Return Home: Christmas edition


Return Home: Christmas edition

by Darlene Fredette

 However far we wonder, where ever we may roam, our thoughts will still be turning to those we love at home. Author Unknown

Tropes like ‘Return Home’ are popular in romance stories, however every author must apply their own spin to make the trope their own and create a memorable storyline.

Returning home can be a mixed bag of emotion, with fun, but also conflict and tension.

In One Sweet Christmas, there’s a teaspoon of best friend’s sister and a tablespoon of a reunion. But the main focus is the cup of returning home; it’s a tasty recipe you just might find in Cane’s Chocolate Shop.

Jackson does not return to Redford Falls willingly. He is forced by a mere piece of paper. Upon his first step into the snow, emotion, conflict and tension erupt. Jackson not only has to face the past he left behind, but a family he has rarely spoken to, and the woman who holds his heart. There’s a lot at stake when he begins to wonder why he left, and whether a future is possible in the town he once couldn’t wait to leave.

Who knew returning home would contain a cool nip in the air, irresistible chocolate and a Santa suit?


It’s going to take more than a few pieces of chocolate to fill this Scrooge’s heart with Christmas cheer. Luckily Candice Cane has a whole shop full…
