In the second book in the series we delve into the life of Matt. He’s taking over the production of the Christmas Play this year and it’s going to be The Bishop’s Wife. His mom started the play years ago and it’s a way to not only honor her memory but prove he’s not a screw up like his dad says he is. Matt is a deputy in their town but even that can’t change his dad’s opinion of him.

What a welcome! Lacie and Kenzie arrive in Ouray only to be pulled over after she almost hits an elderly woman. Talk about a warm welcome. And to top it all off it’s Matt who pulls her over, the Matt she had a crush on all those years ago until her sister stole him. Now she’s back and out of a job with her niece Kenzie who she is raising after her sister’s death.

Add in a mother who refuses to celebrate Christmas in any way even going so far as to say no to a Christmas tree because she’s still mad about her husband dying all those years ago. Can Lacie give Kenzie a Christmas to remember of happiness or will it be filled with sadness this year.

Matt thinks he’s seen this adorable little girl before. She looks familiar. It’s not until he finds out her birthday and does some math to the last time he saw her mother that he realizes this is HIS little girl. Lacie can’t believe it! Her sister didn’t even put a father on the birth certificate but the DNA test proves Matt is correct.

Now what should Lacie do? Part of her wants to run away before she loses Kenzie while her traitorous heart wants to stay with Matt. And Matt knows he’s in love with Lacie but will love be enough?

Lacie interviews for two jobs. One she can do from Ouray and one that she’d move hours away. Matt can’t be separated from his daughter now that he knows of her. Will job will Lacie choose and will Matt follow or lose her too?
