Christmas with the Sheriff (Shadow Creek, Montana #1) by Victoria James.
Audience/Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance.
Publication: November 7th 2016 by Entangled Publishing.
After fleeing her beloved small town five years ago, Julia Bailey is back to spend Christmas with her family. Returning is hard, but keeping the devastating secret about her late husband is even harder. Her place isn't in Big Sky Country any longer...but the more time she spends with the irresistible Sheriff who saved her once before, and his adorable little daughter, the more Julia starts wishing she could let go of the past and start a new life.

Single dad and county Sheriff Chase Donovan had been secretly in love with his best friend's wife for years. But after her traumatic loss he knew Julia needed to get away from Shadow Creek, even though helping her leave was the last thing he wanted to do. Now she's home and he doesn't intend to lose her a second time. Chase is going to prove to Julia just how good they can be together this Christmas...and forever.

Get out the kleenex! Or at least I had to! This story just opens up your heart and gives you warm fuzzies and gets you in the mood for Christmas! I sat down and didn’t get up until I was done reading it!

Five years ago, Julia lost her husband and her son to an accident. She ran away afterward. Now she is back visiting her inlaws and her friends. Then Chase shows up there and both find themselves with feelings for the other. Although, Chase has always loved Julia. He just wasn’t the first to capture her heart. Chase’s daughter is also the same age as her son would have been. Julia loves that little girl. Besides, who couldn’t fall in love with her, she cracks me up with her humor and unfailing devotion to her dad. But Maggie and Julia need each other as well!

Julia finds herself still wanting to run away. She is afraid. She isn’t sure she could stand losing her heart again to the Sheriff and his daughter. Silly Julia!

If you want to get in the mood for Christmas, love a tear jerker, love children and their humor, love HEA’s, loving families, and finding someone who loves you totally then this might be for you!

Content: fade to black, but wakes up in the bedroom without clothes on, kissing

I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you’ve ever seen my drawings you’ll know how horrible they must have been. I still draw stick figures). Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.

In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business.

After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction. I’m a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for my characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but I’m quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat.
