A vintage Christmas novel lost. A romance found.

It’s Christmastime, and Tabitha Townsend is desperate to keep her personal shopping business, Twelve Days, afloat. Her only hope is finding a one-of-a-kind vintage novel for a wealthy client who demands total secrecy. Sigh-worthy bookstore owner, Sam, could be key to her success.

Sam Bartlett, widower and owner of Angels Landing Bookstore, can’t keep his inventory of used books stocked this Christmas, thanks to competition from gorgeous but exasperating Tabitha Townsend. When an auction unearths a coveted prize with deep meaning for Sam, sparks fly.

Things heat up even more when the matchmaking mayor pairs them at the town festival, and the chemistry between them is allowed to develop. Will their rivalry over the book pull them together or drive them apart in this holiday romance?

My Review: 5 Stars
Sugarplum Falls is a throwback-to-the-past kind of town and the vintage feel of this charmingly sweet Christmas romance is reminiscent of simpler times. This type of setting with this type of story make me feel cozy, secure, and content.
Sam and Tabitha have a tumultuous relationship, as they always seem to in competition. But that doesn't stop the sparks from igniting and developing into something sweet and tender. 
Tabitha is the type of woman who has "a deep love for preserving the past and a serious commitment to other people's happiness" and it was a joy to watch her use those talents to settle into her business and personal relationships. 
Sam comes across as an antiquated man, but his enthusiasm for books and kindness make him an endearing character. 
The matchmaking, rivalry, and attraction brought this story to life and I loved it.
Content: mild romance
