Jingle, jangle, jingle! The holiday season is upon us and I’m tickled to be able to share the cover and blurb for my upcoming Christmas release, The Christmas Pundit, Laurel Holidays #2. This enemies to lovers, small town Christmas tale was so much fun to write. It has a little bit of everything you’ll need to make your season bright.

The Christmas Pundit
Will two complete opposites learn to cross party lines to benefit their beloved hometown and save Christmas?
Evan Griffiths is enjoying his tenure as the mayor of Cedarburg, Pennsylvania. While it may barely be a blip on the state map, it’s where he grew up and he’s thrilled to be at the helm of the tiny rural community. With the recent election in the past, Evan can focus on his agenda to bring Cedarburg out of the fifties. Being the first gay mayor in the town’s history is a good start but there’s plenty more to do. His first big job as the new mayor is expanding the yearly Christmas Carnival to lure tourists to his fiscally challenged birthplace. Things seem to be moving along at a good pace then a ghost from Christmases past arrives on the morning bus.
As soon as Gideon Pierce returns to Cedarburg he picks right up where he left off back in elementary school tormenting Evan at every turn. Only this time instead of shoving Evan down on the playground, Gideon is bedeviling him with snippy editorials in the local paper and on cable TV. Gideon is no longer the gangly kid he used to be and Even is finding it harder and harder to keep his mind on witty replies to Gideon’s cutting viewpoints when his gaze keeps touching on Gideon’s mouth and the appreciative fire in his brilliant holly green eyes.
