Return to Valentine Valley, where Christmas lights are twinkling and first love burns brighter the second time around . . .
When Tony De Luca's ex, Kate Fenelli, waltzes through the door of his tavern and pulls up a bar stool, she turns his balanced world on end. Once they'd been each other's first love, first everything. But then life happened, and they walked away with broken hearts. Now Kate is back in Valentine, and they can't seem to stay out of each other's way. When Tony begins wondering what would happen if they rekindled the sparks, he knows he's in big trouble.
Kate can't believe she's sitting at Tony's bar spilling her life-changing problems to him. He's as gorgeous as ever, and she can't seem to forget how incredible he always made her feel. Still, the door on that chapter of their lives closed long ago. Yet with Christmas buzzing in the air, Kate can't help wondering if anything is possible—even a second chance with the only man she's ever loved.
Valentine Valley, Colo., is the cheery backdrop for a sweet yet predictable holiday tale that pits ex-spouses Kate Fenelli and Tony De Luca against their supportive but not always helpful family and friends. Driven attorney Kate and hometown bartender Tony, divorced for nine years and living in different towns, share custody of their son. When Kate unexpectedly comes home to Valentine Valley, she's startled to learn that Tony still has a thing for her despite his inner avowal that he was well past succumbing to her charms. Kate slowly starts to realize she might still hold a candle for Tony, too, and their simmering attraction ignites again. The cozy familiarity of a small town and entwined local lives provides a charming backdrop for Kate and Tony's cute second courtship, which is challenged by Kate's demanding career and Tony's justified fear of being hurt by her again. Information overload and sometimes stilted dialogue take away from the sweet appeal of the setting and the characters. Series fans will enjoy this warm romance on chilly evenings.
