Back Cover Blurb:
Beautiful pastry chef Lily Edmonds is thirty years old and heartbroken. It’s just before Christmas and she’s just been dumped by via telephone by her fiancee. Her best friend Avery Putnam invites her to Indigo Island, hoping to add joy back into Lily’s life. A chance encounter with the sexy owner of a local restaurant makes Lily feel an attraction she thought she’d never feel again, and offers her a business challenge to keep her mind focused on something other than her broken heart.
Cole Stanton and Lily Edmonds are both starting over. Will the joy of the holiday season bring them together or will the troubles with Christmas push them apart?
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the main characters here. Actually, the whole cast for that matter. Rouda presents us with an interesting bunch of rich yet down to earth individuals that you can’t help but love. I think I could tell you what the characters are wearing in every scene of this novella. This single aspect really tells you a lot about the main character. Her focus is on everything, every part of those around her. It’s quite enjoyable.
As a whole, this was an enjoyable, heartfelt Christmas novella that really & truly embraces the season.
