"I could not put the book down….
One of the BEST books I have ever read…. Truly a wonderful read."
Leah is determined to make this Christmas the best ever for her foster son. Even if it means working with her grinchy new neighbor...
Leah has been waiting months for the call saying she’s been selected as a foster mother. But from the moment she meets her troubled foster son, he wants nothing to do with her. For some reason, he’d rather spend time with Leah’s grumpy new neighbor, Austin. Leah would prefer to keep her distance from the man, but if spending time with him is the price she has to pay to connect with her son, she’ll do it. And maybe she’ll try to convince Austin that Christmas is worth celebrating while she’s at it.
For Austin, Hope Springs is just a stopping point as he rehabilitates his leg and prepares to redeploy overseas. He has no desire to get to know anyone while he’s here—least of all the woman next door, who seems to have made it her personal mission to smother him with Christmas cheer. When she somehow manages to rope him into helping her make the holiday special for her foster son, Austin can’t deny that spending time with her is healing the broken parts inside of him.
But when he receives news that shatters his world all over again, will he push her away? Or embrace the gift God has given them this Christmas—each other?
