Maeve Buchanan can't help trying to make things better. So when an early snowstorm strands a young homeless family in Valley Ridge, she secretly hatches a plan to have a house for them by Christmas. Prickly, skeptical newcomer Aaron Holder unintentionally gets in the way of her scheme, so Maeve has no choice but to bring him on board (and the whole town, as well)—with results that are both heartwarming and ultimately romantic. VERDICT A generous heroine who shares everything but herself and a smart but wary hero who needs to make peace with his past find friendship, love, and belonging in this sweet confection that channels It's a Wonderful Life and has links to Jacobs's earlier Valley Ridge books. Jacobs (A Walk Down the Aisle: A Valley Ridge Wedding) lives in Erie, PA.
