Source: Publisher ~ Carina Press
Christina Forrester is starting over. After a financial scandal sent her ex-husband to prison, she's left raising her young son without any of the comforts of their old life. Budgets, coupons, lawn care—you name it, she's learning to do it all on her own. Well, almost on her own—she'd be lost without Gail Broughton, the kind widow across the street. But when Gail's son comes home, Christina's vow to never trust a man again is put to the test.
Will Broughton left town because he was tired of being "that poor man" who lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. But years have passed and, with his dad gone and his mom alone, it's time to go home. Only his mother's not alone. She's taken Christina under her wing, and the beautiful and determined single mother awakens something in Will he thought was buried forever.
As Will and Christina are forced to spend more time together, feelings that are more than neighborly grow between them. And with Christmas coming and a child filling both houses with holiday cheer, it becomes nearly impossible not to embrace the joy—and the love—in their lives.
Her Holiday Man by Shannon Stacey is easily one of those romances that I could read over and over and never tire of. Will Broughton and Christina Forrester are both starting over in their lives, after events have put their lives in turmoil.
For five years, Will has been running away from the hurt and pain of losing his wife and unborn child. He left his family and hometown because he couldn’t deal with the sad looks of sympathy everyone gave him. But with his father dying, Will realizes that his mother is alone and doesn’t want her to have to endure the winter and the holidays by herself. So, he packs up his truck and moves back home.
Christina grew up in the world of privilege and money. She never had to do anything on her own, because she always had people to things for her. After her husband is sent to prison for stealing people’s money, Christina finds herself alone with only her son, trying to make it in a new world. Christina and Nathaniel's lives take a turn for the better when Gail Broughton walks into the Quick Stop where Christina works. The two become neighbors and Gail watches Nathaniel after school until Christina gets off of work.
Will is shocked to realize that his mother isn’t sitting at home in her rocker pining away for his father, living a very lonely life. He can’t help to wonder if Christina is taking advantage of his mother but soon comes to realize just how special Christina and Nathaniel truly are.
