Betrayed by his ex-fiancée, Dr. Wyatt Gallagher turns to the one woman he can always trust – his best friend, Mia Watson. After moving away, Wyatt has realized he wants more than friendship with the beautiful artist. With that in mind, he convinces Mia to come to Marietta for the Christmas holidays. But wooing Mia is surprisingly difficult — especially given the passionate night they’ve already shared.
Though Mia Watson has loved Wyatt Gallagher for years, he's always seen her as a friend, never a lover. Except for one unforgettable interlude when comfort turned to passion. Then Wyatt moved back to Montana, leaving Mia with an unexpected consequence of their night together--and soon, heartbreak to follow.
Faced with the fulfillment of her dreams, Mia knows she must reveal the consequences of their night together to Wyatt. But having withheld the truth for so long, will her confession destroy his trust in her, ending their friendship and any hope of a future together?
THE DOCTOR’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL is full of all kinds of warm and fuzzy feelings. Mia and Wyatt are great characters and I really enjoyed reading their friends-to-lovers story.
Wyatt moved back home to Montana shortly after his fiancée cheated on him. But not before breaking up with her and sharing one night of passion with his best friend Mia. He’s faced with attending his brother’s wedding and invites Mia to his hometown to accompany him to the wedding and spend Christmas with him. You see, Wyatt has finally realized that his feelings for Mia are deeper than the close friendship they shared. He’s invited Mia to the wedding to help him get through it, but also to spend time with her and hopefully explore these uncharted feelings.
Mia is an artist living and working in Colorado when she gets a call from her friend Wyatt inviting her to come to a wedding. She’s surprised and a little reluctant, but ultimately agrees to go. The thing is, Mia has loved Wyatt almost as long as she’s known him. He broke her heart when he decided to up and move back home and hasn’t spoken to her since. Mia decides that she’s going to make this trip count and show Wyatt exactly what he’s missing while trying to keep her heart from breaking all over again. There’s just one little (big) thing, she’s got a secret she’s kept from him. Can she and Wyatt start something special, or will this secret destroy any possibility of a relationship between them?
Wyatt is charming, sincere and very romantic. Mia is a strong female, but very guarded. She’s afraid of the feelings she has for Wyatt and of the secret she still hasn’t yet revealed to him. Her character was easily relatable.
What I loved about this story was the support of the secondary characters. Wyatt’s family is hard-working and fun-loving. I want to know more about them and the people of this quaint Montana town!
THE DOCTOR’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL is a quality read full of heart!
I want to thank the publisher for generously offering me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
