When Jess Brown learns that her mother is ill, she leaves a major market radio career to care for her. She returns to the airwaves of her hometown radio station, which operates more on duct tape and spirit than actual technology. Jess and her father, a country veterinarian, share a love for needy animals that is far larger than the barn—or budget—required to keep them. She longs to return to civilized radio, and vows to do so as soon as she finds a home for every last animal friend.There are other reasons to stay, like Sam Bloom, who has fled the city on a quest for the simple life. And then there’s the campaign she’s leading against a major developer who wants to put a shopping center smack-dab in the middle of town. With a deadline of Christmas Eve, time is running out…Welcome to Holiday, a town chock-full of quirky people, animals with strong opinions, and hearts as big as they come. Holiday is the first book of the homespun Welcome to Holiday series.
