He was her best friend. It was perfect—until she fell in love.
Marco is the best friend a girl could ever want. He’s such a good friend, in fact, that Lydia longs for more. She knows that it’s hopeless, so she takes charge of her life and sets out to put distance between them. Otherwise, she risks pining away for the rest of her life all alone, like her mother once did. So when a guy in one of Lydia’s college classes asks her out, she sees her big chance to get over Marco.
Marco has breezed through his love life, but the rest of it hasn’t been quite so breezy. He was orphaned at ten, and his older brother Theo raised him. Now eighteen, Marco and his brother own the Silva Brothers’ Brewpub, where Marco works the bar and charms the ladies. But his old pain-avoidance tactics have caught up with him. He and his best friend Lydia have grown close—too close. By the time he realizes he’s in over his head, she finds someone to date. He didn’t see that coming.
In the small coastal town of Pine Harbor, Lydia’s Christmas wish could come true, but she’ll never know it.
