Now in Paperback!

Just released in paperback, 

My Christmas Dream

Now available through Amazon.com and others

I never really expected my dream to come true.
Yet, there I was, standing on a ladder, organizing and cleaning shelves in my very own bookstore—well, mine, Aubrey’s and our not-so-silent partner, her husband, Josh.
I’d dusted as high as I could reach, until I was forced to stand on a step-ladder to get to the very top shelf.
As I reached for a box of books, sparkling dust motes drifted slowly down from the shelf and I felt a tickling sensation in my nose. Uh-oh. With one hand, I grabbed the dust rag I’d left on the shelf, and held it up to my face.
Ah-choo. Ah-choo. Ah-choo!
I sneezed with such violence, the overloaded box slipped from my grasp and fell to the floor. The cardboard ripped apart and dozens of paperback books scattered across the carpet.
Startled, I pulled back abruptly from my precarious perch on the very top of the rickety wooden ladder. As I grabbed at air, the dust wand flew from my fingers and I found myself falling with the ladder. But before I could hit the floor, strong arms caught me. In a daze, I stared at the ladder, before I turned my head and gazed into the hazel-colored eyes of the tall, dark-haired man who held me.

Books Make Great Gifts!

Excerpt from My Christmas Dream

Aubrey popped into the bookstore while I was hanging wreaths in the windows. 
“What do you think?” I asked her. 
“I have some ideas,” she answered and shortly after that, headed back out the door to do some shopping.

I rarely went out at lunchtime, but I needed to get some things for Thanksgiving dinner. “You’re in charge,” I told Sylvester, who looked up at me from his bed of books, yawned and went back to sleep.

By the time I got back to the bookstore, I was tired and frustrated and it wasn’t until I walked inside and turned around to flip the Closed sign to Open that I realized the windows had been decorated in my absence.
Aubrey had flocked the windows with a spray can of “snow.” And then each window had a display with a stuffed animal, “reading” a book. Looking around the rest of the room, I saw that on top of the Children’s Corner bookcase, the bear with glasses had been joined by a mama bear and three little bears while “papa” bear read The Night Before Christmas to them.
There was even a display made of red and green books stacked so each level had less books and the top level was only one book, a book Christmas tree.
The decorations were awesome.  I had to tell her.

My Christmas Dream!

How do you know that your dream has come true?

Jorden “Jordie” Butler is thrilled to be the brand new co-owner of a bookstore, which she calls “New Chapters.” It is a new phase in their lives. She and Aubrey are no longer employees of a large chain store, they own their small town’s used bookstore. Even the deal they worked out seems like a win-win for everyone—Aubrey and her husband, Josh, make the down payment and Jordie will work off her share in sweat equity. She even falls—literally—for a handsome man and falls in love with an adorable stray cat. 

It’s a dream come true, right? Until everything begins to fall apart.

Four Stories of Love, Laughter and Wedding Disasters

4 Stories about Love, Laughter, and
Wedding Disasters.

The plot kept me captivated as a budding romance develops between Chasen and Skye, who seem to have the same vision and goals in life. I found the dialog to be open, honest and heartwarming and a few lines to melt the heart. “It looks like your journey brought you love.” “If you dream together, then it’s a reality.
I enjoyed this fast pace wedding novella with interesting characters. The plot kept the pages turning, and the dialog was entertaining. What happens when the wedding planner and her fiancé have a difference of opinion? A wedding is a girls dream, and she knows what she wants, but what if the groom is trying to rush things?
