Merry Christmas!

I'm hoping to read this one soon.  It looks so good.

First Chapter

Everyone talks about Christmas magic as if it's an actual, literal thing.  As real as silver tinsel draped lovingly from the stiff pine needles of a blue spruce tree.  As real as snow on Christmas morning.  As real as the live toy soldiers who flank the entrance to FAO Schwartz, the famous toy store now situated in Rockefeller Plaza, right at the center of the bustling, beating heart of Manhattan.

From 56% on my Kindle...

"You think I'm like an action figure - plastic and unfeeling?"

Synopsis from Goodreads:

She never dreamed her holiday would include

her hometown, a dog, or a firefighter.

But a mysterious charm bracelet

predicted it all…

Ashley’s supposed to be having the Christmas of her dreams. After four years of working at an upscale jewelry store in Manhattan, she’s finally going to get a little velvet box of her own―from her boyfriend Jeremy, who’s taking her on a romantic trip to Paris. What could go wrong?

Well, everything.

Ashley heads home to Owl Lake instead, falling asleep on the train ride there…and waking up with a beautiful antique charm bracelet on her wrist. Soon, she realizes that each silver charm predicts an event that happens in real life. What does this mean for her and Jeremy…or her and Aidan, her former high school boyfriend, who’s now a local firefighter? Is there still a chance that she could have the perfect Christmas?
