It’s the time of year for miracles…

Once upon a time, Lula and Carter were inseparable and Christmas was Lula’s favorite time of the year. But when Lula refused Carter’s proposal one dark December night—unwilling to abandon her hometown to live the dangerous life of a treasure hunter’s wife—the holiday lights went out in her heart. She abandoned all hope of romance and embraced a hermit’s existence, keeping her distance from dangerous men and untamed cowboys.

Until now…

Years of hard knocks have taught Carter that the greatest adventure is the one he once found in Lula’s arms. He’s back in Lonesome Point determined to win back the only woman he’s ever loved, but Lula is just as determined to keep her heart under lock and key. She gives Carter twelve days—and twelve dates—to make his case before she sends him on his way, not counting on the fact that the two of them have grown into people even more meant to be.

It looks like Lula and Carter are on track to Happily Ever After take two, but when Lula’s old fears are reawakened Christmas Eve it will take a holiday miracle to keep them together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another 5++ star read -- Lula's story Review of Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jessie Evans Another 5++ star read -- Lula's story This book is all about Lula, whom we met in previously in Mia's story, as well as Bubba's (with no cliffhanger). Lula is Mia's cousin, and a recipient of her pranks - most notably when Mia pantied her gnomes. I had a feeling we would get around to her story at some point, and boy was I happy to get it. We start out 11 years ago, when Lula and Carter were an item. Carter is an archeologist and treasure hunter and ready to move on to the next big thing. Lula is expecting a ring, thanks to her Aunt blabbing about it, and is devastated when he wants her to leave Lonesome Point and travel with him. When she runs away from him, he leaves town without her. It takes eleven years for him to make it back to her, but will his love be enough to break her out of the walls she has set up around her heart? Can they make it work this time? Sometimes, you have to admit that money isn't as important as the love of a good woman. I am looking forward to reading the next story in this series. Jessie keeps writing amazing stories and we get to reap the rewards. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GNOMES! First thing to come to mind is AWE! The first chapter of this book broke my heart and made me cry. Thank God it perks up from there with a very endearing story of Carter winning back Lula. Add to that a bunch of crazy gnomes and a bit of a Christmas miracle and you have a wonderful book. Excellent Job Jessie, another hit in this series. I'm ready to read Diamonds and Dust now ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Novella! Some people don’t like novellas. I happen to love them. Especially Jessie Evans' novellas. It takes a brilliant writer to get everything you need, want and love into a short book! This book has 2 of my favorite things: it takes place at Christmas and it's a second chance romance! Lula Jo and Carter were in love and planning to spend forever together, but he leaves to follow his career dreams. Years later he comes back to town and wants Lula Jo back. She puts up a good fight, but her body quickly remembers Carter. Her mind is a little slower to believe that he's back for good and wants her. Can she forget the pain and loss she felt when he left? Can she let him in again? He has 12 dates to convince her that he loves her. Can he do it? I love this series and I can't wait for Diamonds and Dust! "Play with me," Cater said, his voice husky. "I'm yours." "Don't ever leave. Stay here forever." "Yes, ma'am," he drawled. "Though we might get some funny looks if we go down to serve customers naked and tangled up."
