[Pat's Review]: "A Christmas Miracle for Daisy"

A Christmas Miracle For Daisy by Jane Porter
Publisher: Tule Publishing Group, The (December 1, 2015)
Series: Taming of the Sheenans, 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Media Mogul, Cormac Sheenan, had no desire to become a family man, but when his two year old goddaughter, Daisy, is orphaned, he adopts her, moving her from Montana to his home in Southern California, and becomes a devoted single father, juggling parenting duties with running his successful publishing, TV, and radio enterprise. 

But two years later a frightening incident at Daisy’s school, shakes Cormac, and he decides to move Daisy–and his business–back to Montana where life is simpler and he has family nearby. 

Now four, precocious Daisy strikes up an unlikely friendship with Marietta’s seasonal Santa Claus, and believes he’s the real thing, even though Cormac points out to her that this jolly old Kris Kringle is renting a room at Bramble House, not living at the North Pole. Daisy’s not worried but Cormac is as Rent-a-Santa has promised his innocent daughter she’ll have a mommy for Christmas. 

Cormac is livid with Kris. He’s not at all ready to settle down, and he’s definitely not getting back together with his old flame Whitney Alder, so Santa can stop playing match maker as it’d take a miracle to make him fall in love, never mind marriage material. 

But that’s exactly the kind of miracle our angelic Santa Claus has planned…

Pat's Review:

This is a story about two complicate people, who have one thing in common....their love of four year old Daisy.

Cormac Sheenan is a corporate wizard living in L.A with his daughter Daisy. She is enrolled in the "right" school. Quiet, small and out of the city. That  is until Cormac gets the message that the school has a shooter and is in lockdown. In traffic he is too far away, and his heart is about to pound out of his chest.  When he reaches the school and has Daisy safely in his arms, he vows to change his life and hers. They will be moving back to Marietta,, love and peace are what he is looking for. Going back to Montana, moving his corporate offices, opens doors he thought he had closed, and makes him wonder why he did.

Whitney Alder is in charge of a design team for Sheehan Media. She works in Denver, and despite the excellent incentive to move to Montana, she gives her two weeks notice. She has a history with Cormac; she fell in love, sure he was in love with her, and then coldly and business like set her aside.  But more importantly, he took something that was most precious to her, Daisy. Whitney was Daisy's god mother, when her best friend April and her husband passed away, she expected to get custody.......but Cormac had been named her guardian. Despite intensive legal action, he won the case. She has not seen or heard about Daisy in two years.

"She couldn't forgive him, and she couldn't forget, and she couldn't do this anymore."

But Cormac has realized how much Daisy needs her God-Momma, and gives Whitney something she can't refuse. If she goes to Montana through the holidays, oversees the new construction and opening, she will be able to see and spend time with Daisy.

Cormac seems cold, hard and cruel. After the incident at the school he realizes Daisy needs more and so does he. Having Whitney near, proves to him what a fool he had been. His fear of commitment tore something very precious apart. Christmas in Marietta sounds like a small town beautiful dream. Snow, Santa and friends make Daisy's life thrilling.......especially having Whitney close by. Forgiveness and love make this an unforgettable holiday story. I highly recommend it.
