Ever since her ex-boyfriend dumped her on Christmas Eve, the holiday season has been tough for Maya Badger—especially since Lost Harbor, Alaska pulls out all the stops for the holidays. Sure, she could focus on her police work and her father’s recovery from heart surgery. But when her dad’s home healthcare nurse turns out to be her childhood buddy—all grown up and the stuff of her naughtiest fantasies—she may have a solution to her holiday blues. After all, Jay-Jay always was the perfect playmate!
Rune Larsen hasn’t been skinny little Jay-Jay in a long time…not since he and his teen sister were forced to change their names to avoid Cara’s stalker. Taking a job in tiny, remote Lost Harbor seems like the perfect way to stay one step ahead of danger. The fact that his childhood friend is the town police chief is a bonus. Not to mention the fact that Maya has grown into a beautiful bronze goddess. Hell, even her serious cop side is a turn-on…though he’s up for the challenge of bringing some fun back into her life.
In fact, if they can navigate a stalker, a runaway yak, eleventy-billion holiday parties and a criminal investigation into the dark side of Lost Souls Wilderness, Rune just may convince Maya to fall head over heels for the holidays…and beyond.

HEAD OVER HEELS FOR THE HOLIDAYS by Jennifer Bernard
WOW!!! I loved reading Head Over Heels for the Holidays by Jennifer Bernard, book seven in her Lost Harbor, Alaska series. This story has all the feels, intrigue, suspense, and of course love.
Life has not been easy for police chief Maya Badger, especially around the holiday season; Lost Harbor pulls out all the stops in celebrating the holiday season. Maya has been going solo to all the events, especially for the last five years since her ex-boyfriend dumped her on Christmas Eve to marry someone else. She has enough on her plate between her police work and her father’s recovery from heart surgery that she finally asks for some help; a healthcare nurse to work with her dad. Except, the healthcare nurse turns out to be her childhood buddy, Jay-Jay, all grown up, gorgeous, and the stuff her fantasies are made of.
Rune Larsen hasn’t been the skinny little playmate Jay-Jay in a long time, not since he and his teen sister changed their names to escape from Cara’s stalker. Finding a healthcare position in tiny, remote Lost Harbor sounds like the perfect way to be a few steps ahead of the danger dodging their heels; having the police chief be a childhood friend is one more bonus.
Rune is such a goner after seeing Maya, her becoming a bronze goddess; at least in his eyes. Seeing the serious Maya also draws him in and makes him want to bring some fun back into her life. Now all they have to do is navigate a stalker, a runaway yak, thousands of holiday parties and a criminal investigation into the dark side of Lost Souls Wilderness while Rune tries to convince Maya to fall head over heels for him, during the holidays and after.
Ms. Bernard wrote an amazing, emotional, intriguing, suspenseful, and magical story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with suspense, reconnection, magnetic attraction, off the charts chemistry, amusing conversations, and endearing characters, who help Maya and Rune find a forever love, save Cara from a stalker, and solve the mysteries going on around the resort on Lost Souls. I highly recommend Head Over Heels for the Holidays to other readers.
