Heavenly Haven by Christine Lindsay
Avalanches happen to other people, not us. Marital problems happen to other people, not us, especially nine days before Christmas. At least that’s what Jack and Shaina Burke thought. Married for ten years, avalanche control expert Jack, and Shaina, only wanted to celebrate their December anniversary in a romantic way, until the shifting snows on the mountain bring havoc tumbling down upon them. Can they find renewed love in a heavenly haven of snow?
Shaina Burke is upset when her husband Jack is called to work--on the day they'd planned to celebrate their anniversary. Angry at him, she shuts the door in his face, and plots to take the two kids on the anniversary trip -- without her husband.
Jack is bothered by the fight, but he has no choice. So off to work he goes. But then a horn honking in an area where an avalanche happened is brought to his attention. Will they find Shaina and the children in time? Will Jack and Shaina be able to fix what's wrong and still have a happy anniversary after all?
HEAVENLY HAVEN is a e-short by Christine Lindsay, part of a the Twelve Days of Christmas collection releasing from different authors. Only 33 pages long, this story will draw you in, making you care for Jack, Shaina, and the children. I wanted things to work out, and for awhile I was really alarmed by Shaina's bad choices.
If you are looking for a short Christmas story, then HEAVENLY HAVEN is one to consider. Sweet, contemporary, and snow.
