Happy Friday, friends! Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Mine (hopefully) includes a lot of reading. Always the best kind of weekend. Thanks to Hoarding Books for hosting us. Be sure and jump over there to read what others are sharing this week.
This week, I’m sharing the first line from a book you may not have heard about yet. Kyle Hunter and I roomed together a couple years ago at the ACFW Conference here in Nashville so I got to know her a bit. When she reached out and told me she’d published her first book, I was thrilled. One December gives you a great peek into what living in Paris for a year would be like.
About the book
Nikki has loved Mike for as long as she can remember (as early as age seven!) Mike has his own past hurts to resolve, having lost both parents in an accident when he was fourteen. He’s tried to escape those painful memories by leaving New York and starting a new life on the West Coast. New facts indicate, years later, that his parents’ deaths might not have been an accident.
At Christmas Mike comes back to New York for the first time in three years. He and Nikki rekindle the friendship they had as children and share their newfound faith. Under a Christmas moon romantic sparks fly . . . but their mutual attraction takes an unexpected detour.
Nikki is devastated, believing her one chance for a relationship with Mike is over. She impulsively takes a one-year teaching opportunity in Paris, so that she can face her own fears and get over Mike.
If Mike and Nikki run away, how can they find each other again?
