His best gift this holiday is her.

In the small town of Crystal Lake, Christmas is a time for sledding, hot chocolate, and cozying up to the fire. For Jake Edwards, it shouldn’t be a time to give in to the feelings he’s always had for Raine--especially since she’s his brother’s widow.

No one annoys Raine quite like her brother-in-law does. But when Jake brings home a tall blond thing from the city who’s bad news, Raine needs to stop him from making the biggest mistake of his life. Does Raine want this woman to leave Crystal Lake because she’s all wrong for Jake? Or is it because she wants him for herself...?

Back with the Bad Boys of Crystal Lake.  I soooo love this series, it totally reminds me of The McCarthy’s of Gansett Island, not that it’s a copycat or anything like that, it’s just that strong sense of family and loyalty surrounding people who have known each other most of the lives. 

Jake and Raine are crumbling in their grief over the loss of Jake’s brother, Raine’s husband Jesse.  Raine withdrew into herself to deal and Jake disappeared, when he returns the process of healing and moving on begins even though neither of them feel capable of making it through that process.  And in the process, everything that has been lurking just beyond the surface starts festering its way to the top.

I can’t wait for the next installment of this series, so far Cain & Maggie are my favorites, but now that I think I’ve figured out who the next couple will be, my favorites just might get bumped.
