Overworked California accountant, Rachel Mills, inherits an old bookstore in Marietta, Montana just as she's offered a huge promotion. The new job means longer hours and more stress when what she really craves is a break. The smart thing to do would be accept the promotion, buckle down, and keep on working. But for the first time in her life, she goes with impulsive and books a flight to Montana to inspect the bookstore, and hopefully have her first white Christmas ever.
Texan lawyer and entrepreneur, Atticus Bowen, has found the perfect location for his next restaurant—the two-story, turn-of-the-century brick building on Marietta’s Main Street. All he has to do is convince the new owner to sell Paradise Books to him. After all, used bookstores aren’t practical or viable businesses, and he’s making Rachel Mills a very generous offer. But instead of jumping on his offer, Rachel decides she’s going to open the bookstore doors for December and ‘explore her options’.
The last thing Rachel expected was to fall in love with the old bookstore, or charming Marietta, Montana. She never expected sparks to fly with handsome, arrogant Atticus Bowen, either. Smart, practical Rachel realizes she just might be falling in love with the sexy, opinionated Texan lawyer -- something that could prove to be neither smart, nor practical....or the best decision of her life.

I loved Rachel and Atticus’s Story. Both characters were very likable and drew me in from the beginning. I especially liked all the little details of the book shop and how the two initially met. I also enjoyed other characters from previous books showing up. It’s another wonderful book by Jane!
