When CC Cippolini is offered a temp job driving a custom car across the country, she leaps at the chance to leave Chicago, put her past in the rearview mirror, and make a fresh start. But one car crash and broken cattle fence later, CC ends up at the home of ruggedly handsome rancher Reese Brockbank.

Reese doesn’t hesitate to rescue the reckless woman who has crashed into his life, but when circumstances require him to put CC up in his house for a few days, he vows to remain aloof—a woman already derailed his life once. As CC’s warmth and childlike love of Christmas turn his beautiful but sterile house into a home, however, she wears down his defenses. Still, something in her story doesn’t quite add up, and Reese’s questions soon cause CC to retreat.

The pain of their pasts has brought them to this moment, but will they seize it or put the possibility of love in jeopardy?

Rating: Moderate. Mild kissing; mild sensuality; moderate violence or horror.

    There is a lot of baggage these two main characters have to sort out in their lives. They are both a good influence though and their meeting becomes a catalyst for them both to get themselves in order. As they work through their personal junk, their relationship seems to take one step forward and two backward regularly. So the question is, can they ever get to a point of moving steadily forward?
    (Spoiler: there is a happily ever after ending).

    I loved both CC and Reese. They are good people who just want to help others. And I enjoyed the secondary characters too. Excepting the ones that we weren’t really supposed to like, of course. I loved the ideas for CC’s homemade Christmas decor and would love to personally see what it looked like. And the whole thing with the doe and fawn was so sweet.

    The cover is pretty but looks so cold. Brrrr. With the title, I expected to spend more time on the road but the majority of the story takes place on Reese’s property, which is cross-country from CC’s home.

    This is a sweet romance, but expect a good deal of angst and people trying to figure out their lives.

    No sex, language or violence
