THE HOUSE ON MAIN STREET
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
A wonderful, warmhearted Christmas story with a strong heroine dealing with not only her own grief at the loss of a loved one, but also the grief of the others who were left behind. The sacrifices she makes for her family, the love she finds, the interesting secondary characters and a bit of magic make this a tale that brings alive the true spirit of Christmas.
Three weeks before Christmas, Tess McKenzie is back home in Apple Valley, Washington, to clear out her sister’s house. Killed in an accident, Emily and her husband left their home, their business and their 10-year-old autistic son, Alex, in Tess’s care. She plans to sell the store and take Alex, as well as her aunt Gertrude, back to Annapolis. Both Alex and Gertrude are vehemently against the move. The fact that Sheriff Cade Cunningham, her childhood friend, may now see her as a desirable woman makes the developments a bit easier to handle. (ZEBRA, Nov., 352 pp., $7.99)
