Charles Brewster, history professor, curmudgeon and resident of Boston, wants to avoid Christmas altogether. He figures a prison town should be quiet over the holidays—except he's thinking of the wrong Leavenworth! Charles and Emily arrange to swap houses for the holiday. So Emily goes to Boston—and discovers her daughter has gone to Florida. And Charles arrives in Leavenworth to discover that it's Santa's village! Meanwhile, Emily's friend Faith Kerrigan travels to Leavenworth to visit her and instead finds Charles the grinch. Then Charles's brother, Ray, shows up in Boston to discover that he isn't there—but Emily is. Through all the mix-ups and misunderstandings, romance emerges in unexpected ways. Because everything changes at Christmas! Originally published as When Christmas Comes. Also included is a bonus story, The Forgetful Bride!

Has a bit of language and a sexual situation; would rate it pg-13 if a movie; not as clean as the Hallmark movie version, but still a pretty clean read Read full review
