Lily Jordan doesn’t need help from anyone. Sure, she’s pregnant and her golf pro ex just ran off with someone else. To make matters worse, her family’s Christmas tree farm is about to go under. But she doesn’t need to be rescued by another man, especially an athlete.
Newly retired hockey player Noah Wright hopes to find peace for himself and his young daughter out of the limelight and back in his old hometown of Juniper Falls. But he runs into Lily and wants nothing more than to fix her problems.
Lily’s bound and determined to take care of herself, no matter what. But Noah knows they belong together, and this time, he’s playing for keeps.
It’s hard to go wrong with a Christmas-themed story because even if you don’t enjoy the story, the setting is bound to steal your heart, but thankfully that was not the case here. CHRISTMAS ON THIN ICE is heartwarming and sweet romance that reminds us that even the midst of loss, there can be new beginnings.
Lily Jordan isn’t having the best holiday season at all. She lost her parents barely a month earlier and now she just found out that she’s pregnant and has been dumped by her pro-golfer boyfriend for a groupie. Finding out that their family Christmas tree farm is on the verge of going under and only an infusion of cash from an outsider can save it is bad news, but even worse is who their savior is – the man who trampled on her teenage heart and another athlete, no less.
Noah Wright walked away at the height of his hockey career to give his little girl a good life away from the bright lights of Los Angeles and his hometown is the only place that will do. Saving the small business that helped nurture the seeds of his career is no big deal because he wants his daughter to experience the same childhood he did, but the bigger reason is Lily.
Noah has always regretted walking away from Lily ten years ago, but now that he’s back he’ll do anything to win her heart again including some behind-the-scenes manipulation.
This story has so much to enjoy about it – a little girl who needs to find the joy of Christmas again and a father determined to make that happen, as well as a woman disillusioned by so much loss who needs to open her eyes and heart to the good that the holiday season has brought her, all set against the backdrop of a charming and quaint farm exploding with holiday fun.
The only problem I have with this book is that it wasn’t long enough and the author had to squeeze in so many details that needed more room into a few pages.
