Sometimes a little Christmas magic can rekindle the most unexpected romances…
Sheriff Kace Laramie and his brothers found long-awaited happiness when they moved to Coldwater, Texas, as foster children. But the feel-good story has one bittersweet twist—his brief marriage to local rich girl Jana Parker. When that blew up, Kace vowed never to marry again and has kept Jana mostly off his mind…until she comes back to town, needing his help.
Recently divorced for a second time, Jana just wants to create a good life for her young daughter—and keep her mother from marrying Kace’s gold-digging father. Asking him for help may be wrong given their history. But as the stakes—and their chemistry—make the Christmas season sizzle, Jana knows how much more wrong it would be to let a love this magical slip away again…

A Coldwater Christmas
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harlequin Romance via NetGalley and I also purchased one on Harlequin's website.
I just adore Ms. Fossen's books. This one is no different. I just get sucked into the world that she creates and get lost there. I adored Marley (Jana's little girl). Let's just say she is the sweetest thing (especially since Marley LOVES Kace). Kace is the sheriff in Coldwater. He and Jana were high school sweethearts and each other's first love. They married young and because she came from money and Kace was a foster child, Jana's mother was able to create doubts in Jana's mind. Enough doubts for them to divorce. Jana is back in town after being gone for over a decade and her second divorce. She wants to stop her mother from marrying his father. To do that, she figures she needs Kace's help.
The story is one that just enchanted me right from the beginning. My poor e-reader really got a work out. I just couldn't put this one down. Add in stinky bombs, strippers, helium balloons of a man's certain anatomy part, a conniving ex-husband and you get a book that kept me up late into the evening. This was written in my favorite dual POV format. It really made the characters so much more humanized and someone to connect with.
This book is sexy and as such, I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone over the age of 18. Get ready to laugh yourself silly at times as well.
