[Note from Frolic: We’re so excited to welcome author Sarah Morgan to the site today. She’s talking all things Holiday romance! Take it away, Sarah!]
I’ve written a holiday book every year since I was first published and that’s longer than I care to remember! It’s become part of my own festive tradition, and the season provides a perfect backdrop for the stories I love to write, focusing on the relationships between families and friends and, of course, romance. As well as writing Christmas novels, I love reading them. When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing more comforting than curling up with a good book that gives you all the holiday feels. Here’s a selection of my current favorites!
Wrapped Up in You by Jill Shalvis
One way to warm up on a cold day is to reach for a Jill Shalvis and the latest addition to her Heartbreaker Bay series is no exception. This novel is the story of two very broken people who no longer believe in love, but then the holiday season throws them together in what appears to be a complete accident. How do two people who see themselves as not quite lovable…fall in love? I always love her characters and reading her books is like hanging out with old friends.
Coming Home for Christmas by RaeAnne Thayne
The best holiday fiction often focuses on home and family, and for heartfelt emotional stories, there is no one better than RaeAnne Thayne. A story of forgiveness and second chances, Coming Home for Christmas delivers everything you want when you’re settling in for a cozy night in front of the fire.
Christmas in Winter Valley by Jodi Thomas
We’re back in Ransom Canyon with this story, which includes not one but three romances, cleverly intertwined. I loved the romance and the friendship, but the highlight for me was nine-year-old Tatum. Jodi Thomas knows how to draw the reader into her stories and this book is guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings and give you all the holiday feels.
Christmas in Silver Springs by Brenda Novak
Family, forgiveness and romance are key ingredients for a heartfelt holiday story, and all those elements are present in Brenda Novak’s latest. It’s the story of two people finding a way forward after a personal tragedy—the ultimate feel-good holiday romance from a truly gifted storyteller.
