Meet cute...
Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.
Make merry...
Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself... just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spencer immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?
…and hope for a miracle.
Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime

Chasing Christmas Eve is an amazing book, that made me cry, and I suspect it is one of those stories that will always make me cry, as It's is such a beautiful tale. It is a tale of responsibilities, family, and finding out that your own happiness means as much as everyone else's.

Spencer's book was not one I was lingering for, don't get me wrong, I wanted to read it, but I wasn't dying for it, but silly me, didn't realize just how much the book would mean to me.

Spencer is the wealthy nerd, with the heart of gold and slightly sarcastic side, that we have known and loved through the whole series. Callie is the sweet older sister/mother to rain brothers, and to her own mother. She is the yes girl/ dogs body to everyone and everything, until she breaks, and with the help of mother nature, and Daisy the dog, finds herself in Spencer's arms...and that is where our story begins.

I'm still a relative newbie fan of Jill Shalvis, in fact, the very first book of hers I read, was actually the first book in the Heartbreaker Bay series Sweet Little Lies, and I have read every book in this series since. But being a newbie doesn't stop me from recognizing the amazing talent that this author has; and if you have never read a Jill Shalvis book, I recommend you pick one up immediately.

As I said before, Chasing Christmas Eve is a beautiful story, with fantastic character's, and written by a first class author! Which is why I give it 5 stars!


Colbie Albright stood in the crowded LaGuardia Airport staring up at the flight departure board. Her chest was tight and her throat felt like it was closing in.
Classic anxiety, she told herself. Just breathe right through it.
Not that her body listened to her brain. Her body rarely listened to good sense.
In any case, it was December 1 and people were rushing all around her like chickens without their heads, while she stood still trying to figure out her choice of destination. Her only requirements were warm and tropical. An exotic beach would fit the bill perfectly.
Oooh, I wanna take you…
Great, and now that Beach Boys song was stuck in her head. Doing her best to shake it off, she eyed the board again. So many choices for a twenty-eight-year-old runaway with a packed bag and no regrets.
From inside her purse her phone vibrated and she grimaced. Okay, so there were regrets. Buckets of them that made her suitcase feel like a thousand pounds and sucked the air from her lungs, but she refused to let herself turn tail and go back.
She was doing this.
