Noelle Wentworth doesn't mind getting away from St. Augustine to fill in at her ailing aunt's candle shop. A few weeks in Snowing Rock will help her get past the humiliating memory lapse that ruined an important piano concert - and, ultimately, her marriage to her overbearing duet partner.
She's mentally rehearsing for her comeback performance when the bus she's riding in slides off an icy mountain road.
And one deep, calming voice emerges from the confusion to slow her racing heart - right before his ruggedly handsome face kicks it back into allegro.
Gabe Waters is usually prepared for anything - as a professional stuntman, his life depends on it - but nothing prepared him for Noelle, the unattainable high school crush whose bravery saved him from more than just a bully's flying fist. There's no hint she recognizes him, but Gabe knows that face, those eyes...and he sees something that wasn't there before. Distrust and apprehension.
Their unexpected attraction kindles something as warm and sweet as a holiday candle. But the weight of their pasts could turn the promise of love to ashes.

Sweet Christmastime story!
I would listen to this sweet story again. It was nice to see Noelle learn to trust again. Learning to face and overcome fears is a good lesson. The handsome hero wasn't bad either.
There were many memorable moments in this story. I liked when Noelle stood up to her ex-husband. I also liked Noelle's return to Snowing Rock. I can't say too much without spoilers.
Noelle was my favorite performance. If I were reading the book, I think I would have found her a bit self-centered. Liz Beachel made Noelle seem more self-protective and gave her a more compassionate feel.
Sweet Christmastime Story! Romance, Trust and Overcoming Fears.
I loved that the characters were complex, very real people with real issues that needed to be worked through.
