After losing her parents in a cruise accident, Marnie Hawklin has made her life extremely routine and predictable. She's also ended up distant from her sister Tessa, who quit talking to the family years earlier. One holiday season, Marnie finds herself pressured to help serve Christmas Eve dinners at a local community center. How will this one spontaneous act change her holiday... and her life?
Zane Brighton opened up Marnie Hawklin's eyes to the possibility of love when they met in A SPONTANEOUS KIND OF HOLIDAY. In this follow-up collection of three short stories, Marnie struggles with taking those next steps toward meeting Zane, despite the encouragement of her friend Sophia. Distractions get in Marnie's way. Will Marnie and Zane be brought closer together or farther apart?
Marnie's newfound cousin Blake encourages her and Sophia to meet his childhood friend Suzette, who runs a coffee shop and now stages poetry readings. Sophia agrees to come, and Marnie reluctantly gets Zane to come along to an event. The next morning, they hear an employee is found dead and they are called in as witnesses... and the outcome may affect their relationships forever.
Before Marnie and Zane could embark on mysteries together, they first needed to find each other on the difficult to navigate road to romance. This collects their first meeting around Christmas through Leap Year and their struggle to get together in the previously released SPONTANEOUS KIND OF HOLIDAY, SPONTANEOUS KIND OF ROMANCE, and SPONTANEOUS KIND OF MYSTERY in a convenient collection.
