Christmas With the Sheriff
It took nearly the entire book for the main character to get past her own “perceived” fears. It was a bit much even for me. LOL
That being said, the author did a good job developing the characters and I would be interested in reading the next book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Julia & Chase were a delight to spend time with.
I liked the story. The emotional swings that Julia goes through is heartbreaking. After losing her husband and toddler in a car crash, Julia believes that she is strong enough to spend the holidays with her in-laws and friends in Shadow Creek. New feelings emerge, what ifs bubble to the surface and the longing to be back in the small town make the holidays very difficult for her.
The characters of this Montana town are protective, supportive and understanding. They are real people who take care of their own. It is a warm and charming Christmas story that brings peace to the past and new beginnings for the main characters.
