A Lake House Holiday: A Small-Town Christmas Romance
by Megan Squires

FIRST CHAPTER:
1
Ace barked three times every morning, right at the stroke of seven. He was the best alarm clock Jolene Carter ever had, but he didn’t appreciate it when she’d bop him squarely on his head in an attempt to hit the snooze, like she did that morning. He let his distaste be known with a low rumble in his throat. It would’ve intimidated a stranger, but little about the one hundred pound ball of fluff could rattle Jolene.

The dog had wandered his way out of the dense Merrylark forest line and onto Jolene’s property years ago, and after posting on local websites and venturing a trip down the hill to the humane society, she concluded that the mutt had been abandoned on purpose. That revelation broke Jolene’s heart, yet at the same time healed it. Ace could become rightfully hers.

TEASER: 
“Wow,” Jolene muttered before she could stop herself. And then she did the one thing she knew to do in a situation like this. “Luke, would you like to come in for a cup of coffee? I was just about to put a pot on.”

  1. I love the cozy sound of this one! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. Sounds good especially now.

  3. This looks so good and perfect for this time of year. Love the cover.

  4. Such a lovely cover; I think I would like this for a December read. We are getting 8-10″ of snow tonight – can’t wait since we don’t need to go anywhere tomorrow.

  5. Good that there’s a dog in a starring role 🙂

  6. Oh that first paragraph gets me. My grandparents lived in the country and they were always having dogs wander up that people had dumped and some of them were just the absolute best dogs.

    • I love dogs! I’d end up keeping all the dogs who showed up at my door. My son just adopted a cat that he found sitting on his front porch for two days straight. He has never been a cat person although we had them all the years they were growing up. He has always had dogs. He had 3 for years but when the last one went to the Rainbow Bridge he went to the shelter and picked another one. I was so proud of him when he took the cat in. He said he couldn’t leave it outside in the cold and with no food. I’m glad none of the neighbors claimed it!

  7. Vicki,
    This book sounds especially good right now. I love the cozy cover.

  8. I like the cover of the book, it invites you to pick it. Good story line too.

    Merry Christmas my friend!!

  9. Merry Christmas Tina!
