About Miracle Creek Christmas
When Riley Madigan moves to the sleepy mountain town of Miracle Creek, she hopes her new job as a high school art teacher will help her mend her recently broken heart. A little peace and quiet would be a gift this Christmas season. The last thing on her mind is love.
Former firefighter Mark Rivers has spent the last year recovering from burns sustained during a rescue operation. He’s been trying to piece his life back together but still struggles both emotionally and psychologically. When he meets Riley, he finally sees something that might bring some light back into his life.
When Mark asks Riley to work on a special nativity project, he finds himself falling for her. Riley doesn’t seem bothered by his scars, but is her affection for him real, or is this just another act of charity? One thing’s for certain, in a small town that views Mark as a fragile hero, it’s hard to pursue a relationship without everyone in his business. And although Riley has sincere feelings for Mark, is she ready to risk her heart?
Broken hearts and lives are mended as the town of Miracle Creek comes together to celebrate a Christmas to remember.
Do you need a little Christmas right now? This book brought me that in September, right when I needed it.
Who doesn’t love a meet cute that includes being threatened with a baseball bat? This one just felt like a Hallmark movie. The reader knows that things are going to turn out just right. And that’s perfect. I love that kind of book.
I loved the main characters. Mark in particular. He’s lost a lot, including time. And even some social skills. I loved that he was just a little bit bumbling in the way he acted around others, especially Riley. Thus the baseball bat.
Riley lives on her own. She’s an art teacher. And she hates Christmas. In Miracle Creek, that’s not really a good thing. But Mark asks for a favor. And things start to shift for Riley.
There are so many fun characters in this one. I loved the townspeople, Riley’s co-workers, Mark’s friends and family. The whole cast of characters are great.
If you’re a fan of Hallmark movies, you’ll love this one! It’s such a great Christmas romance.
I was sent a copy of Miracle Creek Christmas as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
