A special treat to warm your heart, just in time for the holidaysâ€”a sparkling new novel from New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels. . . .
Christmas is more than just a celebration for Lauren Montgomery. For generations, itâ€™s been her familyâ€™s livelihood. Their Christmas shop, Razzle Dazzle DĂ©cor, has seen seasonal fads come and go, but thereâ€™s one trend they canâ€™t escape. Online superstores are swallowing their sales, and this Christmas season will need to be their best ever if the store is to stay in business.
To help keep the shop afloat, Lauren also has a sideline, writing biographies for business figures. Sheâ€™s thrilled when her literary agent contacts her with a new proposalâ€”before learning that the subject will be none other than John Gerald Giompalo. Heâ€™s the titan behind Globalgoods.com, the online retailer that has spelled doom for hundreds of small businesses just like Razzle Dazzle DĂ©cor. Despite her misgivings, Lauren travels to Seattle to confer with the mogul, and is caught off guard when his son, John Jr., attends the meeting too. Handsome, intelligent, and deeply kind, heâ€™s perfectâ€”apart from the fact that heâ€™s part of the company threatening everything Lauren loves.
As her deadline, and Christmas, draw closer, Lauren knows that thereâ€™s more than her familyâ€™s shop at stake. Her heart is, too. But thereâ€™s no better time than the holidays to make a secret wish on the brightest star you seeâ€”and let the seasonâ€™s magic take hold . . .
