To have and to hold from this day forward 

Wedding bells are ringing in the charming town of Christmas, but not for Vivian Westfield. She's just had her heart trampled under the cowboy boots of Chance McBride and lost her dream job at a big-city newspaper. But when she returns for a wedding, she stumbles on a story that could resurrect her career. First, though, she'll have to deal with the handsome man standing in her way . . . and a still-burning flame that's too hot to ignore.

Chance recognizes trouble when he sees it. He just didn't expect to find it in the first-class cabin on the flight home for his father's wedding. Yet there she is, as gorgeous as ever. Vivi dared Chance to want things he knew he could never have. It's why he left her. But Christmas's meddling matchmakers have them firmly in their sights. So if they want to survive the next week, they'll have to play the part of an adoring couple-an irresistible charade that may give them a second chance at the real thing . . .

So to begin with, this is not a Christmas romance, despite the title. This book is centered around a small town of Christmas, Colorado.
Viv’s career as a serious journalist tanked after a confidential informant gave her bad information, it was lucky she didn’t go to jail. Luckily she fired, just moved to the Ask Hilda column. But surprisingly she has been doing well at the column, even though she is the most unqualified. But now she is winging her was to Christmas, Colorado when her best friends had moved to and fell in love. But upon arriving on the plane, she has to sit next to the one person she doesn’t want to see again, the one who has broken her heart…Chance McBride.
As soon as Chance sees Viv on the airplane, it makes him wish for the things he can’t have and it leaves a pain in his heart. But after losing his wife and unborn child in a freak car accident he doesn’t feel like he can ever have that again.
But good and bad forces around Christmas are trying to change that, and it places Viv in a life threatening predicament and will Chance stay around after its all over or will he revert back into his shell.
So I was a little unsure about how I would like this book, I honestly don’t know what was giving me reservations, but I have to say that I was blown away by simply how great this book was. It kept me gripped all the way though. My only regret is that I hadn’t read the previous books so I could get a better feel for the characters.
I found the writing smooth and simply more-ish. The characters were lifelike, but I will say I am not sure I would read this as a stand-alone. Overall it was a fantastic read and one which inspires me to go back, and read all the books from the beginning.
Wedding Bells in Christmas earns 9 out of 10 from me.
