Jace Applewhite is home for the holidays, helping out on his family's Christmas tree farm and enjoying some much needed downtime between semesters of grad school. He's intrigued by the sexy and serious barista from The Daily Grind, but she's got a Hand's Off vibe that can be seen from miles away.
Tara Honeycutt missed most of her college years being single parent to her two younger half siblings. Working multiple jobs, she's forgotten what it's like to be a normal twenty-something. All her focus is on giving the kids some new holiday memories.
When a major gas line breaks, leaving them with no heat, no hot water, and no way to cook for Christmas, Jace invites Tara and her sibs out to Applewhite Farms. Will a good old fashioned farmhouse Christmas be enough to get Tara to give him a second glance?
I’d read about Tara and Jace in separate books but it was so sweet to read about their story.
Way too long! I do like longer books buy this just dragged along way too slow.
Quick read with a HEA
This book is a great story about turning a bad teenage memory into a happier ending. Lexi and Zach were the couple who never knew they should be together growing up… until she realized it and put her heart on the line. Poor Zach didn’t know Lexi was crushing on him and thought she was joking when she asked him to prom... will they ever recover after she goes into hiding (from him) for years? It was funny to see their friends’ reactions when the sparks finally happen.
