Growing up in Sugar Creek, Maya Templeton and Zachary Cole were best friends. After high school, each went out into the world in search of adventure. Maya moved to Florida to explore her passion for baking and pastry-making, eventually establishing her own business: Cupcakes & Dreamscapes. Zach joined the military and became a Marine Scout Sniper.

Now, after years apart, they're both going home for the holidays. They don't seem to have much in common anymore. In fact, Zach seems to have the hots for Maya's business partner.

But when the two get stranded together during a blizzard, they are forced to reexamine their connection. Are Maya and Zach better off "just friends"—just as they were when they were young? Or could it be that true love was there all along?

SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL is a sweet friends-to-lovers story, perfect for any season, though it may be especially felt during Christmas.

Maya Templeton and Zachary Cole have been friends since childhood, but have drifted apart when she went to culinary school and he went to join The Marines. Although, they do keep in touch via emails during the holidays, and Zach sometimes sent pics of himself in cammies. However, this holiday, something was wrong, for Zach had been injured in combat and he was keeping everything within. Though seeing Maya stirred feelings in him, feelings other than lust, he didn't think he was ready for anything more...

Love the tension between Maya and Zach as they felt the attraction yet didn't know whether they want to take it further and maybe risk their friendship. Especially Zach, who had lost so much. He didn't know whether he could take losing Maya, too, if he gambled wrong.

Yet, the spirit of Christmas was in play to set him on the right course. I guess I should've expected it, after they watched a particular show, but I didn't, and it was a pleasant surprise. What I like, too, was the author didn't draw it out, but kept it short and simple and straight to the point.

I enjoyed this story a lot. Dive into the spirit of the season and on't miss out on this scrumptious read!
