Here's what the publisher says:
Here's what I think: I love Christmas stories, and this one did not disappoint! While I admit I'm a sap for any story set during the Christmas holiday, I was pleasantly surprised with the uniqueness of this story. No Holly for Christmas is not your typical holiday romance; it is instead a story full of suspense and intrigue. I was impressed with the author's ability to create realistic characters. She does a fantastic job of putting you inside of Holly's and Brian's heads, helping you see the real characters, faults and all. And Holly is not your typical heroine, which makes me like the story even more. I will warn you that there is some adult content, nothing that really crosses the line, but it does get intense in a few places. Overall, the author does a fantastic job of creating real characters you will connect with in this southern tale of loss, learning, and love.
No Holly for Christmas is available on Amazon.
