I don't think that Lori Wilde has ever let me down. All of her books that I have picked up have been an utter joy to read. This one is no different even though my tolerance of Christmas themed anything is extremely low all year round.
I loved Lissy from the moment we met her while she was in the supermarket having a minor meltdown in the baking aisle--I've been there. She was strong and smart although she did have a tendency towards being a pushover. But as the book went on, she got stronger and grew a backbone. I really liked her development in that respect. I absolutely adored Rafferty as well. He is one of the best cowboy heroes I have come across in a good long while. He was just a good guy and he may have landed himself a spot on my favorite heroes list.
I loved this book. I really did. Lissy and Rafferty were perfect together and had such a sweet chemistry. I also loved Kyle and I am not even close to being a "kid" person at all. The presence of the obligatory "adorable child" has the tendency to turn me off to a book but I really enjoyed Kyle's presence and the sweet connection that formed between him and Rafferty. And I really appreciate that there was no "exhibit the child" type of showboating. He was important to the storyline and that's probably why I liked him so much. I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and full of small town charm and just about everything that I like.
