What do you get when you add a woman going through a divorce, a cat named Angel, a dog named Neville, and a man who just wants to be left alone for the holidays? A delightful holiday romance that will brighten your day and warm your heart.
A year after a difficult marital separation, fifty-six-year-old Helen wants to escape town and spend her holiday away from everyone who knows her or her ex-husband.
When her friend Sylvia calls from Sunshine Bay to ask her to cat-sit Angel, Helen jumps at the chance for a peaceful holiday away from everything she has known.
All is well until she meets the neighbors: Neville, a devilish Westie determined to escape his yard to pursue Angel, and Joe, Neville's grumpy, reluctant dog-sitter, who makes Helen's heart beat a little faster whenever he's around.
Joe is spending the holidays alone this year except for his son's West Highland terrier, Neville, a dog that hasn't met an obstacle he can't dig under or squeeze through.
Neville's antics are interfering with Joe's ability to get his work done. Worse, Neville has attracted the attention of the new neighbor, Helen, a bewitching woman Joe is finding hard to ignore.
The more Helen and Joe try to keep Neville happy and out of trouble, the more sparks fly between them. Will the pair solve the problem of Neville and be able to have the peaceful holiday they both crave? Or with Neville's help, will they see they belong together?
