Christmas Present by Linda Joyce

My Newest Book

Christmas Present:
A Junction, Georgia Story

Pottery artist Chelsea Cooper meets celebrity chef Zachary Tanner and the chemistry between them is crazy! But for her, Christmases past are old memories. Future Christmases look bleak. Will Chelsea recognize the only Christmas that counts is the present one?

Zachary Tanner might be new to Junction, Georgia, new to discovering more family, however, since his mother died, he’s not new to living life in the present. When he first meets Chelsea, he’s drawn to her and each encounter afterward confirms the attraction is growing into something special…if only she’ll let it.

Will Chelsea share this Christmas with him?
