    Emotion packed

    It took me just over a day to get thru this book and I enjoyed it every step of the way. It's emotion-packed as Julia has to deal with her past and decide if she's ready to take the chance on moving forward. She's afraid, for obvious reasons, but has to realize that you can't really live life in fear. Back in her old town, face-to-face with friends and family, has her taking stock but also brings some surprises in the super-fine form of the town's hunky sheriff. Chase is just about perfect. He's sexy and strong, but also loving and tender with his daughter and his friends. There's also his amazing patience and insight into handling Julia as she works on her issues. He's had feelings for her for years and isn't going to miss out on his chance to convince her to stay, even if it means they have to battle some old ghosts together. I will say that there were a few continuity issues - timing seemed a little weird, a one sentence mention of Chase's ex that didn't make sense in context, things like that. This was an advance copy so it may have been cleaned up in editing but if not I don't think it will be a big deal for most. This didn't really bother me all that much but I know that it will bug some people so I thought I should at least mention it :) Julia's journey to let go of the past and move toward a satisfying future makes for a touching story, keeping your heart humming until the very end.

    Loved it

    Loved this book!! It's a wonderful small town romance with characters that will grip you by the heart. Julia Bradley has suffered heartache that most people can never imagine. She not only lost her husband in an accident but her young son as well. Unable to stay in the small town they had lived in she fled far and fast.She returns to her hometown after 5 years to spend the holidays with her family. While there she sees Chase Donovan again. Chase has loved Julia for as long as he can remember. When she married his best friend he tried to move even marrying himself but one look at her again and he knows he's only been fooling himself. While in Shadow Creek Julia and Chase spend some time together along with Chase's adorable daughter Maggie. The relationship between father and daughter is wonderful and being with these two may be exactly what Julia's heart needs to heal and move forward. You don't want to miss this incredible heart touching and uplifting story. I highly recommend it.

    Enjoyable read

    This was an easy read that I could not put down until I finished the last page. I really enjoyed the author’s style and the element of suspense. Can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

    Sweet and Emotional Romance

    "Christmas with the Sheriff" by Victoria James is book number one in the "Shadow Creek, Montana" series.  This is  Julia Bailey and Sheriff Chase Donovan's story. 
 It's been five years and Julia is back in Shadow Creek for the holidays.  Julia still has unresolved issues from the past plus a secret about her late husband.   
 Chase has always loved Julia but since she ended up with his best friend had kept quiet about his feelings.  It's been fives since her husband's death and since Chase has seen her.  Chase was determined to not let her get away this time. 
 I could feel the chemistry and attraction between Chase and Julia.  They seem so right for each other.  The problem is Julia doesn't know if she can put herself in the position to be hurt again.  Chase even though he loves Julia his daughter is his top priority.  Will Chase and Julia take a chance on love? 
 Chase and Julia have a lot of emotional baggage to work through in order to find their happily ever after.  This was an emotional love story.  At times you may cry, laugh, or want to knock some sense into Julia and Chase.  I enjoyed this sweet and heartwarming romance. I also loved Chase's daughter, Maggie.
