BUY:

Synopsis: After fleeing her beloved small town five years ago, Julia Bailey is back to spend Christmas with her family. Returning is hard, but keeping the devastating secret about her late husband is even harder. Her place isn’t in Big Sky Country any longer…but the more time she spends with the irresistible Sheriff who saved her once before, and his adorable little daughter, the more Julia starts wishing she could let go of the past and start a new life.
Single dad and county Sheriff Chase Donovan had been secretly in love with his best friend’s wife for years. But after her traumatic loss he knew Julia needed to get away from Shadow Creek, even though helping her leave was the last thing he wanted to do. Now she’s home and he doesn’t intend to lose her a second time. Chase is going to prove to Julia just how good they can be together this Christmas…and forever.


My Review: 

On the first read of Christmas... (4 stars)

Right around mid-November, once the Halloween stuff is put away and we've had at least one good snow, an overpowering urge to read Christmas romances hits me. But I've discovered that not just any will do. While I have read and loved steampunk, scifi, and paranormal holiday romances I must confess it's the sweet romances and ones with Scrooge-type heroes (hello, billionaire romances) that hit the spot.

If you find yourself craving the same type of Christmas romances I cannot recommend those written by Victoria James enough. Her writing is never dull, her characters fit classic tropes without feeling too cookie-cutter, and there's always something special that brings the couple together. Christmas with the Sheriff was no exception!

I am a huge sucker for single dads and Chase was totally smoldering. Julia was easy to like and unexpectedly relatable as well. I imagine most readers with a loving partner and children will find her struggle with loss quite realistic. The chemistry between these two is palpable! Add in a little girl with a devoted dad that could still do with a loving maternal figure and this holiday story is a perfect package for getting into the spirit of the season.

My only strong quibble was feeling like I was dropped into the middle of a series rather than reading a first-in-series book. That said, there is a fabulous set-up for the next one, which I may have to read even though it won't be a Christmas one.

Snowbound with Mr. Wrong

by Barbara White Dailee A Snowflake Valley Novel Publication Date: November 7, 2016 Genres: Adult, Entangled: Bliss, Holiday, Romance

BUY:

Synopsis: Worst. Day. Ever. After Lyssa Barnett’s sister tricks her into reprising her role at Snowflake Valley’s annual children’s party, she doesn’t think anything can be worse than squeezing into her too-small elf costume. Then tall, dark, and way too handsome Nick Tavlock shows up to play Santa…and an unexpected storm leaves them snowbound in the isolated lodge. The last thing Nick wants is to spend a cozy Christmas Eve with a trio of kids and the woman who dumped him. But as much as Lyssa frustrates him, he can’t stop thinking about her. And soon, he’s fighting very un-Santa-like thoughts of kissing a certain sexy Miss Elf under the mistletoe. As Nick starts to fall for Lyssa all over again, he knows it will take nothing short of a miracle to have Lyssa in his arms on Christmas Day.
