And here we are, November 2nd, and I totally didn’t post about this yesterday. Sorry about that! But anyway, a new book has been unleashed on the reading public!
That’s right. It’s totally snowing on my cover. How about we add a blurb?
Meri Klaus has one job: choose the next Santa. The problem? No one in the northern climes is suitable for the title.
As the daughter of Santa Claus, it’s up to her to keep the family business going. When Dad comes down with a case of polar flu, the whole world needs a stand-in, or Christmas won’t be coming this year. So what’s a gal to do?
Brett Dunning lost his holiday spirit seven years ago when childbirth took his wife on Christmas Eve. His daughter Holly might light up his life, but no amount of begging will get him to deck the halls.
With three short weeks to go, Meri doesn’t have much time to find a Mr. Claus, but when an old college friend requires a helping hand, she meets a man who needs a dose of holiday hope as much as she does.
Meri finds herself set on Brett, but how much mistletoe will it take to thaw his frozen heart?
If you weren’t already aware of my absolute adoration of the winter holidays, this should tell you plenty. I talked at length about this on a Facebook Live post today, but this story is essentially everything I love about Christmas wrapped around a romance, and you should definitely click that link if you want to witness me exploding in dorky holiday cheer.
For the Love of Christmas is easily the sweetest story I’ve ever written. When it comes to saving holiday magic, how could it not be? This one comes attached with a 100% guarantee of clean content. Unless you’re opposed to a few kisses or, you know, the idea of Santa, there’s not much here to find objectionable. It’s love and light and the importance of family. It’s the spirit of Christmas wrapped in a big red bow and sealed with a kiss. Plain and simply, this story just makes me happy, and I hope it makes my readers feel the same way.
Really, there are all sorts of things I could talk about with this book, like some of my favorite carols (some of which I mention in the story), holiday baking, family traditions… There’s just so much to love about this time of year for me. I tried to fit as much of it as I could in a single story, but I’m sure there’ll always be more.
So that’s my release post! I truly hope folks love this winter tale, and that it inspires some holiday cheer for you wherever you may be.
