CHRISTMAS DIAMONDS (3) by Devon Vaughn Archer: A level-headed interior designer reared by her grandmother when her mother could no longer care for her, Paula Devine is cautious about forming relationships with clients. Chase McCord needs Paula's services to redecorate a room in his home after the death of his wife. Although their initial meeting is accidental and does not go well, both are surprised by the strong feelings that they have for one another and how quickly they develop. But the road to happily ever after has a few bumps, including Paula's ex-boyfriend, who causes Chase to doubt her feelings for him. Archer writes a strong character in Paula, but Chase is too quick to change his opinion of her based on the remarks of a vindictive ex.
