Linnea Olsen never thought she'd be back in Marietta for good. But when her parents ask for help with the family orchard and cider making business, she packs up her bags and heads to her hometown with her daughters in tow. Determined to settle in to the community, she plans a Christmas charity concert. She soon realizes she’s in over her head, so when she hears that her singer-songwriter ex is back in town, she enlists his help.
Uninspired by life on the road, singer-songwriter Nat Hathaway has quietly returned to Marietta to pen his new album. But his high school girlfriend, Linnea, has other ideas–she’s already volunteered him to co-organize a charity Christmas concert with her. As they spend more time together, Nat is drawn to the warmth and comfort that he sees in Linnea and her girls.
Linnea knows that this is only a holiday-romance because Nat will be back on the road soon and she needs stability for her girls. Still, as the holiday season begins to wind down, she hopes that a Christmas miracle will inspire Nat to put roots down in Marietta for good.

This was a wonderful holiday story that truly touched my heart. Going home can sometimes be hard but it also is sometimes exactly what you need. That's the case for Nat Hathaway and Linnea Olsen. They dated in high school but went their separate ways after graduation. Now he's a disillusioned songwriter/singer and she's a widowed mother of two young girls. She came back to help her family and start over, he came back to look for a little inspiration to finish writing songs for his new album/ When Linnea convinces Nat to help her with a Christmas charity concert the get to spend a lot of time together and discover that the old attractions are still there.
Put this one on the holiday reading list, I highly recommend it.
