OH my! What a cute story. I have to admit I did get rather frustrated with Jake, but he finally made me sigh with contentment. I love Laura's writing, and this story is no exception. Told from the point of view of the woman it is very fun to get inside the head of a young lady who was very unsure of her stance. I love the setting of the Christmas tree farm, and the business proposal that helped both the farm and the senior citizen's center. A great holiday story, quick reading. 5 stars from this reviewer.

Jake Trivett has quit his job in California to come home and help his dad. A friendship with Gracia, who he’s always admired, intrigues him. Gracia’s heart flutters with more than Christmas spirit when Jake, an old flame, whose father runs a struggling tree farm answers the phone. Will Gracia receive more than Christmas trees this year?
