Christmas by Accident

by Camron Wright

Carter is an insurance adjuster whose longing for creative expression spills over sometimes into his accident reports. Abby works for her adoptive father, Uncle Mannie, in the family bookstore, the ReadMore Café. Carter barely tolerates Christmas; Abby loves it. She can't wait past October to build her favorite display, the annual Christmas book tree stack, which Carter despises.

When an automobile accident throws Carter and Abby together, Uncle Mannie, who is harboring secrets of his own, sees a chance for lasting happiness for his little girl. But there are so many hurdles, and not much time left. Will this Christmas deliver the miracle everyone is hoping for? Where love and Christmas are concerned, there are no accidents.

I LOVE it when the Christmas books start showing up!
This is a fun story you will definitely want to read.
LOVED the characters and how they came together.
Put this one on your READ THIS YEAR list.

And if you have not yet read The Rent Collector or the Orphan Keeper those are a MUST-READ right now!

Lies, Love, and Breakfast at Tiffany's

by Julie Wright

The Lie
Women in Hollywood are just pretty faces. But Silvia Bradshaw knows that’s a lie, and she’s ready to be treated as an equal and prove her worth as one of Hollywood’s newest film editors.

The Love
She and Ben Mason had worked together as editors before Silvia got her big break, so he’s the perfect person to ask for feedback on her first major film. But even as their friendship begins to blossom into something more, a lawsuit surfaces, jeopardizing both Ben and Silvia’s jobs—as well as their fledgling romance. Audrey Hepburn once said: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.” Silvia agrees. Or she used to. It’s one thing to risk her job and her heart, but can she really risk Ben’s, too? Does she have the right to make decisions for her own happiness when they affect so many other people?

The Breakfast
With everything to lose, Silvia meets Ben for breakfast at his favorite diner, Tiffany’s, for one last conversation before the credits roll on true love.

What a FUN BOOK!
LOVED the Audrey Hepburn theme!
This is a MUST-READ for sure-

My name is Flint, but everyone in middle school calls me Squint because I'm losing my vision. I used to play football, but not anymore. I haven't had a friend in a long time. Thankfully, real friends can see the real you, even when you can't clearly see.

Flint loves to draw. In fact, he's furiously trying to finish his comic book so he can be the youngest winner of the ''Find a Comic Star'' contest. He's also rushing to finish because he has keratoconus--an eye disease that could eventually make him blind.

McKell is the new girl at school and immediately hangs with the popular kids. Except McKell's not a fan of the way her friends treat this boy named Squint. He seems nice and really talented. He draws awesome pictures of superheroes. McKell wants to get to know him, but is it worth the risk? What if her friends catch her hanging with the kid who squints all the time?

McKell has a hidden talent of her own but doesn't share it for fear of being judged. Her terminally ill brother, Danny, challenges McKell to share her love of poetry and songwriting. Flint seems like someone she could trust. Someone who would never laugh at her. Someone who is as good and brave as the superhero in Flint's comic book named Squint.

Squint is the inspiring story of two new friends dealing with their own challenges, who learn to trust each other, believe in themselves, and begin to truly see what matters most.

This book is FANTASTIC!
You will learn some comic book rules, middle school rules, and  Grandma and Grandpa rules. PLUS if you join in the "Danny's Challenges" you will become a happier/better person.
LOVED IT! This is a MUST-READ for the whole family!

How far will she be forced to go to save the lives of everyone around her, including those she loves?

Out of Nowhere by Jeri Gilchrist
Work always comes first for small-town police detective, Ashlyn Lawrence. Often solving cases that have gone “cold,” she feels driven to provide closure to the victims’ families.

But she begins to question her choices when the dashing Tyler O’Bryan is appointed as her new captain. As Ashlyn fights her deepening feelings for Tyler, she is threatened by a succession of anonymous messages that suggest a connection between present events and the tragedy of her past. Perhaps now she can finally discover the reason behind her brother’s mysterious death—but it could cost her life.

As the threats escalate, Ashlyn seeks a safe haven—unwittingly returning to the one place that is anything but safe. In both mortal and spiritual danger, the struggling young detective finds she must rely on much more than her own strength—she needs both the Spirit and the help of others if she is to be saved.


Perfect Set by Melanie Jacobson
Bree Mercer is an ambitious sports reporter who has risen through the ranks to land her dream job. Basking in the sun, sea, and seriously cute guys in her new singles ward, things couldn't be better. That is, until she's assigned to write a feature on the one person she can't stand—professional beach volleyball player Kade Townsend. A typical cocky athlete, Kade's previous attempt to woo her was foiled by Bree's hard-and-fast rule: don't date athletes. Ever.

Kade loathes the media, and for good reason: when his hard-partying ways were exposed by a reporter who claimed to be his friend, the scandal rocked his entire family. Now reformed, Kade has put his life back together, and he has no interest in talking to reporters—least of all Bree Mercer. But when the pair is thrown together despite their best efforts, their chemistry is undeniable. They can't seem to put the brakes on their feelings—until their connection threatens Bree's reputation and Kade's hard-won redemption. Now they must decide if there is a place for love in their plans for the future.
