Synopsis: After fleeing her beloved small town five years ago, Julia Bailey is back to spend Christmas with her family. Returning is hard, but keeping the devastating secret about her late husband is even harder. Her place isn’t in Big Sky Country any longer…but the more time she spends with the irresistible Sheriff who saved her once before, and his adorable little daughter, the more Julia starts wishing she could let go of the past and start a new life.
Single dad and county Sheriff Chase Donovan had been secretly in love with his best friend’s wife for years. But after her traumatic loss he knew Julia needed to get away from Shadow Creek, even though helping her leave was the last thing he wanted to do. Now she’s home and he doesn’t intend to lose her a second time. Chase is going to prove to Julia just how good they can be together this Christmas…and forever.
Julia left town after a devestating event left her without her husband and child. Since she's been gone, she's found out things about her husband that change how she'd seen him and their life together. After years of being away, she's finally coming back for the holidays to spend with her in-laws and her husband's best friend, who just happens to be the sheriff.
Chase tries hard at being a good dad for his daughter. He's very particular about the people and things he lets in to his life and his daughter's because he doesn't want to see her hurt again. But something about Julia calls to him. He's liked her for a while, and their friendship has changed and grown over the years. But now that she's back in town, he realizes there could be something more there.
Julia doesn't want to ruin anyones memory of her deceased husband, so she's kept in all that she's learned, but when things reach a new level with Chase, she has to know if he had any idea of what went on. Chase is shocked at her revelation, having beleived that his best friend had a solid relationship and that he'd known him. Julia cares a lot about what others think of her, so it is hard for her to give in to taking a chance on love with Chase, but eventually she comes to the realization that she loves both Chase and his daughter.
Christmas with the Sheriff was a beautiful story that took us on an emotinal journey for two people. Julia and Chase had their own struggles to work through to come together, but they had a few pushes from those they love to help them see the way. I loved how this story came together, how the side characters added to the story, giving advice, or just showing love, helping Julia see that she didn't have to give up her future happiness.

Synopsis: Worst. Day. Ever. After Lyssa Barnett’s sister tricks her into reprising her role at Snowflake Valley’s annual children’s party, she doesn’t think anything can be worse than squeezing into her too-small elf costume. Then tall, dark, and way too handsome Nick Tavlock shows up to play Santa…and an unexpected storm leaves them snowbound in the isolated lodge. The last thing Nick wants is to spend a cozy Christmas Eve with a trio of kids and the woman who dumped him. But as much as Lyssa frustrates him, he can’t stop thinking about her. And soon, he’s fighting very un-Santa-like thoughts of kissing a certain sexy Miss Elf under the mistletoe. As Nick starts to fall for Lyssa all over again, he knows it will take nothing short of a miracle to have Lyssa in his arms on Christmas Day.
