Merry Christmas Baby by Dahlia Rose is a poignant story that touches sensitive issues involving loss, guilt, grieving and finally healing. Noah was ravaged with guilt over his best friend Jason’s death but he could just have easily been hit by the sniper. In the aftermath of the tragedy two families are left broken. The author does a great job of bringing these two broken people together, creating an outlet to grieve and heal. Noah is tortured by his interest in his best friend’s wife but Naomi won’t forget Jason, she is just ready to move on. What better person than with someone who will help her to keep Jason’s memories alive? Naomi did not actively seek out a partner but Noah coming into her life could be seen as fate. I enjoyed this story because the subject matter of grief is handled very tastefully. The plot is also current and relatable considering our country is at war and overall this was a very well told story.

Noah Montgomery knows the importance of his role as sniper for his unit. Imagine his horror when he takes his eyes off the scope of his rifle for a split second and in that second a bullet rips through his best friend, taking his life. For months Noah lives with the guilt of failing his friend, his wife and their unborn child. Grief would have consumed Naomi had it not been for her infant daughter. It is through nurturing Natalie she begins to heal. The last thing she needs is someone stirring up old wounds but it happens when Noah shows up on her doorstep. Shared grief brings them together but Noah is conflicted about desiring his friend’s widow. A Christmas miracle occurs when Noah has a dream in which Jason gives him his blessings. It is not the Christmas Naomi envisioned; it’s better.
