InkSlinger PR Blitz: Christmas Catch by Chelsea Cameron

12 NAs of Christmas

CHRISTMAS CATCH by Chelsea M. Cameron


Two years ago, when Ivy Emerson bailed from the tiny fishing village she’d grown up in to go to Columbia, Sawyer McCallister was the only thing she was sad to leave behind, and she still didn’t look back. But when her mother guilts her into coming home for Christmas, she crashes headfirst into Sawyer, who’s also returned after being away.

Now that they’ve both been dragged back to Saltwater, Maine, they might just realize it’s where they belong. Together. 

My Thoughts:

I love reading small town stories for a couple reasons: 1) They remind me that my town isn't that small where everybody knows your business. 2) They usually are fun to read, because everybody knows your business. There is also two types of people that live in the small town: 1) People who want to get out of dodge and never look back. 2) Those who will always stay in the town they grew up in and never dream of leaving.

Ivy is your let's get out of dodge kind of gal. She felt growing up in her small town stymie and she had big plans of leaving and never looking back. However, that's kind of hard when your family is still there. Honestly you can't really cut them off, because they are family. I guess you could, but that's an awfully lonely way to live. Yet, she never thought she would see the guy she left again, but life has a funny way of throwing curve balls. 

Basically, the story is about Ivy reconnecting to her past and seeing that her past is part of her no matter what. Sometimes we want to forget that, but that's just not possible. So, we have past lovers that reunite. Honestly, they probably shouldn't have broken up in the first place, but Ivy was afraid. Funny how being afraid usually plays a part in these like this. It's always great to have reunions around Christmas times. Overall, I thought this was a nice little read center around Christmas. So, if you are looking for a quick little christmas read, you might want to try Christmas Catch.

“Need some help?” This is not happening.
I turn around slowly. The first thing I see is a truck I haven’t seen since high school. The second is the guy I haven’t seen since high school.
“Ivy?” His hair’s a little longer, and his face is a little leaner. He looks . . . older. But his eyes. They’re still the same.
“Sawyer,” I whisper, because I can’t believe it’s him. What the hell is he doing here?
A car drives behind Sawyer, honks, and he waves them on. The two of us are frozen, unable to move. At least I am. He recovers first.
“I have a chain in the back. I can get you out of there.”
“Okay,” I say as he pulls in front of my car and then gets out. He seems taller, but that can’t be. He’s wearing a thick blue Carhartt jacket, torn jeans and work boots. He moves to the back of the truck and gets a chain out, which he hooks to the tow hook on the back of my car and then to his truck. He hasn’t said a word.
“Okay, get in,” he says and I get back in my car. With a minimum of revving of his engine and mine, we get my car out of the ditch. I get out to thank him.
Instead, I say, “What are you doing back here?” He wraps up the chain and doesn’t meet my eyes.
“My dad died,” he says as he tosses the chain in the bed of the truck. “Bye, Ivy.” And as quickly as he appeared, he’s gone, and the only remnant of is being here is the cloud of exhaust from his truck.
I slump against my car and raise my head. Snow is just starting to fall, melting as soon as it hits the pavement.
This goddamn town.
