Can Miss Christmas find her spirit again?
After a devastating betrayal, Claire Branham packs up the pieces of her life, along with a twenty-million-dollar secret, and moves to Eternity Springs. She opens a specialty shop—Forever Christmas—and, with the help of a surprise romance with the town’s sexy new handyman, Claire’s heart begins to heal. Until her past comes knocking…
Jax Lancaster never questioned the need to abandon his career as a Navy submariner in order to care for his young son in the wake of his ex-wife’s death. Desperate to help with this loss, Jax straps on a tool belt to give Nicholas the one thing he wants: A life in Eternity Springs. What Jax never expected to find a second chance at love with a fascinating woman for whom Christmas has become a business. But when the truth about Claire threatens their newfound happiness, can Jax prove to her that in Eternity Springs, the spirit of Christmas is real. . .and will last a lifetime?
Christmas in Eternity Springs is the twelfth installment in Emily March's acclaimed Eternity Springs series.
Claire's festive season memories are associated with the unhappy chapters of her life. She has opened a shop called 'Forever Christmas' at Eternity Springs, hoping to defeat one thing she is most afraid of - Christmas. Jax had come to town with his son, who suffers from a trauma after his estranged wife's death. On a summer day in July, Claire and Jax meet at the Mineral Springs pool and then began a new chapter of their life. 

Don't know how she does it! Emily March, the New York Times bestseller, has blown me away with yet another amazing story of love, family and second chances. I'm starting to believe that Eternity Springs is magical and a perfect haven for every reader to run into. CHRISTMAS IN ETERNITY SPRINGS has put me in high spirits - not only for Christmas, but also to keep a positive attitude towards life.

I'm so touched by the message of this beautiful, endearing and inspiring story - BELIEVE. The author has become like an angel to me, 'cause throughout the story, I felt she was talking to me through Celeste - an inevitable character in Eternity Springs series. Celeste is Eternity Spring's own angel- an expert at mending hearts and offering words of profound wisdom. Each time I cracked open the book, I l was looking forward to reading her words mostly and noted them down to read again later. Celeste is an amazing character that every reader should befriend.

I liked Claire a lot, a down-to-earth, amiable and lively character: a sparkling personality with so much audacity to challenge the life that mocked at her, many a time. I couldn't be happier when she decided not to dwell on the past and move forward in life. Jax was also charming and his son Nicholas was a sweetheart. I  liked reading how Jax and his boy worked together to recover from Nicholas's trauma, the whole process felt so genuine and true. In fact, the whole story had an authentic touch, devoid of any fluffy dialogues and incidents we usually encounter in the contemporary novels.

Emily March's writing is lucid, simple and evocative; can easily slip into the story and enjoy thoroughly. She has beautifully captured the essence of Christmas in this novel and also has an important message for readers - a message to renew the faith and love in the family, in this festive season.

In a nutshell, CHRISTMAS IN ETERNITY SPRINGS tells a festive, feel-good, endearing tale of belief, hope and love. It's a book that should not be missed! It's a book that you must have in your shelves! Trust me when I say Eternity Springs series  are worthwhile reading :)
