New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis brings you a heartwarming tale that could only happen in Lucky Harbor . . .


Wild child Chloe Thompson can't believe how much things have changed. She still can't get enough of her sexy husband Sawyer, but he seems to prefer working to thinking about impending fatherhood. So tonight, a very pregnant Chloe is escaping her troubles at the town Christmas party.

Sheriff Sawyer Thompson hopes surprising Chloe at the party will give him a chance to set things right. But as the snow begins to fall and the wind rages, he wonders whether he can make it back in time. While mother nature conspires to keep Sawyer and Chloe apart, an unexpected arrival will require them to kiss and make up . . . and ring in the happiest holiday Lucky Harbor has ever seen.
My Thoughts
Merry Christmas, Baby is part of the Lucky Harbor series, which I haven’t read. But after diving into this short novella and falling instantly for the characters, I’m all the more eager to pick up this series and meet more of the characters in this cast.

This story is set around Christmas time… obviously… where Chloe Thompson is eight months pregnant with Sawyer’s child. When Sawyer takes an assignment that will keep them apart for a couple of days, Chloe is determined to enjoy the holiday festivities and cast away her gloomy mood. The pregnancy has taken both Chloe and Sawyer by surprise, and their daughter’s arrival is just around the corner leaving them worried about how it will change their lives and if their relationship will be able to survive the unexpected surprise.

I really enjoyed this story because it felt honest and believable when dealing with two people that are scared about being parents, as well as how that will change their relationship. I appreciated not only the honesty in the novel, but also how the main characters coped with their nerves.

Chloe’s sisters were also a nice addition to the storyline. I liked the backdrop of the bed and breakfast, and the tight knit ways of the girls.

Merry Christmas, Baby has it all in one quick punch… Christmas miracles, sentimental moments, and loveable characters to make this a perfect holiday read.
