A Last Chance Christmas by Vicki Lewis Thompson: Molly Gallagher was all about family, to the point that she was writing her families history. Now the Gallagher family was a bit more complicated than most so she had flown up from Arizona to spend some time getting to know some extended family. It just so happens that she arrived for her Aunt’s 70th birthday and to spend some time with pre Christmas celebrations. Then a newbie showed up and she wasn’t quiet sure what to make of him.
Ben Radcliffe wasn’t exactly the happy family man. In fact he never wanted children, wasn’t even sure he ever wanted to get married. He wanted to be there when Sarah saw her saddle though, the one he put so much time, effort and love into. So here was Ben thrust into this huge family celebration for Sarah’s 70th birthday. Then she walked into his line of sight and everything changed, but the problem was she was exactly opposite, she was all about family.
Molly and Ben were total family opposites but thrown together in the midst of a family reunion would either one of their attitudes change? Or would they realize a future would never be possible? Throw in a snowstorm, a missed flight and another snow storm, oh and a birthday party and Christmas…. Then add a permanent marker and a possible explosion, you never know what is going to happen. Happily ever after? Or a gift of coal?
