Nothing short of a miracle can restore Eliza Hayward’s Christmas cheer. The job she pinned her dreams on has gone up in smoke—literally—and now she’s stuck in an unfamiliar, if breathtaking, small town. Precariously close to being destitute, Eliza needs a helping hand…for her sick young daughter’s sake as well as her own. But she’s not expecting her holiday hero to almost run her down with his car!
Rescuing Eliza is pure instinct for tech genius Aidan Caine. At first, putting the renovation of his lakeside guest lodge in Eliza’s hands assuages his guilt—until he sees how quickly he could fall for her. Having focused solely on his business for years, he never knew that what his life was missing was Eliza and her little girl. But is he willing to risk hoping for a yuletide romance that could lead to forever?

Eliza and her daughter, Maddie arrived at Lake Haven in the hope of starting her new job but only to find out that the hotel where she is supposed to work has burnt down leaving her without a job. She have no idea what she will do now. With all these in her mind, she crossed the road with her daughter and Bang! She was knocked down by Aiden who have problem in controlling his car. He feels terrible for her and have offered her a place to stay and upon knowing her predicament, he offered her a position to manage his house since his family is coming over.
I love the story of Aiden and Eliza. Both of them have their own past burden which they continue to carries and though they realised that their feeling for each other, it takes time for them to make acknowledge it. I love the way Eliza helped him in connecting with his family again especially after the tumor scare that he went thru alone. Being alone for so long despite having a big family, it is a totally new feeling that Aiden needs to tackle on his own especially when it comes to Eliza and Maddie. Overall, it is a great holiday read for me.
