On Tour with Prism Book Tours

This Christmas (The North Star Series #1) By Laurie Winter Contemporary Romantic Suspense Paperback & ebook, 240Pages October 20, 2020

‘A beautiful story of loss and new love, set in a snow-capped mountain ski resort town.’

Celia Batista waited a long time for all three of her sons to be together for Christmas. But after one of her identical twins disappears without a trace, Celia must rely on Police Captain Luke Veldkamp for help. Despite Luke’s accusations that her other twin son is involved with organized crime, she falls for the handsome, Stetson wearing cop.

Luke Veldkamp is facing his first Christmas after the loss of his wife, working nonstop to avoid the holidays and his grief. His daughter, who’d moved home to care for her mom before her passing, pushes him to face his pain. Luke pushes back, telling her to return to college and regain her own life. If his own strife isn’t enough, the mission to locate the missing son of his beautiful neighbor grows more personal than any other case.

While Luke and Celia fight to keep their families from falling apart, they find comfort and strength in one another. And when love blooms between their children, Luke and Celia’s own relationship takes root and grows. But Celia is used to living on her own terms, and loving a man who has isolated his heart is a risk too great. Now, Luke must either confront his emotions or face a life without the woman he’s come to love.

Celia Batista is like most moms, no matter now old her son, she is going to take up for him when he is accused of a horrific crime. My heart went out to Celia because I would do the same thing. Her Merry Christmas with her three boys home was turning out to Merry! As the story unfolds, we get a deeper glimpse of the family and why the emotions and feelings and flying high! And then there is Captain Luke thrown in the mix with his beautiful daughter. As Celia and Luke spend more time than usual together, will an attraction grown between them? After all Luke knows he can’t love anyone as much as he loved his wife? Well, if you read this book, “This Christmas” you will find out all of this and so much more.

This is such a fun story, a story that tells of difficulties in families, but love still flows through no matter what. Sometimes I would get so frustrated, especially at Luke and Celia, but it would all iron out and the story would flow on smoothly. If you are looking for a good clean story to read during the Christmas holiday, this is a great choice. For me, I give this story four stars all the way!!
