Lexie Starr, the 50-year-old co-owner of a B&B, adopts a local military family struggling to make ends meet at Christmas while the father serves in Afghanistan.
Soon collection bins are overflowing with toys, food, and household items for the Allens, so Lexie expands her cause to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program.
Then the most expensive toys go missing and Lexie is determined to bring the holiday-cheer-stealing grinch to justice . . . until she meets him.
Foreword by Sgt. Dominique G. Yost, USMC, Toys for Tots Coordinator, Leavenworth, Kansas
