In this Christmas love story, Deputy Shawna Mallory finds runaway, Billy McCrae, in a mound of snow with an anxious puppy guarding him. He’s a sad child, surviving a terrible existence until she puts a stop to it and becomes his foster parent. Drawn to the snarky kid, she just wants his life to be happier, his and the stray mutt who won’t leave his side. Not that the boy cares at all about the dog… or her.
After the death of his wife, John Reid McCrae has returned to Carlton Grove with only one goal. To get his son Billy back. He’ll do whatever it takes, no matter who gets hurt – until he meets Billy’s only friend, his new foster mother – the town’s stunning deputy. Can he put his needs ahead of her happiness?
