Individual Book Title: Santa’s Wish

Author: Jan Scarbrough


 

 

Blurb for Santa’s Wish

 

Roz Henry’s world has collapsed. She’s lost her boyfriend and her job. Her grandfather is sick. Christmas with her grandparents brings her face-to-face with her old boyfriend, the boy next door.

 

Cooper Brown has his own problems dealing with the death of his wife. Forced together during holiday festivities, they slowly rekindle their love. Will Christmas magic help them overcome Roz’s career ambitions and Cooper’s grief, and bring them together for a second chance at love?

 

 

 

Excerpt A: Santa’s Wish

 

When she arrived at her grandparents’ house, she noticed a plumber’s panel truck parked in the gravel driveway almost up to the detached garage. Roz pulled in behind it. She was early. Three days early to be exact. Grandma Tress wouldn’t expect her, so Roz thought it best to ring the front doorbell. She didn’t want to startle the old woman by walking in unannounced. Maybe she should have called in advance, but she’d been so upset that she hadn’t been thinking clearly. She’d just thrown a few things in her suitcase and got on the road.

 

Her grandparents’ home was a two-story clapboard house, built in the1900’s, with a pitched roof and a front porch right on the street. She and Grandpa Henry used to sit side-by-side in the porch swing and count cars as they came down the street. The old porch swing was gone now, a relic of hot summer days long ago.

 

Her grandmother came at the sound of the ringing bell and drew the door open. “My goodness, Rosalind! You’re early.”

 

“I had time off,” Roz said, not wanting to admit she’d been fired—or “laid off” as she’d been told.

 

“I’m so glad to see you!”

 

Pulled into Grandma Tress’s arms, Roz felt how frail the gray-haired woman had become. She still wore her hair long and parted down the middle, like her hippie days, and a loose-fitting print dress decorated with yellow daisies.

 

“Mrs. Henry, you’re going to need a new disposal.” A man came around the corner out of the dining room and into the living room. He stopped dead in his tracks.

 

Cooper. Roz dropped her arms as her grandmother turned around. Her gaze met Cooper’s for a long sober moment. He nodded. Then he focused on Grandma Tress. One mystery solved. Cooper still lived in town. Maybe she would get a chance to put things right.
