Cozy Christmas Reads

05 Dec

My publisher, Pelican Book Group, releases a collection of Christmas novellas every year. During the month of December, they’re specially priced at .99 cents at online retailers. These delightful novellas range in setting and styles, each guaranteed to take you somewhere new. So download these titles to your eReader, settle in next to the fireplace with a hot cup of coffee, and prepare to be entertained.


Today, I’m highlighting Christmas Extravaganza title Gumbo Weather by Marian P. Merritt. Here’s a description to get started:

Colorado sports reporter, Noel Winters heads to Louisiana after finding love letters in her deceased mother’s belongings. When her car breaks down near Bijou Bayou, a handsome, struggling pitcher and part-time mechanic comes to her rescue by fixing her car, and offering to help her find her father. Only problem? As her alias, Micki Barrett, Noel wrote an article criticizing Justin Gravois’s big league debut. Now she’s fallen for him, can she ever find the courage to tell him the truth?gumbo-weather

Justin Gravois, professional pitcher, wanted to make his uncle proud. When he finally got his shot, his dream turned into a nightmare. It didn’t help that sports reporter, Micki Barrett, wrote such terrible things about him. Now, Justin wants to forget about the past and move forward to next season. When he falls in love with Noel he wonders if she’s an answer to his prayer.

Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? What a great cover!
