As part of an elaborate birthday gift from her sister, Karynn Michaels gets a pedicure that includes a bright, frivolous bell on each toe—and a prediction for each of the next ten days. Always quiet and sensible, Karynn finds the whole thing ridiculous. But it’s just for fun, and she is, after all, on vacation to have fun—at Christmas Inn, where bells are a predominant theme.
The same day, she comes face to face with Daniel Sheridan—the male standard by which she’s measured, and found lacking, every man she’s dated since Daniel walked away during their senior year of high school. It’s mere coincidence that the first prediction made by her pedicurist said she’d come into contact with someone from her past…isn’t it?
A widower, Daniel is at the Hope Creek, Tennessee resort with his adorable little girl and her nanny, who’s clearly on a mission to be the next Mrs. Sheridan. Despite the yearnings of her heart, Karynn is the furthest thing from a cowgirl, and refuses to wrangle for a man. She should have stayed in Tullahoma, where life was predictable and she didn’t have to deal with ringing bells, jealous nannies—or a handsome airline pilot who could so easily fly away with her heart…again.
