I love Christmas! Everything about the lights, decorations, music, food, and fellowship warms my heart each season. I love how cozy my house feels with the tree up, and I look forward to going home each evening and turning on the lights. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year.
While all these things are fun, they are not the most important reason for the season. Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Christ.
“The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.”
John 1:9 ESV
As believers, we are called to be the light of the world. Recently, I had a heart-to-heart conversation with a close friend who reminded me that I can fulfill this purpose by sharing my faith through my writing. Being a Christian romance author, I have the opportunity to infuse my stories with messages of God’s faithfulness, goodness, and love. As I write, I seek inspiration from the Lord, hoping that my words will touch the hearts of readers and bring them joy.
When I started working on The Thing About Mistletoe Kisses, my goal was to write a feel-good Christmas romance that left you with a smile on your face. I created a tiny mountain town which is the perfect setting for readers to immerse themselves and feel part of the community. The characters could be your son or daughter, friend or sibling, and everyone knows each other. You’ll probably want to have a meal at Deb’s Grill or take a trip with the family to cut down a Christmas tree at Spake Farms.
Rett Edwards is a grump, and Stella Spake is sunshine. They are the perfect match (yeah, right) to work together on her family’s tree farm. But he doesn’t know she’s had a crush on him since elementary school or that she’s never been kissed. And she doesn’t realize the scars of his past are what’s hardened his exterior.
I can’t wait for you to read their story, so I’m giving an ebook advanced reader copy to one winner. All you have to do to enter is tell me your favorite thing about Christmas.
Year after year, I’ve watched couples fall in love at the town gazebo. After all, it’s smack dab in the middle of town and in direct sight of my family’s Christmas tree stand. I’ve seen my fair share of kisses under the mistletoe, but I’ve never been on the receiving end of one.
When a series of unfortunate events prevents my dad from running the tree farm this season, he hires Rett Edwards to step in. Rett needs a job, and my dad needs help.
For someone who grew up in this town the same as me, you’d think he would appreciate the tourist attraction and smile once in a while. But he’s cold as ice, and I’m making it my mission to melt away his grumpiness.
