Georgia Darcy never asked to be a movie star’s little sister but nothing will keep her from getting to her brother’s wedding on Christmas Day. Even if Mother Nature thwarts her traveling plans.

When all flights cancel, she’s unexpectedly paired with a chronically unlucky rideshare and his overly cute dog, finding that turbulence isn’t exclusive to airplanes. Especially when it comes to her feelings.

Doomed with nutty disasters of ridiculous proportions, the cockeyed couple is forced to find creative means to trek it across the country. Will they find romance along the way or will a few secrets and a sleigh full of questions prevent them from jingling all the way home in time for the holidays?

Sleet, snow, and a Winnebago. It’ll take a Christmas miracle to navigate their stormy attraction to one another and reach Pemberley for Christmas.

If you love cute dogs, living nativities, mistletoe kisses, and all the Christmas feels, spend an afternoon snuggled up with Georgia, Wyatt, and Reeses the Jack Russell Terrier in Driving Miss Darcy.

Christmas, love, and a batch of cookies.

Former bookshop keeper Leela Miller is back in Massey Falls. Her mom passed away last spring, and she’s home taking care of her ailing father. Now, Leela is desperate to fill Mom’s shoes in the Ladies’ Auxiliary by chairing the Cookie House fundraiser. The hitch: mean-eyed Mrs. Coldicott refuses to host the event at her Society Row home as planned.

Leela must find a new venue big enough and fancy enough to draw in customers, or Mom’s event might get canceled. There’s only one perfect place: the Layton Mansion.

New vet school graduate Jay Wilson has been remodeling the Layton Mansion since he inherited it this summer. It’s almost Christmas, and the house is nearly ready to flip!

If he can get a good price for it, he can buy a partnership at a veterinary clinic out of town.

However, by stipulation of the will, Jay can’t sell the house until he cleans out the attic.

Jay needs help completing the enormous task before his deadline. The beautiful Leela will eagerly help—if he agrees to allow her to use the house for her event. But, when Jay learns that the Cookie House event is the same day as his sale deadline, will he sell the house out from under the girl he might just be falling in love with?

The Christmas Cookie House is Book 1 in the Christmas House Romance series by award-winning author Jennifer Griffith. Other books in the series include The Sleigh Bells Chalet and The Holiday Hunting Lodge.

Day 13 CCB Cover

Such a tiny lie… 

Desperation drove her… 

She couldn’t know the risk… 

After the death of her grandmother, Melody Fraser must quickly leave what has been her home in South Carolina. There are those who think she murdered her Nana Fraser. She’s innocent but there’s talk about arrest and prosecution. To escape, this Southern Belle agrees to become a mail-order bride in far away Montana. Several of her friends will be living in the same town. Traveling so far to marry a man she’s never met is daunting. Surely things will work out, won’t they?

Nicholas “Nick” Walker is a doctor from Gettysburg whose wife and children were killed when mortar fire destroyed their home. Eager to escape the memories and ravages of the Civil War, he buys a medical practice in Montana Territory. He wants a competent nurse who can assist him with operations and care for patients as his plans expand for a hospital. He wants a well-organized wife to keep him company and start a family. With his usual efficiency, he combines the two into one job description when he requests a mail-order bride.What will it take to teach Nick that—although she isn’t what he expected—Melody is exactly what he needs?

Excerpt

She opened the oven and removed a pan of golden biscuits. After setting the pan on the table, she set a platter of ham beside the bread.

She didn’t look at him. “I didn’t know how you like your eggs so we’re having them scrambled.”

“Actually, that’s my preference.” He sat at the table.

When she’d set the bowl on the table and was seated she nodded at him. “Time for you to say the blessing.”

He sat frozen. Not since he’d lost Jenny and the children had he uttered a prayer. Did he remember how? Did God remember him?

Melody sent him a disapproving glance. “If you’ve lost your voice, take another swallow of coffee. Maybe that’ll loosen your tongue.”

Cheeky woman. He glared at her before he bowed his head and offered a brief blessing.
