As head of Snow Valley hospital's fundraising effort, Paisley Hackett barely has time to organize the craft show, cookie decorating party, and the annual Christmas Ball. What she doesn't have time for is falling in love with Clay Jett, the incredibly handsome bass player who sweeps into town. She's been burned by a tourist romance before, so with everything going on, Paisley will have to work overtime to protect her heart from Clay and his swoon-worthy ballads.

My two-bits:

This was a good story to end this Christmas collection. It included a few characters from the previously read novellas which was a treat.

Holiday events in town are backdrops for different parts of the story including a carnival and Christmas Ball.

The fun twist with this story is the element of music and small rock band musicians.

The romance was a sweet one that is based on friendship from the past.

Overall, I liked reading this set of novellas. I got a sense of Snow Valley and the holiday festivities that occur there. It seems like a nice warm and fuzzy kind of town to visit someday.
