Ho Ho Uh-Oh! Can They Make the Best of an Accidental Noel?
This wasn’t the Christmas either Kiernan or Bexley expected. Snowbound in a shoddy convenience store with the least hospitable storekeeper in Wyoming, two other stranded travelers, four kids forgotten by Santa – oh, yes, and each other.
Because there was that thing that happened last summer. A mistake. They both thought that… though for different reasons. And agreeing it was a mistake didn’t make it any more comfortable to run into each other at the ranch of their mutual friends, the Curricks of the Slash-C Ranch. Especially when those same friends suggest, nudge, and push them into traveling East together to join their respective families for Christmas by spending eighteen hours in a car together.
Except they never made it out of Wyoming, thanks to an early-arriving blizzard.
And now their choice is to have one of the least festive Christmases on record or work with what they have and each other to make this a real Christmas for those kids … and maybe discover what Santa has in mind for them.
Making Christmas, another installment in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Wyoming Wildflowers series, is a fun, feel-good, moving contemporary romance. Readers of the Wyoming Wildflowers series came to know Kiernan, younger brother of A New World’s Cahill, in A Cowboy Wedding – and even had a hand in determining the young Irishman’s romantic future. And for more holiday cheer, read the love-at-first-sight story that planted the wildflowers seeds in Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning.
Readers’ raves of A Cowboy Wedding (from 5-star reviews):
