Allison Lockwood and Gavin Hunt have been offered the chance to take over the Lazy Daisy Inn and Campground so their respective grandparents, the current owners, can retire and marry. It seems all too easy for Ally and Gavin to prove themselves during the six-month probationary period until they’re fighting disasters at the campground and failing at over-optimistic baking expectations.

As Ally and Gavin slowly explore their growing attraction, they help each other fight fires, endure raging storms, and share a few passionate kisses. But there’s more than fires to fight when Ally’s grandfather disapproves of their budding romance and Ally is convinced Gavin has a girlfriend in the wings…a girlfriend expecting his baby!

Ride along as the two unlikely innkeepers figure out how they fit in their new life and learn the lesson taught by the Daisies in the Driveway.

CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2018 FEATURING AUTHOR LAURAINE HENDERSON @lovingthebook

 

 

 

 

Lauraine Henderson lives with her husband, dog and cat on 68 acres of woodland 40 miles north of Portland, Oregon. After growing up in Oregon, they moved their family of three children to Utah. From there they moved to Hawaii and Arizona, finally coming back to Oregon in 2015. Their three children, two girls and a boy are all grown and live across the United States.

After being a professional bookkeeper for over twenty years, she turned her hobby of writing into her first published novel in 2016. She loves to write inspirational romance and romantic comedy and hopes her readers will be both entertained and uplifted by her stories. When she’s not writing, she’s working her way through online university, loves to paint (watercolors, oils, and acrylics), sew, knit, crochet, make beaded jewelry, and read (of course!).

Snippet

Had she ever seen George’s eyes sparkle like that? Maybe when he’d been angry. But he wasn’t angry now and Kathryn pulled in a deep breath as she found herself drawn into George’s deep brown eyes and matched their intensity.

Time slowed. “Oh!” Kathryn’s foot slipped and she fell back, landing softly in the cold blanket of white. George relinquished his snowball, followed her into the snow, and held himself above her while he shook cold, white crystals from his knit hat over her face.

“Stop! Please. You win.” Kathryn laughed. “I give!”

“What do you give, Kathryn? What do I win?”

George asked so seriously, Kathryn had to look carefully to make sure he was still teasing.

“What do you want, George?” Flirting wasn’t really her style, but he brought out the tease in her.

George’s eyes flitted over her face, stopping at her eyes and then moving on to her mouth. Her lips parted of their own accord and George leaned in.

“Oomph!” George grunted when three little bodies all jumped on him and pushed him against Kathryn. “I’m sorry. Are you hurt?” he asked in her ear, barely above a whisper.

“I’m great,” she answered, the eyes glimmering back at him with unfulfilled promises.

George licked his lips and pushed the kids off his back. Kathryn was fairly certain she heard him say, “Later,” before he turned and pretended to attack his assailants.
