I haven't been home for Christmas since I lost my brother, and there are reasons I shouldn't be here now. One of them is named Raine Edwards—she's been my best friend since we were kids, but now she's also my brother's widow. What kind of holiday homecoming is waiting for me if Raine finds out that my silence these past years has really meant that I'm accidentally in love with her? That she's a sweet temptation wrapped up in my Christmas memories with Jesse and the life they shared?
But maybe it's finally time to lay it all on the line. A Christmas kiss under the mistletoe could be the perfect way to show her what she means to me. Memories of my brother and what I lost have kept me away for years, but maybe it's time to admit that loving Raine is the thing that'll keep me here.
