Here are four warm and fuzzy tales great for a holiday night before a fire from four top-of-the-line authors.
Michaels’ “Holiday Magic” has ski shop manager Stephanie scraping to give her kids a real Christmas present — a home of their own — but boss Eddie is making life difficult. In “A Very Merry Christmas” by Lamb, Meredith’s to-do list keeps getting longer and sexy rancher Logan is just one more thing she doesn’t need — until she finds out that there’s always time for some things. Tara is flying to Maui to avoid her family holiday — but then they decide to follow in Carter’s “A Very Maui Christmas.” But she meets a handyman with a magic touch who puts the sparkle back in Christmas. In DuLong’s “A Cedar Key Christmas,” Josie is proud of her daughter for helping a man restore his home and when the man’s nephew pays a visit, she sees what a good deed can bring.
