Widowed Andie Montgomery is planning to give her two young children a wonderful first Christmas in Haven Point—and it doesn't include keeping tabs on Marshall Bailey, the wounded, grouchy sheriff who lives up the street. But there's no way she can refuse her friend Wynona's request to check in on her brother as he recovers, especially as Wyn had saved Andie by taking a bullet for her in a terrifying confrontation. Naturally, Marsh isn't looking for help, but earnest Andie won't take no for an answer. In addition, her chatty four-year-old and his painfully shy older sister take Marsh in hand, and he can't help but be charmed. Is he in danger of falling for them all, including their relationship-wary mom? A mystery, a rebellious teenager, and hints of long-standing town conflict add interest and depth to this ongoing series.
VERDICT A stubbornly independent hero who learns to accept assistance and a heroine afraid of risking another loss take a chance on each other. This holiday-steeped romance overflows with family and wintry small-town appeal. Thayne (Riverbend Road) lives in Northern Utah.
