Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor

Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor - Lisa Kleypas

I am ambivalent about this book. It's well written, I liked the characters. I didn't like that Mark was in a relationship with Shelby for over half the book. Mark does string Shelby along. Conveniently, Shelby does say something that I thought was inappropriate. What happened afterword felt too convenient. Granted, Mark doesn't actively pursue Maggie until Shelby is out of the picture.
I thought Maggie was hot and then cold, etc. Maggie and Mark's relationship happened fast. This would have been better if a bit longer. The story suffered because of the length.
I did like Sam and would like him to have a story. Hell, even Alex too.
