Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs {Giveaway}

A single father who yearns to be a family man, Logan O'Donnell is determined to create the perfect Christmas for his son, Charlie. The entire O'Donnell clan arrives to spend the holidays in Avalon, a postcard-pretty town on the shores of Willow Lake, a place for the family to reconnect and rediscover the special gifts of the season.
One of the guests is a newcomer to Willow Lake—Darcy Fitzgerald. Sharp-witted, independent and intent on guarding her heart, she's the last person Logan can see himself falling for. And Darcy is convinced that a relationship is the last thing she needs this Christmas.
Yet between the snowy silence of the winter woods and the toasty moments by a crackling fire, their two lonely hearts collide. The magic of the season brings them each a gift neither ever expected—a love to last a lifetime.

It had to happen sometime. I had my first DNF Christmas romance.
As I was browsing through the bookshop over the weekend, the cover caught my eye and the blurb made me want to read it.
I tried. I really, really, really tried to finish it but I couldn’t. I picked it up on numerous occasions only to find that Darcy, the heroine, still annoyed the crap out of me. I even tried reading it with a side of spiked eggnog—and still, no joy. So rather than chucking the book against the wall, I sat it down on the nightstand and I vowed never to pick it up again.
While I liked what I read of Logan, the here who is a single father, he couldn’t entice me to finish the book. Even when I skimmed through the book to see if something would catch my attention, I still found Darcy and her anti-kids way to irk me.
Although I’ve adored Susan Wiggs other romances, Candlelight Christmas just wasn’t for me.
So, lovelies, I am going to pass this book to someone who will actually enjoy it.

1 winner will win Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs as well as a Christmas spider for their tree (just tell me green or red).
To enter, leave a comment. Winner will be picked on December 19.
