She wants to create the perfect family Christmas…
Heiress Madeline Love has one last chance to impress her father and organize the perfect Christmas—their last one as a family before her father weds a younger woman and forgets about his only daughter.
Madeline wants to create some much-needed family memories in their historic Montana ranch that she’s always loved. All she needs is the help of one man, Seth Casey, ranch builder to the rich and famous, to give the neglected ranch a quick holiday facelift.
Contractor and architect Seth Casey has dreamed about buying the dilapidated Love property and restoring it to its former glory since he was old enough to swing a hammer. But when he finally gets the long-awaited call, it’s not what he hoped for. The ranch is not for sale and the design the pampered, poor little rich girl requests is all wrong for the historic property.
Can they put their differences aside in order to make this a Christmas to remember?

Must Love Christmas continues the Montana Bachelors & Babies series with a delightful, emotional story that’s perfect for the Christmas season (or any time of the year).
Madeline’s life took an unexpected turn when her father handed over the deed to the family ranch while announcing his impending marriage to a younger woman. She’s convinced that she’ll be left behind when he begins his new life with a new wife. So the idea of bringing the ranch house back to its former glory and holding the family Christmas celebration on the (soon to be) newly, shiny ranch has taken root and won’t be denied. Little did she know that life was about to hand her another surprise in the form of architect Seth – who had his own dreams about one day owning that ranch for his own reasons.
I always enjoy Kelly Hunter’s stories and Must Love Christmas hits just the right notes as we watch a quiet, shy woman see her life change drastically by both her father and the new man in her life. I loved watching her growth through their story, change isn’t always easy but it is so often well worth it in the end. Seth is complicated, with a history swirling around the land and the ranch that Madeline now owns. They will clash over some things, yet they’ll also grow as each begins to see another point of view that brings possibilities into their lives. I enjoyed being back in this world at Christmas time (or any time really). If you love a complicated situation with a simple resolution, watching two unlikely people find love together, and a really good Christmas romance then you’ll want to pick up this story or this entire series right now.
