Keep Me Warm at Christmas – Published 2021
“Hollywood starlet Tia Beckett knows one moment can change your life. Her career had been on the fast track before a near-fatal accident left her with a debilitating facial scar. Certain her A-lister dreams are over, she agrees to house-sit at her producer’s secluded estate in Silver Springs. It’s the escape from the limelight Tia’s been craving, until she discovers she’s not the only houseguest for the holidays. And her handsome new roomie is impossible to ignore.
Artist Seth Turner has good reason to keep his distance. Losing his wife after only a few years of marriage has left a deep scar, even if he is still happy to spend a semester teaching art classes at the New Horizons Boys Ranch for troubled teens. Despite nursing her own wounds, Tia finds her curiosity piqued by enigmatic Seth, whom she recognizes as something of a kindred soul. Maybe spending Christmas together could be another game changer for both of them—this time, for good.” – Goodreads
Thank you to Harper Audio for the audio copy of this holiday gem!
This was a quick listen, but it wasn’t your typical happy holiday read. Seth and Tia are both struggling with their pasts, what they’ve lost, and coming to terms with their new realities. This book is heavy, but good.
I loved seeing a friendship develop between these two before it turned romantic. While it’s part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone.
