I'm so excited to announce that the cover for my Christmas short story, A SUPERSTITIOUS CHRISTMAS (Madness Under The Mistletoe Anthology) is here!!

Grandberry Falls is beautiful during Christmas. And Maggie Greenlee can’t wait for the Greenlee traditions to start, especially the annual ornament exchange.

Only things don’t go as planned once Maggie announces to the Greenlee clan that she’s engaged to Grady Cohen, one of the wealthiest bachelors in New York City.

There are two problems. One, Hazel Greenlee, Maggie’s granny and Grandberry Falls’ local matchmaker, has already determined that Maggie is going to marry Mayor Mitch Dozier. And two, Grady thinks the superstitious beliefs that have ruled Maggie’s life, are child like.

With Grady deliberately breaking every superstitious tradition, and Granny Hazel pushing Maggie in the arms of Mitch Dozier, Maggie isn’t sure she’s going to survive Christmas in Grandberry Falls.

Doesn't this look fun?? I had the best time writing this prequel to the last novel in the Grandberry Falls Series, Never Tell Your Dreams Before Breakfast.
Maggie and Granny Hazel have a VERY special place in my heart. And I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into their life!

Madness Under The Mistletoe will be available before Thanksgiving!!

The holidays have arrived, and nothing is going to steal the joy of Roxanne Bloom’s first Christmas in Honey Springs.

The town’s annual Christmas in the Park is underway and includes a Christmas Pawrade that’ll help the furry residents at Pet Palace get a home for Christmas. It’s not the four-legged creatures that steal the show, it’s the pair of legs sticking out from the Christmas tree lighting ceremony that has all the town talking. 

The suspects are piling up faster than the falling snow, while a murderer is on the loose. Roxy can’t let this ruin her first Christmas in Honey Springs and soon realizes it’s the ghosts of Christmas past that holds the real clues. But can she get this mystery solved in time for the holidays?
