      Christmas at Seashell Cottage is a sweet, heartwarming holiday romance. Donna Alward does a wonderful job of getting two lonely and somewhat lost people together just in time for Christmas. A must read for anyone who enjoys a good holiday romance. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

      3.5* Charlie is fairly new to Jewell Cove, a small town where everyone knows everyone else's business. She's been trying to fit in and volunteers to help with holiday decorations. Charlie has noticed Dave before (she watches him work while on her lunch break). Dave is also new to the town. They get introduced. Their night is interrupted when they find an abandoned baby in the nativity scene. What followed was a nice, sweet holiday romance. I liked both characters. I did get to know Charlie, but [...]

      Previously reviewed on The Good, The Bad and The Unread:I don’t tend to read Christmas stories before December, so I was a little concerned when this repeat, and seasonal, visit to Jewell Cove appeared in October – especially since it was billed as number 1.5 in the series and the second full-length novel was due out soon after (and I’ve since read and reviewed that one). All was not lost, however – this in-between story probably fits better into the sequence if read after the other two [...]

      Charlie Yang is the local doctor who is fairly new to town. She moved here to be part of a community, something she never felt growing up. She is an only child of very productive parents who always put their research studies or work ahead of others and hardly had time for a child. She was a lonely child and thinks about having a family in the future.Dave Ricker works at the boat docks and is also new to town. He moved to the area to be near his three year old daughter Nora. His life is up in the [...]

      A wonderfully written book that drew me in from the first page and didn't let go until the last word. The author did a great job of showing the different characters and their feeling, and also their confusion of a relation.Love the cover!

    • Charlie says:

      Charlie Yang is relatively new to town. She defied her parents and accepted a small town doctor position. Growing up an only child and brushed off by her parents, she wants more from life than the living to climb the career ladder. With hopes of joining in the community and being accepted in an insular small town where everyone knows everyone, Charlie is struggling to be seen as anything but the town doctor. Dave Ricker also recently moved to town after putting his Navy SEALs life to rest. Stuc [...]

    • Janet Friesner says:

      just a 140 page novella which went back and told the story of how one of the married couples high- lighted in the authors last full novel met. It was light and easy reading. Had a hard time staying with it.

    • Sophia says:

      Tis the season for the cozy Christmas reads. I took this chance to try a new to me author in a book featuring a small town holiday romance. This story is part of the Jewell Cove series which I haven't read, but I had no trouble picking it up as a standalone.The story opens with Charlie Yang, one of the newest members of the Jewell Cove community taking the plunge to do something outside her comfort zone. She has never been a joiner or one to do something spontaneous, but this is her new start aw [...]

    • Christine says:

      Sweet, heartfelt, but also painfully slow at times Christmas story about two lovely people brought together by a baby abandoned in the town manger.

    • Cynthia says:

      If you are looking for a delightful, heart-warming Christmas read look no further you have found it. This is a wonderful written book that will draw you in from the start with a wonderful plot that makes this an outstanding read. The author puts a lot of emotion in this story that you can feel coming right through the pages. You can feel their pain, disappointment, happiness and love, you will laugh, you will want to cry and you become a part of the book.Doctor Charlie Yang has been looking for [...]

      One of my favorite books that I read in 2015 was The House on Blackberry Hill by Donna Alward, the first book in the Jewell Cove series. That book was just amazing, and naturally, I want to read more from this series. Luckily, my amazing Secret Sister sent me Christmas at Seashell Cottage, book 1.5 in the series, and it was absolutely adorable.Christmas at Seashell Cottage is a novella about fairly new-to-town Doctor Charlie Yang and former Navy Seal Dave Ricker. Their meet-cute is seriously, se [...]

      In Christmas At Seashell Cottage (Jewell Cove 1.5) by Donna Alward, Charlie is a local Doctor in Jewell Cove. She loves where she lives, what she does and dreams of finding the right man to settle down with one day. She feels lonely at times and has a hard time getting to know people in a small town where everyone knows each other. Part of the problem is that she keeps herself somewhat distant, thinking that is the right thing for her to do as the Doctor of many of these people. She is also deal [...]

    • Elizabeth says:

      I glanced over several of the book’s reviews before I began reading and the one word that kept popping up was “heartwarming.” After I finished it, I can see why. This is a heartwarming story of two lonely people who’ve found each other during the Christmas season. Not wanting to rush too fast or label their feelings, Charlie and Dave set a leisurely pace in getting to know one another, and both falling hard and fast in the process.It was so easy to fall in love with these characters. Cha [...]

And that isn't helping her find love.Lately, though, Charlie's been watching a handsome guy down on the docks, while eating her lunch at Breezes. When they meet while helping decorate the church for Chri [...]

    • Catherine Greenfeder says:

      When Charlie Yang, a local doctor in the town of Jewell Cove, Maine, volunteers to help with the nativity scene outside the Jewell Cove Church, she intended it as a way to feel more a sense of belonging outside of her work in the town. She also harbors a secret crush on Dave, a man who worked on the docks, and to her astonishment, he shows up as she is setting up the manger. They're both surprised moments later when the Baby Jesus is replaced by a real infant, abandoned by its mother in the cold [...]

Part of this new life just so happens to involve drooling over one of the local dock workers and wondering who he was and what it would be like to be with him.

      3.5-4 StarsThis story is one of three novellas within the holiday novella anthology, It Must Be Christmas. This particular story is the longest coming in at close to 200 pages. Leaving a large city medical career behind, Charlotte (Charlie) opts for a career as a small town MD. Growing up as an only child, she longs for companionship and a family. Ex-Seal, Dave Ricker, is temporarily working in the boat yard while he decides his next move. After a meet-cute in front of the town's nativity, a mut [...]

    • Melissa says:

      This is a quintessential Christmas romance. The setting is an idyllic Maine coastal town complete with tree-lighting ceremony and nativity scene. Dave and Charlene are two people who are looking for love but afraid to commit. I fell in love with both characters and was pulling for them the entire time and it was wonderful when they finally come together but I still wanted more. Given the nature of holiday romances they are shorter and are usually teasers to full-length stories in a series. I am [...]

    • Cindy says:

      Christmas at Seashell Cottage is the first book that I have read in this series. I loved it and think I could live in Jewell Cove! The author paints a perfect picture of the holidays with her words. I felt like I knew exactly what the town, the shops, the manger, Charlie's cottage and the people looked like.This is a heartwarming romance set at Christmas. I loved the day they went shopping and could just picture all the shops and the street decorated. The author wrote a wonderful story and the c [...]

    • Clare O'Beara says:

      This is a light romantic read with good depth of characterisation and setting. We get contrasts and compassion as a young woman who feels desperate abandons her baby in a manger in a Maine town's Nativity scene. The principal characters are a young doctor and a roving dock worker, who come across the baby after an evening of hot chocolate around the town tree and fortunately prior to repairing to a bar. The lady doctor has been attracted to her rugged helpmate when putting up decorations, but is [...]

    • Psusan says:

      Christmas at Seashell Cottage is a lovely small town story of learning to trust. Having lived in a small town for many years, Donna Alward has hit the nail directly on the head with what can be the downside of small towns. It can be hard for outsiders to feel a part of a place where many share the same past. That can be difficult for a new person who longs for s sense of community. I find Charlie Yang to be such a person. From here, the story reads like the romantic Christmas movies that draw me [...]

      Charming, heart-warming, HEA holiday romance about a doctor who is having a hard time fitting in to her small town and an ex-Navy Seal who is afraid to commit. They meet at a holiday decorating gathering and feel an immediate attraction. When they discover an abandoned baby, they are drawn even closer together. But both are afraid to make a commitment, so there's a lot of dancing around their feelings for each other. It's a nice and pleasant read, but some of the "problems" between them seem a l [...]

    • Toni FGMAMTC says:

      This story is about two people who didn't really know what they were missing until they found each other. Actually, both felt that something was lacking in their lives, but they weren't sure how to find what they needed. It's a serious storyline that deals with everyday difficulties in life and love.Charlie is a doctor who moved to Jewell Cove to get away from the city. She still doesn't quite feel like a local though. Dave is an ex SEAL who is also new to town. They go through some grown up pro [...]

    • Wendy says:

      As much as I was excited to read this novella, it didn't really live up to my hopes for it. I ended up only mildly curious to know where the baby came from, where he'd end up and whether Charlie and Dave would end up together. The settings were beautifully described, but the characters were rather thin and flat for me. Occasionally, they'd become more interesting, but they'd almost immediately revert back to thin and flat. I read somewhere that there's another book before this one and that this [...]

    • Eileen says:

      A very short and easy read for an afternoon. A nice story for the holidays and a romance for Charlie and Dave. She's admired him from afar, watching him work on the docks as she ate at the diner. He's in town for a little while until he figures out his future plans. They strike up a friendship and then come across a baby in a manger. Two closed off individuals who learn to open up and finally be honest with themselves and with each other. I hope it all works out for them too. It is a beautiful c [...]

    • SuperWendy says:

      Even though this is a novella I felt it was a bit too long. Not enough conflict to sustain the story and the abandoned baby boy in the manger felt little undercooked. That said, the climactic moments at the end when the hero and heroine must come to terms with their growing feelings for each other are fantastically well done. Heart-ripping, emotional, all around lovely. An OK read that gets some added oomph towards the end.
