Simple Description:
Jake Mallory is about to be executed. It's the Revolutionary war and he is on the American side, it's almost Christmas but the British want to make an example out of him. Suddenly he see's his adopted sister and then rose petals...and then he is almost hit by a car.

Mallory is driving to her parents house, it's current day, when she see's a person just appear in front of her car. She tries to avoid the person but skids on ice and hits him. When she gets out to help him, she thinks he works for one of the many historical tour companies, why else would he be in period costume? However, he seems awed by everything around him and out of place.

She takes him home and tries to play it off that they are old school friends, but her brother, Mom, and eventually her Dad all catch on and believe Jake when he tells them the truth, that he is from the past. Jake needs to get home to his adopted sister and make sure she is ok, however there is the feeling of instant attraction between him and Mallory.

Now what you really want to thoughts:
I enjoyed the book, Heather Graham is one of my comport authors. However, it wasn't my favorite by her and it wasn't my favorite Christmas book. There were times in the story where the bickering between Mallory and her brother annoyed me and there were times when I would get confused for a second. I think she should have used more chapters or something. However, I still really enjoyed it and recommend it to others. I love the ending, perfect ending for the Holiday season.

This looks like a good one but then she typically writes good stuff anyways.
