Charlotte Morgan grew up in Mustang Creek, Wyoming, and couldn't wait to escape to the big city. But life in New York isn't as fabulous as she'd like to admit—she's lonely, doing a job she doesn't love and dating too many frogs she meets online.
There was one potential prince, though—Jaxon Locke, a veterinarian with definite possibilities—but his move to Idaho to fill in at his dad's vet practice ended things just as they were getting interesting. What Charlotte doesn't know is that he misses her, more than he expected…
Meanwhile, Charlotte's great-aunt Geneva—the woman who raised her—needs to enter an assisted-living facility. So, just before Christmas, Charlotte moves back home. When Jax catches wind of her move back West, he's determined to get to Wyoming and do whatever it takes to win her back.
Christmas in Mustang Creek is a magical time in a magical place, not least because of a mysterious visitor named Mrs. Klozz. She knows that love is the greatest gift of all, and she's ready to help out Santa by giving these two a push in the right direction!
There's a lot to like in this Christmas story, a sweet second chance romance, lovely small town folks, a bit of Christmas magic, and a lot great food.
The story is riddled with humor, the tone is fun and light, and kept a smile on my face as I was reading. The heat was up a notch from the previous Christmas stories, and the romance, that has lots of potential.
Jaxon is caring, honest, good, and sexy vet, taking care of the animals as well as the people around him. I loved his honesty. From the beginning he was not shy about his feelings towards Charlotte. His intentions were openly talked about, he had a goal in his mind, to be with Charlotte, and was willing to work towards it.
Charlotte was hesitant, she wasn't sure what she wanted in life, when it came to career, love, or anything else. The only thing she seemed to be sure about, was to try to hold Jaxon on an arm's length. But while she is trying to figure out what her future holds, she keeps falling deeper and deeper for Jaxon, and who could blame her, really.
The story is entertaining, Mrs Klozz made me laugh. The town grape wine is hilarious, and the Christmas spirits are high. The whole story takes place in just a few days time, lots of it is lovely Christmas fluff. But I guess that would make this a perfect read during the holidays, and ideal stocking stuffing for any and all romance lovers!
