New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis brings you a heartwarming tale that could only happen in Lucky Harbor . . .


Wild child Chloe Thompson can't believe how much things have changed. She still can't get enough of her sexy husband Sawyer, but he seems to prefer working to thinking about impending fatherhood. So tonight, a very pregnant Chloe is escaping her troubles at the town Christmas party.

Sheriff Sawyer Thompson hopes surprising Chloe at the party will give him a chance to set things right. But as the snow begins to fall and the wind rages, he wonders whether he can make it back in time. While mother nature conspires to keep Sawyer and Chloe apart, an unexpected arrival will require them to kiss and make up . . . and ring in the happiest holiday Lucky Harbor has ever seen. 

Elizabeth's Thoughts
This is a quick read centering on Chloe and Sawyer, well mostly Chloe since Sawyer is away on a DEA mission throughout most of the book. But he’s kept alive through Chloe’s flashbacks and dreams as she constantly kicks herself for being a bitch to him through her pregnancy and the days leading up to Sawyer’s departure.

Having not read the Lucky Harbor series, I was not lost on what was going on in the story but I found myself wanting to know more about all these wonderful characters who are Chloe and Sawyer’s family and friends. Watching these two stubborn people have a baby was humorous and heartwarming. This is a great Christmas read that will satisfy the soul as well as prompt you to put all the Lucky Harbor books on your TBR (to be read) list!

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
