A Poppy Creek Novel
The Clause in Christmas あらすじ・解説
This endearing, sweet romance will warm your heart and fill you with hope.
Cassie Hayward hates Christmas. Especially this year.
No job. Flat broke. And an ex most definitely on the naughty list.
But the unexpected inheritance of a Victorian cottage in the idyllic town of Poppy Creek may be the miracle Cassie needs. Except for one problem: a clause in the will. Cassie must complete a series of festive tasks for each day in December leading up to Christmas. Overseen by the disarmingly handsome, Christmas-loving lawyer Luke Davis.
Luke is as strong and steady as the bespoke furniture he crafts as a hobby. He has to be. Stepping into his late father's shoes as the town lawyer comes with a sleigh full of responsibilities. Which means the alluring stranger collecting her inheritance is a distraction he can't afford.
As the unlikely pair work together to complete the daily tasks, fighting their attraction becomes more futile than putting good ole St. Nick on a diet. But when Cassie's ex reappears with the offer of a lifetime, she'll have to choose between love and the life she always wanted.
Curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and visit a town that feels like home. A "must-read" year after year.
"The Clause in Christmas is a gift that will keep on giving, no matter the season." (Dave Cenker, author of the heart-warming Pigeon Grove series)
