Keira Carlesso and Dalton meet and she takes him home for Christmas. They have Christmas together several years before they both admit that they have fallen in love. It was really nice to read about Keira all grown up after meeting her as a young teen in When We Found Home. I was so happy to read about the other happy couples and see how they are doing. Awesome short book.

Loved, loved this story of Keira and Dalton. Keira befriends Dalton, who was going to spend the holidays in his car. They soon become close friends and make a pact to celebrate the holidays together every year, even if they are dating other people. Through the years they find they are both hiding something from each other. This is novella but a packed full story, that I could not put down. I was so excited to see Keira all grown up. Once again Susan Mallery has worked her magic in this wonderful Christmas story that I highly recommend.
