My latest Superromance release, Christmas At The Cove, was my first attempt at a Christmas story and to say I was nervous about writing it, is an understatement! As much as I love Christmas, I do panic over gift buying, decorations, time to wrap and prepare what I hope will be a home people enjoy visiting over the holidays.
Of course, the panic often leads to a waste of time because everything works out well enough come Dec 25th :)
So what did I want to achieve with my first Christmas novel? Well, the most important aspects for me was children, family, community…the secondary aspects was a reunion and all the festive stuff like snow, the tree, gifts, good food and drink. Luckily, I have an ongoing series set in the fictional UK seaside town of Templeton Cove with Superromance and a Christmas book was just perfect timing for Templeton Cove.
It wasn't long before my hero and heroine pushed themselves forward and along with them came a Secret Baby which is another trope I haven't included in the series before. I had a ball! It's amazing how festive a writer can feel during the Spring/Summer, LOL! I hope I've managed to translate the feel of a traditional UK Christmas along with enough emotion to keep the reader laughing and cry in equal measure.
Scott Walker is a long time resident of the Cove who had a brief affair with visitor, Carrie Jameson - and now Carrie is back with a surprise for Scott…but you'll have to read the book to see how the surprise is received…Happy Reading!
More family for Christmas?
Scott Walker doesn't have time for a relationship. The sexy mechanic has career ambitions, not to mention a mother and three sisters to take care of. The last thing he needs is Carrie Jameson, the beauty he never forgot, arriving in Templeton Cove over the holidays with some unexpected news.
Scott still finds Carrie irresistible, and he's not one to shirk responsibility. Scott's issues with his own dad make the prospect of parenthood a minefield. But if he and Carrie can overcome their fears, this Christmas could bring them the best gift of all.
