The Christmas Challenge by Sinclair Jayne

Prodigal daughter, infamous flirt and fiery-haired champion barrel racer Tucker McTavish blazes back home to Marietta with both a secret, and a personal challenge. She will keep a low profile at her twin sister's Christmas wedding. Which means no whiskey. No kissing. No scandals. No fun. What she needs is a miracle, so it's too bad when she visits the legendary Miracle Lake to plead for inner strength: a tall, dark, and handsome bad boy is waiting with a challenge of his own.

Extreme sports guide Laird Hunter doesn't do boring. And he thought he didn't have secrets. He thrives in carving his own trail through tight and dangerous spots, but when he finds out his entire life has been built on a lie, he heads to Marietta for answers. But when he meets the redhead with the killer smile, laughing eyes and body with more curves than a mountain road, he finds himself asking a whole new set of questions.

Will these two daredevils – with more than a few secrets between them – find the one person from whom they don't need to hide ?

Tucker McTavish comes home to Marietta Montana to help her sister with her wedding and win back her trust. First stop is Miracle Lake with a promise to not take away from her sisters wedding. Laird Hunter has come to town looking for his family after finding out he was adopted. When he sees Tucker at Miracle Lake he find himself wanting to trust her from the start but with a bad history with women he tries to deny it. Will one month of sharing a small apartment and working as a chef on her family's ranch give them to peace they are looking for? I really liked this book. I fell in love with Tucker's wit and bluntness as well as Laird's sweet side. All in all its one of my favorite books recently.

"The Christmas Challenge" by Sinclair Jayne is book number three in the "Wilder Brothers" series. This is Tucker McTavish and Laird Hunter's story. This story was really hard for me. I just didn't like Tucker. She is just a selfish person. FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was an interesting story. Tucker is back in Marietta and trying to behave and repair her relationship with her twin sister. Laird is in town searching for answers about himself. I loved both of these characters and how well they got along. I really liked how Laird and Tucker seemed to connect right away, even if they didn't fully realize it. They were so comfortable together from the beginning. This was a great story and I really enjoyed it.

In the previous book, Want Me, Cowboy, Tucker came across as annoying and someone who didn't care about anyone but herself. And the way she hurt her sister Tanner by coming on to her boyfriend Luke was not right at all. But the carefree Tucker is working on redeeming herself in this book when she comes home to help Tanner prepare for her wedding. She even vows to the month of celibacy in order to keep from causing any scandals while she is in town. Laird was a character that I instantly felt drawn to. He had been hurt by a girlfriend and recently lost the woman who he thought was his mother. On his mother's death bed, she confessed to Laird that he was adopted and that he possibly had a twin. He learned that he was born in Marietta and so he was there seeking answers about his birth and hopefully find his twin. He is also searching for a place to put down roots and prove that he is not the man that his ex thought he was. Tucker and Laird meet while skating on Miracle Lake and form a friendship which leads them to challenge each other in their goals, the reasons they are in Marietta. But when they start sharing the small apartment at Triple T Ranch, things change quickly and they find themselves fighting the urge to just hop in bed together. They realize they need to stay focused on their goals before anything else can happen. It will be tough, but if they make it through the month, they can give into their desires. Tucker and Laird are as different as night and day. Tucker is outspoken and does as she wishes where Laird is more laid back and go with the flow type of guy. Typically I would have thought their personalities would have clashed, but the author did a good job of making their differences work. Their backgrounds and the writing made this a memorable book for me.

Rating: 3.5/5 My Review: This is another amazing festive read from the authors who write about events in the community around the town of Marietta in Montana. In this story Tucker McTavish is returning home for her twin sister’s wedding. The problem is, she’s not been home for a decade and the man her sister is marrying is her ex, the man she deliberately split up with because she was worried about how much she loved him. She’s returning to support her sister. There are other reasons she’s worried, most are secrets still to be revealed (so no, I’m not going to tell you them, you need to read the book yourself to find out!). Wanting a miracle to help her face everyone and to help her resist drinking or flirting with any men until after the wedding, she visits Miracle Lake, hoping her wish for help will be answered there. When she gets there, candles illuminate the ice and someone else is there skating. The skater is Laird Hunter. Laird is going to visit Marietta to seek answers after discovering he was adopted and other information about his birth family. He wants to know more about them, if possible to connect with them. However, he’s not sure if he actually has the courage to do this. When feisty, flirty, red-headed Tucker invades his solitude, their attraction is mutual but she’s determined to resist and he’s determined to help her. As their paths continue to cross, will they be able to continue to resist temptation or will they open up their lives and their hearts to each other, giving love a chance? I find these intertwining books great to escape into. The back story to this is a more complex one than usual and there are so many secrets being kept by so many different people. I did enjoy reading it but also found some of my reactions to it were confusing - for example, I couldn’t decide whether Tucker was an extremely selfish young lady or one who really didn’t believe anyone could truly love her. Her actions, reactions and behaviours seem to centre around her need for forgiveness for how these have impacted on others, especially on the life of her twin. This is a story of interlocking families with so many secrets to be unravelled to enable all of them to move on to achieve their own happy ending.It is a complicated jigsaw puzzle, with so many clues that it sometimes seems amazing that it takes so long for the conclusion to be reached! It is a story of betrayal by people who should have been more caring, deception, double dealing, drama and, of course, romance as well as exorcising guilt, seeking redemption and finding just what being part of a supportive family really means. I requested and received an ARC of this novel via NetGalley.

This one isn't a favorite of mine but the story is well written and the characters are intriguing even if somewhat annoying in the case of Tucker. I really liked Laird but I never really understood his attraction to Tucker. Tucker has lived most her life not really caring who she hurt with her impulsive acts. And she's hurt plenty, especially her twin sister. And now her sister is getting ready to marry Tucker's ex boyfriend. Karma?? Seems all these characters are just a bit twisted. And the ending of this book....really??

Tucker is the adventurous twin. Her choices have been risky and shock worthy to many but the thrill of the unknown for her outweighed the people she hurt. Now older and wiser from the life experience under her belt, the adrenaline rush of excitement has become the reflective voice of regret. The Christmas Challenge had it's share of growing pains, but it also learned from them. That is the takeaway from Tucker and Laird's journey. It takes more strength to face down fears than it does to run away from the pain of regret. To forgive and be forgiven was the ultimate reward in this story of redemption.

Wanting Christmas magic and hoping to make it happen brought Tucker and Laird together on a Montana pond one fateful night. Both wanted and hoped and worked hard to fulfill the challenges they set for themselves at the beginning of the book and by the end they had achieved all and even more than they had imagined when first they set out on their month-long journeys. What joy it was to read this story! I adored Tucker’s unapologetic acceptance of herself even though for one month she hoped to rein herself in a bit while reconnecting with her twin sister. I loved Laird’s strengths that included but were not limited to his amazing cooking skills, physical abilities and his willingness to listen nonjudgmentally while helping Tucker achieve her goals. Tucker and Laird together brought out the best in one another – and their love story was one I could not put down. I have not read previous books in this series and did not need to - this book was a standalone and standout - in my opinion. Thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC – this is my honest review.
