Tessa left Apple Valley many years ago rather than watch the man she loved marry her sister. When her sister dies suddenly, Tessa finds herself the guardian of Alex, a 10 year old with autism and the owner of a dilapidated Victorian she doesn’t want. Her plan is to clean up the house and sell it before taking Alex to live with her on the East Coast where she has made a life.
But her Aunt is throwing up road blocks every step of the way, and when Cade, the man she once loved starts showing up she finds herself struggling to keep it together.
The House on Main Street is pretty damned special. It’s everything I want from a Christmas book, but it’s a whole lot more. Well written, interesting characters and story. It’s the first book by Shirlee McCoy I’ve read but it won’t be the last.
Many thanks to Kensington and Netgalley for providing me with this ARC.
