BOOK REVIEW- It's a Christmas Thing by Janet Dailey *


 The best gifts last a lifetime . . .

Veterinarian J.T. “Rush” Rushford isn’t looking forward to Christmas. It’ll be his first without his beloved four-year-old daughter, Claire. A year ago, Rush’s wife divorced him for another man—then broke his heart further by revealing that Claire was her lover’s child. The final blow was Rush losing all parental rights. Now he’s in Branding Iron, Texas, with his mobile vet practice, just hoping to get through the season—until something like a Christmas miracle happens . . .

Turns out Claire’s parents are going on an extended cruise, leaving Rush to take her for the holidays. It’s bittersweet, knowing that he and Claire will have to part again, maybe forever. . . . Until a smart, not to mention beautiful, lady judge with a pregnant cat and an aging mutt takes a liking to the vet and his little girl and gets involved. With her on their side, and love in their hearts, this Christmas just might be the most joyous of all   AMAZON LINK

This was a charming feel good story that would be good at Christmas of course.  To be honest, it would be good at other times as well.
The people came across as real, the community and close friends did as well.  The emotions were solid and things in the town and the Christmas holiday there were well written.  

Both Rush and Tracy (the lady judge) and even Claire deserved a H.E.A.  Keep watching, it's coming.  The twist towards the end I could see coming but still enjoyed it. 
Epilogues are always welcome and this book had a good one.
