Porter Family #3.5

A cold night in Texas, a dream of marriage, a happily ever after....

Single mom Amber Richardson spends every holiday season working to give her young son the best Christmas possible and striving to ignore the empty chairs around her table, chairs she wishes her mother and father and extended family occupied.

She'd hoped that this holiday would be fuller and happier than the rest. Her handsome firefighter boyfriend, Will McGrath, has brought immeasurable joy and love into her life. Up until recently, they'd even been talking about a future that included wedding bells. Lately, though, the wedding talk has been nonexistent and Amber can’t help but worry that Will's starting to have second thoughts....

Until a fire station surprise brings very good tidings.

This is a short Christmas story that will melt your heart.  
On a cold December evening, Amber Richardson found herself on the road to the fire department to take Will, her boyfriend, his cell phone that he had forgotten at her house.  What she didn't anticipate was her car having a blowout or that everyone she called for help not to answer.  She had been taking care of herself since the night she left home after high school graduation when she had a huge fight with her parents, but she could handle this.  She sets out in near freezing temps to walk the mile to the fire station.  During her trek she lets her mind wonder through the past, both good and bad.  She also does a lot of soul searching about her relationship with will.  She is a single mother and must take a lot into consideration.  
This is a sweet, endearing story that's full of love.  It's a clean, feel good story.  It is a quick read, but Becky Wade is true to fashion with her writing and brings a story full of southern charm.  
I would recommend this book to anyone.    

Becky Wade 

 During her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.
Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances with Avon Books, then put her career on hold for several years to care for her three kids, then recently returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She felt led to move to the genre of contemporary Christian romance and couldn’t be more thrilled with it.
These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
