Publisher's Summary

Author Kaya Quinsey returns with her trademark blend of romance and adventure in this pause-resisting story about a love to remember and a Christmas never to forget.

Successful broadcaster Jessica Beaton has it all: the perfect New York City apartment, high-flying career, and handsome boyfriend. And with Christmas around the corner, she has her sights set on one thing: a ring. 

But Jessica is humiliated when her co-host and boyfriend, Brett Fanshaw, almost proposes to her on-air before backing out, leaving her dumped and embarrassed on national television. In the midst of her heartbreak, Jessica leaves to go home to Pebble Shores for the holidays for the first time in years. 

While retreating at her family's seaside cottage to evaluate her life, Jessica finds herself butting heads with Dean Adams, the mayor of Pebble Shores, who isn't thrilled to have the media spotlight shed on their small town. Jessica couldn't imagine anyone being more of a Grinch.

Over the Christmas season, Jessica finds herself more enamored with life in Pebble Shores, the community spirit, and to her own surprise, Dean Adams. Can a small-town mayor and big-city broadcaster have the romance that Jessica always dreamed of?

Enjoyed this audible

I really enjoyed this audio book. It had a lot of love in it which is so often lacking in our world today. The characters were great and I fell in love with them. Specially Jessica and Adams. Good clean entertainment. I will certainly read more by Kaya Quinsey.

Right amount of everything

I was fo forced to put the audio book down halfway through due to much needed sleep and couldn’t wait to get back to it the first chance I got. It has got everything, romance, adventure, drama etc. All in a right amount.

Great audio

I listened to the audio version of this book I checked out from my local library. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characterization is very good and this listener got caught up in the emotions of the characters. Tissues needed, both sad and happy tears. Not many books do that to me, so brava to the author.

This book was so well written

This book was so well written the words flow while your reading that you don't realize how much you've read. Jessica's love story is easy without any issues until it isn't anymore. The twist was a nice surprise. Dean is perfect for her. I enjoyed reading this book and I am pretty sure that you will enjoy reading this book as well.

I loved Coastal Christmas!

I loved Coastal Christmas! Kaya Quinsey's words and characters never disappoint. You find yourself fully enraptured and unwilling to let go of the characters or their world! The characters are well developed, bold, flawed, and interesting. The story is fun, steamy and sweet. There was an inspired plot twist that I didn't see coming and just WOW!. Continue writing more stories like this that may inspire all readers.

What a great story!

You guys! What a great story. I can't tell you all the things I love because it would give too much plot away, and that would be a bummer. But I can say Jessica is such an awesome, strong heroine. And Dean is a great alpha mixed with a soft side. This story was full of sweetness and hopes. Must read!

Brilliant story!

Yet another brilliant story from the mind of Kaya Quinsey! The artistry with which she weaves previously mentioned characters together with major characters from her other books to create brand new stories is what keeps me coming back for more! The way in which she creates here beautifully flawed characters makes them leap from the pages. I am a fan of you dear author!

I loved it!

This book was just as awesome as every one of her others. If you love alpha men, strong women, intelligent, witty and clever banter, then her books are the ones you should reach for every time. Even when you go in thinking you know pretty much how the story will go, Kaya Quinsey surprises you every time with a twist that you didn't see coming. I really enjoyed reading her stories specially this one.

Five Stars!

A Coastal Christmas is like your fave cupcake indulgence you can't resist, sweet, satisfying, yummy goodness with every bite. After one you want more. I loved that this dabbled in romantic suspense it's terrific to see people branch out and do it successfully. Dean and Jessica was a great couple mentioned in this book. Jessica was a girl that full of hope and she has a heartwarming character that makes this story more beautiful.
