Christmas is in the air.
Pulling Garrett Johansson over isn’t the most auspicious beginnging to a relationship for Officer Lisa Weight, but at least she didn’t have to give him a ticket. Not that she’s looking for a guyeven if her mom says she should be. 

Garrett is glad to visit his sister, Sheila, during the Christmas season, but he hadn’t counted on a major snow storm as soon as he landed in Kansas City. When his sister introduces the cop who pulled him over as a friend of hers, he puts their less-than-stellar beginnings in the past and gives her a chance. The more he gets to know her, the better he likes her. If only he didn’t live 1600 miles away in California. 

With everything trying to keep them apart, can they still have a Merry Christmas?”



Q&A With the Author:

1. What inspired this Christmas/Winter book? I wanted to write a little story about how Sheila’s brother met and married the police officer in Crystal Creek for a while now so when I started thinking about writing a Christmas novella, choosing them was a no-brainer. I loved being able to share more of the community spirit that I remember growing up in a small town.
2. Do you have other Holiday books? If so, what are they are for which Holidays? If not, what other books do you write?– I have several other books set in or around Christmas time, most notably One Winter Night and Reclaiming His Bride (though that one is less Christmas specific.) I also have other titles that feature a holiday event at some point in the story.

3. What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it? Getting my master’s degree. I actually applied a few weeks ago for grad school and now I’m stuck waiting to see if they’ll accept me. 

4. Tell us about things you enjoy what you do for fun or personal satisfaction besides writing? I like learning new things and trying out recipes. Lately I learned how to make pasta from scratch (which is why Lisa does it in Love at Christmas). 

5. Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real life? Lots of them are. The lights in the park with Santa is a twist on an event in the town where I grew up. Lots of other little bits and pieces of my life show up in my books.

6. Tell us one Christmas or Winter tradition that you love to do every year, and why it is so special to you. I love baking holiday treats and giving them away to friends and neighbors. When I was growing up my mom baked for days and we would run them to tons of people. It made me feel connected to my neighbors when we exchanged treats. For me, Christmas is all about reaching out and serving others.

Jonah Owens thought moving to Echo Ridge to open his art gallery would solve all of his problems. The need to sell his grandma’s house adds an unexpected complication. It would be easier if his neighbor didn’t have all those farm animals.

 Kaya Feidler’s family has owned their land for nearly a hundred years–long before the neighbors were there. There’s no way she’s giving up the animal therapy business she’s been struggling to make profitable. She gets a temp job helping Jonah in the gallery. 

Spending time together is a recipe for romance, but can they overcome their own hangups to be more than friends?


Snippet:
Jonah turned to a new page, thought of the boy and started drawing him on the sorrel, his gangly arms and legs seemingly out of proportion with the rest of him as boys so often were at his age. Jonah didn’t draw him straight on, but at an oblique angle, his excitement showing from the way he held his arms and legs, the implied movement of the horse. It felt a little like joy.
When he finished a rough draft, he flipped the sheet and started on one of the girl in the wheelchair and the happiness that had suffused her face as she held out a treat for the goat. It nuzzled her hand and she grinned brightly, joy on her face. She was detailed, and the goat was moderately detailed, but the rest of the space, the straw, the wooden beams and windows were little more than shapes in the picture, lines shooting off in different directions, adding dimension and mood without being fully formed.
It felt good to create, to feel the dust of charcoal, the sharp edges of the rectangular stick pressing into the pads of his fingers. His hands ached to hold a brush and spread paint across the paper, to see the form emerging from his mind and heart as he created something more than either part of him could ever do alone.
