Can you believe Christmas is only nine weeks away? Christmas trees, decorations, and all the other wonderful goodies are already lining the shelves in stores. One song that comes to mind every time I go shopping is, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” :-) Also, if anyone doesn’t know it already, the Hallmark Channel’s countdown to Christmas will officially begin October, 29. (which is one only week away)
Some of us, (me) have already started downloading Christmas books and have been busy filling our Kindles and other reading devices to overflowing.
Well, I want to add another one to everyone’s list. A must-read Christmas story, ‘Reunited At Christmas’ by my dear friend Debra Ullrick.
Blurb: Search and rescue dog handler Shelby Davis is living the dream. Not only does she train search and rescue dogs, but she’s a bestselling suspense author who has waterfront property in the beautiful mountain town of Grand Lake, Colorado. All is well until she receives a call to bring her dog Max and her snowmobile to help rescue a man who is lost in a blizzard up on Gravel Mountain. That man is the one person she never wants to see again—Ryker Anderson—the man who broke her heart the day he called three months before their wedding to say goodbye with no explanation as to why.
After being gone for eighteen months, Ryker Anderson is back in Grand Lake where he hopes to win back the woman he loves. He only hopes Shelby understands why he left. Will he be able to convince Shelby that she can trust him with her heart again even though he broke it before?
A little about the author: Debra Ullrick is a New York Times, CBA, and Amazon.com bestselling author. Her titles include: A Log Cabin Christmas, Forewarned, Catch Me if You Can, A Cowboy for Christmas, The Dreamer and the Cowboy, Say it with Roses, A Forever Thing, Reunited at Christmas, Christmas Belles of Georgia, A Recipe for Romance, A Dozen Apologies, Dixie Hearts, The Bride Wore Coveralls, Deja vu Bride, The Unexpected Bride, The Unlikely Wife, Groom Wanted, Colorado Courtship, and The Unintended Groom.
A lot of Debra’s inspiration comes from her real life hero, her hottie cowboy husband of forty plus years. And she uses some of her only daughter’s antics in her books as well.
Debra and her husband lived and worked on various cattle ranches throughout the Rocky Mountains for over twenty-eight years. The last ranch they lived at, a famous movie star and her screenwriter husband purchased property there. Another ranch they worked on, Kurt Russell hunted on it, and her husband had the privilege of taking Eddie Albert horseback riding.
Recently, Debra and her husband, along with their ornery Manx, moved to the flatlands, where they’re currently dealing with cultural whiplash from city living.
Besides Christ, her passions include: attending Red Rocks Church in Lakewood, mud-bog racing, monster trucks, classic cars, muscle cars, watching Jane Austen movies, COPS, Castle, Little People Big World, Little Couple, reading, writing, drawing western art, feeding wild birds, animals, and talking with her friends.

At the beginning of my post, I’d mentioned the song, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” That’s one of my favorite Christmas song along with many, many others. What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
