Welcome back to Jewell Cove, where this holiday season, there happens to be no room at the inn...
When a December Nor'easter roars up the eastern seaboard, Jewell Cove cop Todd Ricker spends his day off being a Good Samaritan to stranded holiday travelers. But when the roads close and Todd can't make his way home, he discovers that the Evergreen Inn is full up. Until another Good Samaritan opens her doors and offers him a place to stay...
Lainey Price is not looking forward to Christmas, but just because she's not filled with the holiday spirit doesn't mean she's going to turn Todd out into the stormy night. Even if it means offering the handsome police officer the couch in her tiny cottage. But when the weather takes a turn for the worse, the two are snowed in for a wintry evening by the fire. With Christmas only a few days away, can Todd convince Lainey to open her heart to the season...and love?
More Must Have Holiday Reads
I really enjoy stories like this. The romantic interests are both adults with put together lives. They've been through relationships and have baggage, like most of us. It's a realistic type of read. Lainey runs a bed and breakfast business. Todd is a local cop. It's a small town. They grew up together.
During a huge storm, Todd is patrolling for people who have ran off the road and taking them to safety. On his last run, he gets snowed in at Lainey's place, which is already over capacity. Sparks start flying between these two, but it isn't a full on lustfest.
This is a very enjoyable novella. I recommend Christmas at Evergreen Inn to someone looking for a down-to-earth, spicy contemporary romance.
