    Kendra is on her way to CA to spend Christmas with her two younger sisters and their amilies when she ends up in a small town in NV for a tire repair. She and a small boy are kidnapped and left for dead in a snowy desert, but Chase, a rancher stumbles upon them. This was a tender holiday story that really shows the true meaning of Christmas.

    Kendra is 35 and an old maid. On her way to her sister's place for Christmas one of her tires gets a flat and she has to stop is a small town for it to get repaired. While there she sees a little boy standing by himself outside a toy shop window and talks to him for a bit. Just as she is about to take the little boy inside to look for his family, the window in front of them shatters and Kendra protects the little boy with her body. Men with guns grab Kendra and the little boy hostage. After the men loose the police car following them they leave Kendra and the child alone in the frozen desert. Chase is a widower and when his car dies he sees Kendra and the child out in the snow storm. He takes them to his remote cabin so they can get warm and the blizzard snows them in. The next day Chase finds out that the bridge leading to his place is completely destroyed and so Kendra and the child have no choice but to stay where they are until Chase's neighbor sees the red flag Chase raised above his roof on one of the neighbor's sweeps on an airplane. As Kendra and Chase spend time with each other they begin to fall in love with each other. But its not a happily ever after yet. The men who kidnapped Kendra are still out there. They have been stuck in the storm and soon they will come.I like this book because it has everything: romance, adventure, love, suspense, and holiday spirit. I love it.

    This was a great book! I actually got a little bored in the beginning-ish middle. I almost gave up on it in all honesty, but it got better and the middle and end were really good. Oh, but the beginning was really really REALLY preachy. Most of the beginning was either the character thinking/worrying or explaining how much God loves them. Now I'm a religious person and I appreciate it, but it got a bit much and seemed kind of tossed in there with the rest of the story.Anyway sorry that was a lot of complaining and it probably sounds like I didn't like this book, but I promise that it really was quite good. I just tend to get irritated with small things when I read.

    Thirty-five years old and single, Kendra Emerson believes any hope for romance is as far away as the family she’s driving to visit. However, her plans for a peaceful, uneventful holiday change abruptly when she ends up stranded in a small Nevada town. While window-shopping, she hears a sudden crash of glass, and two armed robbers take Kendra and a nearby child hostage.Pretty wordy and repetitious when telling the reader what the main characters are thinking about each other. The basic story/plot is really quite good however.

    Kendra, a single 35 year old women, gets sidetracked in a small town in Nevada with a flat tire. Chase, a widowed rancher, saves Kendra and David, a four year old boy from the little town, from the peril they found themselves in because of others choices. A sweet romance with a bit of adventure. I had read it once before, but didn't remember it until I got going. It is good for an entertaining, quick read.

    This book was touching in a spiritual way, with a sensible amount of realism to it that made it believable. The main characters are appealing, and just darn cute sometimes. Definitely a good read. The only thing that could have made it better was a bit more UN-realistic drama... I was waiting too long for the damsel in distress moment that didn't come like I expected. Otherwise, very sweet and lovable.

    um, i thought i might have read this before, but wasn't really sure, until i went to enter it into my read books. I would give it 4 stars this time, not because i remembered how it ended or anything like that, just at a different place in my life. I did enjoy the way testimonies were everywhere in the story and since i have made a goal of strengthening mine this year it helped encourage that desire.

    I love this book. A friend of mine told me I should read it and I had never heard of this author before and now she is one of my favorites. The girl in the book gets tries to save a boy and ends up getting kidnapped too then escapes and from the "bad guys" and ends up in a snow storm and the main guy saves her.

    After struggling with the last couple of books I went back to to favorite. One of my re-read books. Kendra Emerson, 35, believes that all chance of romance and family have passed her by. She is on her way to spend Christmas with her two married sisters in California when a stop to fix a tire in a small town ends up with her taken hostage in a robbery.

    I thought this was a cute romance novel, a girl from more of a city area gets stuck in more of a country town, meets up with what people call an unattractive young man, a country boy. Such a cute romance novel!

    I loved the adventure in this book. Kendra is such a strong woman and she deserves happiness. It made me see things in myself. I am always going the direction others have wanted for me. I should take her example and see what is out there that I want.One of my favorite love stories.

    Good book. It was not as suspenseful as I thought that it would be but it was good. I enjoyed the interactions with the characters and how it was not all about the love story. It was about the meaning of Christmas and bringing people together.

    This was a pretty good book. It was a little bit excessive in the church stuff, but I liked the story and the characters were great. Someone outside of the church would be lost and confused however.

    Fun, quick read with a good amount of adventure and romance. The romance was a little to perfect and mushy, but isn't that why we read romance novels?

    Another one of my favorite books of hers. I read this one a long time ago and I know for sure I've read it more than three times. I'm all for a good book with lots of suspense.

    I read this book in May, which left me feeling strange since it is set in December. I kept thinking it should be snowing outside.
