Overview

A struggling single mom meets a handsome bachelor in Vermont, after running him off the road during a snowstorm. A new Christmas novella by bestselling author Ginny Baird.

Since the death of her military husband two years ago, single mom Christine White has struggled to get by. By throwing herself into her work as a Chicago copywriter, she's managed to keep food on the table but has gradually lost sight of what really matters, like building a bond with her four-year-old son. When Christine's best friend insists she spend Christmas in Vermont so she can get her life in order, Christine initially resists. Little does she know she's in for a memorable holiday that will reignite her faith and reawaken her heart.

Bachelor professor John Steadman has given up on finding the right one. Spending time with his friends while keeping up with his job seems satisfying enough. Then one day close to Christmas, a beautiful woman from Chicago nearly runs him off the road during a snowstorm. What's more, she's got a kid in her car. It's only natural that John and his trusty golden retriever want to help drag them out of a ditch and steer them toward their destination. What John doesn't expect is that soon he'll be hoping Christine and her son will be staying in Vermont - for more than just a little while.

This was one good short novella that was full of all of it...humor, holiday spirit, romance, a mother's love, even sex to getting the love you want. This author really works her magic with this well written story line and oh my god... what a cast of characters. that gives the reader such a good detailed story for the readers. This was truly John and Christine's wonderful sweet romance story that once you start reading this novel one will find it hard to put down until the end as it will leave you with a warmed heart having read such a holiday Christmas story.

The Christmas Catch John Steadman is a college professor in a little town near Burlington, VT. He had helped tow Christine and her son Tyler out of the snowdrift along with his dog Mason. They lived in Chicago but were house sitting for Helen, her boss and best friend. Christine White had lost her husband Dan in the war. She's an artist, graphic doing designs for a card company. They do meet up again in town, shopping for groceries. John talks to his dog Mason and assures him he will ask her out. They went to the same college in NC. Helen told Christine to check him out online and ask him out... Love the part where there is no TV and they have to play the old fashioned way, with puzzles, Lincoln logs, and books. Over cocoa in town at the children's center she tells John of her dreams about work and they also have agreed to go sledding... The story also follows Helan and her love interests. I received this book from the author as a gift in exchange for my honest review.
