Wedding bells are ringing in the charming town of Christmas, but not for Vivian Westfield. She's just had her heart trampled under the cowboy boots of Chance McBride and lost her dream job at a big-city newspaper. But when she returns for a wedding, she stumbles on a story that could resurrect her career. First, though, she'll have to deal with the handsome man standing in her way . . . and a still-burning flame that's too hot to ignore.

Chance recognizes trouble when he sees it. He just didn't expect to find it in the first-class cabin on the flight home for his father's wedding. Yet there she is, as gorgeous as ever. Vivi dared Chance to want things he knew he could never have. It's why he left her. But Christmas's meddling matchmakers have them firmly in their sights. So if they want to survive the next week, they'll have to play the part of an adoring couple-an irresistible charade that may give them a second chance at the real thing . . .

Wedding Bells in Christmas, the fourth book in author Debbie Mason's Christmas, Colorado series, was charming blend of sweet with just a hint of spicy. I adored watching Chance and Vivi fall in forever. Broken after the sudden death of his wife and daughter, Chance McBride never wants to feel what he felt when his world fell apart. If that means letting go of what might be his last chance at love, then so be it. However, he just can't bring himself to let her go. After losing her job and falling hopelessly in love with a man she knows she can't have, Vivi Westfield is left wondering where her life is taking her. One thing is for certain, she's a lovable scaredy-cat that'll jump at her own shadow. I enjoyed Wedding Bells in Christmas. I loved the characters and had fun getting to know all of their kookiness. I loved that is was a clean, fade to black romance with the perfect amount of sexual chemistry to get my imagination churning. The mystery behind Kate's death and the drugstore burglaries wasn't overpowering, but added another layer to the story. One regret I have is that I started the series with this book and it felt as if I was missing a piece of Vivi and Chance's backstory. They knew each other previously and while most of their history is explained throughout Wedding Bells in Christmas, I still felt that there were elements that were not and I wished I knew what had happened. With that said, it didn't have a big impact on how I felt about the story. It was fully my fault and now I want to go back to the first book to see what I missed. Plus I really want to know more about Aunt Nell's books. Overall, Wedding Bells in Christmas was an adorable, quick read that sparked my hidden love of sweet romances.
