Dear Reader,

For my American readers, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It's one of my favorite holidays. It's just a great time to reconnect with loved ones you don't see as often as you'd like. If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m in the middle of a kitchen renovation. Meaning, I have no kitchen. No stove, no sink, no cabinets! So Thanksgiving was no work at all for me. I just showed up.

If you braved the stores on Black Friday, I hope you found great bargains to make everyone on your gift list smile. Keep reading for a contest that's sure to make you smile—more than twenty books in the prize package!

Categories for Christmas Contest


In 2014, the Mischief Bay series debuted with The Girls of Mischief Bay, and now it's available for the first time in mass market paperback. (It's also still available in trade paperback, ebook, and audiobook.) Nicole's husband quit his job to write a screenplay he won't let her see, leaving Nicole with the burden of supporting him and their son. Pam finds out she's about to become a grandmother, and she handles the news with far less grace than she'd hoped. Shannon's story is pure romance.

"Both heart-wrenching and warmhearted... A discerning, affecting look at three women facing surprising change and the powerful and uplifting impact of friends." – Kirkus Reviews

Plus more than 1,000 readers just like you reviewed The Girls of Mischief Bay on Amazon, giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
