Keeping this secret gets complicated

with the family she wished for right next door.

Swapping places with her identical twin over the holidays sounds easy enough to Chanel Houston. But playing the role is trickier than expected when it comes to maintaining frosty relations with her sister’s neighbor and nemesis—especially since he has an adorable little girl and a rowdy puppy. Ryder Frost’s supposed to be grumpy and rude…so why does Chanel find the single dad so irresistible?

Chanel Houston tossed her keys in her purse and reached into the back seat of her sister’s 2002 Honda Civic to grab one of the boxes of books. She had packed a couple of medium boxes, intending to use her unexpected ‘vacation’ to catch up on some reading.

She closed the door, already missing her Chevy Trailblazer, and made her way up the three rickety steps of the place she had spent a few summers as a teen. Brushing her hands across her gray hooded sweater and jean shorts, Chanel stood before the entrance of her grandparents’ home—a nineteenth-century historical landmark boasting six bedrooms, three baths, a wraparound porch, a vegetable garden and a small pond—and shook her head.

The things you do for your sister. Your identical twin sister.

Things like switching places when you’re a grown woman. Her sister, Cara, a detective at the Hawk’s Landing Police Department, was working with the FBI on a secret case and needed the people of her small hometown in Delaware to believe she was still here. So of course she had called her convenient stand-in to switch with her until Christmas. Chanel and Cara had met up in Sussex County to switch cars, clothes and keys. It was more than a coincidence that Chanel had just resigned from her job as a librarian in Newport News, Virginia.

She stopped at the top of the stairs and groaned. Oh no. She had thrown the key ring holding the house and car keys in her black hole of a purse…Placing the box on the ground, Chanel rummaged around in her bag for the keys.

While she searched, an odd sensation of being watched crawled up her spine. She turned but saw nothing in the dim lighting.

Scolding her overactive imagination, Chanel plopped the bag on the floor and stooped to conduct a more thorough search. Great. After a four-hour ride, she was sweaty and could use a drink of water.

She felt a small, wet imprint on the back of her leg. Followed by heavy breathing. Panting.

Her body tensed. That didn’t sound like a deer.

Grabbing a travel-sized umbrella out of her bag, Chanel whipped around, her bottom landing hard on the wooden porch. She yelped and met the blue-eyed gaze of a Siberian husky, taking in his white fur and hanging tongue. Her eyes went wide.

He snarled, watching her but otherwise standing still.

Realizing he was a puppy and had no intentions of harming her, Chanel reached out to ruffle his right ear, her other hand actively feeling around in her bag for the keys.

“Hey, boy.” She giggled and touched her chest. “You gave me quite a scare. Don’t you know better than to creep up on people like that? Huh?”

The animal moved closer to rub his nose against her arm before settling beside her. His shiny coat was soft. She could see the pup was well-groomed; someone was definitely missing their pet. She pushed her box of books into a corner and stretched her legs. Cocking her head, Chanel asked, “Where’s your owner, big guy?”

A throat cleared. “He’s right here.”
