Six months ago, being snowed in at Christmas with the amazing woman he met on R & R at Fort Riley would have been a dream come true, yet now, as a blizzard swirls outside Beth Tate's house, Captain Chris Walker knows he shouldn't be there. Blinded in combat and emotionally scarred, he never wanted Beth to know the man he's become - but stranded by the storm, he had no one else to call.
Hurt and bewildered when Chris abruptly ended his faithful contact from Afghanistan, Beth tried to put him and their whirlwind romance out of her mind and prepared for a quiet holiday alone - until the phone rang. Now that he's here, she's more confused than ever, torn between love for the man she once knew and anger at the one who broke her heart.
A life with Beth was everything Chris wanted, but the wounds of battle are nothing compared to the agony of heartbreak. It will take more than mistletoe, but perhaps this holiday season, Chris will find his way home.

What a pleasant surprise! This book had no reviews but I found the blurb to be interesting so I gave it try. Well it far exceeded my expectations. Even though the story is only three and a half hours long it feels complete. It's a very emotional journey. Chris was hurt in combat and left blind. When he was hurt he broke up with Beth over a two sentence email because he didn't want to let her know about his injuries and have him be a burden to her. But a blizzard forces Chris to ask Beth for help when he is stranded at the airport.
Listening to the story brought tears to my eyes several times. It was very emotional to see how hurt and betrayed Beth was and how difficult it was for her to trust in Chris again. On the other hand Chris was also battling PTSD and his own strong feelings towards Beth. It was such a beautiful story. I was so rooting for them and for a satisfying Happily ever After and the story did not disappoint. The narrator also did an excellent job portraying the emotions of the characters and added extra intensity to the story.
I highly recommend this little gem!!
