A classic heartwarming tale for the holidays from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery
The cheer in Fool's Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. An injury has forced her to return home to her estranged family. So she won't add to the awkward scenario by falling for the charms of her brother's best friend, no matter how tempting he is. When she's recruited to stage the winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move on, anywhere but here.
Jaded lawyer Dante Jefferson is getting used to the town he now calls home, but the pounding of little dancers' feet above his office is more than he can take. When he confronts their gorgeous teacher, he's unprepared for their searing attraction. Evie is his best friend's sister—off-limits unless he's willing to risk his heart. Dante has always believed that love is dangerous, but that was before he had to reckon with the magic of a certain small town, where miracles do seem to happen….
Bestseller Mallery s 10th romance set in the Sierra Nevada town of Fool s Gold, Calif. (after All Summer Long) brings together two people who aren t exactly thrilled to be in town for the holidays. Dancer Evie Stryker feels like an outcast, and only returns to Fool s Gold after a leg injury sidelines her performing career. Lawyer Dante Jefferson ends up in the tiny hamlet after his law partner, Rafe Stryker Evie s older brother relocates their practice from San Francisco. Neither is looking for romance: Evie can t wait to heal and get back to work, and Dante, whose mother was shot and killed as a lesson after Dante dated a gang leader s girlfriend, is terrified of loving anyone. As Evie tries to forgive her family for a tough childhood and Dante wonders whether he can risk his heart, both experience the closeness and camaraderie of a small town where everyone pulls together. This sweet Christmas treat is a pleasant introduction to Mallery s popular series.

I already have this book, why is it on the pre- ordered list?
I think the next book is supposed to be Christmas on 4th Street, not this one.
