Finding Noel by Richard Paul Evans

This is the latest Christmas book by the author. I have read almost all of his books and really enjoyed them, I wasn't disappointed with this one.
Mark Smart moved to Utah to go to school and get away from his father. The school cancels his scholarship so he has to drop out but he doesn't tell his family because his father would basically say "I told you so". Then one day he receives a message from his Aunt that his mother passed away, whom he was very close too. However because nobody knew how to contact him, he missed the funeral and now his entire family knows he was lying about still being in school and his father told him not to come back home.
Mark has finally had enough - doesn't' think he can continue with life. Then in a snow storm his car breaks down and he walks to a coffee shop to use the phone so he can get a ride home. There he meets Macy Woods. Macy saved his life that day. Mark and Macy begin to hang out, and slowly he realizes he is falling in love with her. However Macy has her own problems. She was in foster homes and finally adopted by a family who beat her and didn't love her. She was separated from her younger sister as well. Macy and Mark set out to find her father and her sister but will things work out between them? Will Mark finally make peace with his father?
