Schoolteacher Lenore Kerrigan devotes her time to her pupils and good works. She has no use for a man or the damage he could do to her reputation.

But this holiday season, fate and an island of matchmakers have other plans. Will they accept the gift of a lifetime, or will the past steal away any chance at happiness?

  7. Well, I got 6 right, which is amazing because most were just plain eenie-meenie-miney-mo picks! (I alternated with my son’s advice when taking a multiple-choice test: “When you have no idea, pick B.” Thanks for the fun facts, Linda! “Gift from St. Nick” sounds like a fun story! And I agree with Kara about the cover…gorgeous!
