She’s hiding a broken engagement.
He’s concealing his true birth heritage.
They’ll have to trust their hearts even if they’re sure love is a lie.

Now that Eva Halloway is back in her hometown of Cinnamon Bay, she has one full plate with the grand re-opening of her newly inherited boardwalk cafe and a broken engagement to hide from the town gossip mill. First, Eva must bury her bruised heart, and second, she must ban the ridiculous Cafe Amour drink from the menu. But, sexy stranger, Mac Jenssen strolls into her cafe and before she knows it, they’ve both sipped on the legendary love concoction. By the end of the day, Eva is up to her neck in a feud with a trio of matchmaking little old ladies and wondering if she can trust herself to help Mac uncover his past.

Macklin Jenssen arrives in Cinnamon Bay to search for the family who gave him up for adoption. Instead, he finds Eva, a legend about love, and a lighthouse with ties to his past. Plus, a spiced drink that is out of this world delicious. He hasn’t bargained for any of it, but he isn’t saying no to love either. In fact, the more he comes to know Eva, the more he’s considering a permanent move. Too bad she’s made up her mind about him, and the odds aren’t in his favor.

With town gossip and crazy bat-wielding locals, Eva and Mac face an uphill battle. It might be opposites attract or even fate, but they will have to learn to trust in each other and the power of love if they ever want to find their happily ever after.

Delve into a new world of romance, mystery, and magic in the quirky coastal town of Cinnamon Bay, North Carolina.

A Christmas Arrangement - Cinnamon Bay - Cover

☆ Tori ☆
Most people would move to a big city to get lost. I decided to move to a small town, Cinnamon Bay, to get lost…in the magic of Christmas.

Somehow, I’d timed it perfectly. Trust me, this was a first. My new boss at the hairdressing salon was ready to pop out a kid, and the festivities meant that the place was positively bursting with business. I moved right in. Literally. Until the owner’s nosy, hot brother found me sleeping in the stock room. We compromised and he invited me to stay at her place with him.

At first, I was afraid he was trying to pick me up. After I realized he wasn’t, I was afraid I’d lost my touch.

Just because I’d never trust another man again, didn’t mean I was completely against having one to share the holidays with. In fact, I might be just what Mr Grinch needed…for the holidays, since that’s about as long I could safely stay.

Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to stay longer. I’d love a home, but I’d grown accustomed to disappointment. I was afraid of lingering anywhere too long since Joel had vowed to always find me. Still, I was long overdue for a Christmas miracle. And this town seemed like just the place to get one.

☆ Luca ☆

My word was my bond.

I promised my sister I’d stay here and help out since she had three kids, a baby on the way, and a husband deployed overseas. I promised I’d help run the salon, keep the place afloat in her absence.

Inviting Tori to stay at the house seemed like a fair trade. I needed the help. She needed a home. Only life wasn’t fair.

Tori, if that was even her real name, was secretive, shy, and easily impressed by a small-town Christmas. Soon, she had me taking part in the festivities. When things threatened to get ugly in the form of her ex, I pretended I planned to take her hand in marriage. I was a basketball player, not an actor. Soon the lines were blurred. Everyone in town was convinced we were really and truly engaged and in love. Maybe including us.

I kept reminding myself that we were too different. It wasn’t working. All I could see was how we were the same. All I felt was how much I wanted to be with her, if I could only convince her to stop pretending and really be with me.

Take a trip to Cinnamon Bay in this Christmas for a fun and flirty magical romance.
