Book Two in The Shadid Sheikh's Series.
Pilot Maria Walken started a charity to deliver Christmas gifts to Syrian refugees. The charity has been struggling and she needs to get this cargo to the refugee camp in time. Sheikh Jarik Shadid needs to get to Lebanon to testify against a former friend. He needs to travel without his bodyguard and his best option is a seat on Maria's cargo plane. After a freak snowstorm grounds them, Jarick and Maria are forced to spend time together. Will it be a Christmas miracle if they get their HEA?
I enjoyed this book more than the first. Maria's character had more depth and character. It was another quick read, but enjoyable. Throughout the novel, Jarik needs to get to Lebanon. It is never fully mentioned what the friend did beyond a financial scheme. Who did he do it to?
