Annie McCade moved back to her home town to help her brother after her sister-in-law died, leaving him a single father to his two young children. She has been trying to help them hold it together for the past year while watching him struggle with the loss. When his drinking lands him in jail for a month, she takes in the twins. She has everything planned out; if she keeps to her schedule, she can take care of the twins, do her job, and finish all of the blankets she volunteered to make for a local charity. Then her former childhood friend and new boss shows up ahead of his extended family, the chef he hired is a no show, and she is running herself ragged trying to help everyone else.
RaeAnne Thayne’s (Amazon affiliate link) Sleigh Bells Ring is a feel good light romance. There isn’t a huge conflict creating a lot of tension. The characters in the book are genuinely trying to help each other out. If you are looking for a little light holiday reading without the drama, this is for you.
