Christmas is coming to the North Carolina mountains, and the air is fresh and crisp and filled with promise. After the devastating loss of her job in the big city, the small town of Sweetwater Springs feels like heaven to Kaitlyn Russo. She's inherited her grandparents' charming (if a little rundown) bed and breakfast, and it's just the new lease on life she needs. Only "heaven" comes with a catch-and a handsome and completelyinfuriating one at that.

After what he hopes will be a quick trip, Mitch Hargrove wants nothing more than to put his hometown in the rearview mirror. But his plans get derailed when he learns he's now half-owner of the Sweetwater B&B. The fact that he's given only two months to make the inn a success is a huge problem, but it's his pretty-and incredibly headstrong-partner who's the real challenge. With the holiday fast approaching and a grand re-opening looming, will Mitch keep running from the ghosts of Christmas past . . . or will he realize the true gift he's been given?


For a while now I've been looking at this book. Thinking about reviewing but not sure if I wanted to. I wasn't sure if it was the first book in the series so I didn't give it another thought. Until I did. Ha! I was told it was the first book in her new series and decided it was something I had to try. 

I'm so glad I did. Right away I was drawn into the story. I just wanted, no needed to know what was going on. Why would Kaitlyn grandma leave here B&B to not only her granddaughter but the boy next door. Intriguing, right! 

Haha! Okay, maybe I'm overplaying my hand here but I wanted to know why. I also wanted to know why Mitch wouldn't stay in town other then for a quick visit. 

Some good things going on. 

You do get answers to my question, some quicker than others but they are tied up in a bow by the end. 

This is a wonderful story with characters you want more of. I felt like I was there as Kaitlyn decorated her and Mitch's B&B. I wanted so badly to see it and visit with all the guest. If the description was anything the place sounded beautiful. The guest also sound pretty good too. A fun group. 

There's a lot more then just the running of the B&B that the characters deal with. Both deal with their pasts and the feeling they have. This is really a very happy ending story. I totally enjoyed it and can't wait for more stories in this series. Make sure to grab this one and add it to your holiday reads. 

If you've read Christmas on Mistletoe Lane or any other book by Annie Rains I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡



  1. I haven't read this author but this sounds like a good story.

    1. It is. I've read one other book of hers but then got busy. I'm so glad I tried this one.
