Will Mitch’s love for Piper truly heal her heart?

Deck The Halls

Retrieving the mail from his old apartment brought more than just letters for Vince Cutler. When he opened the door on the lovely Jolie Wheeler and rooms he hardly recognized, he knew he’d found the person to fix up his bare new bachelor quarters. But behind their banter, he sensed a pain that his friendship couldn’t assuage. The warm embrace of Vince’s family reminded Jolie achingly of the nephew taken from her, and the sister she refused to see. Vince’s embrace made keeping the distance between them all the more difficult. And all the while the spirit of Christmas was working within Jolie’s heart to reconnect her with her family…
and with Vince suring this very special season…
