Come home this Christmas to...
CHRISTMAS TOWN, TENNESSEE
Where everyday dreams come true!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ginny Baird brings you the start of a brand new holiday series...

THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE SHOP
(Christmas Town, Book 1)

Hannah Winchester is down on her luck and disillusioned with love, but her fortunes are about to change. When Hannah inherits a defunct bakery in East Tennessee, her first thought is to sell it and settle her substantial debt. Then the townsfolk welcome her warmly and she's taken with the joyful spirit of the place, where stores employ holiday themes and residents have surnames like Christmas and Claus. After a handsome lawman comes to her aid dressed as Santa, Hannah learns he's more than a hot guy in a red suit and shiny black boots. Sheriff Carter Livingston has joined in the cause of rejuvenating the town, and he's encouraging her to do her part. Hannah's great-grandmother, Lena, sold special holiday cookies that brought hope and renewal to the people of Christmas Town. Yet Hannah has plans elsewhere and isn't looking to stay. Can she possibly reopen the shop known for kindling romance--without sacrificing her heart?

EXCERPT 

The last turn she took was supposed to lead straight to the town roundabout, the one that connected with South Main Street. Hannah had been told to watch for a flagpole, the courthouse, a library, and a big town sign. But all she saw ahead of her in these near-whiteout conditions was more snow! That's when a flashing blue glimmer in her driver's side mirror caught her eye.Thank goodness! Help has arrived. It had to be a cop figuring her for a distressed motorist. Hannah certainly couldn't get any more distressed than this.

Hannah hadn't journeyed to Tennessee for a leisurely visit. She'd inherited a business she knew absolutely nothing about, and she was determined to sell it at the first opportunity. She tried to imagine herself running a cookie shop, but just couldn't. The only picture that came to mind involved huge plumes of black smoke curling out an open doorway. Where some people had a brown thumb in the garden, Hannah wore a charred oven mitt in the kitchen. She couldn't even microwave popcorn without the bag catching fire.

Hannah spun in her seat to better view the approaching figure in dark clothing. No, wait. It's a matching red tunic and slacks worn beneath an open field coat. The full silhouette of a man emerged from a snowy swirl and Hannah's heart thumped. It wasn't just any outfit; it was a Santa suit. Though she'd never seen Old Saint Nick looking quite like that. Rather than being short and stout, he was tall and built, with an obviously solid chest and a manly jaw thinly disguised by a fake white beard. A Santa hat sat slightly askew on his head, partially covering short brown hair. He strode to her driver's side window in shiny black boots and tapped on the glass. Hannah goggled at the apparition, then lowered her window a crack.

Evergreen eyes peered in at her and Hannah caught her breath. She didn't even know eyes came in that color. They reminded her of Christmas trees: the really fresh kind, not the plastic sort that normally stood on an end table in the corner of her apartment.

"Everything okay in there? I saw that you'd pulled over. No wonder, really." Little lines crinkled around his eyes, lending them warmth beneath the wind's chill. "Given the weather." He tugged off his fake beard and stuffed it in his pocket, exposing a rugged face.

Whoa, he was a good-looking Santa. She judged him to be a few years older than her but not more than five. As if his age mattered! Hannah wasn't in Tennessee to stay and she certainly wasn't in the market for a man. She'd had enough boyfriends to last her, thank you very much. And every...single...one of them had let her down. Love. Just one more four-letter word that had been canned from her vocabulary.

There is nothing to put you in the Christmas mood that a wonderful delightful Christmas story that takes place in a cute little town with wonderful towns people who make you smile, laugh as they leave you with a smile on your face. Here you have one lady that just can’t get a break, at first she thought she would go to Christmas Town sell the shop that she has inherited why paying off everything she owes. What she found is a delightful town filled with delightful people who always give a hand to those in need along with one hot sheriff that she can’t take her eyes off of. Maybe just maybe she might stick around and give this shop and the sheriff a chance to change her mind.

This is a story that I enjoyed very much I read it at one setting having trouble putting it down. Hannah grows to love this town and the members as much as you will. The town can’t wait to have those delightful cookies. They even say they have magic in them. Now this I have got to see. The only problem is she has no recipes, can’t cook and no money to put into this project. Who can turn down a helping hand from Santa not Hannah not when he is as tall and good looking as this Santa? I really enjoyed the chemistry as sparks fly you are left wondering if the town might burn down. One look at the shop and all the work it needs has her saying thanks but no thanks as she makes plans to sell. If the handsome Santa (Carter) has his way she will be staying for a very long time. As in most small town you have the town’s people in your business trying their hand at matchmaking. At times I had to chuckle at the things they come up with.

This was really a delightful read of two people not looking for love but if the town has any say they will be a match made in heaven. I hope you pick up this wonderful read and give it a try.
