Kristie fell out of love with Christmas in D.C. when her father died three years ago. But this Christmas is different now that she’s engaged to Zach. She’s ready to embrace the spirit of the season again, at least until she catches Zach with another woman on her way to the National Tree Lighting. She confronts him and runs out of her nightmare, but arrives at Presidential Park just in time to trip over a dream…

A.J. Dawson is back home in D.C. after a whirlwind global music tour. All he wants is to celebrate a quiet, traditional D.C. Christmas with his socialite almost-fiancée, Sabrina, but she’s got different ideas—A.J. serving at her beck-and-call, hanging on her arm at high-class parties, while ignoring his every wish, except one. Fed up, he’s determined to enjoy the season his way and makes his way to the National Tree Lighting, a moment too late to get in before the gates closed, but just in time to fall for the right girl…

When they are unexpectedly parted with only each other’s first name, can a Missed Connection ad and a little Christmas magic bring them back together?

The secret to an excellent novella is that even though it is short on pages it still delivers on a full story. Five Golden Rings starts by giving us Kristy and A.J.’s backstory. I instantly felt a connection to both of them and wanted them to “win” at the game of love. And, when A.J. said this I had to stop, think about something personal, and then refocus on the book:

“But I’ve come to learn that stuff isn’t important at all. What you need to ask yourself is, when you come home, do you have someone you can talk to who will understand you, even if they don’t always agree with you? Do you have someone you can trust? Do you have someone who believes that compromise must go both ways, that it’s not always one person making the effort? And when special times like the holidays come around, do you have someone who will go to the tree lighting with you? Even if they don’t want to be at the tree lighting, it’s ok as long as they’re with you?”

Brady is one of the few authors I unconditionally support. Her books are always entertaining and well-written. But, my most favorite aspect of her writing style is that she writes realistic characters. All of the females in her books either remind me of myself, of my girlfriends, or at least some type of situation that could happen to us. Five Golden Rings is a welcomed addition to my K.L. Brady collection and it was a great way to kickstart my excitement for the holiday season!!
