Since tragedy estranged defense attorney Jenna Macintosh from her family, she’s done her best to pretend Christmas doesn’t exist. Not so easy this year when she needs to work with client Lacey Gallagher, who is living on her brother Sawyer’s Christmas tree farm. All those fragrant pines dripping with twinkling lights are bad enough, but when disaster strikes, Jenna is stuck alone in a wooded cabin with Sawyer, the hottest man she’s ever met.
Experience has taught Sawyer Gallagher that smart city women like Jenna don’t want men like him, but when Jenna falls ill, he must abandon his plan to keep his distance and soon he’s trying to work out ways to make her his—and not just for Christmas.

A short, appropriate read for the coming holidays by Sarah Mayberry, on whom I can depend on plumbing the depths of characters regardless of the length of story. The conflict at the end however, seemed blown out of proportion and left me bewildered at what shouldn’t normally be an issue at all – and felt like it was written for the sake of creating conflict in a story that could have easily gone without that traditional route of “short-lived happiness-big quarrel/climax-happy resolution”.
