The Christmas Cabin
"Perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber." --Publishers Weekly on The Last Carolina Sister
There's no place like home for the holidays...
As a girl, single mom Lauren Maxwell hated Magnolia, North Carolina. And she thought she'd left her hometown in the rearview mirror years ago, but a message from her beloved baby brother, Brody, changes all that. He's getting married on Christmas Eve. So a holiday at Camp Blossom, the rustic sleepaway camp that had been a haven during her growing-up years, it is. Lauren won't even have to see her dictatorial father. Or her ex-husband, Ben...
When Ben greets her at the surprisingly decrepit cabin, he's just as stubborn--and as irresistible--as ever. And when she discovers he's working with her estranged father to buy the campgrounds and rebuild them as luxury housing, Lauren is furious. She won't let the man who broke her heart win. So she and her daughter stay in town to block the sale.
But the magic of the Christmas season brings back memories Lauren tried so hard to forget: his crooked smile, their daughter's laughter at the breakfast table, the feel of her hand in his. As the spark between them rekindles, Lauren realizes that second chances are real. And they're worth fighting for.
