Goodreads:  An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, couldn't be more excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned. He's sure she'll love it. What's more romantic than Christmas in Paris?Before he can stop her, however, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their faithful dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And then--because disasters strike in threes--an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts.As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods into a winter wonderland, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid's marriage. With the holidays fast approaching, their only hope of keeping their love evergreen depends on turning the page on the past and embracing a new chapter of their future. 

Kritters Thoughts:  The Christiansen series has each book focus on a sibling, the novellas have focused on the parents with the first novella telling the story of how the parents met and this novella about the start of their empty nesting period.  

First, I love the Christiansen series and I would highly recommend starting at the very beginning and enjoying the family from the start.  

This novella (which came out in print form!) is a perfect winter story about how a couple can be deeply affected by an empty home and have to create a new normal.  After reading many books and seeing them in the background as this amazing couple, it was nice to read some real struggle that they have as their lives are transitioning.  

A novella with the Christiansen series that I highly suggest reading before book 4, which will be reviewed later today.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
