A Kentucky Christmas and a holiday piano on #KentuckyDay

A small fictional town in my Christmas Piano Tree story

 

I remember Christmas in Kentucky when I was a kid.

We lived in a lot of states, but I loved Kentucky with its beautiful woods and small towns like Versailles and Corbin.

And Kissing Creek.

Oh, but wait . . .

Kissing Creek exists only in “The Christmas Piano Tree.”

It’s my manuscript on submission to Hallmark Publishing . . .

It’s a homespun small town where a pretty young war widow lives with her little girl. When an old Army buddy of her late husband shows up looking for a hot meal, she’s intrigued . . . he’s homeless, but he has a secret that will change her life!

Keep you posted . . .

PS — actually I have two Christmas books on submission to Hallmark!

Sweet Holiday Romance “The Christmas Piano Tree” on #SweetestDay #FREE

Sweetest Day started out as a sweet day in 1916 literally – Candy Day.

I’d like to celebrate  this day with another sweet.

Sweet Romance.

My holiday romance THE CHRISTMAS PIANO TREE is a ***FREE sweet treat today Saturday, October 21, 2017.

It’s the story of a wounded warrior and a soldier’s widow:

Kristen Delaney is a cookie baker and works in a girl’s school in Kissing Creek, Kentucky. She’s been feeding homeless vets with leftover food as a way of keeping her husband’s memory alive (he was killed in Afghanistan)–this is a very difficult Christmas Eve for her and her little girl Rachel…until this soldier shows up!!

Here’s a short scene where we first meet him. Kristen gets a funny feeling when she sees a tall man walking toward her…

“She pulled her steering wheel hard to the right to avoid colliding with the tall man bundled up in a black field jacket and khaki pants, a duffel bag strapped on his back, his broad shoulders dusted with falling snow.

“She stuck her head out of the window to give him a piece of her mind and then stopped.

“Something about him made her stare at him. He had that swagger she knew so well. Military. Seeing him touched a nerve. Another homeless vet. Kristen shook her head, understanding. He was the third one this week looking for a hot meal.

“Not surprising on Christmas Eve.”

My Military Heroes: from the Civil War to Afghanistan for Veterans Day

Military heroes…we women love them.

And let’s not forget our female veterans.

So on this Veterans Day, I salute the heroes in my stories who serve our country:

A female soldier, a Southern belle and spy, a mother fighting the Nazis, a World War 2 soldier in Italy, and a returning vet honoring his best buddy’s last wish.

I haven’t made a video yet for “The Christmas Piano Tree,” so here’s the story:

What’s Christmas without a tree?

Kristen Delaney can’t afford a Christmas tree this year, but she doesn’t want to disappoint her little girl Rachel. The six-year old already lost her daddy in Afghanistan. To cheer her up, Kristen hires a homeless vet to play Santa at the private school where she works. Little does she know it was no accident the hunky Santa showed up in Kissing Creek just in time for Christmas Eve.

Sgt. Jared Milano promised Scott Delaney he’d take care of his wife and little girl. He also shared with him a secret that would change Kristen’s life, a secret about her Aunt Gertrude and an old piano, but the IED blast blew away part of his memory.

Jared fights his growing desire for Kristen as he struggles to regain his past and overcome the PTSD haunting him. Kristen is lonely and not ready to fall in love again, but she can’t take her eyes off him. Doesn’t want to. When he’s accused of a crime, she refuses to believe he’s guilty and invites the handsome soldier to spend Christmas Eve with them.

When a sudden snowstorm turns deadly and Rachel goes missing, Jared must use all his skills to find her and prove to Kristen he’s guilty only of falling in love with her.

“The Christmas Piano Tree” is the story of a pretty young war widow who re-discovers the magic of the holiday season with the help of a homeless vet and an old piano.
