The Heart of Christmas by Brenda Novak (Whiskey Creek #7)
Just call her Christmas Eve…
Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn't have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages, and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised, suddenly seem…confining.
Eve's worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband—until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve's definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve's happily ever after—just when it finally seems within reach. And just when she's counting on the best Christmas of her life!

My review: The Heart of Christmas by Brenda Novak (Whiskey Creek #7)
I like Whiskey Creek stories. Their is a big group of high school friends that still meet for coffee every Friday for those in Whiskey Creek. Their group is growing bigger with each person that gets married.
Eve Harmon seems most of her friends have gotten married lately. She has wanted to get married and have a family. So when things came up and she was alone for her 35th birthday she went to the local bar and got drunk. She wakes up and their is guy in her bed. She is not sure she remembers his name.
Jared does not want to tell her his name and he says that one night is all it can be. That their is not a future for them. He is on the run.
It gets around that she brought a guy home from the bar by Noel telling everyone that she dropped the two off at her house.
Eve and Jared come face to face sooner they expected. They can not stay away from each other. So agree to three weeks together and that's all.
Eve's friends keep getting in her way because they care and notice that Brent is hiding a lot.
Their is lot of drama, small town life, danger, and a lot of sex scenes. I could do without the love scenes and did skim over them. I like to see all the familiar friends and see their story lines continue.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin. I agreed to give honest review of it in exchange.
