Down the Chimney: 'Twas the week before Christmas, and Odessa Courtland needs help... If it wasn't enough to be the widowed mother of two rambunctious daughters, she's about to give birth and an outlaw who thinks she's stolen his ill-gotten gains has threatened to kill her. She needs a miracle.When Deputy Deke Ramey is sent to keep tabs on the widow and the outlaw, he ends up stuck in Odessa Courtland's chimney. She claims he's an answered prayer, and her daughters think he's Saint Nicholas. And while Deke is convinced the lovely widow is no thief, he's worried she might just steal his heart.
Not inspirational romance
I loved this one. It had me grinning in places, even reading sections to hubby. Especially when the hero is told off for almost cussing and warned how nasty soap tastes by a child. With a warm snuggly Christmas feeling, cute kids, combined with the right amount of action, and a twist at the end, this story by Ms. Mitchell is another keeper.
Mallary Mitchell fell in love with writing at age ten. Two years later she became hooked on romance while staying with her grandmother who always had a big stash of “happily-ever-afters”. When not writing, she spends time with her children who also share her love of writing.
