The beloved holiday novella by New York Times bestselling author JoAnn Ross—now available as an enchanting ebook to warm up the winter. Christmas was always kindergarten teacher Kelli Carpenter’s favorite time of year—until last Christmas when Cole Douchett broke her heart by proposing to another woman. The fact that the engagement fell apart four months later was cold comfort. Now the marine is once again stateside in their Oregon coastal hometown, Shelter Bay, and Kelli is determined to avoid him. So when her family suggests a cabin up at Rainbow Lake, it sounds like the perfect escape plan.
Cole always thought of Kelli as his best friend’s kid sister, but now that he’s back home, it’s clear she’s all grown up. Even in a silly Christmas sweater directing the kindergarten play, she’s a knockout. But after her baffling behavior last year, she’s giving him the cold shoulder. Unbeknownst to Cole and Kelli, their families contrive to do some matchmaking, and the two find themselves sharing a snowbound cabin—where things really heat up…
