Her heart is broken. His furnace is broken. Christmas at the boarding house could fix everything.
Breanna Murphy’s plans for a cozy Christmas at home shatter when she finds her boyfriend entangled with another woman. But she goes home anyway—to her grandmother Mollie’s boarding house where she faces tasks that pair her with a handsome new boarder, Matt Dawson.
While temporarily rooming at the Berthoud Boarding House until his new furnace arrives, Matt sees through Mollie’s manipulations to set him up with her granddaughter. But he can’t complain about spending time with the beautiful school teacher on a Christmas-tree hunting excursion.
In a homey setting so unlike his childhood, Matt understands more clearly the words of a long-forgotten youth leader. Will those words draw him back to a long-forgotten God? And will Breanna find that home lies not in the Victorian house of her childhood, but in God’s perfect timing and the arms of the man she’s grown to love?
