Description:


Dan Beckins isn't sure how he let his best friend con him into volunteering to build Santa's Winter Wonderland at the local hospital. He's got no problems with charity work, but anything Christmas-related is off-limits ever since he lost his parents on Christmas Day years ago. The only bright spot is working with smoking-hot Anna Smith.

Anna Smith loves Christmas and volunteering at the hospital is one of her yearly highlights. She had leukemia as a teen and then a breast cancer scare in her mid-twenties, and is now operating under a self-imposed rule that she can't have a relationship until the doctors give her a clean bill of health.

A little fling might be permissible, though, and sexy lawyer-turned-carpenter Dan seems like the perfect candidate. But when chemistry flares and the two start forming a real connection, will Anna run away before like turns to love?

My Thoughts: 

This was a cute story about Dan and Anna.  Dan Beckins has a big problem with Christmas as his parents died on Christmas along time ago.  When his friend signs him up to volunteer at a local hospital at Christmastime he meets Anna Smith who loves Christmas and wants to give back to the hospital where she was treated for Cancer as a child.  

Both main characters have much to over come and accept somethings aren't in their control and the whole better to loved and lossed then to never love at all.  Definitely a great Christmas novella.
