Christmas Hideout by Susan Sleeman ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Widowed, single mother, Nicole Dyer and her 3 yr old, Emilee, are on the run from her crazy ex-boyfriend who has been stalking her since their break-up. When she finds a knife stuck in the kitchen counter it sends her running for safety, her ex, Grady is a police officer and she knows from experience that going to the law will do her no good.

Deputy Sheriff Matt McKade finds Nicole and Emilie hiding in one of the cabins on the McKade land after their car breaks down. He offers them protection, taking them to stay up at the main house.

I love how Matt's family welcome Nicole and Emilie, and they all come together to keep them safe. Matt's mother and grandmother especially love having a little one in the house, and Emilie enjoys all of he attention. But her favorite is Matt, and she sits in his lap whenever she can, and quickly has him wrapped around her little finger.

Nicole is grateful to not be alone, and appreciates the McKades, but is also respectful and doesn't want to take advantage of their kindness. Nicole struggles with guilt for getting involved with Grady, her ex, and the McKades provide wise godly counsel.

Matt is dedicated to his job, and is great at what he does. He is there for Nicole, and the more he gets to know her the more he likes her, but he has a plan and is determined to stick to it--a plan that doesn't include a relationship.

Action packed, with well developed characters, I loved how close Matt's family is and how they welcome Nicole and Emilie so readily into their hearts and home. A satisfying read filled with faith, family, and love.
