To have and to hold from this day forward…
Wedding bells are ringing in the charming town of Christmas, but not for Vivian Westfield. She’s just had her heart trampled under the cowboy boots of Chance McBride and lost her dream job at a big-city newspaper. But when she returns for a wedding, she stumbles on a story that could resurrect her career. First, though, she’ll have to deal with the handsome man standing in her way… and a still-burning flame that’s too hot to ignore.
Chance recognizes trouble when he sees it. He just didn’t expect to find it in the first-class cabin on the flight home for his father’s wedding. Yet there she is, as gorgeous as ever. Vivi dared Chance to want things he knew he could never have. It’s why he left her. But Christmas’s meddling matchmakers have them firmly in their sights. So if they want to survive the next week, they’ll have to play the part of an adoring couple—an irresistible charade that may give them a second chance at the real thing…
This is the first book I have read in the Christmas, Colorado series by Debbie Mason. But I have to tell you I fell completely in love with this town and its people. They are crazy, determined and so much fun. But there are a few things they take seriously: danger, family and love. There is no messing around especially if the one you care the most about is being threatened, even when you are the biggest threat.
Vivian doesn’t have her dream job anymore. It was taken away from her. But she has a job and she is good at it. Well, kind of. She actually hates what she is doing now, but she knows if she works at it, she can end up back where she belongs doing the investigative work again. But fate, and apparently the fine folks in Christmas, Colorado, have another idea for her. But she doesn’t want to deal with all of that. She is going to the wedding and leaving town right after. She doesn’t want to face the one man that was a game changer for her. She doesn’t want to see Chance again. She would rather wrap herself in her own little world where Superman saves the day.
But once she boards that plane to head to Colorado for the wedding, she suddenly is reminded why this entire trip is a very bad idea. The cowboy sitting next to her is the one who she fell hard and fast for but he walked away and left her in pieces. She will not give him the satisfaction of letting him know how much he really affected her. And trust me, there is nothing he wants more than to avoid the matchmaking crap when he heads home.
The past and present collide in Christmas. The chemistry between Viv and Chance is there and I just kept hoping he would pull his head out of the past and see what was right in front of him the entire time. But it’s not until she is at risk that he takes the chance. Will it be worth it? Can he leave the past behind and find a future or will everything he loved in the past be the ultimate sentence for him for the rest of his life?
This story was witty and charming and I wanted to pull out my map and find this quaint little town and visit. This is a great read and it kept anxiety high but it was more than that, it was a touching story of finding the truth and building a future from the past.

ABOUT DEBBIE MASON
MY DREAM of becoming a published author took a backseat to raising my children and running several businesses with my husband. In 2007, we sold the businesses and our youngest graduated from high school, giving me time to focus on my writing. I joined two romance writing groups and began letting my characters do and say what they wanted to.
DREAMS DON’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE and six manuscripts and an agent later, writing as Debbie Mazzuca, my debut book, LORD OF THE ISLES, was published in 2010 by Kensington Books. I wrote two more historical paranormals for Kensington, garnering nominations for best paranormal from the Golden Leaf, Romance Reviews, and a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination, as well as a Holt Medallion Medal of Honor.
A NEW CHAPTER BEGINS as I’m now writing a contemporary romance series set in the fun-filled fictional town of Christmas, Colorado. My characters make me laugh and cry and, like me, they get their happy-ever-after. After 32 years of marriage my husband is still the man of my dreams. And those amazing children of mine turned out even more incredible than I ever could have hoped for. The arrival of our adorable grandbaby last year has made our lives complete. But I wouldn’t say no to a dozen more–babies or books
