Loads of Holiday Cheer - By Jackie Castle

Sometimes the Christmas season can be difficult to get through. It has for my family after the loss of a loved one to cancer.

I've found that to keep away from the holiday blues, I surround myself by things that are good, happy, cheerful and positive.

I surround myself with friends and family that care for and love me.
I take stock of all the good things in my life, even writing them in my gratitude journal.
I make myself participate in holiday festivities such as parties, decorating, and music.

If you need a bit of holiday cheer, here are all my sweet romance books that center around this festive season. Enjoy!

However, she has grand ideas for her inheritance even if the town has thrown up their objections to her plans.
