Synopsis:

A new Christmas novella by bestselling author Ginny Baird...
Book #1 in Ginny's Holiday Brides novella series.

Since the death of her military husband two years ago, single mom Christine White has struggled to get by. By throwing herself into her work as a Chicago copywriter, she's managed to keep food on the table but has gradually lost sight of what really matters, like building a bond with her four-year-old son. When Christine's best friend insists she spend Christmas in Vermont so she can get her life in order, Christine initially resists. Little does she know she's in for a memorable holiday that will reignite her faith and reawaken her heart. 

Bachelor professor John Steadman has given up on finding the right one. Spending time with his friends while keeping up with his job seems satisfying enough. Then one day close to Christmas, a beautiful woman from Chicago nearly runs him off the road during a snowstorm. What's more, she's got a kid in her car. It's only natural that John and his trusty golden retriever want to help drag them out of a ditch and steer them toward their destination. What John doesn't expect is that soon he'll be hoping Christine and her son will be staying in Vermont - for more than just a little while.

Review:

The Christmas Catch was another great Christmas read. I just love all the holiday fun and magic that makes two people fall in love so quickly. Oh this really is one of the most wonderful times of the year. 

Christine has been struggling to support both herself and her son since the death of her husband a few years ago. She hasn't really gotten out and had a life since then, hasn't opened herself up to a new relationship or anything like that. She has been focused on her career and her son, though she hasn't been as close with him as she wishes. 

When her boss needs someone to go to Vermont and housesit for her (the boss had said she would do it, but at the last minute had something else come up) Christine agrees to go. She figures it will be a good chance to bond with her son. There is no TV or anything to distract them. 

While driving to the house she is caught in a snowstorm and almost gets run off the road. Luckily John is the one in the other car and he is so sweet. He does everything he can to help her and her son, with his trusted dog, and I really liked him. John has never had a real serious relationship. He has always been focusing on his career and has been too busy to devote to a family. At first he wants to keep his distance from Christine and her son, but that is easier said than done. There is just something about them that he starts falling for. 

Christine and John were cute together. They have a great holiday, though there are some bumps in the road to happiness. John needs to figure out what he really wants and if he can be that family guy he would need to be to be with Christine. Is she worth it, or should he let her go? It was a fun read and fun of holiday magic.
