About the Book
I’m in a jam. Or should I say stuck in shortbread dough?I inherited my beloved grandpa’s bakeshop and have his golden baking fingers, but now the shop’s finances are dwindling. Without some dough, a plan, and a booth in this year’s Christmas Festival, my family’s cherished shop won’t make it.
Cue Jesse—handsome business coach extraordinaire. He knows his stuff, but he’s so grumpy he makes Scrooge look like a Christmas angel. He tells me I’m impulsive and lack focus. I tell him I’m just passionate about the bakeshop. But while Jesse pushes me, I see glimpses of his kindness, and I melt like butter.
My heart would break if I lost grandpa’s legacy by falling for my business coach. It’s time for me to step up and save the bakeshop I love so much. But how long can I stay away from Jesse and his surprisingly gooey center?

About the Author
Deb Goodman’s obsession with the written word started at age three, when she realized the old-timey newsprint wallpaper in her family’s bathroom had actual words on it. The only problem? By the time she learned to read a couple of years later, the wallpaper had been replaced with something else—boring, non-worded wallpaper—and to this day, she still doesn’t know what it said.
Now, she and her husband and four children live in Utah. They love sports, music, and doing slightly insulting, pretend voices for their little shorkie, Mavis.
Deb writes funny, small-town romance that you won’t need to shield your kids’ eyes from. Billionaires, friends-to-more, enemies-to-more, cowboys, fake relationships…there’s something for everyone here!
Writing lovey dovey books comes naturally to Deb since, to her, there’s nothing better than reading and writing about how two people fall in love.
