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.
We have Julia who finally returned home after the death of her husband and young son. She only plans on staying for the holidays because it's too painful for her to be there. While in town she reconnects with Chase. Chase was her husband's best friend and he is also a single father now. There has always been an attraction between the two but they never acted on it before. I really enjoyed reading this story about the two of them. The writing, the build up everything was spot on in this story. My only complaint was that I wish it was longer!! I love how Julia interacted with Maggie who is Chase's daughter. Even though she reminded him of her son, she never let that bring her down and was so good to Maggie. Chase and Julia both have issue from their past they haven't fully dealt with and it was nice to see them make a step in the right direction. This book is a little on the heavy side for a holiday read but I love heavy reads so it didn't bother me. This book will definitely tug at your heartstrings and put you in the holiday spirit.

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.
