Until Kelan walks into her shop with his model good looks and a box of his grandparents' love letters that melt her heart.

CHRISTMAS IN SWEETLAND
Savannah Cantrell may have been born in the small town of Sweetland, Maryland, but she’s not sure it’s where she belongs. In the meantime, she’s housesitting for a family friend and trying to deal with the rambunctious puppy she inherited from her grandmother. As luck would have it, her handsome neighbor is a former reality television dog guru.
Luke Raveen has had enough of being in the spotlight, now he’s back in the cozy Eastern Shore town where he spent one summer of his childhood, attempting to start over and blend in. What better way to do that than to join the neighborhood Christmas decorating contest? At least that’s what his pretty neighbor suggests. His only problem with that is he’s never done “Christmas” before, and certainly not the way the town of Sweetland does it.
If you’ve enjoyed feel-good romance movies on television, then you’ll love Lacey’s heartwarming stories that will have you laughing and longing for chocolate and puppies!
