Some say that casting crusty attorney Allen Sharpe as Scrooge in the Kindred Players production of “A Christmas Carol” is just playing to type. He’s not the most beloved man in town. In fact, you’d have a dickens of a time finding someone who liked him. Still it’s a shock when the Ghost of Christmas Past stabs him during the first rehearsal. Suzanne, co-owner of the Cackleberry Club café, Kindred’s favorite combination diner, craft store and bookshop, chases the murderer out of the building but loses him in the alley.

As the days pass the list of suspects grows longer. Is it the disgruntled partner? The former secretary whom Sharpe sexually harrassed? Or is it fellow owner of the Cackleberry Club, Toni’s almost ex-husband, Junior? The women of the Cackleberry Club are determined to find the killer before he can add another victim to his Christmas list.

About the Author

laura childs from facebook

Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Tea Shop Mysteries, Scrapbook Mysteries, and Cackleberry Club Mysteries. In her previous life she was CEO/Creative Director of her own marketing firm and authored several screenplays. She is married to a professor of Chinese art history, loves to travel, rides horses, enjoys fundraising for various non-profits, and has two Chinese Shar-Pei dogs.

Laura specializes in cozy mysteries that have the pace of a thriller (a thrillzy!) Her three series are:

The Tea Shop Mysteries – set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She’s also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn’t rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.

The Scrapbooking Mysteries – a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans’ spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!

The Cackleberry Club Mysteries – set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe’s undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.

Him With the Beard by Pernille Meldgaard Pedersen Blog Tour with Review & Giveaway (Win A Cosy Christmas Prize with One Jim Shore Santa Claus Ornament, Santa Claus Marshmallows, A Chocolate Advent Calendar, A Pretty Christmas Storage Box and finally, A Signed Copy of my book Him With The Beard~OPEN INTERNATIONALLY)

Him With The Beard

by Pernille Meldgaard Pedersen

Synopsis:

Do you remember that moment you stopped believing in Santa Claus?

When nine-year-old Mille suddenly no longer believes in Santa Claus, it turns the house upside down.

Her mother, Stella, is in a pickle as the hunt to find Santa Claus unearths some family secrets.

Christmas is at risk!

And there’s only one person who can save it.

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Him With the Beard is a sweet read, perfect for putting you in the mood for the holiday season!!!!

As the synopsis asks, “Do you remember that moment you stopped believing in Santa Claus?” That is the pivotal question that is the backbone of this short story. Stella’s daughter, Millie, no longer believes, and it just breaks Stella’s heart. She is determined to prove Millie wrong. What occurs will turn their family upside down….a secret is unearthed, and Stella’s world is rocked. What she does from there is the important question.

The book is very short, but that doesn’t affect the story told. It is sweet, poignant, and it will warm your heart. The characters are really developed, especially considering the length of the book. Pedersen really shows her readers the meaning of Christmas, and she also shows us it doesn’t really matter if there is proof of his existence, but what he means to us…love, hope, and the belief in miracles. Isn’t that what Christmas is really all about?

A Gentleman for Christmas by Prescott Lane Blog Tour with Review

AGFC-BT banner.jpg

A Gentleman for Christmas by Prescott Lane

Release Date: November 26th

AGFC_ebook_amazon_kobo_ibooks.jpg

A Gentleman for Christmas, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.

Some say “chivalry is dead.”

I don’t think so. Most women I know like a gentleman.

Protective, opens doors, treats women with respect, typically follows the rules.

But a gentleman doesn’t fall for his best friend’s woman. Current or ex.

And that’s what I’ve done.

During the Christmas season of all times — that magical time for decorations, gifts, family . . .

Yes, the girl who was off-limits for so long, who I’ve loved all my life, has come back in town and possibly back to me.

I can’t follow the gentleman rules this time. There’s too much at stake. I let her go once. I won’t let her go again.

What happens under the mistletoe, stays under the mistletoe.

Or does it?

AGFC-AN.jpg




Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

Another must read from Prescott Lane! 

Jax had a pact with his best guy friends, the main part of the pact was that they would never let a girl come between them so if one liked a girl, she was off limits to the other friends. This rule meant that when his best friend said he was in love with Skylar, a female friend of theirs, Jax had to back off even though he was in love with her, too. Now, as an adult, Jax has written “The Gentleman’s Handbook” full of gentleman rules to follow.

Skylar thought Luke was The One and has been with him for 10 years. But when there is still no proposal after all this time, she figures it is time to cut her losses and move on. She goes home to visit and lick her wounds and reconnects with Jax, her longtime childhood friend. Skylar had a crush on Jax years ago but figured he never felt the same. She is shocked to learn that he has always loved her.

Can these two break the rules and find happiness together?

I loved Jax and Skylar’s story! They had such great chemistry and I loved getting both of their POV. This story was a perfect holiday romance – lots of sweetness without a lot of angst. Prescott Lane always pulls me right into each story and this one is no different. Highly recommended to put you right in the holiday spirit!

Excerpt:

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.”

Otherwise known as the original bros before hoes commandment.

I’m not advocating calling women hoes. It’s an expression, so put away your Encyclopedia of Political Correctness.

There are rules in life. The Ten Commandments were just the beginning. We have rules for everything. How to drive. How to dress. How to walk across the damn street. So why not rules for love? That’s how all this started — a set of rules between my buddies and me.

The Bro Code.

Obviously, bros before hoes is rule one. We vowed never to let a girl come between us, which meant if one of us liked a girl, she was forever off limits.

Little did I know our teenage pact would launch my multi-million dollar career. A little tweaking here and some socially acceptable rewording there and The Gentleman’s Handbook was born.

I’ve written books and given seminars on everything from how to find love, to how to propose, to how to have a successful long-distance relationship. You name it, and I’ve got rules for it. Personally, I’ve never been much of a rule follower, but that’s my little secret.

The funny thing is I’ve never been in love. Well, there is this one girl, but we won’t talk about her. It does no good to think about someone you can’t have and never will.

My lack of emotional commitment hasn’t slowed down my career one bit. Currently, I have two books on the New York Times Best Sellers List. My seminars sell out like a Drake concert.

I always find it interesting that the rules started between a group of male friends, but it’s mostly women that come to hear me speak. Occasionally, you see the poor sap boyfriend who was dragged along to listen, but for the most part it’s all women.

This time of the year is no exception. December first until January first is important for guys. Holidays are big for a lot of couples. If you don’t know what you’re doing for your lady, you better figure it out and fast. In fact, my rule is that you should be paying attention all year long.

Trust me on this. If you remember something she mentioned she liked three months ago and surprise her with it at Christmas, she’ll spread her legs before Santa even has time to slide down the chimney. Let’s be honest, that is always at least part of the goal for guys.

So my current work in progress tackles Christmas. A how-to guide for the holidays.

The Gentleman’s Rules for Christmas.

Callie’s Christmas Wish: Still Raving About Rhys by Jessica Redland Blog Tour with Review

Callie's Christmas Wish

Callie’s Christmas Wish

by Jessica Redland

 

Synopsis: 

Christmas is approaching and love is in the air at Bay View Care Home. Supervising carer, Callie Derbyshire, is blissfully happy with new boyfriend, Rhys. The tree’s up, the lights are twinkling, and, with the Christmas Eve wedding of one of the residents, Iris, to look forward to, everything is perfect.
Well, almost.
Rhys’s ex has him at her beck and call, yet refuses to let Callie meet their baby daughter. Callie’s ex is intent on stirring up trouble. And Callie’s favourite resident, Rhys’s nanna, Ruby, hasn’t been her usual self since Iris announced her engagement.
Convinced that Ruby’s lonely, especially after discovering the truth about her lost love, Callie’s determined to give Ruby’s romantic story the happy ending it deserves. Ruby might be adamant that the past should be left in the past. But, when it comes to true love, surely a little well-meaning meddling and a Christmas wish or two can’t do any harm. After all, it’s never to late to let love in again. Or is it?
A heartwarming Christmas story of finding new love, and the courage to revisit a love that was lost long ago.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

If you are looking for that special Christmas read, then look no further than Callie’s Christmas Wish. It will definitely put you in the holiday spirit!!!!

Callie and a good majority of the characters were introduced in the book, Raving for Rhys. This one is a continuation of sorts of Callie and Rhys’s romance. It’s nearing Christmas, but not everyone is enjoying the magical season. Callie is very happy with Rhys, but his ex is causing trouble. She won’t allow Callie to spend anytime with Rhys’s daughter,, and she seems to have Rhys on a short leash, even though they aren’t together. If that wasn’t enough, Callie’s jerk ex, Tony, has shown back up causing trouble. Rhys grandmother, Ruby, is somewhat down in the dumps since her friend, Iris, is now engaged. Anyone who knows Callie knows she is determined to not let any of this ruin Christmas.

When she spends more time with Ruby, she learns more about her past, and this is where the book’s focus shifts to Ruby and her own happily ever after. I knew Ruby had a colorful past, and I was right. I loved discovering more about her and her lost love.

Redland manages to juggle several characters’ stories at one time, and she does it flawlessly. What she gives us is a magical book about love, reconciliation, and second chances, all while showing us it’s never too late, or you’re never too old to find love!!!!

If the book wasn’t good enough, Redland also gives us insight into her writing process and how this story developed….that made it even better. So, find a quiet place with a warm cup of tea or coffee and settle in to read this most wonderful book!!!!!

Author Bio 

Jessica - Author Photo

Jessica had never considered writing as a career until a former manager kept telling her that her business reports read more like stories and she should write a book. She loved writing but had no plot ideas. Then something happened to her that prompted the premise for her debut novel, Searching for Steven. She put fingers to keyboard and soon realised she had a trilogy and a novella.
She lives on the stunning North Yorkshire Coast — the inspiration for the settings in her books — with her husband, daughter, cat, Sprocker Spaniel, and an ever-growing collection of collectible teddy bears. Although if the dog has her way, the collection will be reduced to a pile of stuffing and chewed limbs!
Her passion for North Yorkshire is shared by fellow-writer and great friend, Sharon Booth and, together, they are the Yorkshire Rose Writers.
Jessica tries to balance her time — often unsuccessfully — between being an HR tutor, trying to re-learn how to play the piano, studying towards a Masters in Creative Writing, and writing itself. Who needs sleep?

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane by Emily Harvale Blog Tour with Review

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane

by Emily Harvale

 

Synopsis

Snow is falling in Little Pondale, lights are twinkling and the smell of pine trees and roasting chestnuts fills the air …

But Mia Ward is in a bit of a jam. She’d planned to rent out Corner Cottage for Christmas but thanks to best friend, Ella Swann, it’s double-booked. Now Mia’s got to let one ‘party’ down, or find another cottage – fast.

Best friends and single mums, Cathy Cole and Christy Franks want their kids to have an old-fashioned Christmas. Ice-skating, carol singing, making decorations, and tobogganing are on their list of festive fun and Little Pondale is the perfect place. Especially as it has no mobile phone reception. That will make it harder for Cathy to be found.

City banker, Leo Hardman is wondering if renting a cottage for Christmas as an anniversary surprise for his parents, was such a good idea. Little Pondale may be where his parents met, but his mum doesn’t seem pleased to be back, and his brother, Hal isn’t happy that the village is so tiny and only has one pub.

Meanwhile, Jenny Lake is settling in at her cousin’s bakery, having left her (broken) heart in Florence, but Christmas was never her favourite time of year. And Reverend Glen Fox has taken over at St Michael and All Angels. He’s glad it’s a temporary post because village life is not for him.

But luckily, for locals and visitors alike, there’s a sleigh-load of Christmas magic heading for Lily Pond Lane; enough to put a sparkle in everyone’s festive season. Although Christmas may not go quite as each of them has planned.



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Emily Harvale has again given her fans another great addition to her wonderful, heartwarming series. I was so glad to see that there was a Christmas addition!!

Harvale returns with some of my favorites, Mia, Ella, and Jet while meeting new ones. I have to be honest and say though, I was most curious of where Mia and Jet’s relationship is going. These two have had quite the journey, and Harvale exceeded all my expectations!

Harvale has always captured my heart with her storyline and her characters, but this one was really special. She truly captured the Christmas spirit. It certainly put me in the “holiday spirit.” She does such a great job of creating such a detailed setting, and I can always picture it so clearly in my mind.

One of the reasons I love this series so much is because I feel like I have gotten to know the characters I met from the very first book. They have grown and changed so much. I feel like I’m catching up with old friends. As always, I will be looking forward to returning in the future and seeing where the characters will take me!
