Does a small town bakery offer more than sweet holiday treats, or has its owner found a clever marketing ploy?
Natasha’s favorite way of spending Christmas is on a beach with a cocktail, far away from the mistletoe and cheer she doesn’t believe in. She’s not happy when her boss sends her to the small town of Pinedale to investigate the legend of the Christmas Cupid:
In the Magic Christmas Bakery, customers have fallen in love while sharing sweet treats, for generations.
Natasha is prepared to uncover a scam—until she meets Ivy, third generation owner of the bakery and the current Christmas Cupid. Instead of a fraud, Natasha discovers seasonal delicacies and meets the couples who were blessed by the bakery’s matchmaking magic.
As the story changes, is it possible that a cynic like her could fall for a woman who is all about helping others find The One?
