(POST 1 of 3 for Tuesday)
Happy Holidays, friends! Jo-Ann Roberts here. Welcome to Day 2 of Cowboys and Mistletoe event.
In addition to writing sweet historical romance, my second love is quilting. For more than twenty years, a group of 6-8 friends get together for Quilt Week. It’s a ten-day retreat in the Pennsylvania Amish Country. When we started, we came up with the idea of a Quilting Challenge. At the end of the week, we pick a new pattern or a line of fabric and come up with a quilt. The following year, we show off our creations. We have donated these quilts to shelters, veterans’ groups, and hospitals.
So…when author Zina Abbott asked me if I’d be interested in participating in the Christmas Quilt Bride series, I gave a very enthusiastic “YES!” I already had the quilting background, so the story came together quickly. Noelle – Christmas Quilt Brides released in December 2022. Due to the popularity of Christmas and quilts, she extended the invitation again this year. Hope – Christmas Quilt Brides will release on December 5th…and there’s more good news…the series will continue in 2024!
A widow reluctant to love again…
A deputy determined to win her heart…
Two years ago, Noelle Prentiss lost her husband to an outlaw’s bullet. With two children to raise, a small farm to tend, and a job making quilts to sell at the mercantile, she’s doing her best to keep her property and life intact…until a man claiming to be the new deputy rides into her life captivating her children with his dog, his smile, and his easy-going charm.
When Coleman West agrees to stop by the Widow Prentiss’s home on his first day as a deputy in a small Kansas town, he has no way of knowing obeying the sheriff’s order will change his life. Spurned by love years before, he became a lawman, dedicated to protect and serve. Yet, he has no idea the widow and her children would call to his heart in a way he never expected.
With Christmas looming, will the growing attraction between Noelle and the deputy reveal the gift of a second chance?
Or could a stranger from the deputy’s past threaten the man who captured her heart?
My giveaway for one lucky winner is a digital edition of Noelle – the Christmas Quilt Brides!
Below you will find three statements, two are true, one is not.
Guess the lie in the comments to be entered in the drawings.
Winners and answers will be announced on Sunday 12/03.
The last year I taught PreK, the teacher scheduled to play Mrs. Santa Claus for the annual PTO Breakfast with Santa fundraiser fell ill a few days before the event. Maybe it was my grey hair, my short stature, or my rimless glasses, but I played Mrs. Santa Claus at a children’s Christmas Party!
Christmas movies in July?…love them all as I sip on my iced tea…Come October, November, December, I toggle between both Hallmark networks, Up Television, and Great American Country but…I’ve never seen the movie, Elf.
I love wrapping presents! Not just at Christmas but for birthdays, Easter, whatever! However, my family always knows which presents are mine because they are so difficult to remove the bows, ribbons, and decorations. I get teased about it every time!
From Our Home to Yours, Happy Holidays!
