**3.5 stars**

This is a very quick Christmas romance. The main characters are both coming from lives that have had major disappointments. They both don't know if they will ever find love again.

Cate is a reporter working on her next assignment, stressing about upcoming furloughs, and struggling to make ends meet as a single mother. Lost in her work, a man asks if he can sit with her for a cup of coffee. She didn't realize that it was an executive from the paper, one of the villains in her mind.

This is a nice feel-good Christmas story, with the characters taking a dip into their pasts and using what they find to make the present better. The writer has a smooth, easy-to-read style and invites the reader to like her characters in a subtle manner. There's a lot of talking heads here, with blocks of dialogue without tags or beats, so the reader's major insight into the characters becomes what they say, not less they're doing or thinking. A good pick-me-up for when you're down.
