Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Pine Hollow has everything Ally Gilmore could wish for in a holiday break: gently falling snow in a charming small town and time with her family. Then she learns some Grinch has pulled the funding for her family's rescue shelter, and now she has only four weeks to find new homes for a dozen dogs! But when she confronts her Scroogey councilman nemesis, Ally finds he's far more reasonable -- and handsome -- than she ever expected. As the guardian of his dog-obsessed ten-year-old niece, Ben West doesn't have time to build a cuddly reputation. But he does feel guilty about the shelter closing. So he proposes a truce with Ally, agreeing to help her adopt out the pups. As the two spend more time together, the town's gossip is spreading faster than Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. And soon Ben is hoping he can convince Ally that Pine Hollow is her home for the holidays. . . and the whole year through" --

    What kind of Ebenezer Scrooge cuts the funding for an animal shelter right before Christmas? This is what Ally Gilmore wants to know when she discovers the dog shelter her grandparents have been running for more than two decades will have to shut its doors on January 1. Yet Ally isn't surprised to learn that the decisive vote on the Pine Hollow town council to shut down Furry Friends Animal Shelter was cast by Ben West, aka the tall, dark, and grumpy man she accidentally doused with coffee. What does stun her is Ben's unexpected offer to help her find perfect homes for the 12 dogs still at the shelter. Shane's heart-warming plot, perfect mix of small-town charm and buoyant wit, perfectly imperfect human characters, and adorable canines truly capture the thrill of love and the magic of the dogs-and-people connection.
