Description:

Trish Ackerly never expected to cross paths with Ian Rafferty again, but when she spots the former bully of her childhood years through her bakery window, she thinks she may just have been given the best Christmas gift ever: the opportunity to finally give Ian the comeuppance he deserves.

But clearly she does not have a knack for this whole revenge thing, because before she can make good on her plans, Trish gets inadvertently drawn into Ian’s life in an unexpected way that lets her see just how different the man is from the boy he used to be. In fact, much to her astonishment, she actually starts to like the guy.

A lot.

Trouble is, Ian doesn’t know who she really is, and explaining it to him is going to be a little difficult now—which is bad news, because Trish is starting to realize that all she really wants for Christmas this year…is Ian.

My Thoughts:

This book starts with Trish at work in her bakery and notices outside is the man who drove her nuts as kid.  All sorts of teasing she got from him.  She ends up working for him decorating windows for his daughter who is going through her own form of teasing at school.  Kelsey bonds quickly with Trish, and Trish bonds with helping Kelsey have a good Christmas.  Ian doesn't realize who Trish really is and eventually she has no option but to tell him the truth.  Will he accept who she really is?

This was such a cute novella I loved it.  I loved how the relationship between Ian and Trish forms and the things they learn about each other.  Also loved reading about Kelsey and Trish connecting.  Such a great Christmas story!
