Sneak Peek by Merrillee Whren

 Lots of retailers do a Christmas in July for a promotion to sell their merchandise. Authors often do the same thing by promoting Christmas books in July. Well, it's not July, but I'm giving you a sneak peek of the cover for the novella I'm writing for the Puppies for Christmas that several of us Sweet Romance Reads authors have been doing for a few years. So here it is.

I have loved all the covers for my Puppies for Christmas novellas, but this one is so sweet. All of my Puppies for Christmas books are set in my imaginary town of Hallburg, Maryland. In last year's offering, Puppy Love and Christmas Cookies, the story opens as the reader learns that the heroine, Lesley Ackerman, has just been dumped by her longtime boyfriend, Tony Zanetti.

As you can imagine, Tony isn't the most popular character in the story. I love to redeem characters in series books. So in this year's book, I plan to redeem Tony and give him the love of his life. A little girl and a sweet puppy will help him.

If you haven't had a chance to read the Happiness in Hallburg series, I hope you'll do so in preparation for the upcoming book. You can find information by clicking on the link.

Do you like to read stories in which characters find their redemption?
