Till it Stops Beating by Hannah R. Goodman

The first book in the series, The Mistletoe Promise, was excellent. The books need not be read in order, like most series, because neither the characters nor the plot continue from the first to the second… Continue reading The Mistletoe Inn by Richard Paul Evans
