In “A Winter Wonderland” by Fern Michaels, Angelica Shepard leaves New York for Christmas in Colorado to relax and unwind – but an out-of-control snowboarder almost has her laid to rest. When she wakes up in the hospital, all she remembers is the handsome angel who saved her. “The Joy of Christmas” by Holly Chamberlin introduces Iris Karr, who thinks “not all happiness is good for you,” when she decides to move away instead of marrying her sweetheart Ben. Even years later, living with that decision isn’t easy – until a familiar face comes to call her home for the holidays. In Leslie Meier’s “The Christmas Thief,” Elizabeth Stone is ready for a white Christmas in Tinker’s Cove, Maine – until a fancy Yule ball at the Florida hotel where she works dumps snow on her plans. The sponsor’s jewels have gone missing and the police are asking about her ties to a cute mystery guest. Good thing Elizabeth’s mother, Lucy Stone, flew down to surprise her. ‘Tis the season for a little investigating. In “The Christmas Collector” by Kristina McMorris, estate liquidator Jenna Matthews isn’t one for Christmas nostalgia. But when one grandmother’s keepsakes suggest a secret life, unwrapping the mystery leads Jenna – and her client’s handsome grandson – to the true heart of the holiday spirit.
