Synopses & Reviews
On Christmas Eve, if you sleep with kismet cookies under your pillow and dream of your one true love, he will be your destiny.
The townsfolk of Twilight, Texas, believe the legend, but not Sarah Collier--not since she was a pudgy teenager, running down the church aisle on Christmas Day in a jingle bell sweater and reindeer antlers, trying to stop Travis Walker from marrying someone else. She may be grown-up, slimmed-down, bestselling children's book author Sadie Coolnow, but Sarah will never forget that day. And she'll never fall foolishly in love again
But when a letter from a sick fan brings Sarah back to Twilight, she's shocked to discover that Travis is the little girl's father--unattached and hotter than ever. His smile still makes her melt, but Sarah knows that ship has sailed. Travis, however, might have different ideas.
The top rules of the First Love Cookie Club: No men. No kids. No store-bought. No gossip!
And no one is going to keep rule #4 now that local-gal-made-good Sarah Collier has reluctantly returned to Twilight, Texas. The once-awkward teenager has become a big-time success with her bestselling kids books. Now shes come back home to grant one child a very special wish, even though her own heart was once broken by the little girls father, Travis Walker.
This all makes Sarah wonder, even though you can go home again—should you? Every time she turns the corner, the memory of who she was hits her square in the face, and it isnt pretty. But theres magic in Twilight, Texas—the magic of friendship and the magic of love, if only Sarah would open her heart to it. . . .
