Mandy meets Jake when he walks into the store where she works. He is curious and shows excitement for the information she shares. She finds out at lunch with him, that he is trying to secure a hotel in her small town.
Jake is not sure if he wants to stay in this small town due to what he feels for his company, or rather what he feels for Mandy. He knows that he does not like being away from her. When they are apart, its all he can do to get back to her fast enough.
Mandy has a secret that she has kept from Jake. She has never kept it from anyone else so she is not sure when the right time to tell him is. When it is clear she feel something more permanent for him she decides he must know and she needs to figure out how to tell him.
This is a Christmas story that will surely become a classic. It is a timeless book about a love that must fight to be kept. It has such a good story about the reason we believe in the magic of Christmas. It is a very good start to the Evergreen Lane series. I think all romance readers should have a copy of this clean romance on their shelves! I give it a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
