Spend the holidays in Silver Springs, where the greatest gift of all is the love you never expected.

Up-and-coming TV anchor Emery Bliss can’t imagine anything more humiliating than the sex tape her ex revenge-posted online. That is, until it causes her to lose her job on top of her self-esteem. Seeking solace—and anonymity—in Silver Springs, Emery isn’t looking to get involved with another man any time soon. But when she’s thrown back into contact with Dallas Turner, she sees something that his many detractors have missed.

Being home for the holidays and his adoptive mother’s wedding isn’t where mountain climber Dallas feels most comfortable. Thanks to his troubled childhood, he’d rather be on a rock face alone than trying to connect with people. Emery, however, makes him want to overcome his past…somehow.

Both Emery and Dallas had been planning on a quiet, solitary Christmas, but the sparks between them are lighting a fire strong enough to last—possibly forever.


A happy occasion brings the family back together again! What better way to reconnect with Aiyana and her Silver Springs brood than watching her happily ever after commence over her Christmas wedding to Cal. With book seven in the series Brenda Novak delights with the perfect amount of love, happiness and angst to keep her reader riveted throughout.

Dallas Turner is returning home from his mountain climbing adventures to be with his family for the holidays and his mom’s wedding celebrations. He didn’t expect to reconnect with his high school crush the minute he steps in the door.

Emery Bliss grew up in Silver Springs and though she struck out in the big city of LA in her TV personality career, it’s home she needs when the world starts falling apart around her.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a tight-knit family who always has each other’s back as they slowly find their happily ever after.
