An unparalleled Christmas! Lynn Mckinney Russell had a lot on her plate. Two new stepdaughters-one at the rebellious adolescent stage-a new baby on the way, a trainer who'd been mistreating her beloved horse, Lightning, and one new husband, whose overprotectiveness was driving her wild! Still Lynn was determined to make the best Christmas ever-till a series of harrowing "accidents" threatened to turn the festive season upside down. Lynn's lifelong cocoon of security disppeared with the cool Texas wind, and Christmas became an experience no Russell or McKinney was ever likely to forget!
