Gift of the Heart, my Christmas novella, is set in my home town and is about ordinary people who do extraordinary things...like fall in love.
Amy Wilson struggles to make a home for herself and her small son in the Northern California town of Riverton. Widowed and alone, and saddled with debt from her husband’s failed business, she vows to pay off his creditors herself and remain independent from her overbearing in-laws.
Shay McHugh is dissatisfied with his life. At thirty-three, he has a home on the river which he has just remodeled, a white Porsche, a powerboat, and a position as manager of Riverton’s ValuKing Supermarket. But lately he finds life doesn’t offer the fulfillment he craves. Something is lacking. When he meets Amy, he has an overwhelming desire to protect her, which is exactly the thing Amy has been escaping. Can the two set aside their differences and make room for love?
Review: "Where do I start? I love this novella! This is the first time I have read something by Suzanne Barrett and I fell in love with her writing style...have added her to my must read authors list for future releases. I give it 5 stars, as I couldn’t find any fault with this novella." ~Booked Up Reviews
