One Snowy Eve(2019)
(A book in the Sleeping With The Scrooge Short Story series)
A Novella by Alexx Andria
Oliver Thorne, a small-town detective in Snowdon, Massachusetts, is about as bah-humbug as one can get about the Christmas season.His life is going nowhere until he meets Harmony Bishop, a quirky, irritatingly perky businesswoman with a passion for all things Kris Kringle and an obsession with Hallmark movies.
Oliver takes an instant disliking to Harmony but when Harmony's shop is ransacked and her livelihood threatened, Oliver takes the case.
Harmony is all about sugar cookies, popcorn garland and hot cocoa; Oliver is hard-headed, bitter and broken inside.
The sparks fly when these polar opposites are thrown together. Will Oliver solve the case and wash his hands of Harmony or will Harmony help him rediscover his lost Christmas spirit through the healing power of love?
One Snowy Eve might just change everything...
Ho ho . . . no?
It's the holiday season, and the Flirt Club authors have a flirty new short story collaboration to deck your halls.

Hang those stockings, trim that tree, and get your hot cocoa ready - the Sleeping With the Scrooge series isn't to be missed!
Man, the woman was into Christmas that was for sure.
It was as if Christmas had vomited over every surface, spreading glitter and ribbon everywhere it went. And don't forget the twinkling lights, a voice reminded him.
God, yes, the lights.
She was practically elf-sized, how did she manage to hang all that stuff along the ceiling? A rough guess put her at about five feet, two inches. Her long blonde hair curled in giant, lazy swirls that bounced when she walked, that effervescent smile out of place with the devastation all around her.
Misplaced positivity grated on his nerves.
Especially when it seemed dangerous to ignore the facts. Someone was out to hurt the tiny shop owner. That much was obvious. It wasn't in him to close the book on something that nagged at his gut.
As much as he loathed the idea of spending more time in that Christmas-drenched shop, he knew his gut was rarely wrong. And he didn't trust anyone else with his cases.
So that left him with the only option open - spend a little more time with the elf-sized woman and figure out who was responsible for that break-in.
Before they came back and did some real damage to Miss Bishop.
