Kimberly Rose Johnsonabout this book: Widow, Keira Noble, was once married to the man of her dreams and is content living out his dream of running a candy shop and raising their son. Life is good, except for one thing--she is terrified of driving in the snow and she lives in the mountains!
Veterinarian, Pete Harding is new in town and happens upon Keira's candy shop. He is immediately attracted to her and asks her out, but when he finds out she has a son he retreats. He's been there and done that and got burned in the process. But then Pete is enlisted to help find Keira's son a puppy for Christmas.
Can two hurting hearts overcome the fear and find true love, or will they allow fear to control them and miss out on a future together?
The Christmas Promise is the first book in my Leavenworth, Washington series. Leavenworth is a quaint Bavarian village nestled in the Washington Cascades. Leavenworth knows how to do Christmas and is famous for it's Festival of Lights. Every December thousands of people flock to the small village to take part in the light festival.
I came up with the idea for this book when my agent asked me to write a contemporary romance. I had tried for years to get published in the romantic suspense genre, but had little success. I thought about the most romantic place I'd ever been and Leavenworth came to mind. My husband had taken me there when we were dating in college. Once I determined that the book would take place there, I took the train to Leavenworth and soaked up the feel of the place. I walked around town, interviewed long time residents, who happened to be my husband's relatives, and brainstormed via email with my critique group. Before I left town two days later I had the story mapped out in my mind.
