A Coventry Christmas

I just finished reading a wonderful book. (thanks Becky, I was up all night reading , had to finish it.)

Coventry, Texas—a place where the locals are friendly and snow has been known to fall in December. And this year, Christmas in Coventry promises the most wonderful and magical gift of all—love!

Keelie Cannon is in danger of becoming a Scrooge. Her job at a Houston bookstore is hardly inspiring Christmas cheer—more like a need for double vodka martinis. Her surrogate mom, the rock of holiday predictability, is suddenly spending Christmas in Hawaii. So, why not grab her friends, get away from it all, and spend a nice quiet Christmas together in Coventry? It sure beats repeats of How the Grinch Stole Christmas...

Between a fractured ankle, a bawdy grandmother, and Hamlet (Keelie's suddenly under-the-weather hamster), she and the gang are in for a Christmas that is as unpredictable as it is merry.

And when Coventry's veterinarian starts making house calls to check on Hamlet, Keelie wonders if this Christmas might bring her what she's always wanted: true love...
