RESCUED BY THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS
Six years ago, a climbing accident at Christmastime took pub manager Carly Bishop's fiance and her brother, and she hasn't been home for the holidays since. But now her brother's widow is remarried and very pregnant, a compelling reason to visit. The trip forces Carly to face brewer Jake Porter and their unresolved feelings. Nothing has really changed between them, but his volunteer work in search and rescue is a big obstacle to their future happiness -- Carly can't handle the risk factor. Melissa McClone's Rescued by the Magic of Christmas (3) has a sound plot and likable characters, but past events are given too much emphasis, and they detract from the romance.
