His Christmas Star by Jean C. Gordon
Connor Donnelly is done with romance.
Five years ago, Natalie Delacroix, the woman he thought he’d spend forever with turned down his proposal and left their small community of Paradox Lake to pursue her dreams. Dreams that didn’t include Connor Donnelly. Since then, Connor has devoted himself to the community. Now pastor of the local Community Church, he’s determined to make the first Christmas pageant he’s directed a success. If only he can avoid the matchmaking of his family and friends who don’t want the handsome bachelor to spend the holidays alone.
Natalie Delacroix is back in Paradox Lake.
The successful broadcasting career she left the mountain town and Connor for hasn’t turned out quite the way she’d expected. This well-needed break that she’d intended to use to rechart her future is disturbed by family and friends pushing her to help the church—and Connor—with the holiday pageant.
With Natalie’s musical talents, long admired by Connor, the couple might just succeed in making it the success he wants. And because working so closely with Natalie stirs up old feelings, Connor starts to hope for a second chance with the one who got away.
As much joy as they’ve found working on the pageant together, Connor worries that Natalie will never be content with small-town life. Natalie knows she’ll have to earn his trust.
Will the best intentions of family and friends backfire, or will Natalie and Connor find their love again under the Christmas Star? Find out in this heartwarming holiday reunion romance.
