The Partridge will be celebrating its one year anniversary come December and is still going strong. A delightful tale about a little town struggling to survive. Their only hope, mail-order brides! 

Reverend Chase Hammond hoped was in a pickle. If he didn’t get the men of Noelle married, his and every other man’s hopes of having the railroad come would die, Noelle right along with it. But planning to marry the men off to save the town and actually doing it were two different things. Some didn’t like the idea, thinking a mining town should be mining, not marrying! But that was only one of Chase Hammond’s problems. Problems that if not fixed immediately, would seal Noelle’s fate …
Felicity Partridge was in trouble. Big trouble. An active voice for Suffragettes, she’d managed to get herself arrested more than a few times. Now her father demanded she marries to keep her out of more trouble. But how could she further the cause of women shackled to a husband? But when her father gave her the choice between marriage and jail, she decided it best to further her cause elsewhere, and Noelle, Colorado seemed just the place to do it! Especially when she found out who her husband to be was …
Unfortunately, he had other ideas about marrying.  Amazon Link



Christmas in Clear Creek, another Christmas favorite!

Bowen Drake had a gift. Unfortunately, he didn’t want it. He even went so far as to do ‘bad’ in order to thwart the ‘good’ that seemed to follow him everywhere! For when HE needed it the darn thing didn’t do HIM any good at all! He tried drinking, he tried womanizing, he even tried outlawing, but nothing worked. Finally, he stumbles into the little town of Clear Creek and there discovers why we’ve been given the gifts we have…

Elsie Waller came to Clear Creek after the death of her grandfather. She had high hopes for her life in the little town including looking for a husband. Imagine her elation when she happens upon the man of her dreams the very day after she arrives! Of course, the fact he was half frozen did put a damper on things, but once the townsfolk of Clear Creek thawed him out she endeavored to make sure Bowen Drake stayed around long enough to see she’d make him a mighty fine wife! The only question was, how?

Enjoy Bowen and Elsie’s fanciful tale of mishaps, miracles, and love!   Amazon Link

  18. Kit, that book cover is beautiful!

    1. I’m guessing you mean for The Partridge? My goodness, when you have a chance, go onto Amazon and look at the rest of the books in the series. The cover artist did a fantastic job on everyone’s covers. I think they’d make great Christmas ornaments!

  20. This is a nice a quick way to have a chance to win something. Thanks for making this so easy and it’s nice to be here.

    1. Hi Dorothy, I’m eager to see the prize list and hope I see your name on it! I’m glad you found it easy. We had a hiccup or two along the way, but that’s part of learning something new. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season. Hugs, Phyliss

  21. i love reading so much i cant imagine my life without my books,,i dont do ebooks i like turning the pages old school,,i remember when i was in high school,i would go to the lib.everyday and check out a book,,i was a speed reader so i read a book a night,,we were poor so i never had many of my own but i sure wore that library out ,,lol not as fast a reader as i used to be but still can finish one or 2 a week

    1. That’s still pretty fast, Vickie! My reading has slowed over the years too. Gads, I’ve graduated to the large print books! Glad you stopped by!

  22. Hi Miss Vickie. Good to hear from you. I’m like you about the feel of turning a page. I do download a lot of books, as it’s nice when I’m away from home, but a “real” book is my favorite. I’m a slow reader and since I’m a post-war baby and our town had an air force base, there were so many kids to start school that we could only go a half a day. That put me behind in my reading and I was a late bloomer. Never would I have ever thought I’d be a published author today. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday. Hugs, Phyliss

  23. Hey my filly sisters! You know what? Readers are not the ONLY ones who are excited about all these wonderful Christmas reads! I’m dying to get my hands on these books and just binge on reading them over the holidays! Can’t wait to just relax with some great stories!

    1. I think we all feel the same, Cheryl. We’ll all be reading each other’s books the rest of the month!

      1. Right, Kit! So many great stories!

  24. I am now following Mary, Kit, and Phyliss on BookBub.
