Silver Bell Inn is home to Freya James. The picturesque Victorian has belonged to her family for generations, but her father wants to sell after her mother passes. However, Freya’s adamant that’s not going to happen. As a mountain of repairs skyrocket, she’s working day and night to keep the inn afloat, but fears this may be the last Christmas at the inn unless there’s a miracle.
TV chef Gabriel Blake is scouting out potential restaurants for his cooking show, Gabriel’s Dreams Do Come True. The problem is, after a disastrous television interview, he manages to offend everyone in Maine, making him public enemy number one. When a tantalizing email lands in his inbox, offering him the perfect hideaway at Silver Bell Inn, he’s intrigued but unsure about staying in the small town of Echo Falls, Maine.
Then a phone call with the engaging owner changes his mind.
Freya James is not only a sweet temptation to look at, but she has a heart of gold and is hosting the annual cookie fundraiser for underprivileged children at the inn. The sugary treats and the pretty brunette are equally addictive and dangerous for Gabriel, who hates the holiday season as it reminds him of his painful past.
As the sparks of attraction increase, will Freya be able to help Gabriel overcome his triggers and heal?
Will Gabriel show Freya there’s more to life than work?
