The Clause in Christmas : A Hopeful, Holiday Romance

Rachael Bloome
 An unexpected inheritance. A pesky clause in the will. And 25 days to avoid falling in love...

Cassie Hayward hates Christmas. Especially this year.

No job. Flat broke. And an ex most definitely on the naughty list.

The unexpected inheritance of a charming Victorian cottage in the small town of Poppy Creek may be the Christmas miracle Cassie needs. Except for one itty-bitty problem: a clause in the will.

To inherit the house, Cassie must complete a series of festive tasks every day in December leading up to Christmas. All overseen by the handsome, Christmas-loving lawyer Luke Davis.

Luke is as strong and steady as the bespoke furniture he crafts as a hobby. He has to be. Stepping into his late father’s shoes as the town lawyer comes with a sleigh full of responsibilities. Which means the captivating stranger collecting her inheritance is a distraction he can’t afford.

As the unlikely pair complete the daily tasks, their hearts begin to soften. But will the wounds from their pasts—and an unexpected visitor—steal what little hope they have left?

♥ If you love opposites attract, close-knit communities, and fun holiday traditions, you’ll fall head-over-heels for this heartfelt and hopeful romance. ♥

Each book in the feel-good, small-town series is a sweet and heartwarming read that’s much more fun when read in order.
