Christmas in Abundance: A Novella (The Abundance Series)

by Sally Bayless

An art teacher avoiding Christmas. A single dad planning a holiday light show extravaganza. A yuletide clash between neighbors that might spark a dazzling romance.

Lanie Phillips has a quiet holiday planned. So quiet, in fact, that the only sounds in the house where she’s staying should be the clicks of her computer keyboard and the occasional bark from a chocolate Labrador retriever. No joyous choirs of angels, no jolly laughs from Santa, and no jingle bells–nothing to distract her from her master’s thesis or bring up painful Christmas memories.

But for the single dad who’s her closest neighbor, simple holiday decorations just won’t do. Kyle Mattox is determined to give his five-year-old daughter the best Christmas ever–one that includes an outdoor display lit with fifty thousand lights, activated in time to music shared through four giant loudspeakers.

When Lanie comes to complain that she can’t write with the lights flashing and carols blasting, Kyle realizes that–unknown to her–their circuits have crossed in the past. If he wants his daughter happy, he needs to keep that information to himself, keep the show running, and keep his distance from Lanie.
