Snowbound Colorado Christmas & Book Giveaway

Set during a historical severe snowstorm in 1913, these stories appear in the Snowbound Colorado Christmas collection:

Fires of Love by Tamela Hancock Murray

Thalia Bloom looks forward to her party except for seeing heartbreaker Maximilian Newbolt. Sparks fly, and Maximilian is waylaid by an allergy to a strawberry tart and illness means he must linger. Aunt Dorcas is even unhappier than Maximilian, discouraging any newfound love between the couple. Has God used a strawberry tart to free this couple from bondage of fears and insecurities so they can find true happiness in love?

The Best Medicine by Lena Nelson Dooley

When Thomas Stanton shows up at the holiday party of Rose Fletcher’s best friend, his appearance reminds Rose of the infatuation she felt for him when he worked on her father’s ranch. Although her heart wants to continue those long ago feelings, her mind reminds her that he doesn’t share her faith in God. Thomas can’t understand why Rose seems so standoffish. Will it take God’s intervention to show these two people just what He has planned all along?

Almost Home by Susan Page Davis

Patricia Logan leaves Thalia’s party and heads for home at her uncle’s ranch. Her ride is sidelined by the blizzard. A chance meeting with Jared Booker, an old friend, prompts Patricia to beg for a lift. They set out on horseback and become snowbound in a shack for two days with a crotchety midwife and their past. Can they rekindle their old camaraderie and see it transform into lasting love?

Dressed in Scarlet by Darlene Franklin

Natalie Daire, a rich young heiress, has a car accident on the way home from a friend’s holiday party and finds herself snowed in with the other guests at the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver. Fabrizio Ricci, the mechanic who fixes her car, is also snowbound at the hotel. Can these two people from opposite ends of the social spectrum find true love?


When you aren’t writing or spending time with your family, what is your favorite activity?

Lena: I love to travel, read, spend time with friends, and visit historical places.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Darlene: I used to write on buses, at soccer practice, on my break at work—anytime I could find a spare minute. Now I’m fortunate to have a room in my apartment dedicated as a study.

Did you find it hard or easy to work within the series framework?

Susan: It was easy in some ways. Once we had our theme and our setting, it was a matter of researching the period and making sure our stories fit together, yet were unique.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Tamela: Because I was already a writer when we moved to our present home, we made sure the layout included a home office. There, I am surrounded by photos of my family and books I love.

Writing this book was a lot of fun, and I'm sure you all will enjoy it. Right now it's beautiful autumn where I live (Maine) and I'm trying not to think about blizzards. :) Thanks for stopping by, and thanks, Gayle.
