I totally enjoyed reading Sean and Zoe’s story in Her Christmas Secret by Melissa McClone, book two in the Mountain Rescue series. This is a heartwarming, sweet Christmas romance that starts off as a fake relation with a few extra secrets added in. Sean Hughes loves being unmarried and free of commitments, to the dismay of his family and friends. On the way to test a new snowboard part he created, he gives snowboarder Zoe Flynn a ride to the slopes. While getting to know one another Sean asks Zoe if she would pose as his girlfriend at his family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Zoe agrees as it’s a free meal, she won’t be alone, plus she can spend time with Sean and his cute husky. Besides, it’s not like it would last past the weekend; or at least that’s the plan. What wasn’t planned was Sean getting injured on the slopes, forcing these two to continue pretending to be a couple. Zoe agrees to help take care of Sean not anticipating the attraction that grows between them. While helping Sean recover Zoe finds her true self, discovering the real her, not the person her family and the media thinks she is. Zoe fears that her secret might be exposed if she over stays her welcome and her family discovers where she is. Once Sean learns her secret he needs to decide which persona is the real Zoe. Will the Christmas magic of Hood Hamlet help these two find their happy ever after? Ms. McClone wrote a wonderfully sweet and moving Christmas story that is not to be missed. This story is filled with fun dialogue, endearing and likeable characters and the magic of love. I highly recommend this book to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Zoe is running from her scandalous past and per her politician mother’s instructions staying under of the radar of the press when she meets Sean on the way to snow board on Mount Hood. He offers her a family Thanksgiving if she’ll pretend to be his girlfriend to get his family off his back. Things spiral out of control when he breaks his leg that day, Zoe is left caring for him, and his family thinks it’s more serious than it is. They are forced to spend time together and come to care for each other and think of a future together when Zoe’s hidden past catches up with her. Jake’s family was so funny and sweet with how they cared for him and took Zoe under their wing. I loved hearing about the rest of the OMSAR team and catching up with Jake and Carly from the first book. I’m looking forward to reading Leanne’s romance next.

4.6 ~> Hurt/Comfort, Fake-to-Real Sweet Holiday Romance ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FIVE-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by its Cover > Looking Deeper Third-person Sean thought Denali was the only “Forever Girl” for him, what with his growing company and volunteering as a member of OMSAR. He did not have the time to date or wade through a serious relationship, despite his family’s best efforts. But that may all change when he picks up a young woman on the side of the road. For wealthy socialite, Zoe, being banished and put onto a meager allowance with orders to lay low and stay OUT of the spotlight until election campaigns are over. Easier said than done when impulsiveness seems to come so naturally to her -like buying a lift ticket instead of saving the money for food. When Sean picks her up and ultimately invites her to his family’s Thanksgiving dinner as his fake girlfriend, it’s a win-win for both parties until a serious injury forces their hand. Soon enough, the fakeness begins to feel real. I loved how this story is laid out with the injured and the caretaker roles. I absolutely love animals in books and wished we’d seen more of Denali. Secondary characters were enjoyable and we get to catch up on what’s been happening with Jake and Carly. Predictability was low and the conclusion was perfect. I really liked this one and can’t wait to start the next book! .

Everyone needs help at some point in their life. Zoe needs a place to stay out of the public eye. Sean needs a caregiver due to a snowboarding accident on the mountain. Spending day after day together things begin to spark and sizzle between them. But will Zoe's secret ruin it all? I am really enjoying the Mountain Rescue series. Such great characters live in this town. Looking forward to reading more about them in the next adventure. I was provided an ARC to give an honest review
