One Christmas Eve

By Robin Patchen

Blake Carmichael has made mistakes in his life, but he’s a new person now and his number one priority is to reconcile with his son. For Blake, starting anew with Eli would mean his Christmas wish coming true. But the going is rough and late one night, just before their first Christmas together, Eli sneaks out of the house.

Desperate to find his son, Blake discovers Eli’s girlfriend is also missing. He enlists the help of Kelsey’s pretty aunt Tallia Waters. Tallia and Blake attend the same church, and though he’s wanted to ask her out, Blake has determined not to pursue a relationship until he’s fixed the one with his son.

Drawn together by their desperation, Tallia and Blake travel the dark streets late at night praying to find the teens before they find trouble – or worse.

Despite the fact that he’s a Hollywood A-Lister, Blake is a man who’s trying to reach out to a rebellious teenage son. Tallia is a woman struggling to make ends meet while following her heart as an artist.

Robin Patchen uses her words to paint these true to life characters in a way that will touch the heart of most readers. Tension and sweet moments intermingle to make this a captivating read, and the hope of a Christmas miracle is the perfect backdrop for this story of redemption.

I enjoyed every page of this book, and I’m eager to see what will come next from this talented author.
