Nice, sweet little holiday story. It had a Hallmark movie feel to it.

Robin is passing through northern PA when her car breaks down during a major winter storm. On the brink of freezing to death, a young man, Matt, stops and rescues her. He takes her back to his home. Once she is feeling better, she starts getting to know the family and instantly falls in love with them all. The feeling is mutual and they want her to stay but she feels it's all too sudden.

Stacy Eaton has never written a bad book that I’ve read but this one was so sweet, loving, great, wonderful and can I go on? It had me from the first page where I wanted to know what was going to happen to the very end. And I will be honest and say I cried several times but they were happy tears. I am recommending this to all my romantic loving friends.

It’s a novella about Robin Cove who quit her job and boyfriend heading to Ohio when she gets stuck in a snow storm. She just about freezes to dea

The love for a family

Once again Stacy Aaron's stories never cease to amaze me. Upon starting this book, I had no idea which way it would go. But the right way, no doubt. I mean, I knew it would have romance, and maybe a little suspense, a backstory of some kind, but I wasn't expecting the emotions running through this book. I love how Stacy always seems to capture the unexpected emotions in her books , leaving me feeling what the characters are feeling.

Wonderful Winter Romance

Another great Stacy Eaton story, a standalone, set close to Celebration Township. The characters are great and the storyline involving.

This audiobook was a delightful, touching story about two individuals that meet by chance, never knowing that that meeting would change their lives forever.
Robin Cove thought things were going bad in her life ( no job, a cheating boyfriend, and no home) but when she finds herself not only stranded in a storm but also locked out of her car, she knew she had hit rock bottom. Thankfully she is rescued by a teenager on his way home.

She put New York City in her rear view mirror and headed toward Ohio. On the way she ran into a snow storm. Her old car stopped running. She locked herself out. Freezing she curled up in the wheel hub. A truck stopped and helped her into the truck. By the time she got to Matt's house she was uncon

This was such a great read / listen. Book 1 in Stacy Eaton's Heart of the Family series. The perfect balance of sweet and heat can be found in this romance. Both main characters - Robin and Chris have made some less than desirable choices in past relationships. In fact both are currently working to remove the last in a bad string but when Chris and his family come to Robin's rescue will the instant chemistry and quickly found love be enough to hold them all together?

This is the first book in the series. I'm already hooked because I loved the characters. One of my favorite parts of this book is the relationship between Robin, Geri, and Matt. I loved watching her with the kids especially Geri. It really warmed my heart. Robin's life is turned completely upside down and she has a run of bad luck, but getting stuck at Chris's during a snow storm may be the change in tide for her. I loved the holiday feel to the book and I just lived the title of the book. I can ...more

It wasn’t hard to love Chris, Robin, Matt and Geri. They are all wonderful individuals with great personalities.
Chris and Robin have had their share of heartbreak and have decided to guard their hearts. A series of terrible events and a crazy snow storm bring the two together. Quickly the ice begins to melt as love and compassion warm their hearts and shows them just what a family together would be like.
Matt and Geri are adorable and I loved the bond that forms between them and Robin.

What an absolutely fabulous story this was and I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. Robyn was on her way to start a new life when her car broke down and she was stuck in the snow. Luckily for her a motorist picked her up as she was losing consciousness and took her home. This was Matt, the son of Chris and brother to little Geri. What a wonderful family this was and the dad was totally hot stuff. Fantastic story.

I won this book in a Facebook contest, and this is my honest review.

This is an awesome holiday romance wich will grab one's attention and won't let go until the end, leaving the reader all warm and fuzzy, and happy. If it was me, I'd skip all the too spicy sex scenes - they book is amazing even without all that hotness.

Sometimes fate just steps in and shows you what your life should be and this is exactly what happened to Robin. While Robin was running from her old life, fate stepped in and showed her what her new life could be like. She just had to be brave enough to except it. A wonderful story by Stacy Eaton

3.5 stars.. Good winter read. I enjoyed the story and the characters were fun. There was really nothing that stood out in it for me, it was just a good steady read. It's one of those books that you're happy that you read but probably won't read again. I wish there was more background (or even flashbacks) for Robin and Chris.

Not a bad story - but very predictable. It kind of bothered me how fast the entire story happened. In real life it might not work out so well. But, we read fiction to escape reality. It’s a nice, all round, feel good book. Some parts feeling especially “good”, if you know what I mean. 😉 Though myself, I prefer a lot more foreplay - in AND out of bed.

Upbeat and uplifting

I adored this book as it was so upbeat and uplifting. The characters were well rounded and definitely gelled. The story wasn't too heavy either which is always a plus for a Christmas book.

Watch out for locked car doors.

Robin's car had broken down during a winter snow storm, but luckily she was found before she froze to death. Her rescuers take her into their home and into their lives. A very touching love story with great and charismatic characters.

This book was awesome. Robin & Chris made the story seem like it was you living it. It had a lot of loving & excitement.You were not sure what would happen next. The twist at the end was surprising.

Great book. sweet story. Crisp writing. I am probably a bit biased since I adore this author but I love the characters. Robin and Chris are great characters - realistic, normal, folks I can relate to. They are not on that different plane that some romance novel characters are. I just love the level of detail that the author puts into the story, giving you not only the plot but subplots and details on other characters so you can understand and feel like you are right there with them. .

Not a Christmas book

Semi lame book, with a very over used premise. It was easy to read, had enough sex to gross me out, with a sick child around. This was not a satisfying read.

Pretty good

This was quite enjoyable. I liked the characters, and the dual point of view, which covers some of the same events, worked quite well for me. This was a sweet read.
