I’m not in the mood for Christmas. After a romantic relationship went up in flames, I returned to my hometown in rural Kansas. Then my mother passed away. I’m really busy with my job as fire marshal—and now with my mother’s advice column, which I reluctantly took over. There’s a sexy newcomer down the street, a guy with a young daughter and an unfortunate disregard for fire safety. He seems to want to be friends, but that creates problems that may be too hot for me to handle. The last things I need right now are flammable holiday decorations and too much holiday food. How am I supposed to give good advice to others when I can’t seem to get my own life straight?

This was amazingly and superbly sweet and a perfect start to this Advent Collection!
I just love a story about older guys and Kim Fielding is perfect at giving us “regular Joes” finding love in ordinary circumstances with extraordinary results.
This was low key, tender and very sweet.
