Sometimes all love needs is a second chance.
Morning television show darling Emma Sutton has just been fired. The only way to get her job back is to find a holiday story to warm the coldest heart. So when her hometown of Sugar Creek, Arkansas, needs a Christmas event planner, Emma moves back, sure her story lies in the town’s desire to become a tourist’s holiday wonderland. The plan is perfect—until Emma meets her new boss.
Charming, handsome Noah Kincaid isn’t just Sugar Creek’s newest mayor. He’s also Emma’s ex-fiancé.
Ten years ago Emma left Noah her ring and a goodbye note, but it’s haunted her ever since. The last thing Noah wants to do is work with the woman who broke his heart, but Emma’s desperate to prove to him that her bah-humbug ways won’t interfere with her work.
Emma finds it’s more than the mistletoe drawing her back to Noah. Whatever they had is clearly not over, but Noah’s kisses can’t protect Emma from a past that won’t leave her alone. As the snow falls and the trees glisten, love will come to Sugar Creek. But will it come in time to make all of Emma’s Christmas dreams come true?

A perfect candidate for a Hallmark movie!
I have enjoyed Jenny Jones's books since I first read them. She has a snappy sense of humor and great banter. This book did not disappoint. I am not sure what the other reviewer was referring to about sexual innuendo, as it was very clean and innocent. The scenes between Noah and Emma were funny, moving, and tender. The strife she goes through with Noah was expected, but the backstory about losing her mother added a depth to Emma's pain that made her a more well-rounded character. I won't spoil it, but the ending was great, and I can't wait to read the sequel novella. It pertains to a different set of characters but the town is the same. Thanks for continuing to write funny, touching Christian fiction!
Jenny B. Jones does it again!!
Jenny B. Jones has a gift for really bringing love out in her characters. No matter what dark times they are facing or lie ahead there is also hope. It's that same hope that she places in her books that you the reader start to feel and keeps me coming back to her books. I also love the way with words that she has. Her characters are always so witty and funny and with sayings such as; "holy hand warmers" you can't help but laugh and cry along with the characters! This book without a doubt is a must Holiday read! It'll get you in the spirit no matter the time of year.
A quirky Christmas tale
I loved this quirky Christmas story. At first you kind of go - OK I see where this is going it’s your typical Christmas miracle type book, but then you start to meet the supporting characters and it helps to round out the story. I love the eccentric grandmother with the hint that she may work for the CIA and is retired… only not really. I found the main characters Emma and Noah to be relatable well-written. Perfect story to get me into the Christmas Spirit. I must also admit I’d like to hear the song that Emma’s dad wrote.
