Holiday treats for your sweet tooth

 Holiday romances

Thanksgiving is behind us and we're coming up on that holiday sweet spot--early enough in the season we're still feeling warm and fuzzy, before we've been exhausted by holiday shopping and baking and what can seem like an endless parade of parties and family visits.

Or maybe that's just my introvert showing. 

At any rate, it's time for sweet holiday treats, classic movie marathons, and best of all, cozy holiday stories! It's no secret that I love writing holiday stories. My first book was a short in the Dreamspinner Press Advent Calendar collection in 2012 (Traditions from the Heart), which means I celebrated my five-year publishing anniversary on Dec. 1. Hard to believe I now have 20 books out with Dreamspinner! (And five of them are holiday stories!) And how fitting is it that book 20 was also a holiday short story for the Advent calendar? It was so awesome to have my 20th book come out on the 5th anniversary of my first release. *g*

What I'm reading


I've been working feverishly on Under a Blue Moon, the sequel to Camp H.O.W.L., and now that it's safely in the hands of my editor at Dreamspinner I can gorge on some holiday reads. 

I've already read (and LOVED) the holiday offerings from Caraway Carter and Hunter Frost. They're both feel-good reads that are a little outside the traditional holiday story. 

We'll be working on getting our Christmas decorations up in the Baker household this weekend, and I always make a batch of peppermint bark to sustain us. I bought the expensive stuff for years until I realized how easy it to make yourself. Though now we probably eat way too much of it through the holiday season. *g* Once you make this for friends I promise it will be what they ask you to bring to holiday parties forever after. It looks impressive and tastes great, and you don't have to tell them it's dead simple to make!
