Holly Bough Cottage by Cindy Gunderson


Holly Bough Cottage 
by Cindy Gunderson


The last thing Liv was planning to do on December 9th was move back to her home town after finalizing a divorce. Facing the possibility of spending Christmas alone—or even worse, at her over-eager parent’s—she booked a two-week stay at the first affordable, well-rated winter retreat she could find: Holly Bough Cottage in the Colorado Rockies. With her interior design business slowing down over the holidays, Liv can practically smell the pine trees and warm apple cider, but most importantly? She won’t have to face anyone for at least fourteen days. 
Jonah wasn’t planning on being anywhere but home for Christmas, but when the owners of the Cottages posted on a community board that their handyman injured himself, he decided to pull them a solid. It didn’t hurt that they were offering a free stay and double the daily rate he usually made as a middle-school science teacher. 
When Liv discovers that the man who came to replace her thermostat is staying in the next cottage over, she finds herself looking for opportunities to sit on the porch while answering emails. Even if it is thirty below. 
Jonah, battling ghosts of his own, can’t help but walk the long way to the office in the hopes of catching a moment with her. With Liv's heart still raw from past wounds and Jonah hiding a past life that could ruin any budding relationship, their initial attraction doesn't seem to stand a chance. 
Will their unexpected meeting during the most magical of times be enough to open their hearts to loving and trusting again? If you adore cozy Christmas memories, down-to-earth characters, and sweet romance, you'll love Gunderson's heartwarming holiday tale. Buy now to embrace the holiday magic today! 



When he said ‘a minute,’ he wasn’t kidding. Before she could even pull her food from the paper bag, fill a glass with water, and settle in at the kitchen table to take her first bite, a knock sounded at the door, and she rushed to open it. Twisting the handle, she pulled it toward her and sucked in a breath. It was him—the rugged guy from the grocery store. 

“Can I come in?” he asked, and Liv noticed his hair was damp. It glistened in the porch light, and was most likely beginning to freeze in the cold air. 

“Yes, of course. Sorry,” Liv said, tripping over herself as she moved out of his way.
