Description from Amazon.com:
SEASON’S KISSES . . . Wild child Chloe Thompson can’t believe how much things have changed. She still can’t get enough of her sexy husband Sawyer, but he seems to prefer working to impending fatherhood. So tonight, a very pregnant Chloe is escaping her troubles at the town Christmas party. Sheriff Sawyer Thompson hopes surprising Chloe at the party will give him a chance to set things right. But as the snow begins to fall and the wind rages, he wonders whether he can make it back in time. While mother nature conspires to keep Sawyer and Chloe apart, an unexpected arrival will require them to kiss and make up . . . and ring in the happiest holiday Lucky Harbor has ever seen.
This story will especially appeal to those who remember being in love and having your first child. Chloe is 8 months pregnant and she is having ups and downs from hormone retribution. Sawyer is trying to work extra jobs to build a room onto their house for the baby. They have been married 5 years and this baby is a total surprise. This is a story that will ring true to anyone who has been pregnant. Jill Shalvis has spun a tale that rings of reality so we can assume that Ms Shalvis has been there/done that.
This is a short story of 65 pages, during the holiday hustle and bustle it only takes an hour to escape with this heartwarming, humorous, sometimes sexy story. There is a good dose of Christmasy feeling thrown in for good measure.
