Harmony Stewart has the ingredients for a perfect life: a precocious daughter, substantial wealth, and a supportive family. The only potential improvement would be a second shot at love. Since she’s always had a thing for doctors, Harmony’s determined to meet Mr. Right at the hospital’s Holiday Cookie Bazaar and recruits cantankerous German baker Abelard Durchdenwald with a simple deal: his cookies for her assistance in landing him his dream job.
Abel adds unexpected—and much-needed—spice to Harmony’s days, so when issues arise with Abel’s visa, she impulsively offers a fake engagement that stirs up trouble with her well-connected ex-husband, Chance. If her ex uncovers Abel and Harmony’s deception, the consequences could be catastrophic. She should scrap the plan and start from scratch, but that would mean letting go of the baker who’s turning out to be sweeter than his desserts.
