Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Rachel's Random Resources for PART THREE of the Coming Home to Merriment Bay series from author Emily Harvale.  This time around it's the aptly named Christmas chapter that we're reading and let's just say that the holidays are not so jolly for this group with so many lies floating around, feelings left unshared, and yet more missteps in the love department.  Ready or not, we're heading back to the bay in

Coming Home to Merriment Bay
PART THREE:  Christmas
Emily Harvale

About the book...
Part Three of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.

Cat and Kyra have finally traced the man in the photo they found in Viola’s trunk – thanks to Amias. But Bailey Mitchell lives thousands of miles away and is almost ninety-eight, so meeting him in person is never going to happen. Which is just as well. Exchanging Christmas cards and chatting on social media leads to revelations Cat had not expected.

At least Christmas is looking promising. It may be freezing outside but things have definitely thawed between Cat and her mum, Mary. They’re actually getting on, especially now that Mary is dating Jeremy Stone, the builder working on Viola’s house.

Cat’s also hopeful that Viola’s situation may improve. And when a surprise visitor brings more than just well wishes, Cat’s Christmas takes a delightful turn.

With the festivities in full swing, and snow falling on Merriment Bay, the future’s looking bright. Christmas is a time for miracles and Cat believes she may get one of her own this year if she’s prepared to put the past behind her and open her heart to Love once more.

I simply love how the author puts herself in the reader's shoes and reads our minds as to exactly what we're contemplating when we've reached the story's end.  I mean the questions she poses are RIGHT ON POINT!  I'm simply dying to know whether Cat and Amias will end up together or simply remain two ships passing ever so close in the night...but I'm also curious about the Ben situation as it plays quite heavily into everything else.  I love the progress made between mother and daughter...well, in both sets of mothers and daughters actually.  You can see it brings more peace to their hearts and contentment to their time shared.  I'm very interested to know if Viola will ever have her say in everything that's transpiring and what she'd think about this Jeremy fellow that has apparently hitched his wagon to Mary.

So, as part three's go, I'd say it's a winner...but really, give me part four already because, yeah, I need to know how this is all going to turn out!
