Sleigh Bells In The Snow

Congratulations to "Jo-Anne B.", the winner in Claire's giveaway. Please contact JUST CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE to claim your prize.

Sleigh Bells in the Snow, my new Christmas romance, is here! It's thrilling to have it out in the world and to hear from readers who have really enjoyed the story.

Sleigh Bells in the Snow is a sweet romance, meaning that if it was a movie it would be rated PG. (Or even just G!) It's the story of Scarlett Ray, who owns a home decor shop in the sweet Christmas-obsessed town of Christmas Town, Maine. She receives an eviction notice from her new landlord, Chase Bailey, and sparks fly between these two completely different people, who, it turns out, have a lot to learn from each other.

Throw in the merry and bright ambiance of Christmas Town, a corgi named Holly with a vast collection of Christmas sweaters, some family drama and a vivid supporting cast, and you have a fun, heartwarming, holiday romance!

Sleigh Bells in the Snow is a part of the 12 Days of Heartwarming Christmas sweet romance series. These are 12 connected full-length novels, all set in the fictional world of Christmas Town, Maine. Harlequin Heartwarming authors created Christmas Town and have been writing in it for five years now.

This year was my first time writing in Christmas Town. I'd read some of the stories before, so I was excited to be asked to join this year's group of authors. It was really fun to set a novel in this quirky, festive town!

Six books (including mine) center around planning a Christmas Eve wedding. Six books center around the renovation of the Christmas Town carousel where the wedding will take place. All 12 stories end at that Christmas Eve wedding!

Here is the official back cover summary of the book:

Scarlett Ray owns a home d├ęcor shop full of Christmas cheer, but she isn’t feeling much holiday spirit. Her to-do list is overwhelming and it’s tough to navigate the first Christmas since her parents’ divorce. Then she learns that her landlord is planning to tear down the beautiful, historic building where she lives and works!

Chase Bailey hates to remove such a great looking building, but it’s falling apart and beyond repair. Plus, he needs to turn a profit so he can start a trust fund for his autistic brother. His decision seems simple until Chase meets his quirky, fiery tenant. Scarlett swears she’ll challenge him every step of the way to save the old building she loves.

Chase and Scarlett gear up for a fight, but the battle lines get blurry when they find themselves working on the same volunteer project. It’s hard to stay enemies when anger becomes friendship, and friendship feels a lot like love.

  1. Congrats on the book release, love that adorable cover! Thank you for adding another holiday story to my tbr list - I never say no to holiday stories, lol. :)

  2. Church Christmas Eve ... followed by a late supper at a neighbour's party ... followed by later drinks at another neighbour's house. (So I guess you could say being with family, as all three of these activities qualify....)
    And yes, thank you for writing a holiday story. I can't get enough of these feel-good stories - I enjoy them ANY time of year.

  3. I always love Christmas stories! My favorite part of Christmas is that it brings about people I don't get to see often during the year. It's the perfect excuse to have a night of fun and love!! That's also why I just love Christmas reads.

  4. Most... I enjoy sitting back and just looking at my Christmas tree lights. I like to turn off all the lights in the house and have no noise.

  5. Oh I love that cover... so much fun!
    Love the decorations, the music, the yummy baked goods, the smiles on Christmas Day, the smell of the Christmas tree... :)

  6. I love decorating the house for Christmas, inside and out. I especially like seeing the tree with twinkling lights.

  7. Hi -- since I'm a Muslim I don't really have anything to do with Christmas. BUT, I do love to read all the stories or watching movie that has holiday-themed to it :). Congrats on your book, by the way.

  8. I love decorating for Christmas and singing carols!! And really, just everything about it including holiday reads.
