Everyone wants to live in a small town. You know, the kind of place movies are made of, happy endings are always a given.
Having grown up in Blossom Falls, Ohio, Jessie Carter would be the first to tell you, it's not all it's cracked up to be. This was exactly why she left. After landing a job as a lawyer in one of the most prestigious firms in Chicago, she was ready to take on the world.
But things don't always go as planned.
Now still reeling from a failed relationship, her integrity is suddenly under question at the firm. So, it only takes a hysterical call for help from her nine-months pregnant sister Crystal, to have her packing up and heading home.
Not for long, though. Not if she can help it.
As one of the most sought out professional baseball players around, Max Kirby surprised everyone when he signed with the first team to offer him a long-term contract. He's Ohio-bound. Believe it or not, for the next seven years, he plans to call Cleveland his home.
He shows up in the middle of December, eager to settle in, find a place to live. Little did he know an unplanned visit to Blossom Falls would lead him to Jessie. That she almost runs him over is just the start of a series of events leading up to a Christmas they'll both never forget. With even a little mystery thrown in.
This is the first book of the series, Holidays in White Oaks Valley. L. B. Joyce is also the author of the series Twelve Months, Twelve Love Stories.
