Christmastime at Papa Lee’s
RSVP by Dec 20: You are cordially invited to attend a Christmas celebration at Papa Lee’s.

Good thing it’s the season for miracles.

And that’s before I take into account my unexpected attraction to sexy cowboy Ren Fielding. What’re the chances I’ll make it through Australia Day with both my mind and heart intact?
