Competitive, work-obsessed Bella Simonetti has just been fired from her high-paying job at a Manhattan law firm. At an all-time low, she returns home and helps her parents at their small-town gift shop, but the business is failing and may not make it past the Christmas holidays.
Successful landscape architect Dean Jackson is like a son to Bella's parents. But he's a persistent annoyance to her—he seems to have forgotten his unforgivable blunder thirteen years earlier.
When Bella transforms her parents' gift shop into a cookie cottage, Dean's generosity and magnetic smile are hard to resist, and those feelings of unrequited adolescent love come rushing back. But can Bella let go of the past and accept Dean for the man he is today?
Romance+ Christmas =Page Turner
I did not want this book to end! The mixture of a well-woven storyline, filled not only with the romance of Bella and Dean but also the love of family, and sprinkled with the magic of Christmas was the perfect recipe for Maria Imbalzano’s latest book “Red Velvet Crinkles and Christmas Sprinkles”.
