Tori has been in an abusive relationship that led to her pack up her things and skips town in secret, in fear that the now ex-boyfriend will find her. Although she has little to her name, she has picked a town on the ocean’s edge hoping that the serenity helps her heal from the abuse. Arriving just in time for her interview with the owner of a salon, Tori gets the job and her life instantly begins to change for the better.
Although this is definitely a feel-good, perfect ending, fairytale story, it does warm the heart and adds to the Christmas spirit. A very enjoyable Christmas novella – oh, and did I mention there are dachshund puppies in it?
