Sometimes, it takes a village to create a Montana miracle.
Gage Monroe has given himself until Christmas Day to wrap up the unpleasant bits and pieces of his old life in Paradise, Montana, before starting fresh in much warmer climes. And the last thing a loner like Gage needs is a beautiful, passionate pastor's misguided attempt to draw him into her flock. The people of Paradise exiled Gage a long time ago...with good reason.
Pastor Samantha "Sam" Zabrinski didn't move halfway across the country to accept a position in the little town of Paradise because she lacked gumption. She has no intention of giving up on Gage Monroe--a man with depth and heart he hides from the world. Besides, Gage just may be the Christmas miracle Sam's been praying for...
Memories and miracles.
Gage Monroe discovers going back home to Paradise Montana isn't nearly as bad as he thought it would be. He finds people to be very friendly and generous towards him despite the fact that he did time in prison after an accident that killed two people. He also forms a friendship with the new pastor in town, who just happens to be a gorgeous single mother.
Samantha "Sam" Zabrinski was currently hard at work building her living crèche when Gage walks in her church. Sam can't help but feel attracted to Gage and think he would be perfect playing the role of Joseph if she can tell him into it. As Sam gets to know Gage better, she learns there is so much more to him than meets the eye. Will Sam be able to resist her attraction to Gage?
There is a lot more to this story than just the romance part. It is beautifully written and the characters have a lot of depth to them to them. I enjoyed catching up with characters from previous books too. I hope to see more of some of the newer characters in this book in the future.
