About the book:
Wheelchair bound, Amelia Lloyd is embarrassed when the neighbor calls the police to deal with her out-of-control brother. Her old dog tries to protect her but it takes the combined efforts of a handsome police Sergeant and a crabby puppy to put a stop to her sibling’s shenanigans. At first, she hates to be caught in such a situation. But then she accepts an important truth. The big-hearted man, her savior, wouldn’t have come into her life otherwise.

Sergeant Harley Carlton is exhausted from dealing with a car accident where everyone is killed except for the darling cherub who decides she’s his daddy. How can a man with a heart as big as his, correct the precious little orphan? Within a few hours, he gets a call to save a blonde-haired beauty from her crazy brother. So how can a man fall in love twice in one night?

The review --
Okay, this book ranked real low on my Christmassy scale because it gets off to a rather gruesome start; an accident where 2 people are killed. The story gets better as it goes along, but the beginning of it doesn't win me over. There is a rather sad theme that runs through it, although it does have a nice enough ending. But it's not a real Christmassy book, and not one of my faves.
