About this ebook

Can she show this engineer how to build a home?

Jason Regan is a man on the go. Excluding his high school years in Holly, Idaho, he’s never settled in one place. Building his engineering company requires a lot of travel, so when he returns to Holly to visit his aunt and pay a decade-old parking ticket, he’s not planning to stay for Christmas. The judge’s ruling changes that—he’s assigned community service at an animal shelter requiring his skills.

Former lawyer Tess Evans moved home to pursue her true calling—managing the Forever Home Animal Shelter. The shelter is chronically underfunded and understaffed. So, to raise money and awareness, she organizes a ‘Home for the Holidays’ adoption event at Holly’s Christmas festival. Getting a skilled volunteer at such a critical time is a gift and Tess takes full advantage. Their to-do list is long, and not falling in love is number one.

As their attraction grows, they keep forgetting Jason’s stay in Holly is temporary. Can Tess, a lonely terrier named Neville and some Christmas magic change his mind?

This new series takes us to Holly, Idaho, a small town where everyone knows you and where Tess Evans lives. Tess, a former lawyer and hometown girl, left her stressful job in Chicago, to return home and manage her grandmother’s dream, the Forever Animal Shelter. Jason Regan , an engineer who owns a successful company and a man always on the go, spent four years in Holly . While his parents were in digs around the world, he lived with his aunt. Now he’s in town to settle a decade old parking ticket and visit his aunt . He’s shocked when he’s assigned 100 hours of community service at the Forever Animal Shelter. At first, Jason doesn’t remember Tess from HS, but she definitely does. She had a crush on him . As the two start working together to make repairs in the shelter, while also trying to get a grant for it, feelings develop. The imaginary crush becomes a real attraction and maybe more. But when an emergency takes Jason back West, Tess is left realizing she loves him. Will Jason come back ? Will Holly be willing to leave the home she loves to find her true love? This was a heartwarming ,sweet, clean , romance that will touch your hearts. You will meet the wonderful rescues and fall in love with Neville, the terrier. I can’t wait for the next story in this series. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Tule Publishing. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

This is the first book in a new series based in Holly, Idaho and WOW what a wonderful start to a series this is. Tess Evans runs an Animal Shelter that runs on charitable contributions and grants. Right now at the end of the year, she is waiting to find out if she can empty the shelter and win the grant she needs. Then we have Jason Reagan who has come back to Holly on a 10-year traffic warrant. Yes you heard that right 10-year-old warrant. The judge sentences him to work at Tess's Shelter Forever Home, for 100 hours. Oh yes, he has to do it all before December 24th too. Good thing his Aunt Mae lives there in Holly and is so happy to see him. Of course, he has no idea that Tess had a thing for him back in high school and now he just might have a wee bit of a thing for her as well. This is one of those books that as soon as I finished it, it had me wanting to go to the closest shelter and pick out a new friend. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series. I sure hope we get to see what happens in Coach Mutt's life.
