It’s the season for giving…and starting over?

A reindeer farm without Santa wouldn’t be Christmas in Marissa Gray’s Alaskan hometown. Luckily Chris Allen’s there to pinch-hit, although for Marissa, seeing her ex-fiancé again brings back memories of what might have been.

Ten years after their breakup, the feelings between the wildlife biologist and blue-eyed fisherman are stronger than ever. Only now there’s a foster kid in the mix, as well as the shocking crime that cost Marissa her job and her family’s security. She and Chris need to find their way to a meeting of minds and hearts to make this truly a season for second chances…


An endearing Christmas romance! With the second book in her Northern Lights series, Beth Carpenter delights us again with a touching story showcasing a second chance reunion as well as the loving qualities of a close-knit family. The characters are rich with strife and turmoil and are super easy to connect with. We watch love re-develop between these lost loves and hope they can believe long enough this Christmas season for magic to happen!

Wildlife biologist Marissa Gray hasn’t been home to Alaska for a long time and after just losing her job, she decides it’s a good time to check in with her family. She finds things not running as smoothly as she would have expected for Christmastime on their reindeer farm. Struggling to get through the holiday season, she should be happy when help falls into her lap … but given the fact that it’s coming from her ex-fiance, she’d give just about anything to be able to say no!

Fisherman Chris Allen never quite got over Marissa walking out on him, and seeing her again brings it all back. A decade has passed since they went their separate ways, but it feels like just yesterday that she was his. Will their past take them for a ride down memory lane or will it all just fester up and make them realize why they couldn’t make it work in the first place?
