It’s beginning to look a lot like love . . .

Spring fever has hit the small town of Christmas, and deputy Jill Flaherty has developed a serious case. The object of her unrequited longing is none other than a former pro hockey player who’s her long-time crush and the most eligible bachelor in town. As her thirtieth birthday nears, Jill’s determined to finally get Sawyer Anderson’s attention . . . and keep it forever.

Everyone in town knows Sawyer is a player on and off the ice. So no one suspects that he’s been yearning to settle down and have a family, to be just as happy as his best friend and his beautiful wife. But when his best friend finds out the bride Sawyer has in mind for his happy ever after is his off-limits baby sister, it might be a hot summer in Christmas in more ways than one . .


I love Debbie Mason books and especially the town of Christmas stories. Happy Ever After in Christmas does not disappoint.  Although a stand-alone book I was delighted to meet characters from previous books and find out where their lives had taken them.

This story concentrates on Jill and Sawyer. Jill is the deputy in town who is vying for the position of Sheriff. Sawyer runs the bar in town and was a hockey player prior to being benched for concussions.

They both have been attracted to each other since childhood but Jill’s brother has always put a ‘Hands Off” in front of Sawyer. Jill has loved Sawyer since she was ten and is devastated to see that he still treats her as a “little sister”.

A one night stand, a subsequent pregnancy, a miscarriage and a threat to Sawyers life all tend to get in the way of happiness for the couple. Throw in Sawyer’s manager that also has the hot‘s for him and you have and exciting, well developed story full of intrigue and passion that kept me reading until it was done.

I know I for one will be on the lookout for other Debbie Mason books which hopefully will include more town of Christmas stories.
