About the book:
From a USA Today bestselling author who RaeAnne Thayne calls “heartfelt and delightful” comes a charming novella in the Christmas Colorado series about a small town boutique owner finding her second chance at love.
Sophia Dane’s life is back on track. After losing her husband in a horrible accident, she’s finally in a happy place. She turned her grief, guilt, and — most of all — the resentment her husband’s family heaped on her after Bryce’s death, into motivation to open a boutique on Main Street in the small-town of Christmas, Colorado. Ready to start anew and ring in the New Year with her friends, Sophie never expects to come face-to-face with her brother-in-law, Adam.
Coming home to Christmas was the last thing that Adam Dane wanted to do. But when he bumps into Sophia — his brother’s widow who he’s been in love with since…forever — he realizes that making the trip home was fate giving him a second chance. Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with him after the way his family treated her. Adam knows he has a lot of making up to do, but first he needs to convince her to trust him — and his family — again.
One Night in Christmas by Debbie Mason is a contemporary romance novella that is a companion read to the Christmas, Colorado series. As with most romance series each book in the series features a new couple from this small town so they can be read in any order or as standalones if choosing to do so. There are hints and appearances of previous characters though as the story unfolds in the current book for those fans of the entire series to get updates on the characters they’ve come to love.
Sophia Dane finally feels like she is in a good place and recovering from the grief of losing her husband. Sophia has opened up her own boutique on Main Street in the small-town of Christmas, Colorado and is doing well. What Sophia didn’t want was her ex brother-in-law, Adam, showing up in Christmas since her husband’s family never seemed to approve of her but little does Sophia know, Adam has always hid his own feelings from her.
I started reading Debbie Mason’s books a few years back and really enjoy them. One Night in Christmas has her same strong writing with plenty of depth to the plot and characters that I’ve come to expect. This one wasn’t my favorite however simply in the fact it was the ex’s brother but even being iffy with a family connection to me everything else was still spot on leaving it at 4 stars.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
