Ever since Bailey Sullivan was a little girl, Christmas has
been a nightmare. Her parents own the landmark
institution "The Perfect Christmas" in her hometown.
However, her parents have decided to call it quits, at
least temporarily, to marriage, and Bailey is stuck in her
worst nightmare: the land of Christmas.
Bailey's season gets a bit scarier when her first boy
friend and next door neighbor Finn shows up to help his
grandmother. It seems Bailey's passion for Finn has never
really gone away, and now she must deal with the hectic
holiday and her growing love for Finn. The question is:
will she run away from him again?
This is a funny, sweet and downright entertaining novel
about the joys and disappointments the Christmas season can
bring. The characters and situations seamlessly blend to
create a wonderful story of love during the holidays. I
can't wait for Ms. Ridgway's next book!
Bailey Sullivan can't stand Christmas, even though her
family's business is a store specializing in the perfect
holiday. But now her hometown's chief supplier of rooftop
Rudolphs and treetop angels is in danger of going underâ€”
it's up to Bailey to save the shop.
She has it all planned: She'll arrive on December 1 and be
gone by Christmas. Plus there's always spiked eggnog to
ease the pain. But "Humbug" Bailey's not the only one home
for the holidays. Finn Jacobsonâ€”legendary local bad boy-
turned-Secret Service agent and Bailey's long-lost high-
school sweetheartâ€”is once again the boy next door. Only
this time he's all grown up, and the sparks are flying
faster and hotter than ever!
Bailey believes in true love about as much as she believes
in Santa Claus. But as the holiday draws closer, she's
starting to think about one thing she'd like to find under
her tree . . .
