Love in Mistletoe Springs(2015)
A collection of stories by Lee Carver, Kimberly Rose Johnson, Lee Tobin McClain, Gail Sattler and Ginger Solomon
The Mistletoe Springs animal shelter loses their grant, endangering the lives of countless stray dogs, cats, even birds and turtles. The community attempts to save the shelter by running a Christmas in July fundraiser. Groups of volunteers scramble to get all the details together while managing their personal lives. For ten people, love gets in the way. "A Cockatoo for Two" Nikki Waldrop is given a cockatoo because her son is allergic to hairy animals. But this biology teacher needs help from the principal, who once lived in Indonesia and knows about caring for a cockatoo. When the sick bird responds with "Gimme a kiss," hearts begin to soar. "Brewed with Love" When Amber Cook meets firefighter Bryan Grant, can she overcome her deep seated fear of fire and discover true love? "Stray Gifts" Dani Cooper has vowed to focus on her four kids and stay away from strays, whether animal or human. But will she be able to resist the handsome, mysterious veteran who shows up on her doorstep looking for work...and maybe, for a home and family too? "Mistletoe Madness" To say Kayla can't function in a crowd is an understatement. The only help she can get to do her part to help the shelter is the bane of her existence, her brother's best friend who has teased and harassed her mercilessly all her life. But Drew's feelings for Kayla have suddenly changed. Can he both help the shelter, and help Kayla change her mind about him? "Mr. Christmas and Miss Scrooge" Mitch Silverton agreed to be in charge of decorating for the fundraiser. And he needs his boss, Margaret Holberg, to donate her family's vast array of decorations to make the day unforgettable. BUT... She's not sharing. Christmas is not a holiday she wants to celebrate in July, and saving the animal shelter is not high on her list of important things to do. He wants her to share more than the decorations. He wants her heart. Will he succeed in changing Miss Scrooge into Mrs. Christmas?
