It was a year and a half ago that renowned artist, Jennifer Okimoto breezed into the sleepy mountain town of Hope Falls and fell head over heels in love with one rugged and devastatingly good-looking stranger for the sexiest two weeks of her life. Kissing and cuddling. Sneaking around. Theirs was a whirlwind romance.
But it ended abruptly, without warning or explanation, and Jennifer was left heartbroken and confused.
In all this time, she hasn’t been able to rid the man who first stole then broke her heart from her mind, but Kody Knowles isn’t the reason she’s booked a solo flight back to Hope Falls for the holidays…
At least, that’s what she’s telling herself.
Working-class to the bone and as brawny as they come in the Sierra Nevada foothills, Kody has only one regret and it has everything to do with the girl he let get away. He told himself he had no choice. A fling was one thing. Discovering who he really was would be quite another. And turning his back on the only woman he’s ever truly loved had been the only option. She’s long gone, anyhow. He doubts she even remembers his name.
But when Jennifer shows up in his home town for the holidays, he might just get a second chance.
It could take a Christmas miracle for these two to find their happily ever after, but miracles aren’t so hard to come by when a small town with a big heart, as well as the Fabulous Four, have your back.
The Bridge & Tunnel Romances continue in author, Melanie Shawn’s fictional world of Hope Falls, California in this sweet, Christmastime novel.
