Alexandra McHale is facing her first Christmas alone following the untimely death of her father some three months earlier. She lives on the family ranch where her beloved horse, McHale’s Christmas Carol or CeCe as she is affectionately called, is due to give birth in about a week. The weather forecast is for storms with heavy snowfall so she’s planning on sleeping in the barn with CeCe as the generator in the ranch is unreliable and she wants to ensure CeCe keeps warm despite the weather. As she makes her preparations for her Christmas Eve vigil she hears the horrifying sound of a vehicle hitting the guard rail on a dangerous bend in the road. Worried about the occupants she braves the weather to investigate, discovering a truck has side swiped the rail, taking many of the warning reflectors with it. She calls in the information to the Sheriff’s department, places two reflector poles to try to alert drivers to the danger. Returning home to CeCe, tired from the long cross country trek, she then hears another crash, this time followed by the blaring of a vehicle’s horn. That is the start of her Christmas adventure, one that will change her life. Read it yourself to see what and who she finds.
This is a well written chicklit with great characters, a lovely horse, danger from the weather and possible mobsters together with, of course, a romance with a potential HEA. It explores attitudes and feelings of ‘mafia’ family members who make different choices about their lives and is a great read.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
