The Deputy’s Holiday Family by Minday Obenhaus: I very much enjoyed The Deputy’s Holiday Family, particularly because of the opportunity to read another story set in beautiful Ouray, Colorado.
Lacie has custody of her young niece, Kenzie, following the passing of Kenzie’s mother. Lacie decides to return to Ouray with Kenzie to visit Lacie’s mom and enjoy a special old fashioned Christmas in the small town. This is complicated by Lacie’s mother’s refusal to allow any Christmas joy in her home due to past heartbreak.
Lacie and Matt, who were the best of friends in high school, encounter each other again after several years. When Matt starts to see features in Kenzie that make him think he might be her father, he starts spending even more time with Lacie and Kenzie. Though his growing attraction to Lacie is also partly responsible. Kenzie and Matt quickly form a special bond. Lacie is faced with the tough decision about whether to stay in Ouray or to look for a new job elsewhere following the holiday.
To find out what happens next for Lacie and Matt, I recommend fellow readers pick up the Deputy’s Holiday Family! It’s definitely a “feel good” read!
