Amanda Wellsby is known at her boarding house and throughout town for her wonderful desserts, but on Christmas Eve, her special apple cream cake disappears. She catches Marshal Everett Bodine--the man she's loved forever--with a piece of the missing cake and accuses him of thievery. But Everett is innocent. Has Amanda ruined all chances of winning his heart?
They set a trap for the thief and catch a starving sister and brother. Orphans with nowhere to go. Suddenly, Amanda has something she had given up hope of every experiencing--two children in her care. If she could win Everett's love as well, her Christmas would be the best ever.
