Christmas at the Candied Apple Cafe
The story of me writing Christmas books comes from my good friend Barb. When I moved to Chicago as a young mother of a four and nine-year-old and knew no one, one mom and I at the pre-school where my son was enrolled decided to go to lunch. Out of that lunch a friendship was born and even though I've moved several times since then it has endured.
At our lunch talked turned as it does to careers and when I mentioned I wrote romance novels Barb told me her favorites were holiday stories, had I ever written one? Well, no, I hadn't but I wanted to and it all started with a Christmas novella from Kensington years ago and now a full fledged Christmas novel, CHRISTMAS AT THE CANDIED APPLE CAFE.
Here's a blurb:
There's nothing so magical as Christmas in New York...
Santa is coming to New York!
Snow is falling, excitement is high and the delicious scent of chocolate drifts along Fifth Avenue – the Candied Apple Café is ready for Christmas! And no one is busier than publicist Iona Summerlin. With so much to do, she doesn’t have time to think about men, dating, or the fact her last boyfriend ditched her for her brother… Relationships are off the menu!
Hotel boss Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to the first Christmas since losing his wife. His six-year-old daughter Sofia has lost her belief in Christmas magic along with her mother, and he has no idea what to do. But an unusually festive business meeting at the Candied Apple – and meeting the beautiful Iona – starts to defrost Mads’ frozen heart, and suddenly life seems full of light and sparkle again.
If only they dare to believe, maybe all their Christmas dreams will come true!
