Publisher's Summary

The Christmas bells are chiming across the Outer Banks town of Bell Cove, North Carolina, but there’s one local "grinch" who’s not listening....

He’s got bad-boy looks and a "Bah, Humbug" attitude, so when the local paper asks the villagers to vote on the “Biggest Local Grinch” as a fund-raising project, Ethan Rutledge isn’t surprised to hear he’s made the ballot. He might own the local Christmas tree farm, but the holiday hasn’t been welcome in his home since Wendy Patterson left him heartbroken 12 years ago.

But now Wendy’s back, fresh from a tour of duty as a female Navy SEAL. She’s bold, beautiful, and has five Navy buddies trailing after her - as if she needs a bodyguard! And what’s all this about them wanting to start a treasure-hunting company right here in Bell Cove’s failing bell factory? 

Then Wendy learns about how Ethan’s been nurturing the one thing he has to remember her by: a gorgeous Norway spruce tree.

Can the magic of Christmas and the spirit of the town help rekindle the romance between two people who thought they’d left love behind years ago?

Love, Love Sandra Hill

As a North Carolina girl, the setting feels familiar from the small town antics to the quick temperature changes. Ms Hill did a fabulous job of making it feel like the Outer Banks. The relationship between Ethan and Wendy is so real and beautiful, and hot, that you want to thump them. I can understand why they would hesitate to open up again. The variety of characters Ms Hill has created adds more color and texture to the story.
My only ding, and she can claim creative license, is as a manager of an ABC store, alcohol sales in NC is regulated by the state and wouldn’t vary from store to store.
Still I loved this story!
