Given the tortuously hot and uncomfortable temperatures we’ve endured lately, relief in any form is welcome. Glad Tidings, a Class of ’85 romance, my holiday release from The Wild Rose Press takes place in cooler months, between Halloween and Christmas Eve.
His twenty-fifth high school reunion leaves hard-driving hospital CEO Jake Holbrook feeling he’s missing something in life. So when a special woman from his past tumbles back into his life—and his bed—Jake is determined to keep her, even if it means recruiting her to work for him.
Family practice physician Bethany Thomas knows it’s a bad idea to sleep with her late husband’s best friend—even if he is the only man she’s ever loved. Recently widowed after twenty years of marriage to the wrong man and haunted by guilt over his death, Bethany isn’t looking for an entanglement. Especially not with her future boss.
Working together makes Jake and Bethany confront their clashing philosophies to patient care, and as the holidays approach, Bethany unknowingly betrays Jake. Now Jake’s job is on the line.
Then comes a brutally cold winter night, and two young children are missing. Suddenly, the differences Jake and Bethany struggle with don’t seem so important anymore.
