Widower Dominick Decker needs to win over his in-laws so they don’t challenge him for custody of his daughter Jessie. His wife’s last wish was that he and Jessie move to Christmas Town. As a second generation repairman he doesn’t understand why Christmas is so important to everyone. You put up a tree, buy some gift cards and order a pre-made turkey dinner from the grocery store, which leaves plenty of time for service calls in between. What more does he need to do?
A lot if he’s to win over his Christmas-loving in-laws.
Enter Ruby Caldwell, owner of Santa School and trainer of “professional” Santas. Now that she’s been laid off from her day job, she needs to take Santa School from a part-time seasonal hobby to a full-time year-round operation. That requires a positive mindset, along with a healthy dose of creativity. Step one: Elf School to train single dads like Dominick to put on a great Christmas by themselves. All she needs are a few willing dads and a don’t-quit smile.
With a challenge like Dominick, let’s hope Ruby’s smile holds out this holiday season.
Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. Between writing sweet romance for Harlequin and indie-pubbed sweet romantic comedy, Melinda finds time to relax with her husband over home remodeling projects. She recently came to grips with the fact that she’s an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than jet-setting on a potty.
