Thirteen years ago, teenagers Simon Shea and Lexie Thornton were set to elope, but Simon died after a night of lovemaking in the woods. Or did he? Suddenly, Simon is standing in front of Lexie, a changed man, insisting she needs protection and that he's here to face down the people that wronged him. Should she believe him, or have the years damaged the sweet boy she loved? And how can she explain to her daughter that the father she never knew is alive? Patricia Rosemoor's excellent plot, throttled-up action and touch of the supernatural make Christmas Delivery (4) an excellent read.
