcoming wedding.

William is a real estate tycoon. He has been living in California, running his family’s business out there. His dad can’t keep up back home so William has to do the right thing and pull his weight to help get the business back on its feet for his father. The only thing is he isn’t relationship material and he knows it. His life is his work. He doesn’t make time for anything else.

Adeline is all for meeting prince charming, after all what does she have to lose? William is the best man in her best friend’s wedding and happens to be the man she is supposed to walk with. He doesn’t show up for the rehearsal which Adeline is a little bit relieved.  At the end of the night she is given her bridesmaid present, a necklace with some magical mistletoe that happens to take her back to 1865. Will she awake as the same Adeline?

I really enjoyed this story. I’m a lover of all things historical. This was not only my first Christmas story but it was the first book that I’ve read that starts out in the present and brings the characters way back in time. This was a sweet, innocent read that had a lovely flow to it. I would definitely recommend this book! What a great way to get into the Christmas spirit!!
