Having lost her boyfriend, job, and apartment all in the space of a week, Angie has no choice but to leave California and return to her family in New England.
Determined not to let life weigh her down, Angie finds work at the local mall where she worked as a teenager. After an embarrassing run-in with a handsome stranger, Nick, she’s convinced her luck is about to change.
But Nick has secrets of his own… and as the first flakes of snow begin to fall, Angie can’t help but wonder if she’ll ever find love.
This book was such a perfect little holiday read, full of the Christmas spirit and happiness and joy. It is very sweet and tidy but the characters are adorable and you just are rooting for them the entire book.
Angie has a big heart, and a huge love of Christmas. She is back home after her life out in California has taken a wrong turn, both in love and career, so she is at loose ends. Despite these setbacks, she dives into Christmas with no reservations, and spreads her Christmas joy to everyone she meets, or at least tries.
Nick is also a case of once burned twice shy in the romance department. He is a sweetheart too, whose love for his dog is so cute. You just know he is going to be a good guy when you learn he has a babysitter for his beloved dog Charlie! He has his own hurdles to a happy life, but is also a positive, upbeat person. When their paths cross in a local coffee shop, the story is off and running and the reader just follows along happily, enjoying this sweet little story. I could totally see this book being turned into a Hallmark Christmas movie one day!
If you are in the mood for light and happy and holiday in spirit, this is the one for you! Perhaps enjoy with a few cookies or a peppermint mocha! (I did…)
