(A Whisper Shore Christmas Story)
Librarian Pennilynn Baxter likes life the way she likes her bookshelves—neat and tidy, arranged just so. Niggling doubts aside, getting engaged to the nice man she’s been dating for two years is the obvious next step, right?
But on the snowy evening of the expected proposal, Penn discovers someone’s been squatting in the old Victorian house she inherited from her grandparents. She finds herself back in picturesque Whisper Shore, Michigan, facing off with an intruder named Will who may not be what he seems.
As charming as the house he’s taken over, Will pushes past the reserve that has kept Penn from living the brave life she craves. And one December night in the house she used to love in the town she used to adore changes everything.
**ONE DECEMBER NIGHT is a FREE short story companion to the full-length novel HERE TO STAY.**
In this delightful companion novella to Here to Stay, Melissa Tagg brings us back to Whisper Shore, a place I so want it to be real! Pennilynn Baxter is a librarian that does not like to take risks, but she does not know that her life is about to change right before Christmas. She just needs to listen to her heart and understand her deepest desires... with the help of a perfect stranger!
What a lovely short story! I am in love with Ms. Tagg’s writing style and her characters. She manages to create sweet and beautiful stories with simplicity, and by telling us the magic of love and friendship. This one is very fun and cute, and I really enjoyed reading it. If you have never read anything by this author, I would recommend to get to her novels as soon as you can! I am so looking forward to her next books!
