Personal assistant Jen Price is eager to start her new job on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, supporting temperamental chef Noah Ryder as he judges a blockbuster reality TV cooking show.
Jen, a widow, has a private mission to complete at the beach by Christmas Eve, and nothing will stop her. Not a coronavirus quarantine. Not Noah’s volatile public persona. Not the show’s producer, who seems determined to drive Jen from the set. Not even the secrets she confides in her diary, reliving past shame and regret.
Soon, Jen and Noah's simmering attraction is tested by vegan Thanksgiving, the world's ugliest charm bracelet, and a possessed elevator. With their relationship boiling over, how do Jen and Noah avoid getting burned?

If you like romantic women's fiction (or romantic comedy or romcom or rom com) with a reality TV show about cooking and baking (sort of like GBBO and GBBS) especially ones with an office romance between a boss and an employee, where the employee is a widow and the couple is in forced proximity for the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) in North Carolina, on the Outer Banks, all set during the coronavirus (COVID) pandemic and its quarantine (lockdown), then this is the book for you!
