Sarah Collier was in love with Travis Walker when she was a teenager; she even tried to stop his wedding on Christmas Day proclaiming that they were meant to be together. She dreamed of Travis after she placed the kismet cookies under her pillow. The story was if you put the kismet cookies under your pillow you would dream of your one true love.

Older now, Sarah lives in New York and no longer believes in true love. She is a bestselling author of children's books that she writes as Sadie Cool, and is talked into going back to Twilight, Texas for the Christmas Festival. The clincher is when Sarah reads a letter that a sick little girl has sent to her and is overwhelmed by her feelings.

Travis is now a single father of an eight year old girl, Jazzy, who has severe breathing problems that might cost her life if not properly treated. Jazzy's mom could not handle the sickness and left. The matchmaking older women of Twilight know that Sarah Collier is Sadie Cool, but choose not to tell Travis, believing that they are true loves who will end up together.

When Travis and Sarah first meet again, Travis is in a Santa suit so Sarah does not know who he is, but Travis thinks Sadie looks very familiar. They are thunderstruck when each realizes who the other is. They begin to spend time together while Sarah stays in Twilight. Travis shows Sarah that there really is love and Christmas magic. Sarah is afraid of being hurt. She has fallen in love with both Travis and Jazzy but her life is now in New York; can they really find true love?

The First Love Cookie Club is the third story in Lori Wilde's Twilight series. Travis and Sarah both harbor emotions that need to be worked through, but as they spend time together they realize how right they are for each other. Secondary characters enrich the story with their humor and matchmaking attempts. I look forward to the next installment of the Twilight series.
