Laura L. Walker grew up in a large family in the beautiful Gila Valley of southern Arizona. From the time she was young, she spent hours drawing characters on paper and fantasizing about their adventures. Life became more serious, however, when she met her own hero at Northern Arizona University and they later became the parents of six children. In between spurts of grocery shopping, sewing costumes or quilts, transporting kids to practices, and making dinner, Laura still enjoys putting her imagination to good use. She is the author of two contemporary romances, Pierced by Love and The Matchup. Caitlyn's Christmas Wish is her first novella.
Sweet Read! This is a nice read for the CHRISTmas season with a unique and different plot! I loved the family, and the characters back grounds are very interesting! And I absolutely LOVED some of the last scenes!!! I do wish it had been a little longer though. Some of it felt a little rushed, and I didn't want it to be over so soon! ;) There were times the characters seemed a touch too trusting or naive. But the messages of CHRISTmas and the hope of redemption shine bright at the heart of this tale! :)
