Great storyline; Quick reading with interest on-going...Earl Hughes
From the back cover:
'TIS THE SEASON......FOR WISHES TO COME TRUE!'
After learning to read and cipher (with the help of her dear friends at the Luminary Society) and saving up some money, Josie Turner is ready to start a new life. But when she ends up on the wrong side of the law through no fault of her own, she finds herself seeking comfort and protection with the sheriff! Lawman Mitch Hughes holds Josie's fate in his hands, yet it isn't long before his kind and gentle ways have captured her heart as well.
For years, honor kept Mitch from admitting how much he yearned for Josie. Even as a widow, she should be beyond his reach. She is more than his responsibility, she's his prisoner. To get them out of this fix, and see justice done in the process, they'll need a little faith, a lot of love...and a Christmas miracle...
