After fleeing her beloved small town five years ago, Julia Bailey is back to spend Christmas with her family. Returning is hard, but keeping the devastating secret about her late husband is even harder.

Single dad and county Sheriff Chase Donovan had been secretly in love with his best friend’s wife for years. But after her traumatic loss he knew Julia needed to get away from Shadow Creek, even though helping her leave was the last thing he wanted to do. Now she’s home and he doesn’t intend to lose her a second time. Chase is going to prove to Julia just how good they can be together this Christmas…and forever.


My Review

I really need to learn to read the blurb for these books. I figured with that title it was going to be a sweet little Christmas themed romance that was angst and drama free. I went in expecting Christmas joy and cookies. I didn’t realise it was part of a series, not that that effected the story in any way just that I like to read things in order. 

So the story had a lot more angst and heartbreak than I expected and I actually cried more times than I care to admit while reading it. But it was still a cute, sweet little story featuring a very sexy single dad and an adorable little girl. It was the semi broken widow that made me heart break as I read it.

Don’t get me wrong Julia was awesome and I really liked her. I especially liked her and Chase together but damn had she been through a lot. 

Overall this was an enjoyable short book that kept me turning the pages until the very end and I would love to catch up on the series to find out what happens to the other characters we have met.

Snowbound with Mr. Wrong

A Snowflake Valley Novel 
by Barbara White Dailee 
Publication Date: November 7, 2016  
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Bliss, Holiday, Romance



Worst. Day. Ever. After Lyssa Barnett’s sister tricks her into reprising her role at Snowflake Valley’s annual children’s party, she doesn’t think anything can be worse than squeezing into her too-small elf costume. Then tall, dark, and way too handsome Nick Tavlock shows up to play Santa…and an unexpected storm leaves them snowbound in the isolated lodge.

The last thing Nick wants is to spend a cozy Christmas Eve with a trio of kids and the woman who dumped him. But as much as Lyssa frustrates him, he can’t stop thinking about her. And soon, he’s fighting very un-Santa-like thoughts of kissing a certain sexy Miss Elf under the mistletoe. As Nick starts to fall for Lyssa all over again, he knows it will take nothing short of a miracle to have Lyssa in his arms on Christmas Day.




From the time she was a toddler, Barbara found herself fascinated by those things her mom called “books.” Once she learned the words between the covers held the magic of storytelling, she wanted to see her words in print so she could weave that magic spell for others.
After much hard work at her craft, she achieved her longtime dream when she began selling romance and mystery fiction to national and regional publications. Not long after, she received “The Call” from Harlequin Books and sold her first two novels. Since then, her books have garnered many positive reviews, appeared on numerous bestseller lists, and won a number of awards.
Originally from the East Coast, award-winning author Barbara White Daille now lives with her husband in the warm, sunny Southwest, where they don’t mind the lizards in their front yard but could do without the scorpions in the bathroom.
Barbara hopes you will enjoy reading her stories and will find your own storytelling magic in them!
