COMING THIS CHRISTMAS

Vermont, 1933


Nettie Baker wants one thing for Christmas, to make her grandmother happy, and she’s determined to do it despite having just lost her job. But her gran’s only wish is for Nettie to find love. Sadly, that isn’t going to happen. Nettie has met every single man in town, and there simply isn’t anyone left to fall in love with. Everyone thinks she’s a little crazy anyway for her fascination with snowflakes. But when the handsome Ray Norwood returns to town and asks for piano lessons, her grandmother’s wish seems less out of reach. 


Ray Norwood hasn’t been home in years. The memories and mistakes of the past are best left untouched, but his mother and sister-in-law beg him to return home for Christmas and make peace with his brother. He’ll give them two weeks. Then it’s straight back to Boston. At least, that was his plan until the beautiful Nettie Baker captivates him with her kindness and the unique way she sees the world. But is the spark that kindles between them enough to overcome past hurts and start a new life?
