Release day: 12 Days at Silver Bells House
Today is the official release of 12 Days at Silver Bells House by Jennie Jones (ebook, Escape Publishing). Here’s the blurb:
Kate Singleton has twelve days to find herself. With Christmas Day and her thirtieth birthday approaching, the best thing a city-chic fashion designer who no longer has a raison d’etre can do is nullify herself in the country. With Chardonnay.
When trouble strikes, the country presents her with Jamie Knight – a gallant but uncommunicative He-Man who drives an excavator and rescues her, her shoes, and her case of Chardonnay from a boggy field.
The adventure should be over – nothing but a good story to tell to her friends in the city – but her saviour turns out to also be an unexpected roommate, the new owner of Silver Bells House, Kate’s holiday home.
Forced together and dragged into the community Christmas spirit of the town, Kate and Jamie flounder their way through mistletoe, kissing games, carolling choirs, and a bone-deep yearning for community and acceptance.
Can the enchanting Silver Bells House and the holidays bind them together? Or will love get lost on Highway B23 back to the city?
Jennie dropped by today to tell us a litre about this book:
I hadn’t expected to write this story. I had no idea it was sitting beneath the mistletoe until I needed to deliver a Christmas-style country story in my Swallow’s Fall series that could sit between The House on Burra Burra Lane (out now) and The House at the Bottom of the Hill (out 19 December in ebook and paperback). And holy moly (as Kate my heroine would say)! I wrote 12 Days at Silver Bells House and had a ball. This story seemed to fly from me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
