I’m so happy to be part of the Christmas Mountain clean holiday romance series. There are seven books in the series, ready to bring you a heaping of holiday cheer.
Each book can be read on its own as a stand-alone, or read them in order — your choice! The first three books take place in year one while the next four take place during year two.
All of the books are written in first person, which was a first for me! I really had such a good time crawling in my character’s head. Carol Bennett is smart, sassy, and secretive. She also has crazy ninja-like self defense skills which she accidentally puts to use against the hero, Tim Burke. He makes jokes about her name being Carol Burnett (she isn’t a redhead) and she teases him about being called “Timber” because of his name and because he’s as big as a tree. Truly, it was fun to imagine myself as Carol as I wrote the story. However, I did discover when I write in first person, my sarcasm tends to drip out much more frequently than with my other stories.
Another fun thing about the books is that the seven women featured in them were all school chums. Now they are grown and have returned to their hometown of Christmas Mountain for a variety of reasons. Not one of them came with plans of falling in love, though!
Here’s a little about each sweet story:
by Ciara Knight
Eight years after fleeing Christmas Mountain because of a high school prank gone wrong, Ashley Brooks receives a mysterious letter from her mentor asking her to come home. She arrives to face all she left behind—her family, her friends, and the rich boy she’d loved who would never date the girl from the wrong side of town.

Rumor Has It
by Melinda Curtis
Twelve unlucky years ago, rumors flew about Lexi and Kevin. And now? Well, not much has changed, except this time neither can run away. Not from Christmas Mountain. And maybe . . . not from each other.
As a political strategist at Dunlop Bennet & Associates, Lexi Townsend’s career is going nowhere. She’s a cubical dweller writing speeches for freshmen senators in DC. But if she can hitch her career wagon to a rising political star, she’ll be on her way to a corner office in no time. When she’s offered a plum holiday assignment–an ideal candidate with deep pockets, someone who could make the leap from local to national politics–she starts to dream about that corner office.
Until she realizes her candidate is Kevin O’Malley, aka Kevin the Hottie, Kevin the Snob, Kevin the Liar, the same guy who shattered her high school reputation back home in Christmas Mountain with a rumor. Assignment in hand, Lexi braces herself for the most difficult political race of her career–because this time it’s personal.
