CJ St. John never dreamed his epic summer as a smokejumper would end with a harrowing plane crash - one that crushed his pelvis and rendered him nearly an invalid. He wouldn't have made it through the dark night of pain and danger without brave fellow smokejumper Hannah Butcher. In fact, if he were to admit it, he probably fell in love with her that night.
Hannah Butcher had dreamed of being a smokejumper for years - but dreaming and doing are vastly different. During rookie camp, she would have given up if it hadn't been for CJ St. John urging her on. She probably fell in love with him then - but especially when he held her hand and kept her calm during their terrifying survival.
When Hannah discovers that CJ plans on skipping out on their mutual friends' wedding, she knows he's been lying to her about his recovery - and determines to give him the same stubborn encouragement he's given her by forcing him to attend. But when a blizzard detours them, and worse, they're run off the road, they'll have to face their darkest fears to survive. A Christmas story about the miracles that happen when the weather outside becomes frightful.

Loved This So Much!
Overcoming Wounds & Fear
I'd compare it to any of the books by Susan May Warren in the Montana Fire series or the Montana Rescue series.
The narrator did a great job of doing the voices for both men and women in a believable way. I could really relate to these characters as he read the story.
Flashback scene to the night Hannah and CJ were stranded and CJ so wounded. Also, I loved the new epilogue added to the ending!!!!
I read the shorter version of this novella before the extended version came out and I am so glad I purchased the extended version and audiobook. Even the shorter version was great, but this one was just exactly perfect! It rounded out the whole story and the ending, in particular, I liked much more than in the shorter version.
