Kristen calls her books “sweet escape romance.” That’s how I feel about mine too. This prequel to her Port Provident:Hurricane Hope series is free right now. Here’s the blurb:
HE RETURNED HOME TO SAY GOODBYE. SHE GAVE HIM THE CHANCE AT A FRESH START.
Whitt Peoples knows this Christmas will be the worst holiday in his life. The high-powered corporate consultant is used to saving dying companies, but he can’t save his dying grandmother. Returning to Port Provident for the first time since his childhood, he hopes to slip into town—and then leave as soon as possible–without running into the other side of his family who turned their back on him when he was a kid.
Samantha Spaeth has spent her life conquering her fears. The Director of the Port Provident Historical Society isn’t afraid of anything, except the fact that she is running out of time to save one of the island’s most historic landmarks before it succumbs to development by a big-box store.
When Whitt asks her to navigate Port Provident’s history in order to help him discover the secrets from his own past, she accepts the challenge because she needs all the allies she can find to preserve the island’s heritage.
Can a woman who lives for the lessons of the past use the town’s heritage to bring the promise of true love to a man who’s spent his whole life running away?
