Linda Lael Miller brings us Christmas in Mustang Creek

Charlotte Morgan grew up in Mustang Creek, Wyoming, and couldn't wait to escape to the big city. But life in New York isn't as fabulous as she'd like to admit—she's lonely, doing a job she doesn't love and dating too many frogs she meets online. 

There was one potential prince, though—Jaxon Locke, a veterinarian with definite possibilities—but his move to Idaho to fill in at his dad's vet practice ended things just as they were getting interesting. What Charlotte doesn't know is that he misses her, more than he expected… 

Meanwhile, Charlotte's great-aunt Geneva—the woman who raised her—needs to enter an assisted-living facility. So, just before Christmas, Charlotte moves back home. When Jax catches wind of her move back West, he's determined to get to Wyoming and do whatever it takes to win her back. 

Christmas in Mustang Creek is a magical time in a magical place, not least because of a mysterious visitor named Mrs. Klozz. She knows that love is the greatest gift of all, and she's ready to help out Santa by giving these two a push in the right direction!

Charlotte and Jaxon had a relationship previously, but Charlotte believed they wanted different things. She loved the big city and Jaxon longed for the quiet of the country. When Charlotte loses her job, she decides to head home to Mustang Creek, where she grew up with her aunt Geneva. Geneva has early stages dementia and decided it would be best to move to a home. What Charlotte doesn't know is that Jaxon remembers how much she talked about her hometown. When a college buddy asks Jaxon to join his practice, low and behold it is in Mustang Creek. Jaxon can only hope that he runs into Charlotte and makes her realize that she is wrong and they definitely belong together.

A friend of Geneva's has been staying at her house and becomines Mrs Matchmaker, Mrs Klozz asks Jaxon to stay at the house, saying they could use a man around to help them out. Charlotte has no clue how to really take this. Mrs Klozz seems to barrel over everything. But with the way the woman cooks, who can say no?!

Then the idea forms to make Geneva's house into a bed and breakfast. Charlotte knows nothing about running a bed and breakfast but she just can't seem to get the idea out of her head. Not knowing what her future holds keeps her from making a commitment to Jaxon, but Christmas miracles are happening in Mustang Creek...

Fantastic, as usual. Ms Miller has given us a wonderful Christmas read that is, as always, so very feel good. I set the book down and definitely felt lighter.
