Review: Marry Me (Chapel Cove #6) by Autumn Macarthur

About the Book
For her daughter, she'll do anything. Even marry a man she hardly knows.

Widowed Melanie Montana has spent far too many holidays sitting beside hospital beds with people she loves. But not this year. Knowing it could be their last, she's vowed to make it the best ever Christmas for her four-year-old daughter, Alia.

With the support of the Chapel Cove townsfolk, she'll find ways to make all Alia's dreams come true. Lots of books and reading a story together every single night - tick. A sleigh ride in the snow - tick. A steam train ride- tick. Even her own pony - tick. That's the easy part.

The biggest item on Alia's list is more of a challenge - a daddy for Christmas. And not just any daddy. Alia knows exactly who she wants her mommy to marry. The man she calls Dr. Santa, better known as pediatrician Dr. Mark Stewart. When they’ve both been hurt before and closed their hearts to love, only a Christmas miracle can give Melanie and Mark a happy-ever-after.

But when God, as well as the determined child, seems to be pushing them together, how can they possibly resist?

A heartwarming and uplifting story of faith, love, and pancakes.

My Thoughts

What a sweet story! It's not often you find marriage of convenience romances in a contemporary setting, but this one was super cute.

Things did get emotional, at times. Some difficult topics were covered and there were definitely tears. But it was also full of hope and a great spiritual message about trusting God and His timing. And held a wonderful reminder of His love.

Mel, Mark, and Alia were great characters and easy to root for. I became so invested in their lives. I love the town of Chapel Cove. It's such a warm and inviting place.

Marry Me was another lovely romance from Autumn Macarthur. And even though it's book six in the series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. If you're a fan of hallmark movies, this book is sure to delight.
