So we’ve almost finished the first week of 2017. I still haven’t been to the gym yet, but I am definitely feeling that new year’s resolution push to at least think about it!
This holiday I was lucky enough to spend a good stretch of time with my family. What wasn’t so special was that I had the flu for most of it. Still, though, being at my parents’ house, watching lots of movies, made it feel like a real break. It was also the perfect time to catch up on my reading—a few books, of course, but I also made sure to take a look at some uplifting news stories from the past year.
There was also this local news story that stuck in my mind from a couple of months ago that I had to revisit. A Toronto man was visibly upset on the subway because he was late for a job interview. A few fellow riders all chipped in in various ways to help him out. Giving him advice, an Advil for his headache and a sip of juice to take it, something to tie back his hair. When he reached his stop, everyone wished him well as he headed off. So far I haven’t found a follow-up, but I’m hoping he got the job. I was so moved by this story that I tweeted it out with a request that someone write this hero for me! After all, one of my favourite things about Harlequin Heartwarming, and Harlequin Superromance, is that while our heroes and heroines often find themselves in larger than life situations, they themselves always feel real and relatable.
Speaking of, there are some dreamy guys in our January 2017 Harlequin Heartwarming books. Happy release month to Tara Taylor Quinn, Sophia Sasson, Patricia Johns and Lee McKenzie!
