This Christmas season, Christina Grey Cooper has finally accepted that her marriage to her college sweetheart Dare is over.
So she packs up her things, leaves a note, and heads back home for Marietta, Montana in the hope that a Christmas with her family will help piece her head—if not her heart—back together.
Dare isn’t about to let the love of his life go, and who cares if that’s what he thought he wanted? He’ll do what it takes to win Christina back—even if that means suffering through Christmas with his in-laws, pretending to still be happily married for the sake of family harmony, and trying not to get caught up in all that holiday nonsense he’s never believed in…
But Christmas is magical, especially in Montana.
And if Dare has any hope of convincing Christina to give him one more chance, it’s going to be here…
This story was so much more than I expected.
What powerful, deep, raw emotions Christina and Dare have to go through, while fighting for their marriage to survive, fighting for their life.
When all the smoke and mirrors comes down, and they are faced with the honest reality, and they have to admit, they both are at fault to arrive at this place in their life, it is compelling.
When Dare is fighting with the demons of his childhood, it is poignant and moving. How much they love and adore each other is so touching.
The love, devotion, and support from Christina's family is sweet.
The whole story is full of sensitive, rough emotions. With a powerful message of how love can truly heal the old wounds.
