You never get a second chance at a first kiss…
Eve Richards may have been raised in a small town, but she's made her dreams of a big-city career come true. For years, she's made all the sacrifices required of a rising corporate executive, only returning to Masterson, Texas, for quick visits by flying in on Saturdays, flying out on Sundays. This December is different. Her grandmother needs help at the family bakery, so Eve is using her weeks of accrued vacation to go home and count cookies instead of corporate cash.
Eve isn’t the only person returning to town. Her childhood sidekick, the recipient of her very determined but fairly disastrous attempt at a kiss, has returned as well. Daniel Shepherd, the once-shy boy from England, is now the town’s swoon-worthy new veterinarian. Grandma’s obvious matchmaking attempts are as mortifying as the memory of the awkward kiss that ended their friendship at age thirteen, but the more time Eve spends with Daniel, the harder it is to resist the temptation to take a second chance at that first kiss.
But Daniel has come back to Masterson to put down roots; Eve will be gone after the holiday rush at the bakery. Nothing good could possibly come from letting herself fall for the man who was once her best friend. Besides, Daniel admires her for making her own dreams come true. She’s can’t abandon the career she’s sacrificed so much for, especially now that she's won a coveted promotion. Or does she have that backward? Maybe losing Daniel is the one sacrifice she’s not willing to make.
A kiss before Christmas could hold the key…but can she risk taking a second chance on a first love?
A heartwarming, wintery romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author and RITA Award winner, set in a wonderfully unique 1980s setting. Perfect for fans of sweet and sincere happily-ever-afters.
