Meghan Castle is a real Scrooge about the holidays ... until she finds an abandoned baby in her store on Christmas Eve. Change is certainly in the air – especially when late shopper Rick Wallman walks in with yet another delightful holiday surprise.
Meghan has to take the baby home — that or call Social Services on Christmas Eve. Rick goes with her to help shop for baby supplies and winds up spending the night.
Meghan and Rick, though, each have secrets — one of which could destroy the fragile future they begin to build together.
A VISION OF SUGARPLUMS was the Midwest Fiction Writers’ choice for Best Contemporary Novella of 1996.
This was a cute story even if totally unrealistic and a little heavy on the adjectives/flowery language. I figured out the "secret" before it was revealed, but you don't read romance novellas for their unexpected plot twists. As of this moment, it's a free read so if you have a Kindle or are willing to read on your computer, it's a risk free read. Grade: B-
