About a year ago, I posted a Charlie’s Angels book. Lo and behold another book in the series has found its way to my fiction pile here at the Awful Library Books home office.  This time Jill Munroe (Farrah Fawcett ) is no longer on the cover.

Harlequin Edition 1963

Nurse Andrea Grey has a couple of real problems. Boyfriend Godfrey is totally in love with her and begs her to quit nursing school and marry him.

Somehow the title of the house is in question and she has to live with snotty Boston guy Ebeneezer (I kid you not!) Squires. Turns out he is just misunderstood and love blooms for the holidays. Cue the music.
