Sweet Romance Christmas Kristin Wallace

This month we celebrate Christmas. It’s a wonderful time of joy when the world seems to get a little nicer (hopefully). It’s also a time when many enjoy snuggling up with a good book in front of a roaring fire (if it’s cold enough, which it rarely is where I live in Florida.) I thought I would provide a few suggestions for good reads from some pretty wonderful authors. They are my fellow Sweet Romance Authors.

I'm going to be sneaky and start with my own book, a Shellwater Key holiday tale...

Annaliese Matheson once had the perfect life, with a successful career on Broadway and a loving husband who was her greatest champion. Then her husband died. Devastated, she left the stage behind and only returned when her best friend, Grayson Kendall, asked her to perform at The Paradise Dinner Theatre in tiny Shellwater Key, Florida.

Annaliese is convinced she’ll never love again, but when she steps in to direct to Middle School Christmas Show, nothing will ever be the same. A man unlike any she’s known awakens her buried heart, giving her a second chance at forever with the last person she would have expected. It will take a miracle for Annaliese to let someone else in and embrace happiness again...but then it is Christmas.
