Pastels & Jingle Bells by Christine S. Feldman




I loved loved this book.  I mean who of us hasn't dreamed about the day they would run into the person that tormented us as a child.  The things we would say to them now that we were adults?  That is exactly what happens in this book.  This is a must read book, in fact I have read it three times so far, just because I loved it so much.

Trish Ackerly was working in her bakery when she spots Ian Rafferty.  The man that had made her life a living hell as a teenager.  Ian wants to hire Trish to paint some Christmas designs on his windows for his daughter.  Trish leaps at the chance to get paybacks on him for being so mean to her, the problem is he doesn't remember her.  The biggest problem of all is Kelsey, Ian's daughter is being bullied at school.  Trish puts all her past hurts aside and decides to paint the windows.  Kelsey and Trish paint the windows together.
When the mean kids ruin their painting Kelsey is devastated and Trish, understand the pain races to make repaint the window making it better then ever.
