Chasing Christmas Eve is the fourth in New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis's Heartbreaker Bay series, featuring her trademark gift for humour, warmth and romance. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts and Marie Force.
Run for the hills temporarily. That's Colbie Albright's plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie's so over it that she's under it. She's also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she's pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won't be a stranger for long.
Spence's commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn't have to worry about the powerful - OK, crazy hot - chemistry he's got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself...just because she's gorgeous and a great listener...just because she gets Spence immediately doesn't mean he won't be able to let Colbie go. Does it?
Now the clock's ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.

Great holiday read
Jill Shalvis is a new author to me but I love Christmas so this book was a must read and it did not disappoint, in fact I'm going to go back and read the other three books in the Heartbreaker Bay Series.
On the face of it Colbie and Spence are very different but once you start reading their story you see just how much they have in common, both have family issues and both are workaholics, can the sweet funny woman break down the barriers the hot stand off-ish geek has put around himself.
I loved the banter and the chemistry that Spence and Colbie have and once you add in the friendship, loyalty and protection that the other characters share , I think you will find this is the perfect holiday read. After all what's not to love about a holiday romance that leaves you smiling like a Cheshire Cat.
Looking forward to more from this author.
