Happy Ever After In Christmas
by Debbie Mason
It’s beginning to look a lot like love . . .
As her thirtieth birthday approaches, deputy Jill Flaherty decides it’s time to live a little. When she walks into Sawyer Anderson’s bar in her sexiest dress, she’s not thinking that he’s her brother’s best friend or about the many women he dated during his years as a pro hockey player. All she’s thinking is that it’s finally time to confess to her longtime crush how she truly feels.
Sawyer is done being a player on and off the ice. Yet no one in the small town of Christmas seems to believe he’s ready to settle down, not Jill, and certainly not Jack, who is determined to keep Sawyer from breaking his little sister’s heart. But as Sawyer and Jill’s relationship heats up, can he prove that he’s her happy ever after?
Not that she was beautiful; the only way she stopped traffic was by turning on her siren.
Her lumbersexual. He sounds wonderful doesn’t he, Alice? … We’re so happy she has a beau. We thought she was a lesbian, you know.
As he walked back down the road, she reached over the seat and grabbed the bullhorn. She yelled into it, ‘I love you, Sawyer Anderson.’ She was pretty sure all of Christmas heard her.
Silly me, I really should pay more attention. I picked up this book thinking it was about Christmas, well, it was, but not the season. Christmas was the small town featured in all seven books of this entertaining series, and I would love to go backward and read the previous six. Each character mentioned in this tightly knit, meddling, and gossipy group sounded interesting and noteworthy. I wanted to know them all, well, most of them anyway. The writing was engaging and vacillated from angsty and emotive to humorous and amusing. Also included were hits of steam, intrigue, personal loss, policewoman action, and tied up at the end with a pretty bow and sigh of relief HEA.
