Maybe this Christmas can thaw his frozen heart—and heal hers.

Hollywood starlet Tia Beckett knows one moment can change your life. Her career had been on the fast track before a near-fatal accident left her with a debilitating facial scar. Certain her A-lister dreams are over, she agrees to house-sit at her producer’s secluded estate in Silver Springs. It’s the escape from the limelight Tia’s been craving, until she discovers she’s not the only houseguest for the holidays. And her handsome new roomie is impossible to ignore.

Artist Seth Turner has good reason to keep his distance. Losing his wife after only a few years of marriage has left a deep scar, even if he is still happy to spend a semester teaching art classes at the New Horizons Boys Ranch for troubled teens. Despite nursing her own wounds, Tia finds her curiosity piqued by enigmatic Seth, whom she recognizes as something of a kindred soul. Maybe spending Christmas together could be another game changer for both of them—this time, for good.


Novak is bringing on the feels with this return to Silver Springs! With intriguing characters and a dramatic set-up the reader is quickly hooked on the plot in this tenth book in the series. It’s heartwarming to reconnect with the heart of the town Aiyana more in this book than many in the series and the evolving plight of Tia held my attention. I wanted a little more in one area, but overall this story was a solid addition to the series with a comforting connection.

Tia was quick to draw my sympathy and I found myself rooting for her from start to finish. She was complex, yet fresh and real.

Seth was a joy to get to know. He was a nice addition who fit in seamlessly with the family we have already grown familiar with throughout the series, but he also had a side branch that I would have liked to have seen developed more.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a small town romance with compelling characters and heartwarming storylines that will always hook you quickly.
