If You Believe
By Mya O'Malley
Blurb:Sometimes love only comes once in a lifetime. For some lucky people, it is possible to love again.
Melody and Jack had shared an unforgettable love story that abruptly came to an end. Melody, left picking up the pieces, finds herself alone years later, with no hope or desire to date again. With the holiday season approaching, Melody finds it particularly difficult to get Jack out of her thoughts.
Jack isn’t sure if he’s an angel or a ghost, but his mind is set on one thing only, finding a new love for Melody by Christmas Eve at midnight. Easier said than done, with many obstacles to tackle, Jack underestimates how difficult the task is. With conflicting emotions, Jack takes it upon himself to find a man for a woman he still loves.
With the clock ticking as the holidays approach, this charming story of finding love the second time around will have you laughing and crying, but ultimately, it will have you believing in true love.

Rating: 3.5 Stars - LIKED
If You Believe is a short story centered around the holiday season. It’s been about 3 years since Melody lost her husband, Jack. Jack is now an angel/ghost, and he wants Melody to finally make peace with what had happened in the past and move on with her life. He makes the decision to shift into a man named Oliver so that he can try and find someone special for Melody.
She may have seemed fine on the outside working daily at her bookstore, but inside Melody was struggling to move on. The best that I can describe this story without revealing too much is that Jack, as Oliver, is there to nudge her in the right direction to open her heart and find love again. He was a little desperate for my liking; however, I admire his persistence and determination. Jack was so in love with Melody that he just wanted make sure she was going to be ok before he made his leave permanent. A light, fun, and sweet story!
