From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a festive short romance about old flames and mistaken identities.

After a bad breakup, Nola wants nothing to do with Christmas, especially in her quaint hometown of Bright Harbor, Maine. Infuriatingly charming and cheery, Nola’s surroundings only worsen her sour mood.

To make matters worse, Caleb, the boy who broke her heart years ago, is all grown up and still living in town. While doing her best to avoid him, Nola bumps into the local mailman, who gives her a mysterious letter. And when she finds that the writer is a fellow Scrooge, she can’t help but feel her spirit lifting.

Nola writes back to her new pen pal—who, unbeknownst to Nola, is none other than Caleb. When Caleb gets a response hand delivered by the mailman, he’s intrigued by the mystery sender. A friendly correspondence develops—and quickly turns flirtatious.

Although Nola and Caleb claim they can’t stand each other, they can’t deny the simmering attraction that brought them together in the first place.

Can these nameless pen pals write their own love story—or will they be too caught up with the ghosts of their Christmases past to find a future together?

My Review

This was short and sweet! Nola is this sister of Ryot whose story we got in Untying the Knot. What’s extra fun about this story is that it takes place in the hometown where they grew up, Bright Harbor, which is near Port Snow, the town we love from Quinn’s Getting Lucky series. I loved that this story was somewhat told through the letters back and forth between Nola and Caleb. The small town characters were so much fun. I would love to spend time in this little town near Port Snow. And I was definitely left smiling by the end of the story.

The only complaint I have? That it was so short! This short story from Meghan Quinn who has most of her books these days at least 500 pages long was like sharing an appetizer at a restaurant with a group where you only get one bite or taste of it. I needed more! And now I can only wait as patiently as possible for her to give Ryot and Nola’s brother his own story some day.

      You totally need to give them a try! This is a short and sweet one, but her most recent ones get to be kind of long! So I’d try some of her older ones first.
