After her sister is critically injured in a car accident, Tessa Jamison travels to River Bluff, Texas, with her small nephew to find out if a man mentioned in her sister's diary is the boy's father. When she arrives, she learns that although Cole Lawry isn't little Joey's dad, he did care for her sister and wants to help find the boy's real dad. Betting on Santa (4), by Debra Salonen, has likable characters and a skillfully crafted story.
