Goodreads:  It’s Christmastime in Twilight, TX. The lights are twinkling, carols are being sung, and the cookies are baking. And this year, best friends Joel and Jana discover a shocking surprise: as they are organizing the living Nativity, they find a sweet little baby in the manger with a note saying the mother will return...soon.

Jana tucks the infant into her arms, and she and Joel make the impulsive decision to take the baby home. Jana is spontaneous, Joel is a planner, but they agree that it’s better to care for this precious bundle for the holidays, in hopes that the mother really will come back by New Year’s.

As the days pass, the pair begins to fall in love with the child and they’re also forced to face facts: their relationship goes far deeper than friendship. As the spirit of Christmas—and the magic of Twilight, TX—takes over, this unlikely couple must open up to the feelings they’ve been hiding from each other all along.

Kritters Thoughts:  The 12th book in a series and with most romance series you can hop in and out as each book centers on one couple and their story and while there are other couples and their progressions in other books, it is easy to dip in and out.  This was the first book I read in this series and while I was lost about the character back stories on the surrounding characters, I felt as though I knew all I needed to know or learned it in the book about Jana and Joel.  

While cleaning up the local nativity scene, this pair come across an abandoned baby with a note that the mother will return, but needs to get some things together and she chose to leave the baby as they seemed like a good pair that could take care of her baby.  This couple isn't a true couple as they are friends and co workers, but maybe through the bonding experience of caring for a newborn some feelings could develop!

As with all romance books the journey is the reason for reading!  I enjoyed the ups and downs of this book, they seemed natural and even the kink at the very end seemed to work with the story.  While there was some repetitiveness to the conversations that the characters had, it was a great read to curl up with as the holiday season approaches.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
