When Molly retreats to North Carolina with Gracie, her ten-year-old daughter, she's surprised to find her childhood crush, Nick, still living in the area. Months before her retreat, Molly's husband announces he's leaving to sail around the world with his best friend. She divorces him and takes Gracie to the Smoky Mountains where she spent many happy childhood vacations.
The morning after her arrival, Nick shows up on her porch, and he is even more handsome than she remembered. She feels the flush of her adolescent crush heating up.
Gracie refuses to believe her father won't come back for them, so she resents Nick spending time with her mother and tries her best to pull them apart. With the help of a kitten named Minty, Gracie begins to accept the love developing between Nick and Molly in time for her first Christmas in the mountains of North Carolina.
Minty's Kiss is a sweet romantic novella, filled with holiday cheer brought to life by an adorable kitten.
