Jamie Bailey has not had such a wonderful life. He gave up his dreams of Harvard at 18 to raise his sister’s unwanted baby, and later a prized job to help a sick friend. Now the father of six-year-old Mia, and assistant manager at Raven Books, Jamie’s dreams are dashed once again when Uncle Billy admits what dire straights the bookshop is in.
Stanton Potter, son of the most notorious businesswoman in Bedford Falls, loves his job teaching at the local elementary school. But he’s less than thrilled when he is forced to put together a Christmas pageant with first-graders, including Mia Bailey.
When Stanton meets Jamie, angels sing. Jamie’s gender-bending fashion sense, and sweet aura, have Stanton suffering through the worse crush he’s had since he was a teen. But can there be any hope for them when Jamie and Mia’s lives are about to be uprooted?
This Christmas, its Jamie’s turn to receive a little help from heaven.
Eli Easton always writes consistently good holiday stories, and I absolutely loved Family Camp, the first book in the Daddy Dearest series, so when I found out the second book in the series would also double for a holiday read this year I was excited.
Angels Sing is a fun, sweet, and heartwarming holiday read I read in a single sitting. It’s not long, it’s heavy on the holiday sentimentality, there’s definitely a couple of long winks towards It’s a Wonderful Life, but it was the happy ending that had me grinning.
I loved how femme Jamie is, how Stanton was absolutely captivated by Jamie from the first moment they meet, and that ending! sighs I loved the ending. But…I would be lying if I didn’t wish for more relationship development and on page dating, and sure, there were a few moments toward the end I side-eyed a bit, but can’t talk about without spoiling anything (I’m looking at you, Amelia), but overall, Angels Sing is an sweet, enjoyable, holiday-themed, (mostly) dual POV, romance with some humor, a bit of magic, a little heat, and that oh-so-sweet happy ending.
