Hollie Douglas has dreamed of a White Christmas ever since she was a child, but her dream implodes when her fiancé breaks her heart two months before their big day. Convinced by her best friend to go ahead with her planned honeymoon anyway, Hollie doesn't expect to find herself stuck in a snowstorm in rural Canada two days before Christmas.
Jim Bell has been dreading another Christmas without his wife. When one of his orphaned animals goes missing in the middle of a snowstorm, he didn't expect he'd be rescuing a stranded Australian tourist as well. He quickly realizes Hollie is carrying as much emotional baggage as him, and when she accepts his offer to seek shelter at his farm, he wonders if he's doing the right thing.
As Jim helps Hollie fulfil her White Christmas dreams, the winter wonderland and spirit of Christmas work their healing magic on both of them.
3.5 First Snow Stars
Operation White Christmas was a quick, very sweet, and lighthearted read. I enjoyed the plot. Both Jim and Hollie have had some hard times. Jim's a widow, Hollie finds out her fiancé is cheating and they break up. Together Jim and Hollie find peace, healing and happiness. I loved all the snowy Christmas fun. Jim and Hollie were both very sweet characters. I do wish as a reader I would have got to know them better. Because it's a short story it wasn't very in depth. That being said it was a warm and fun little holiday story that got me in a Christmas mood. I was a little disappointed with the ending. I would have liked a epilogue that showed how they ended up. I didn't feel like I got any closure. I enjoyed Nicki Edwards writing style and I will be checking out more of her books. I think I will look into the Escape To The Country series, there are a few books that came before this one.
