About the Book:
On the Denver streets, Officer Paula Lewis is as tough as she needs to be. But away from skyscrapers and suspects, Paula gives back to the community she loves. This holiday season she's moonlighting at the Christmas House, a turn-of-the-century mansion transformed into a festive wonderland to delight local children thanks to volunteers like Paula - and Zach Bennett. Zach left his family's Colorado ranch to sign on as a carpenter at the Christmas House. Freewheeling Zach hopes to make this holiday the merriest yet-from coaxing Paula onto the bunny slopes to filling in as a last-minute Santa. And as she and Zach are drawn together to keep one young boy out of harm's way, Paula realizes that the best gifts are second chances, happy endings, and the kind of love that makes every day warm and bright...
This is a feel-good Christmas romance that, as far as I can remember, had nothing to do with riding a horse in the snow while carrying a Christmas tree. I've felt a lot more like reading lately than like writing reviews, so I may have forgotten something, but if memory serves me, the preferred method of transport in this book was a truck and the setting was in the city of Denver. Also, if memory serves, there were a couple of scenes with passionate kissing but no intercourse. It was the typical Christmas romance--set during the holidays, sweet and not only did the couple end up together, they managed to do a good deed along the way.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. Grade: B-
