Publisher's Summary

Renowned scientist Ian Callaway believes in numbers, logic, and reason. His life is an equation that always adds up, until his mentor asks him to do him a small favor. This favor sends him out of his lab and smack into Grace O'Malley, a free-spirited, beautiful elementary school teacher, who believes in love and miracles.

He was only supposed to deliver a package from Grace's estranged father, but a sudden snowstorm, a gathering of world leaders, and unexpected danger changes everything.

Ian doesn't know if he wants love, but he could sure use a miracle. If he can find a way to believe in Grace and the impossible, he might just get both.

Wonderful characters, story, narration

This is Ian and Grace's story. The characters are wonderfully written and feel so real. The story is full of suspense and the unfolding love story between Ian and Grace. The narration is very good. This is really an enjoyable, entertaining book.
