Review of Merry Christmas, Baby: A Lucky Harbor short story

Merry Christmas, Baby: A Lucky Harbor short story

Merry Christmas, Baby is a contemporary romance short story by Jill Shalvis. This book is part of the Lucky Harbor series.

SEASON’S KISSES . . . Wild child Chloe Thompson can’t believe how much things have changed. She still can’t get enough of her sexy husband Sawyer, but he seems to prefer working to impending fatherhood. So tonight, a very pregnant Chloe is escaping her troubles at the town Christmas party.

Sheriff Sawyer Thompson hopes surprising Chloe at the party will give him a chance to set things right. But as the snow begins to fall and the wind rages, he wonders whether he can make it back in time. While mother nature conspires to keep Sawyer and Chloe apart, an unexpected arrival will require them to kiss and make up . . . and ring in the happiest holiday Lucky Harbor has ever seen.

This is a short story that picks up about 5 years where the third book in the series left off. Chloe is now married to Sawyer and is very pregnant and happily in love. In case you forgot, Chloe is the youngest of the three sisters that we met in the first three books in the Lucky Harbor series.

Only life isn’t exactly perfect. Her husband is always busy working and Chloe is frustrated that he’d rather work than prepare for the arrival of their baby.

This is what makes me really like this couple … they have real issues. It’s not just happily ever after, all the time. They, like everyone else in this world, have problems that they need to work through to have their happily ever after.

Sure the story is a little sappy and predictable, but honestly, it’s still a great read with a wonderfully merry Christmas and a happy holiday ending.

If you love holiday love stories like I do, or you are reading the Lucky Harbor series, this is one book you’ll want to pick up.
