Together for Christmas by Katherine Spencer
Molly Harding and her partner Betty Bowman are owners of Willoughby's Fine Foods and Catering in the town of Cape Light. Betty Bowman's husband is recovering from a serious injury, and Betty has to step back from the business and take care of her husband. This puts more pressure on Molly during the holiday season, which is Willoughby's Fine Foods and Catering's busiest time of year. Molly is not as good as Betty with the finances and soon finds herself in over her head and, thinking she can do it all, puts off asking others for help. Finally she realizes if she doesn't ask for help from her husband and best friend, Betty, they will lose the business.
Meanwhile, a single mother, Carrie Munro, and her son, Noah, have come to Cape Light to start a new life. Carrie is out of work and looking for a new job, a new place for her and Noah to live. Noah likes his new school, and he's especially happy with his new friend, who he calls Theo. Noah insists his new friend is an angel. At first Carrie is amused but later becomes concerned; she seeks out the help of Dr. Jeff Carlson, who is a child psychologist for help and guidance.
