All Matt wants for Christmas is for Charlotte to give it–and him–half a chance. But with the town looking to him to save the hospital and Charlotte itching to get back to New York in time to see the city decked out in lights, Matt doesn’t have much time to make things right. But he’s got faith–after all, miracles happen every day in Christmas

I’ve missed Christmas, Colorado – that happens when a series is enjoyable, engaging and has lots of believable, realistic characters.  So I was very happy to be able to spend a few moments with old friends in this town where everyone not only knows your name but your business, and a brand new couple to add to the list.

Charlotte’s reaction when she caught her husband with his pants down – literally – at last year’s Christmas party might have been a smidge over the top, but such a wonderful surprise should be shared with everyone, right?  Now she’s discovering just how much of a conniving monster he truly is  He’s not only destroyed their marriage singlehandedly but he’s managed to oust her father from his own company… and become her boss, if she wants to keep her job that is.  What was supposed to be one year away from her beloved New York City overseeing some intense cost cutting decisions at a small town hospital where she made no friends whatsoever, Charlotte is discovering that it’s now her job to go back and shut down that hospital.  Her choices aren’t the greatest at the moment thanks to the ex and dear old dad.  But this, even she had to cringe at this.  If she closes down the hospital she’ll get back what she thought she desperately wanted – but at what cost to the people of Christmas, Colorado.

Miracle at Christmas is a bit of a second chance at love, and a whole lot of discovering who exactly you really are.  It’s an excellent addition to the series and gives us one more delightful couple to hope for yearly updates about in the future (I never say never on any good long lasting series).  I enjoyed Matt and Charlotte as a couple, certainly rocky at times, but they worked well together and I found them totally believable.  It’s always fun to catch up with old friends, and Ms Mason gives us that chance in this Christmas season novella.  If you’ve followed the Christmas, Colorado series then you’ll feel right at home, if not then this story will likely invite you to go look up the earlier stories in a really good series.  I’d recommend this one for any reader who enjoys a solid story, a realistic couple and a really feels good story.
