This is my first book by this author but will not be my last. I found this book to be funny but yet emotional. Our heroine, Maggie (who is a single mother) is having the first Christmas with out her daughter (is now an adult daughter) and her father. She runs into our hero/leading man, Marco Cavelli by way of running into their bikes together. This puts Marco with a broken leg and his family wanting Maggie to help him out as he would be alone. This starts their story of helping each other during a hard and lonely time and how their love grew.
