"Charlotte Bass may be a simple country girl, but she doesn't plan to have her heart broken twice by the same man. A Christmas ago, she'd fallen for the sophisticated city ways of Shaun Matheson, hoping to become his wife. But that was before he abruptly left town for Boston and his rich, city-girl fiancee. Now, Shaun has come back to the small town of Peacham, Vermont, and Charlotte intends to let him see that she's completely forgotten him by becoming engaged to another man. Shaun could never explain the reasons that drove him from Charlotte's side. If only he'd defied his disapproving father, Charlotte would not be marrying the only bachelor left in town, a boor who doesn't deserve her. Can Shaun allow Charlotte to spend the rest of her life with a man she despises? It will take a Christmas miracle to stop her from going through with it. . . .and some old-fashioned courting to win her heart again-only this time, Shaun knows it will be for keeps."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
