A rugged Texas cowboy gets into the Christmas spirit to prove himself to the woman he loves in this heartwarming fifth novel of the USA Today bestselling series.

Maverick Callahan lives up to his reputation as a freewheeling cowboy. But a year ago he fell head-over-heels for an extraordinary woman he met while on vacation, a woman he was convinced he'd never see again. So when she appears on his doorstep like a Christmas miracle, Maverick is determined not to waste his lucky break.

Bridget O'Malley's world has flipped upside down. As the new guardian of her best friend's baby, she hasn't had a moment to think about the Texas rancher who broke her heart. He's just as sexy as ever, but she knows better than anyone that he's not the settling-down type. As the trees are trimmed and mistletoe hung, will some holiday magic help Bridget trust this carefree cowboy with her heart and her future?

You guys! Talk about a Christmas book worth a prominent spot on the nightstand! Second-chance romance is a staple when it comes to romance tropes. I love a good reconnection. Especially when it comes with a little added unforeseen circumstance.

It's a read filled with the magic of Christmas and the best romance has to offer. Of course, most things written by Carolyn Brown, fall under the category of amazing! Christmas with a Cowboy is no exception.

Get it on AMAZON
Provided and partnered by St. Martin's Griffin Macmillan via Netgalley

Are you a fan of a sweet melodic romance that takes a long and lingering path to love? Christmas Angels will be the absolute best read for you. It's a wholesome, sweet and loving kind of romance; not hurried or rushed. One that builds and has such a lovely rhythm. With the holiday season fast approaching, I find myself wanting a book that is easy to pick up and put down, yet still holds me as a reader. Christmas Angels does just that.

A lovely read.

A heartwarming Christmas story filled with the magic and miracles of the holiday season by USA Today Bestselling author, Nancy Naigle.

Growing up, Liz Westmoreland dreamed of taking over her grandparents inn located in the small mountain town of Antlers Creek only for it to be sold before she ever got the chance. While browsing the internet, she stumbles upon a listing for what looks to be the picturesque inn and it’s set to go to auction. Liz places a bid, and by a miracle, wins the auction. But when she gets there she finds the property in significant disrepair.

When Matt Hardy narrowly lost the inn and property that butted his land, he just hoped it wasn't another city slicker coming to make matters worse after the previous owners gutted the place for an art gallery. But the minute he recognized the sweet, freckle-faced girl from his childhood and heard her plans to reopen the inn, he jumps at the chance to help his childhood crush restore a place where he made so many fond memories.

While working on repairs, Liz and Matt discover her grandmother’s collection of angels in one of the cabins. When the angels start mysteriously showing up all over the inn, she begins to look at them as reassurance—that restoring the inn is what she's meant to do. But when an accident leaves Liz feeling like she made a mistake, will Matt—and the residents of Angels Creek—be able to show Liz that she's found a home? And possibly true love as well?

Did you say Brothers Best Friend trope? I'M IN!!! 

Single mom and the added fact that it's the holidays? Well... you've discovered my weakness!
I found this to be one of the more emotional reads from the Sweetwater Springs series. Perfectly executed with a flow that made it impossible to put Snowfall on Cedar down. 

A fantastic way to spend a chilly night and a sensationally stocking stuffer read for the holidays.

Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Burton

Out now!
From Hachette Book Group/ Grand Central Publishing
Get it now on AMAZON

One pet crow fights to save humanity from an apocalypse in this uniquely hilarious debut from a genre-bending literary author.

S.T., a domesticated crow, is a bird of simple pleasures: hanging out with his owner Big Jim, trading insults with Seattle's wild crows (those idiots), and enjoying the finest food humankind has to offer: Cheetos ®.

Then Big Jim's eyeball falls out of his head, and S.T. starts to feel like something isn't quite right. His most tried-and-true remedies--from beak-delivered beer to the slobbering affection of Big Jim's loyal but dim-witted dog, Dennis--fail to cure Big Jim's debilitating malady. S.T. is left with no choice but to abandon his old life and venture out into a wild and frightening new world with his trusty steed Dennis, where he discovers that the neighbors are devouring each other and the local wildlife is abuzz with rumors of dangerous new predators roaming Seattle. Humanity's extinction has seemingly arrived, and the only one determined to save it is a foul-mouthed crow whose knowledge of the world around him comes from his TV-watching education.

Hollow Kingdom is a humorous, big-hearted, and boundlessly beautiful romp through the apocalypse and the world that comes after, where even a cowardly crow can become a hero.

What does the fox say? I wouldn't know, but if you pick up Hollow Kingdom I am absolutely certain you can find out what the cat, the crow, the whale, and possibly a few others might say. Cheeky comedy and surprisingly good banter between the species.

An uproariously funny read, entirely unexpected. I can't wait to see what comes next from author Kira Jane Burton. I'm pretty sure I'm her newest fan :) 


Coming Home for Christmas by RaeAnne Thayne

From Harlequin Books
Get your copy today on AMAZON

Hearts are lighter and wishes burn a little brighter at Christmas…

Elizabeth Hamilton has been lost. Trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents, she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life. And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger and the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.

But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Elizabeth back home to the family she loves, just in time for Christmas. And being reunited with Luke and her children is better than anything Elizabeth could have imagined. As they all trim the tree and bake cookies, making new holiday memories, Elizabeth and Luke are drawn ever closer. Can the hurt of the past seven years be healed over the course of one Christmas season and bring the Hamiltons the gift of a new beginning?

Well, this one has been on my radar since The Cottages on Silver Beach came out! I was a tad nervous going in. I wasn't sure if I was going to like Elizabeth very much. What kind of mom does that to her kids? But low and behold the magic that is RaeAnne Thayne. Her ability to pull the reader in and create such moving stories and dialogue is simply amazing. I never should have doubted her storytelling magic.


Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky

From Grand Central Publishing 
Get your copy from Amazon today!

Christopher is seven years old. Christopher is the new kid in town. Christopher has an imaginary friend. The epic work of literary horror from the #1 bestselling author of THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER.

We can swallow our fear or let our fear swallow us.

Single mother Kate Reese is on the run. Determined to improve life for her and her son, Christopher, she flees an abusive relationship in the middle of the night with Christopher at her side. Together, they find themselves drawn to the tight-knit community of Mill Grove, Pennsylvania. It's as far off the beaten track as they can get. Just one highway in, one highway out.

At first, it seems like the perfect place to finally settle down. Then Christopher vanishes. For six awful days, no one can find him. Until Christopher emerges from the woods at the edge of town, unharmed but not unchanged. He returns with a voice in his head only he can hear, with a mission only he can complete: Build a tree house in the woods by Christmas, or his mother and everyone in the town will never be the same again.

Soon Kate and Christopher find themselves in the fight of their lives, caught in the middle of a war playing out between good and evil, with their small town as the battleground.

Well, if you're looking to find a read like Perks of Being a Wallflower... this ain't it! My googly goodness, ya'll! It has been a minute since I've delved into a book that has given me the heebie-beebies like this.

A perfect read to kick off the October / Halloween season!
