Countdown to the Holidays – New Releases

Purchased your tree? Or un-boxed the artifical?
Hung (and used) the mistletoe?
Devised new ways to use tape?
Learned 22 new sailor’s knots with ribbon?

While these may be some fun past-times while experiencing the ice-apocalypse or snow-mageddon…
Carol has found something even more exciting and worth your time.

This has got to be one of the sweetest little books I have ever read. And just look at the cover. How can you resist?!

“Life takes you to unexpected places. Love brings you home.”

Seven years ago Caitlin was a freshman in college and had fallen in love with a senior, Noah. But Noah had his sights set on Vet school and thought he was doing the right thing in ending the relationship before he moved away. He didn’t think a long distance relationship would work. But he never forgot Caitlin and always regretted his decision. Now Caitlin is a preschool teacher in the small town she lives in and he is the new vet in town, not realizing she is there, until she rushes in on Christmas Eve with a tiny kitten she found almost frozen to death.

“Caitlin.” His arm reached forward, as if touching her would assure him this-she-was real. That of all the vet clinics in Montana, she’d walked into this one. “I can’t believe it.”

Noah thought hanging mistletoe in the vet’s clinic was inappropriate until Caitlin walked in. But maybe that mistletoe will turn out to be the best thing ever if it will convince Caitlin to kiss him, and maybe to give him another chance.

“Santa already delivered my presents. You and Mistletoe-and maybe a second chance.”

If you’re not in the Christmas spirit, you will most definitely be after you read this. It is a very short story but left me with a warm heart. I hope it does the same for you! Happy Holidays.
