And now that he’ll be stationed near their home town of Edenton, North Carolina, Alex figures it’s time to rekindle their relationship. What could go wrong?
When Alex drops unexpectedly back into Tori’s life and into her bakery, her feelings rise up like a loaf of gingerbread. True, she’s now almost engaged to the best catch in the county. True, she has a successful business and a plan for her life. And true, she’s never stopped thinking about her first love, Alex. Everything in her life has changed, except her fear of loving a Navy SEAL on active duty. Yet while her practical mind tells her one thing, her fast-beating heart says something else. What if she makes a decision she’ll regret forever?

Rekindled, A Christmas Novella by Marliss Melton and Trish Dawson is a great Contemporary Romance set in Edenton, North Carolina. Second chances, small town romance, Military romance, and rekindling romance makes for some great reading. BTW, I loved the location in Edenton, North Carolina, I lived near there, in the snall town of Creswell, and I do mean small, for years and am familiar with the location. What a plus for me!

While, a quick read, only about 77 pages, Ms. Melton and Ms. Dawson, manages to bring together a very satisfying read, that has cute, sometimes funny one liners, charm, warmth, and will leave the reader with that warm and fuzzy feeling, Christmas stories often bring to life.
I enjoyed seeing Alex and Tori rekindle their love for each other and make their relationship stronger. But, will they be able to make their relationship work this time? Will Tori be able to overcome her fear of being in a relationship with an active Navy SEAL? You’re have to read, “Rekindled, A Christmas Novella” to find out for yourself.
A satisfying and enjoyable Christmas season read. I believe this is the start, “Southern Series”, book 1of a new and what promises to be an exciting series. I hope so, anyway. Can’t wait to read more! I would have enjoyed a longer version, but I enjoyed this story, all the seem. Would I recommend reading “Rekindled”, yes I would! A quick read for when you only have a few moments in your day. Great job, ladies! Hope to see more in the future!
