Ho-ho-ho! Welcome to my little door of the advent calendar. It’s very cozy in here! I’d like to thank RJ for having me over to visit today. I’m so very fortunate to be able to call her one of my closest friends even if her taste in hockey teams is a wee bit hinky. *winks*
It’s beginning to look, and feel, a lot like Christmas here on my little hobby farm. Living in the northernmost part of Pennsylvania our Christmases are usually cold, blustery, and snowy. It’s truly a beautiful sight to awaken to the woods lying silent and white. Residing by state game lands surrounded by mountain laurel, I was inspired to begin my Laurel Holidays books last year. Each of these holiday reads takes place in Pennsylvania or New York State and are standalones. The only thing linking them is where they’re set and lots of snowy MM romance!
The second Laurel Holidays book, The Christmas Pundit, comes out tomorrow and I cannot wait for people to meet Evan and Gideon! If you’re a fan of small towns, enemies to lovers, and lots of homespun romance then this is the book for you! You can find a link, blurb, and cover below.
May you and yours have a joyous and safe holiday season! Thanks so much for dropping by and have a look at the competition below…
Will two complete opposites learn to cross party lines to benefit their beloved hometown and save Christmas?
Evan Griffiths is enjoying his tenure as the mayor of Cedarburg, Pennsylvania. While it may barely be a blip on the state map, it’s where he grew up, and he’s thrilled to be at the helm of the tiny rural community. With the recent election in the past, Evan can focus on his agenda to bring Cedarburg out of the fifties. Being the first gay mayor in the town’s history is a good start but there’s plenty more to do. His first big job is expanding the yearly Christmas Carnival to lure tourists to his fiscally challenged birthplace. Things seem to be moving along at a good pace then a ghost from Christmases past arrives on the morning bus.
As soon as Gideon Pierce returns to Cedarburg he picks up right where he left off back in elementary school—tormenting Evan at every turn. Only this time instead of shoving Evan down on the playground, Gideon is bedeviling him with snippy editorials in the local paper. Gideon is no longer the gangly, bucktoothed kid he used to be. When his gaze keeps touching on Gideon’s mouth and the appreciative fire in his brilliant holly green eyes, Evan finds it harder and harder to keep his mind on witty replies to Gideon’s cutting viewpoints.
