New York Times best-selling author Shannon Stacey celebrates the season in this brand-new holiday novella.

After a messy breakup, Leigh Holloway is ready to start her life over. Until her parents put the family home on the market and call her back for one final memory-making Christmas. The last thing she wants to do is deprive her mom of the perfect holiday, so she'll lie her way through the visit and worry about her future in the New Year. Too bad the only bar in town is owned by a guy she seriously wronged in high school.

Leigh's best friend broke Croy Dawson's heart, and Croy knows it was Leigh's fault. They've never liked each other, but Croy isn't cruel: He'd never turn away a pretty woman in need of some family-Christmas fortification. He doesn't expect her to drink just enough candy-cane martinis to tell him her secrets - and he definitely doesn't expect to get caught up in her holiday madness.

Despite the surprising love and laughter, Croy and Leigh can't escape the truth: He can't walk away from his family obligations, and she has a life and career to reboot. But anything is possible if your holiday comes with a twist.

Critic reviews

"Narrator Samantha Cook shares Leigh's and Croy's friendship-turned-romance from alternating perspectives.... She does a superlative job with dialogue, especially male voices, including Croy's. She uses a range of vocal styles to reflect character, and they sound realistic. Warmly detailing Stacey's strong visual images, Cook makes Leigh's story memorable." ( AudioFile)
