About the book
Reeling from the upheaval of a failed marriage, Annie Hanahan is desperate for a new start—and when she inherits a cottage on Ocracoke Island, she may finally get it. Without a second thought, she packs up and leaves everything behind: her first name, her job, and her ex-husband, because more than anything, she wants to get her son away from his father’s partying and neglectful ways. But when she arrives in the Outer Banks, she finds the island—and her promised refuge—ravaged by Hurricane Dorian.
When their parents died in a tragic car accident, Trey Kingsley dropped out of college to raise his sister. Now that she’s grown and moved away, it’s his turn to find a life of his own. As a contractor who has given so much of his time to helping Ocracoke recover from the devastation of Hurricane Dorian, it surprises no one when he offers to help the beautiful newcomer, but something is holding her back. Life keeps throwing them together, though, or perhaps God’s hand is giving them a nudge. Will a little bit of divine intervention be enough for a Merry Christmas on Ocracoke?

Welcome to the blog! It happens to be my favorite time of year. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
Annie: The birth of Christ. But, that may be too obvious so I’ll say the traditions. And I’m most excited about starting my own traditions in my new home. Do you think the repairs will be done on time?
Trey: Not making promises I can’t keep. You’ll have to wait and see. If worse comes to worst, you can have Christmas in the rental house with me and Megan.
Annie: That’s not worst and thank you for inviting me.
I have One dog, two cats, and four ducks. Do you have a pet? If not, what kind of pet would you like to have?
Annie: I don’t officially have a pet, but if the poor General survived the hurricane then I inherited him as well as the house.
Trey: The General?
Annie: Mrs. Spelman’s cat. He’s mine, according to the will, but no one’s seen him for months.
Trey: Huh. Do you know what he looks like?
Annie: No, why? Have you seen a cat when you’re working over there?
Trey: I’m not sure.
Annie: Huh back at you. You’re not very forthcoming today, are you?
Trey: Just being careful. But, let’s just say that I might have fed a stray cat that may now think it belongs to your house if it didn’t before. Maybe.
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
Annie: That’s easy, sleep. Sweet baby James wears me to a frazzle.
Trey: I don’t know that I’d know what to do with myself. There’s always work to be done on somebody’s house—so much damage from the hurricane. I can barely sleep for thinking about what needs to be done next.
Annie: That’s not good. You need to take care of yourself, too.
Trey: Thank you. But, um, look who’s talking?
Annie: Touche. Good point.
What three traits define you?
Annie: I hadn’t really thought about this before, I’ll have to think.
Trey: So, let me answer for you. You’re a loving, devoted mother. Oh, and you’re beautiful inside and out.
Annie: Wow. Um, what do I owe you?
Trey: I’m serious. You’re pretty special in my book, Annie Hanahan.
Annie: Thank you. Okay, turnabout’s fair play. You, Trey Kingsley, are a hero. Everyone on Ocracoke that I’ve met appreciates all you’ve done and that you’re doing to help. And your sister, I haven’t met her yet, but I know how much you sacrificed for her.
Trey: Okay, that made me uncomfortable. Really, I’m just doing what I can.
Annie: Like I said, hero.
What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received?
Trey: I’m out of order, but can I just say that what you just said is an incredible gift? Thank you for believing in me, Annie.
Annie: You’re welcome. And you might guess I’d say the cottage.
Trey: Never. Your answer is James, your son, never a doubt in my mind. And then we both need to back up and say the grace of Christ.
Annie: How’d you get so smart? And Amen.
Thank you guys for talking with me today!
