Christmas in Mustang Creek (The Brides of Bliss County)
About the Book:
Charlotte Morgan grew up in Mustang Creek, Wyoming, and couldn't wait to escape to the big city. But life in New York isn't as fabulous as she'd like to admit—she's lonely, doing a job she doesn't love and dating too many frogs she meets online.
There was one potential prince, though—Jaxon Locke, a veterinarian with definite possibilities—but his move to Idaho to fill in at his dad's vet practice ended things just as they were getting interesting. What Charlotte doesn't know is that he misses her, more than he expected…
Meanwhile, Charlotte's great-aunt Geneva—the woman who raised her—needs to enter an assisted-living facility. So, just before Christmas, Charlotte moves back home. When Jax catches wind of her move back West, he's determined to get to Wyoming and do whatever it takes to win her back.
Christmas in Mustang Creek is a magical time in a magical place, not least because of a mysterious visitor named Mrs. Klozz. She knows that love is the greatest gift of all, and she's ready to help out Santa by giving these two a push in the right direction!
It is a Linda Lael Miller Christmas romance. That really says it all. It was a quick, sweet, hometown (if your hometown features ranches and mountains) story of family, long-time friends, snow, animals, and a little Christmas magic. The only real conflict is inside Charlotte's head, and there isn't much of that. Grab your hot chocolate, curl up in front of the fire and enjoy this holiday treat. Grade: B.
