Because It's Christmas by Kathryn Shay
"BECAUSE IT'S CHRISTMAS is a super modern day retelling of the classic IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE." Painted Rock Reviews
To most people in the small town of Bayview Heights, high school principal Seth Taylor is a hero. But Seth has never forgotten the mistakes he made years ago with his students. And neither has reporter Lacey Cartwright, because one involved her brother, who's now in jail. With her grandfather pressuring her to destroy Seth in the town newspaper, Seth invites Lacey to come to the school and see what the teachers really do with kids. Attraction then love flares between these two star-crossed people. If Lacey starts to show her support--and her true feelings--for Seth, she will she lose what's left of her family?
