Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe presents a heartwarming, uplifting novel about two long-time co-workers who seem unlucky in love. But this Christmas may give them a surprising chance to find themselves - and each other....

With a successful career, money in the bank, and a solid future, Felicia Hawkins has almost everything she ever wanted. But getting married is the one holiday wish she can't seem to get. And it's not helping that she's hopelessly in love with her co-worker, widower Richard Grimes. They have the perfect office partnership, and he's as supportive as he is kind. But Felicia doesn't want to wreck their friendship by letting him know how she really feels....

Richard has his hands full juggling pre-Christmas work demands and raising two teen daughters. But he's not too busy to wish his relationship with Felicia could become much more. He's drawn to her calm spirit and determination, along with everything they surprisingly have in common. And just once he'd like a chance this season to dare tell her the truth....

But what Felicia and Richard get instead is a cascade of misunderstandings; messy, well-meaning matchmaking from family and friends, and a long-distance transfer Richard can't refuse. Finally, in the middle of one chaotic snow-struck day, it will take all their courage and compassion to risk opening their hearts to each other - hopefully for many more holiday happily-ever-afters....

Horrible

This is not the Mary Monroe I've grown to love. The storyline was so predictable and the worse I've read. There was no depth to it. I will see if I can get my money back.

Very Basic

I struggled from beginning to end. Not a good book. Interesting points of discussion like finding love later in life and again but characters were never fully developed. Liked grandma Lucy.

narrator's

the story was good but it would have been better if the man just did the male voice and the female only did the female voices

Really Mary Monroe?

Not at all as good as any of your other books. I am a raving fan of your work but this last one was boring.

nice listen.

This was a very nice book. I listen while I DIY my bathroom. I was done when the book was finishing. I hope it a part two so we can see the girls grown up and a new baby.
