A Christmas Match
The best Christmas possible—that’s what Lavinia Crowne intends to provide before taking her orphaned nieces and nephew home to Philadelphia. But carrying out her plan may be harder than she expects, with their handsome, stubborn uncle, Henry Hawthorn, insisting on raising the children in rough-and-tumble Sutter Creek, California. Lavinia can’t bear to lose her late sister’s children, though, or go against her father’s demand to bring them home.
Henry believes his nieces and nephew need affection and security more than a lavish lifestyle. But as the children conspire to bring their aunt and uncle together, a new vision fills his head—of future Christmases spent with sweet, determined Lavinia and their growing family. Can three little matchmakers, and the spirit of the season, bring the gift of a very happy beginning?

Such an awesome Christmas story that can be enjoyed any time of year and one I would want to read again. What's not to like with 3 precious little matchmakers. Add in the cant put down factor and the inspirational thread and you have a winner.
Lavinia Crowne and Henry Hawthorn meet under a less than ideal situation when they must decide what is best for their nieces and nephew after the death of their parents. Not only are the children dealing with grief, they are too by losing both a sister and brother. Lavinia is instructed by her overbearing & rich father to bring the children to Philadelphia after the Christmas holiday and Henry is their legal guardian determined to keep them in Sutter Creek, CA. These two are at a crossroad with no easy solution, so the question remains, what will happen to the children? Lavinia is one character I can relate to, she's stubborn, determined, tenacious to a fault and goes after what she wants! She believes she has a strong case in being able to obtain guardianship of her sister's children and won't take no for an answer. Henry is just as determined to keep the children in his care and show Lavinia that a family is made up of love and affection more than the things riches can buy. As time goes by, she begins to admire his devotion and gentle nature that brings out the best in eight year old Alex, six year old Marcie and four year old Dot. As for the children, they add their own delightful personalities, fun and a little mischief thrown in the mix! I found this to be a warm & satisfying Christmas themed story full of love, faith, learning the more important things in life and ending in sweet romance to satisfy the heart. * I was provided with a complimentary copy from the author.
