Lillie is looking for this book, which she has been trying to find for awhile.
I need your help! I've been searching for a book for a few months and I'm coming up empty.
It's an older Harlequin or Silhouette, and I believe it was published in the 90s. It's a Christmas reunion story. The hero is a cop (last name may be Knight?), very ba-humbug and a neat freak. The heroine loves Christmas, is a free-spirit and her name has something to do with the holiday. I think it might actually be Christmas, nicknamed Chrissy. Heroine saw her boss commit a crime, went to the police, and met the hero. They hooked up during the trial, then she disappeared.
The book starts just before Christmas. Hero comes home one night to find a trail of clothes through his house, leading to his bedroom. He knows immediately that the heroine is back and he finds her asleep in his bed, covered in cookie crumbs. The bad guys caught up with her in Florida (I think?) and she came back to him for help.
All the neighborhood kids see him as a Scrooge but she turns the pond into a skating rink for them. Lots of really sweet moments in this book as he tries to to corral her impulsiveness and she shows him the joy of the season.
I even remember the cover. The couple is laying in the snow, him on bottom with his black hair and her on top with straight blond hair. I just can't remember the title. Or author. Or publisher. You know, those minor details
It's like a holiday special: A Very Manic Pixie Dream Girl Christmas! Love it. Anyone recall this book?
