THE MISTLE TOE PROMISE (RICHARD PAUL EVANS)
"Elise Dutton dreads the arrival of another holiday season. Three years earlier, her husband cheated on her with her best friend, resulting in a bitter divorce that left her alone broken, and distrustful.
Then, one November day, a stranger approaches Elise in the mall food court. Though she recognizes the man from her office building, Elise has never formally met him. Tired of spending the holidays alone, the man offers her a proposition. For the next eight weeks - until the evening of December 24th - he suggests that they pretend to be a couple. He draws up a contract with four rules:
1. No deep, probing personal questions
2. No drama
3. No telling anyone the truth about the relationship
4. The contract is void on Christmas Day
The lonely Elise surprises herself by agreeing to the idea. As the charade progresses, the safety of her fake relationship begins to mend her badly broken heart. But just as Elise begins to find joy again, her long-held secret threatens the emerging romance. And she might not be the only one with a secret."
Richard has once again outdone himself with THE MISTLETOE PROMISE. You just can't help but fall in love with Richard's stories and this one was so unique, I just couldn't put it down. I could have read it in one sitting but forced myself to make it last over two days. This comes highly recommended, you won't be disappointed. It's a feel good story for sure and at this time of year we can all use some feel good.
