Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.
Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself... just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spence immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?
…and hope for a miracle.
Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.
Colbie Albright needs a break because she feels overcome with the pressure of taking care of her family and the upcoming success of her book that being turned into a movie. She allows herself three weeks to relax and ends up in San Francisco where she meets Spencer. Spencer Baldwin is successful in his own right but not ready to share who he is or make any commitments. But Colbie fascinates him to the point of distracting him from an important project that he sets aside his doubts to show her the town.
Chasing Christmas Eve was a lovely romance that I read in one sitting. The characters are fun to read about and the writing is tight. Two characters, in particular, Elle and Caleb had me laughing out loud. Love books like this.
This is my first time reading anything by Jill Shalvis and I can’t wait to read more book written by her. I recommended this book!
