“Escape to the Country” Christmas Novellas

OPERATION WHITE CHRISTMAS

Hollie Douglas has always dreamed of a white Christmas: carolers, pudding, chestnuts roasting on an open fire. But in her dreams, she shared that fire’s hearth with a husband, and two months before her big day, her fiancé broke her heart and left.

 Now, determined to go ahead with her honeymoon anyway, Hollie’s plans are going awry. It’s the day before Christmas Eve and she is stuck in the middle of a snowstorm in rural Canada. Thankfully, luck is on her side.

When Jim Bell braved a snowstorm to search for one of his orphaned animals, he didn’t expect he’d be rescuing a stranded Australian tourist too. A widower, Jim has been dreading another Christmas without his wife, and he wonders if offering the stranded Hollie shelter is something he can bear.

Jim quickly realizes Hollie is carrying as much emotional baggage as him. But as he helps Hollie fulfil her dream of a white Christmas, the winter wonderland and spirit of Christmas may yet work their healing magic on both of them.

OPERATION MISTLETOE MAGIC

Christmas is looking grim for Melissa Allen. She has no one to celebrate with as her boyfriend of five years left her for her best friend and, after losing her home in a fire, she has nowhere to live. Left with no choice, she accepts the offer to stay with family friends Rob and Linda Nicholls.

Chris Nicholls is excited about bringing his five year old daughter, Jasmine, home to Lakefield, Ontario for her first white Christmas. The trip is a surprise for his parents, though no one is more surprised than Chris when he finds his childhood best friend in his parent’s spare room. Surprise soon turns to delight as Chris has always had feelings for Melissa, feelings that are only getting stronger the longer they are together.

But Melissa has had her fill of heartbreak, and isn’t willing to fall for a man who is only going to leave. And Jasmine? She doesn’t want to share her daddy with anyone. If Chris has any hope of convincing Melissa and Jasmine that they have a future together as a family, he’ll need all the mistletoe magic he can get.
