The Christmas Oaks is the first book in my new Laurel Holidays series, which will be standalone romances set in the Twin Tiers region of Pennsylvania and New York state. I’m extremely fortunate to live in this area of the country and winter in the mountains is a beautiful and romantic time that I cannot wait to share!
Book one is The Christmas Oaks and will release on December 4th with no preorders. Thanks to Quinn Ward for the beautiful cover art.
The Christmas Oaks
Can the magic of Christmas, and the soft voice of a man who has seen too much, show Bryan a future where anything is possible?
Bryan Graham is shocked to find he’s inherited a hunting cabin in north-central Pennsylvania. From his grandfather of all people; a stubborn man who went out of his way to make Bryan’s childhood miserable. He’d vowed never to go back to the small, rural community of Kutter’s Summit, not that he didn’t have fond memories of the place. It’s just that he’d rather be celebrating a quiet Christmas back in Nashville with his cat and his contracts.
A couple of weeks of hunting, cleaning, and handyman work, and he can hopefully put the place up for sale and move on with his life. He never expected to find his childhood friend Parson Greer living in the cabin. Parson is no longer a boy, but a handsome, wary man consumed by the demons of a faraway desert war. When a rekindled friendship shifts into something deeper, Bryan finds himself lost in emotions that a workaholic like him has never made time to experience before.
