Sweet Small Towns
My debut novel, A Sweetheart Christmas, is book three in the Sweetheart Springs series!
Stepping foot in Sweetheart Springs on the eve of their annual Christmas festival felt surreal. Previously, the town and festival held an air of magic for Ellie Johnson, now it only brought sadness and regret. She needed to decide if she could ignore the ghosts of her Christmas past and move on, although in a small town, it didn’t seem likely.
Having spent the last ten years of her life building up her own graphic design business in New York City, the last thing she ever considered doing was moving back to her small hometown. Especially when her thoughts tended to stray back to her first love, Tommy Donovan. But now with a failed marriage and debt piling up with the rising costs of the big city, she didn’t have much of a choice.
There weren’t many things in Tommy Donovan was proud of. Spending his life trying to do the ‘right thing’ had left him as a single dad, stuck working for his dad’s business, and abandoning anything he’d ever wanted for himself. The only silver lining was his son, Adam. Six years old, funny, and too smart for his own good.
With the only woman who ever truly held his heart back in town, Tommy is forced to come to terms with his past while planning a future for himself and his son. Not sure if he’d be able to fully let his guard down, Tommy must decide if anything short of a Christmas miracle could make his heart open to love again and rekindle the dreams he thought were never meant to be.
