Christmas in Mustang Creek

Linda Lael Miller. HQN, $17.99 trade paper (272p) ISBN 978-0-373-77908-6

Miller (The Marriage Season) liberally sprinkles Christmas magic throughout this companion book to her Brides of Bliss County contemporary series. Charlotte Morgan was born and raised in Mustang Creek, Wyo. She couldn’t wait to leave for the big city. Unfortunately, the big city sent her back, jobless and needing to care for her aunt. The last thing Charlotte expects from her first night home is to be caught in a blizzard and stuck sharing a hotel room with veterinarian Jaxon Locke, her ex. Jax was heading to Mustang Creek with the express hope of running into Charlotte again. With help from mutual friends and the gentle, pointed influence of the mysterious Mrs. Klozz, his gamble may just ensure the sweetest Christmas ever. Humorous happenstance defines this quintessentially warm and cozy slice of small-town life. Agent: Irene Goodman, Irene Goodman Literary Agency. (Oct.)
