Summary
"In this heartwarming tale set during the Christmas season, a single father and a fashion photographer are brought together by a young boy and a mischievous Bernese mountain dog--but first they must learn to set aside their differences if they are willing to let their relationship bloom. David Murphy never knew much about kids. But when his brother dies unexpectedly, David is granted custody of his six-year-old nephew, Troy, who he's only seen once a year since he was born. He already has his hands full running his business, and he has no idea how to help the grieving boy. When Troy runs off one day, David finds him at a park playing with an adorable and rambunctious Bernese mountain dog--who leads him to Sophie. Sophie Griffith has spent her life travelling around the world as a photojournalist. She has never stayed in one place for long, and her new assignment--helping her grandmother for a few weeks--is just temporary. Once Christmas day comes, Sophie is off the hook and can leave for a new adventure. Caring for her grandmother is a piece of cake--but caring for her new Bernese mountain dog, Riggs, is a different story. It doesn't help that Riggs strikes up a friendship with a lost little boy one day at the park--and leads her to David. Neither David nor Sophie have time for romance. But as they spend more time together, they start falling for each other even though they know it can't go anywhere. Sophie will be gone after Christmas, and the last thing David needs is another distraction as he tries to comfort Troy. But as their faith and growing love for the boy and dog unites them, they wonder whether it's more than a holiday romance"--
Summary
After a chance meeting at the park, Sophie Griffith and David Murphy acknowledge their mutual attraction but their pursuit of romance is challeged by Sophie's career-driven mentality and David's grief over the loss of his brother
