A little mix-up…

Could make her Christmas wonderful!

Natalie Weiss is mortified. After mistaking handsome Tanner Rockford for his cousin, she’s followed him to rural Alaska. Now she’s stranded—until Tanner invites her to spend Christmas with his family in their rustic, cozy cabin. But in this idyllic winter wonderland, Natalie discovers the family she’s never had…and the love she never knew she needed. But what happens when they all discover why she’s really there?

**My thoughts**
I've read a couple of Beth Carpenters other books in this series and loved them, so I knew I needed to read this one.  And I was not disappointed. There is something about the mystique of Alaska. Throw in a Christmas holiday and you have a recipe for magic and romance.

I admit that I had to laugh about Natalie charging off to track down the father of her best friend's baby. It seemed completely ridiculous, and yet I can see someone doing this. And it turns into a very unique meet cute kind of situation when she encounters Tanner and ends up meeting his family.

Natalie has been badly hurt in the past and does not trust anyone. So I understand her hesitation in acknowledging her feelings for Tanner and his family. (And can I just say how much I love his family? I want them to be my family!) 

Tanner also has some of his own issues that he needs to work through. He has a hard time accepting when people make their own decisions in spite of him feeling like his advice is the correct advice. (Don't we all have someone like that in our lives?) But the two of them seem to complement each other well. And you just hope that the magic of the holiday can help them find their way to each other and triumph over all.

This story really did give me a magical feeling while I was reading it, especially during the Christmas holiday. It's been a while since I truly felt that kind of magic in a holiday romance. It makes me want to reread this and to revisit the rest of the series, especially to catch up on any that I have missed!

P.S. calling Hallmark, this needs to be made into a holiday movie! Just sayin'.

Thank you to Prism Book Tours and the author for fulfilling my review request. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
