Review: If You Believe


Sometimes love only comes once in a lifetime. For some lucky people, it is possible to love again.

Melody and Jack had shared an unforgettable love story that abruptly came to an end. Melody, left picking up the pieces, finds herself alone years later, with no hope or desire to date again. With the holiday season approaching, Melody finds it particularly difficult to get Jack out of her thoughts.

Jack isn’t sure if he’s an angel or a ghost, but his mind is set on one thing only, finding a new love for Melody by Christmas Eve at midnight.  Easier said than done, with many obstacles to tackle, Jack underestimates how difficult the task is. With conflicting emotions, Jack takes it upon himself to find a man for a woman he still loves.

With the clock ticking as the holidays approach, this charming story of finding love the second time around will have you laughing and crying, but ultimately, it will have you believing in true love.

Review by Felita Daniels  \  150 Pages

This is a delightful story and a light, easy read. When you truly love someone, you want them to be happy. This story is a beautiful example of this.

I have to say that Jack’s first attempts seemed pretty pathetic. He thinks he can just ‘go to the mall’ and pick someone out? Matchmaking is a true skill. There’s a little reality here of the pitfalls and obstacles of dating. He has a time constraint also.

This was a clean story. Some might get a tear in their eyes at places, but you don’t necessarily need a whole box of tissues. I was concerned with the page length, that this might be one of the new books that leaves you with a big cliff hanger. This was not the case, which I was happy about. There is a sense of resolution and closure.

Certainly there might be another story down the road about some of the characters, Trent and Cassie maybe? A different holiday for Melody and ______________? I don’t want to give anything away.
