Publisher's Summary

"Charming characters, delightful stories, touch-your-heart romance - yes, you're in Rivers End." (Susan Fox, international best-selling romance author)

When Selina Peterman arrives in Rivers End one stormy night, it’s disorienting enough to discover she’s inherited a house. But when she learns the house is filled to the rafters with junk - and uncomfortable family secrets - all she wants is to clean it, sell it, and get the heck out. No problem, except that she’s about to meet the biggest complication of all: the gorgeous caretaker who’s living there.

Connor O’Donnell knows he shouldn’t get involved with the sexy granddaughter of the man he’d looked up to for so long. He’s not sure he’s even ready for a relationship, and getting involved with someone he knows isn’t going to stick around is risky - if not outright stupid. But with the snow falling outside and Christmas on the way, it’s all too easy for the two of them to stay inside and play house. It’s only for a few days, right?

Come home to Rivers End and discover the ghosts of Christmases past....

Snow Globes and the Honesty Zone

What a great time to return to Rivers End. I’m not a huge fan of Christmas but this story put me in a festive mood. I can relate to Selena. She’s a professional organizer – as in she does that for a living. Okay, that part I can’t relate to. I can relate to finding a huge mess and the daunting task of sorting through it. Selena inherited this house quite suddenly and she finds herself facing the biggest disaster she’s ever seen, all while coping with some hard truths including the fact people in her life whom she’s trusted have lied to her.

Meeting Connor was definitely not on Selena’s list. And the woman is an ardent list maker. Connor has been taking care of Selena’s grandfather in his last few years and is grieving that death. Faced with losing the only home he’s known for years, he’s at a loss. Throw in a gorgeous vital woman and that loss is amplified. He hadn’t planned on getting involved. No, he’s still battling his own demons. But Christmas has a way of making everything clear.

Selena is hell-bent on leaving Rivers End. She has a business and career awaiting her. Yes, she can take some time off to settle her grandfather’s estate, but she has a life to get back to. Right? As Rivers End does its magic, Selena finds herself longing for things she’s never had. That might even include Connor. But Connor hasn’t been completely forthcoming either and Selena is feeling like there’s no one she can trust. I wondered if they would get their happy ending.

Also, I just want to say that I love the symbolism of the snow globes. Those have always been a favorite of mine.

I love these novellas. A lovely story in a manageable bite. A palette cleanser from some of the longer and more involved stories I tackle. There’s something about a sweet romance that calls to me. Brandolin Barrett narrated this story and I think she did a great job. She handled Serena, Connor, as well as a host of other characters and even a couple of young adults. So, yeah, job well done. Another book I can recommend.
