Blessings on State Street


Can two heartbroken strangers find hope and healing

in the most Christmassy town on the coast?


Grieving widow Abigail Preston wants nothing to do with Christmas this year. When she discovers her late husband owned a waterfront home in the quaint, cozy community of Blessings Bay, she figures it’s the perfect holiday hideout. Except, there’s one problem: An unexpected—and distractingly handsome—houseguest.


After a medical discharge and a broken engagement, former US Air Force pilot Logan Matthews accepts the only job he can get—caretaker of his friend’s investment property in a quiet, hole-in-the-wall town. The confirmed bachelor has zero interest in retiring his reclusive ways… until a beautiful, Taser-toting intruder barges into his life—and his home—with plans to stick around until after the new year.


The unlikely roommates agree to coexist under two conditions: stay out of each other’s way and absolutely, under no circumstances, celebrate Christmas.


When the magic of the season meddles with their Scrooge-like plan, the terms of their agreement prove easier said than done.


Will the town’s infectious Christmas spirit—and a chance encounter with a mysterious boy named Max—melt their hardened hearts? Or are some wounds too deep—and too closely guarded—to heal?


From the USA Today bestselling author of the beloved Poppy Creek series, discover an idyllic seaside town where even the most downtrodden souls find hope and a happily ever after.
