This is a brand new author for me. I was excited that it is set in North Carolina at Christmas. When I first started reading it, I felt like I missed reading a book before this one because it seemed to me there was some back story for Annie that I was missing. However, the more I read the more I realized that part of the story was being slowly revealed. I thought the author did an excellent job with the interactions between the two main characters. Overall, I really enjoyed this novella.
