BIG SKY CHRISTMAS
Thack Lane has his hands full. For the past seven years, he's been struggling to move on from his wife's tragic death and raise a daughter all by his lonesome. He doesn't have time for himself, much less a cheerful new neighbor with a smile that can light up the ranch.
Christmas spirit? Bah, humbug.
With Christmas right around the corner, Summer Shaw is searching for somewhere to belong. When her neighbor's young daughter takes a shine to her, she is thrilled. But Thack is something else altogether. He's got walls around his heart that no amount of holiday wishes can scale. Yet as joy comes creeping back to the lonely homestead, Summer and Thack may just find their happily ever after before the last of the Christmas miracles are through...

In this tender Christmas-themed contemporary western, third in the Big Sky Cowboys series (after Outlaw Cowboy), a little girl inadvertently matchmakes two reluctant lovers. Summer Shaw is 23 and living at her fathers Montana ranch again after a period of estrangement from her family. One day seven-year-old Kate Lane shows up at her door, followed soon after by her protective and ruggedly handsome rancher father, 28-year-old Thackery Lane. Though Summer and Thack feel immediate disdain for each other, they also feel a growing attraction. The two are brought together repeatedly by adorable Kates antics, her admiration for Summer, and the magic of Christmas. Helms credible dialogue and deft, deliberate pacing effectively develop the plot, the characters, and their relationship. The building romantic aspect of this story would be alluring enough on its own, but Helm adds bonus elements of mystery and suspense as Summer reveals why she left and returned to Montana, making for a delightfully intriguing and enticing story.
