A Holiday Romance Anthology to gift yourself and the romance reader on our Shopping list! By Peggy Jaeger

 I love holiday Romance books. RomComs, fairytales come true, secret babies...I don't care what the trope is as long as the story takes place at Christmas-time.

This year I was honored to be included in a brand new Holiday Romance Anthology called CHRISTMAS COMES TO DICKENS. 10 Bestselling and Award winning authors, all with a small town romance centered around the fictional New England town of Dickens ( Yes, think Charles!) and taking place in the weeks just before the holiday rings in.

 Dickens is a quaint New England town bustling with excitement and anticipation for the upcoming Christmas holiday. From the annual tree lighting in the town square, a snowman building competition, ice skating on Grosvenor’s Pond, and horse-drawn sleigh rides, you can take advantage of all the festivities. You’re even welcome to cut down your own Christmas tree at Gridley Meadows, or join in the caroling on the Common.

Dickens offers an abundance of heartfelt wishes and a few much needed miracles. Families reunite, new friends are made, and old flames take a second chance at happiness. All while celebrating this most joyful time of the year.

Included in the Anthology are the following stories:

Millie’s Awesome Holiday Miracle by Top 100 Author Nancy Fraser ~ She’s an overworked single mom struggling to make ends meet. He’s the handsome CEO who’s come to Dickens to save—or close—the toy factory. Can one precocious little girl bring a couple of much-needed miracles to the people she cares about most?

Miracle At Holly Hill Inn by Top 100 Author Maddie James ~ Ariana is looking for the perfect Christmas village. Instead, she finds the town Scrooge. Will two days snowbound together at Holly Hill Inn bring them closer together, or send them each on their merry way?

Holiday Hearts by Top 100 Author Caroline Clemmons ~ Laura Jordan’s beauty and sense of humor are more apparent than her sharp mind, soft heart, and strict code of right and wrong. Ward Callahan has avoided romantic complications to throw himself into building his ad agency. Once he meets Laura, he falls hard but must convince her that dating her boss is not inappropriate. Can he convince her he doesn’t want her heart only for the holidays, but forever?

The Tinsel Tango by Best Selling Author Bonnie Edwards ~ Brenna needs some R&R over Christmas in Dickens. Tango lessons from mysterious Jett…Smith? may bring her everything her heart desires, but his secrets may kill the love they find.

Wisdom of the Heart by USA Today Best Selling Author Liz Flaherty ~ They were best friends who fell in love, but that was high school. Life and families and other loves had happened since that dear and distant time. They're friends again, comfortable with each other and having so much fun at Christmas time in Dickens. They're not still in love, but...wait...could it be happening again?

Operation Snowball by Best Selling Author Kathryn Hills ~ Returning to small town life is hard for Army veteran John Gridley. The last thing he expects to find is love with the beautiful widow, Heather Murphy. Can the perfect Christmas tree and a missing cat named Snowball bring them together despite meddling townsfolk?

Angel Kisses and Holiday Wishes by Best Selling Author Peggy Jaeger  (That's me, hee hee!)

 ~ When Sage left town 18 years ago, she left Keith's heart in tatters. Now she's back, and he's wondering if they can put the past behind them and rekindle the love they lost.

Holly’s Wish by Top 100 Author Kathleen Lawless ~ What if the girl who got away is actually standing right in front of you? Years earlier, Nico and Holly shared one magical Christmas Eve. She never stopped wishing he’d find where she left her number.
When he does, is it too late?

Holiday Heart Wishes by Award Winning Author Lucinda Race ~ On her way into Dickens to visit family, Vera picks up Tony, a stranded motorist. Rather than part ways when they arrive, they discover their loved ones are intent on getting married. Can they slow down the older couple's rush to the altar? Or, will holiday heart wishes come true for everyone?

Santa’s Wish by Best Selling Author Jan Scarbrough ~ Will Christmas magic help them overcome Roz’s career ambitions and Cooper’s grief, and bring them together for a second chance at love?

The authors have even complied a Cookie Recipe Companion for the book featuring 20 cookie recipes for your holiday baking this year. CHRISTMAS COMES TO DICKENS lists for only 99cents and the Cookie Companion is the authors' gift to you for free!

If you need to buy an ebook as a gift for someone on your list this year, I really recommend gifting them this one. Hours of reading pleasure filled with second chance romance, reunited lovers, and HEA's to fill anyone's holiday fix. Forget Hallmark, Netflix, and Lifetime movies - they are all basically the same plot with different actors! The book is always better than the movie, anyway, hee hee.

En joy, and happy reading!
