Christmas may come but once a year, but this seasonal collection of five holiday tales especially for young adults provides enough love, laughter and joy to last the whole year long! More
Introduction: Welcome to Snowflake!
And welcome to Snowflake.
Snowflake, South Carolina, that is.
No matter what time of year it is in your neck of the woods, it’s always Christmas in Snowflake!
That’s because Snowflake is the fictional town I created for my first contemporary holiday romance, A Town Called Snowflake (Musa Publishing, 2011) and its follow up, Greetings from Snowflake (Musa, 2013).
It’s a kind of Hallmark town, with gingerbread inspired cottages and a Norman Rockwell Main Street where stores like Snowflake Sweets and Treats, the Books ‘N Beans and Simply Snowflake feature prominently.
For the first time ever, this seasonal collection contains five romantic stories that are exclusively for young adults. They’re all very different, but they all have one thing in common: they all take place in Snowflake during the festive holiday season.
In our first story, A Silent Night in Snowflake, two sworn enemies find comfort – and love – by the cozy fire of an empty bookstore on Christmas Eve.
In our next story, Dumping Dexter, Christmas break is almost over and it’s time for ultra-cool Kira Loftgren to finally dump mega-dork Dexter Dempsey.
Sure, they had a brief, if spicy, winter fling but she can’t exactly be seen with someone like Dexter once school starts back up in the New Year. But when her holiday play thing breaks up with her first, it turns out Dumping Dexter is going to be a lot harder than Kira thought…
Next up is Now Showing in Snowflake, where a Christmas Eve shift at the Snowflake Cinemas turns into a real blockbuster for one lonely movie theater usher and her surprise customer.
Then we have a paranormal twist on the holidays in our fourth story, The Ghost in the Aisle Seat. It's Christmas Eve and Haley Smythe is working the late shift at Snowflake Cinema. But she's not alone.
At her side is a notorious local ghost hunter, out for his biggest scoop yet. And in Theater 6 is a man who claims to see his wife – his dead wife – in that very cinema, every year on Christmas Eve. As the three converge on this holiday night, secrets will be revealed and all will meet... The Ghost in the Aisle Seat.
Finally, in A Snowflake Christmas Story, what starts out as a boring home-for-Christmas job at the local Books ‘N Beans Café becomes anything but when a mysterious – and adorable – bookworm starts making nightly appearances.
I hope you enjoy these five festive stories, and not just because they’re all FREE!
Merry Christmas wherever you live, and whatever time of year it is.
