Find out in this sweet winter romance full of small-town charm, memorable characters, laughter, hope, and love.
Annoyed by his infatuation with Juniper, he took a step back, uncertain what to say.
Words had never easily come to him. He was more of a doer than a talker. In his younger years, his best friend, Ky, had always filled the gap since he could talk to anyone, anytime, about anything. Ky had received the gift of gab, while Bo had been given the gift of brawn and endurance.
But at that moment, an idea or two of something witty to say would have been helpful.
“Do you live around here?” Sassy asked as Bo stood there like one of the snow carvings that would fill the town next month at the Winter Fest.
“Cedar lives in Faraday with her husband. I live in Portland,” Juniper said. “I’m just visiting through the holidays.”
“So you’ll be around for New Year’s Eve?” Sassy asked.
Heaven help him if the girl decided to take it upon herself to ask Juniper to go out with him to ring in the new year.
Juniper nodded uncertainly.
“We’re hosting a little gathering of friends that night. Would you like to join us?” Cedar asked, smiling at Bo and then Sassy in invitation. “It’s very casual and informal. We’ll have finger foods and things like pizza and jalapeno poppers, and family-friendly games.”
“Why is this the …” Juniper started to speak, but Cedar gave her a quelling look that made her snap her mouth shut.
Bo might have laughed if he hadn’t been certain there was matchmaking afoot. Under normal circumstances, he would have run in the opposite direction as fast as possible, but he really wanted to see Juniper again. A party with her sister and friends seemed harmless enough.
“We’d love to come,” Sassy said with enthusiasm before he could respond. “Thank you for inviting us.”
And before I forget, you can listen to the song that inspired the idea for this story – it’s Sleigh Bell Serenade by Bing Crosby.
