~Book 2.5 in the Welcome to Hardy Falls series~


Two couples just starting out. Two life-changing surprises. Sometimes love gives you more than you bargained for.


Hannah Frederickson always thought the only family she’d have would be the people working for her at the Country Time Bar and Grill. She’s thrilled when, just a few months after realizing her bartender, Deacon Black, is also the man of her dreams, she learns her life is about to change yet again. But why isn’t Deacon as delighted as she is about the news? Didn’t he want this to happen?


June Esperanza has been taking care of herself for a heck of a lot longer than she's been employed at the Country Time. She’s not about to stop now, not even after finding a second chance at love with Calvin Hardy. Then June discovers she does not have a stomach bug, and everything changes. When it comes down to it, can she count on Calvin? Or will she have to deal with this the way she’s handled everything else in her life—alone?


As Christmas draws near in the town of Hardy Falls, two couples grapple with the unexpected. Will Deacon embrace Hannah and their new adventure or let his fear and doubt rip them apart?  Will June finally bring Calvin into the center of her life or push him even further away?  Are any of them ready to face the challenges ahead?


Welcome to Hardy Falls, Pennsylvania, where love can take turns you didn’t see coming.  Better just hold on for the ride.

About the author

Betsy Horvath is the author of the "Welcome to Hardy Falls" series—contemporary romance novels set in a little town full of interesting people nestled in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  


Her books are the direct result of having been raised on a steady diet of old MGM musicals, Nancy Drew, and Harlequin romances.  These forces combined to ensure that the only things she ever wanted to read or write had happy endings.  In other words, she's a hopeless romantic.  But she's good with it.


You can find Betsy on her website / blog (www.betsyhorvath.com) or frolicking through the verdant fields of social media on Facebook (www.facebook.com/BetsyHorvathAuthor), Twitter (www.twitter.com/BetsyHorvath), or Pinterest (www.pinterest.com/betsyhorvath1)

Her life is a mess. He’s definitely a temptation. Things are about to get complicated.


Josie Kline used to think she had things under control. That was before she got laid off from her job, kicked out of her apartment, and found herself driving through the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania in the middle of a surprise blizzard.


When she slides, literally, into the Country Time Bar and Grill, she discovers not only a haven from the storm but new purpose—helping to save her hometown’s landmark business from financial ruin. Now, if she could stop thinking about Mateo Guerrero, the darkly handsome, yet incongruous dishwasher, everything would be great. Doesn’t she have enough problems already?


Mat is still surprised to find himself working as a dishwasher/bartender in Hardy Falls after leaving a broken relationship behind in Texas. The last thing he wants to do is get involved with a beautiful stranger who blew in with the storm and stayed to be a thorn in his side. Josie has trouble written all over her, and Mat refuses to risk his heart again. Too bad she’s as enticing as she is annoying.


Once Josie and Mat succumb to their overwhelming attraction, it’s supposed to be a casual, short-term fling. But the deeper they get, the harder it becomes for either of them to walk away. Then, just as everything looks like it might work out, the ghosts of Mat’s past raise their heads, jeopardizing any future he and Josie may have together—and any hope they have for a lasting love.


Welcome to Hardy Falls, Pennsylvania, where sometimes love can pave the way for a new beginning—as long as you’re brave enough to accept the challenge.
