Sugarplum Way is Book Four in Debbie Mason’s Harmony Harbor series. In it, Mason finally lets us in on some of the secrets alluded to in earlier books.
The matriarch of the town’s leading family had written them all down in her diary. Although she has now departed in body, her ghost lingers on, still meddling and trying to keep the book away from those who might be hurt by the revelations.
Julia, aka Sugarplum, has been keeping a whopper of a secret. To atone for past wrongs, she’s been acting as a fairy godmother instead. Intense, but gorgeous Aiden is one of the recipients of her largesse. His suspicions about her motives don’t keep him from falling under her “magic.”
The rather large cast of characters might be a tad confusing to those who haven’t read the earlier books. The premise and the town, however, are delightful all by themselves. Like her heroine, Mason has a sense of whimsy that makes for a perfect holiday novel.
