This heartwarming holiday tale from internationally bestselling author Fern Michaels epitomizes the magic of Christmas: a holiday homecoming, a bucolic setting, the remembrance of loved ones past and present, and the discovery of a future that, like the perfect gift, is as satisfying as it is surprising…Joy Preston misses her beloved late grandmother dearly. But when she learns the terms of Nana’s will, she’s shocked–and more than a little irked. Joy moved to Colorado years ago and is now CEO of a successful nail polish company. Her life is in Denver. How can Nana have expected her to give that up, even temporarily, to take over a bed and breakfast in North Carolina for six months? Still, there’s no denying Heart and Soul’s charm, especially at holiday time . . . The B&B is always elaborately decorated for the season, with themed guest rooms and dazzling lawn displays created for the annual Parade of Homes competition. The entire town takes part in the festivities, and soon, Joy is too, letting her reservations melt away. Yet there’s another reason for Heart and Soul’s popularity . . . Rumor has it that, during the holidays, guests can be reunited with the spirit of a loved one who’s passed on. Joy is skeptical, yet she feels her Nana’s influence all around her–perhaps even indulging in a little matchmaking between Joy and a handsome estate attorney who just might inspire a magical new beginning . . .
