Writing a holiday romance was a new adventure for me. I normally create dark, edgy stories with a paranormal flavoring. Journey of the Magi is a sweet romance with cute children, a scruffy dog, a winter blizzard and two people avoiding love. Just the read for a cozy winter night in front of the fire.
Here's the opportunity to have a lot of new readers find that they like the way I write. It's enough to make me shiver with fear. I admit that I love to write and I enjoy having a reader say s/he liked my book. The closest I can come in my other life is when someone admires my child. It is similar. Both are my creations.
Widow Noel Martin never breaks promises, and she promised her kids they'd have Christmas at her childhood home in Connecticut. But driving across country takes money. Noel is broke when a snowstorm blows them into a tiny Minnesota café owned by a man who can change her mind. She accepts his offer of a job. Despite her attraction to him, she makes it clear she is only temporary help.
Dan Longstreet isn't adopting any more strays, but he needs a waitress. Dan works so hard to make his café a success, he doesn't have time for love. Though Noel's slender blonde beauty stuns him and her two adorable children tug at his heart, he denies how they threaten to change his life.
When tragedy strikes, their new-found love is the first victim. Noel can't stay and Dan can't leave. Will their journey be the gift that reunites them?
