Overview

Grace Flaherty had given up hope of ever seeing her husband again. After all, it'd been over a year since he went missing in combat. So when he strides through the door of her bakery in downtown Christmas one sunny afternoon, she can hardly believe her eyes. But her happily-ever-after is going to take some effort - because Jack has no memory of his family.

All Jack Flaherty remembers about Christmas is that he couldn't wait to leave town. Now he's a local hero with a wife and son he doesn't know. Even as he struggles to rekindle the romance with his wife, he knows in his heart what he wants: a second chance at love.

This is the first book that I have read by Debbie Mason, I won it in another author's contest. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more. This is a wonderful story about Jack, a soldier held captive and finally returned to his family 17 months later. Jack has amnesia and doesn't remember he is married. Grace has waited for her husband and on the day that she finally decides to move on with her life is the day the news comes that Jack has been rescued. They both have to work to rekindle not only Jack's memories but the love that they once shared. This is a truly inspirational story. I highly recommend it.

What happens to a great loving marriage when memory has been stolen in combat? Grace has been waiting for over a year to hear information about her MIA husband who was captured in combat in Afghanistan. She has moved into the apartment left to them by her husband's late grandmother. She 's also made quit a go of the bakery below the apartment. She and their seventeen month son have found a loving community in Christmas, Colorado.  Grace's joy is almost complete when her husband escapes and is returned home, but a hit on the head has caused, Jack to loose all memory of Grace and their marriage. Further complications come from, Maria, an embedded journalist who escaped with Jack and had become his girlfriend during this time .Grace and Jack want to find their love and life again but it may definitely take some work with all the present and past complications in their lives.  This is a beautiful story that kept me enthralled from page one . The characters and situations are so realistic that it reads like a true story being told to you by a dear friend. This is the second book about the small town of a Christmas, Colorado, but it can definitely be read as a stand alone book. Though I enjoyed it so much that I want to go back and read the story of another of the town couples told in book one--THE TROUBLE WITH CHRISTMAS. Light read with a very serious theme that was dealt with wonderfully.

I loved this book - the second in the series.  I laughed, cried, and swooned.  I think I liked this one better than the first one in the series and that is saying something since I really liked the first one.  This author knows how to write a romantic love story.  I recommend this book to all those of you who love HEA love stories.

The characters grabbed me right away – the first two chapters just knocked me off my feet and kept me going until the very end. I was quite impressed with Mason because she could have easily made their issues overpowering or repetitive but she manages to keep it fresh and engaging page after page. Together Jack and Grace are funny, sweet and sexy. I love seeing their relationship and how they complement each other so well. The secondary characters are just as real and entertaining as the main couple. Mason captures that small town feel so well – loving and supporting each other, occasionally fighting, but most importantly being there when needed. And my favorite part … a town full of eccentric characters means that a ton of material to keep the good reads coming. With a fantastic group of people and an emotionally charged story, Christmas in July is an extremely addictive and enjoyable read. Mason is going to be one of my go-to authors for a long time to come. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

Very nicely written novel. I'm going to try and purchase the other Christmas books as well by Debbie Mason.

Christmas in July was a wonderful read. Grace was so sweet despite her broken heart and I’m glad she was trying to move on, if not for herself, but for her son, little Jack. I could only imagine what she was feeling and was so happy that her MIA husband, Jack, returned home, yet was extremely disappointed with the main result of his memory loss (cue: throwing the Paperwhite across the bed). How awful that must have been for Grace! The community of Christmas, Colorado was hit and miss with me throughout the story, most likely because I was rooting for Grace and Jack and they didn’t always seem to be in favor. In my normal fashion of no spoilers, I will end this with a note that I did not throw the Paperwhite again, but there were a few times where I did yell at it. Thank you Debbie and Grand Central – Forever for such an amazing story!!! I have the Christmas in July paperback in my wish list as well as The Trouble With Christmas! Definitely a series to have on the shelf! I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
