I love being a Canadian working with a lot of American authors: I get to celebrate Thanksgiving twice! Although, interestingly, for us (I think) Thanksgiving is much more about harvest and celebrating the bounty of the end of the growing season. I realized this when one of the U.S. authors contributing to the Heartwarming Thanksgiving promotion below objected to the word “Harvest” in her Thanksgiving title. I was desperately trying to find a way to fit this warm, feel-good word into one of the thirteen stories, but I guess November is kind of late for harvest time, eh? I suspect Harvest and Thanksgiving aren’t as tightly woven together down south as they are up north.
*I’ll let you guess which story below was one I called “The Harvest Table,” but the author worked with us to change! You may have to wait until Nov. 26 to read all the stories first before you’ll understand… But today you can read Leigh Riker’s “Her Thanksgiving Soldier,” and catch up on “Snow Day Baby” and “Wedding at Turkey Run,” if you haven’t already enjoyed them. http://community.harlequin.com/showthread.php/6342-Special-Heartwarming-Community-Event-Extra-Fun-With-This-Week-s-Online-Reads
I hope a lot of readers are stopping by this blog and taking the opportunity to check out this special month of free stories and giveaways. I feel as if we’ve cornered the market on giving thanks this year! My #1 reason to be thankful: the fact that Heartwarming paperbacks will be available in select Walmart stores starting this January. Yes.
Until then, we’ve got November and a terrific line-up of seasonal books. Don’t miss out on Jennifer Snow’s Love, Lies & Mistletoe (book six of the Brookhollow stories), Patricia Bradley’s The Christmas Campaign, Muriel Jensen’s To Love and Protect (her second Manning Family Reunion) and our Christmas anthology, Winter Wedding Bells—featuring authors Karen Rock, Kristine Rolofson and another story from Jennifer Snow. Winter doesn’t seem so daunting, armed with roller-coaster emotional Heartwarming holiday romances….
…Or does it?
You’ll have to buy the books and turn the pages to find out!!!!
Enjoy our special countdown to Thanksgiving, and keep on reading.
