A Christmas Love by Kathleen Creighton
Caroline is now divorced and with her child Jodie they are arriving in North Carolina to her ex husbands cabin. He's off with his younger new wife on the west coast.
She recalls the local families and clayton is one she is not familiar with. He is an ex cop from Chicago and he helps them discover a child living in the basement. He wants to turn the child over to the authorities and she just wants to mother him herself.
They both have secrets from past hurts and are not wanting to share them just yet. They each, to themselves have expressed signs of affection without speaking words.
They spend quite a bit of time together, for the kids and it is the Christmas season and they help the children celebrate the religious part of the holiday.
