My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s weird going back with Jack and Ethan to see their first Christmas together after the story had moved on in time at the end of book one.
But it’s also a really sweet insight into how they made their long distance relationship work after Ethan got banished to Iowa.
There’s also a nice little side plot with an investigation into counterfeiting which takes a sideways turn into an FBI murder case while Ethan deals with his local chief not wanting him there.
Their actual Christmas together is seriously sweet and emotionally satisfying.
