White Oaks Inn has always been at the heart of Christmas celebrations for Scarlett Bailey and her family. Her adored gran has owned the rambling, old-fashioned hotel, filled with the scent of cinnamon and chocolate, since Scarlett was a little girl. But now her gran’s home is under threat. And it looks like it could be the Baileys’ last Christmas together there…
Over the holiday season, amidst much-loved festive traditions of baking cookies and decorating the tree, Scarlett throws herself into saving the hotel. When she hears that Charlie Bryant, a handsome, successful property developer, is spending December in Silver Falls, Scarlett is hopeful he might be the answer to their problems.
When they meet, sparks fly between impulsive Scarlett and business-like Charlie – as they both have very different ideas for the future of White Oaks. Scarlett is determined to show him how much White Oaks Inn means to her family and the guests who return there every year and, as they spend more time together, she begins to realize there is more to Charlie than his serious appearance…
But Charlie is struggling with a secret from his own past. Will he be able to face it, or will it stop him from truly opening up and getting close to anyone? And can Scarlett share the true meaning of Christmas with him and save her gran’s beloved hotel along the way?

Hale (Summer at Firefly Beach) brings the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains alive in this heartwarming Christmas romance. Scarlett Bailey travels to her grandmother's mountainside White Oaks Inn to spend Christmas with relatives. The holiday promises to be bittersweet, as the family has decided it's time to sell the failing inn. Things look up when a local from nearby Silver Falls gives Scarlett a business card for respected developer Charlie Bryant, who Scarlett hopes might buy the inn and preserve its spirit. The pair meet in person when Scarlett's truck gets stuck in the snow and Charlie comes to her aid. Even as he helps her out, he's oddly cold to Scarlett, though Scarlett now remembers that they once met as teenagers when they shared a single kiss. Despite Charlie's aloof demeanor, Scarlett sees his underlying kindness, and his walls come down when he opens up about his painful past. As Scarlett cajoles him into joining her family's Christmas festivities and the attraction between them builds, Scarlett hopes to find ways to help Charlie overcome his past personal regrets and save the inn in the process. Authentic, dimensional characters enhance the emotionally charged love story. Fast-paced and brimming with holiday spirit, this is sure to please. Agent: Claire Bord, Bookouture.
