The only case they haven’t cracked is how to be together. Not on Officer Maggie Kyle’s Christmas bingo card: • A homemade bomb in a bus station locker. • A child, the prime suspect in the bombing. • Her partner of ten years abandoning her to solve the case on her own. Max St. James might be the worst cop in the world—or at least in Toronto: • He fell in love with his partner. • He’s the reason she never became a detective. • He doesn’t much care who planted the bomb. The IED’s blast ignites years of tension, sending Maggie and Max careening in opposite directions—but opposites still attract. Can they find a way to come together to solve the case before another bomb goes off? And will it mean another ten years sacrificing the future they want for the partnership they already have?

Sissy Ames has been driven to succeed her entire life. On her own, she’s turned her Bittersweet Café into a success, and she’s rebuilt a friendship with her cousin Harper after years of going it alone, but her past bad judgement in trusting Hunter Wells during their relationship continues to cast shadows on the future she’s trying to build for herself. Hunter Wells has been coasting through life, working at the family business and creating the life that his family expects for him. He’d once hoped for a different existence, but he’d been forced to move on and make do after Sissy Ames had ended their three-year relationship without an explanation. Even in their small town, the two have managed to avoid each other, but then Hunter’s fiancée, Sissy’s nemesis, disappears after a suspicious confrontation, leaving them both looking like likely suspects. The only hope they have of clearing their names and figuring out what led to the disappearance is to find the one item that drove them apart two years ago: The Ames BORROWED TREASURE.
