Why September Is My Favorite Month ~ Jean C. Gordon

September is my favorite month for so many reasons. First my birthday is in September and our wedding anniversary is September 8. Second, September weather is usually nice, not too warm, not too cold. Also living in the Hudson River Valley between the Adirondack Mounts and the Catskill Mountains, we get beautiful fall foliage. And there's local apple cider and apples of all colors, descriptions, and flavors. I favor a nice crisp Empire apple, but there are so many other tasty ones, too.

September is also back-to-school time in our area. I was nerdy enough to look forward to going back to school, right through college. Then, there was getting our daughter and son off to school and, after that, putting our granddaughter and grandson on the bus.

This September, I have another reason to like the month ~ the debut of my holiday story Caro's Gift, which I really enjoyed writing. It's Book 2 in the Small-Town Christmas Wishes series from six Sweet Romance Reads authors:

1. Mia's Gift by Cindy Flores Martinez
2. Caro's Gift by Jean C. Gordon
3. Nate's Gift by  Jackie Castle
4. Sara's Gift by Kimberly Rose Johnson
5. Hold's Gift by Josie Riviera and
6. Taye's Gift by Pat Simmons

They can be read individually, but the overarching premise of each book in the series is so heartwarming, you won't want to miss a single one. All six are available for preorder for 99-cents now and will release together on September 30 at 99-cents for a limited time.

Small-Town Christmas Wishes

Welcome to Snowflake, Colorado—a small town where wishes come true! When six old high school friends receive a letter that their fellow friend, Charity Hart, wrote before she passed away, their lives take an unexpected turn. She leaves them each a check for $1,500 and asks them to grant a wish—a secret wish—for someone else by Christmas. It sounds simple but the friends soon discover that it isn’t as easy as it seems! With the clock ticking, will they make it happen in time?

Join Mia, Caro, Nate, Sara, Holly, and Taye on their journey to make a wish come true—and find love along the way.

Caro's Gift
Friendship, memories and wishes are powerful things and in the small town of Snowflake, Colorado they combine to form a memorial to a lost friend. Following her death, Charity Hart left six of her close high school friends, including Caro Price, fifteen hundred dollars each and an assignment to use that money to grant someone else’s secret wish by Christmas.

Temporarily back in Snowflake to help her beloved grandmother recover from an illness, nurse practitioner Caro is on the hunt for a recipient for her secret angel gift. A chance encounter in a specialty store focuses Caro’s interest on a red-headed little girl fascinated by a nativity scene.

Caro’s grandmother has matchmaking on her mind as she pushes Caro and her neighbor, Simon Novak, together. It turns out that Simon coaches the little redhead’s older brother at the high school. With Simon’s help, Caro tries to learn more about the family and it quickly becomes apparent that the widowed mother and her two children are struggling financially. But is there more going on than meets the eye, for Caro sees flashes of fear in their eyes.

Christmas is the season of wishes, and Caro, with God's guidance, is determined to make one little girl’s dream a reality! And, maybe, just maybe, fulfill a dream of her own!
