Once Upon a Thanksgiving



Recruited to Snowdrop Valley to start the first public school, Prunella Peabody is abhorred to see it is nothing more than a dilapidated 1800’s barn-turned schoolhouse. Determined to outshine her acclaimed big-city twin sister, she has every intention of transforming it into a reputable venue by following each legal step in the book. When the town council assigns her a swaggery new principal with a background in children’s literature to restore the school, she learns they are expected to share the same free housing despite his  drooly dog, sloppy ways and ridiculous ideas. Will she discover there is more to life than policy?

Short and Sweet Holiday

Reads Novelette Series

Alone for the Holidays



Snow is falling hard near the festive town of Woodstock, Vermont, with its scrumptious bakeries, brightly lit storefronts, and twelve-foot-tall Main Street Christmas tree. Romance is in the air for everybody except Clara Neverov, recently divorced, bitter, and alone for the holidays. Her situation goes from bad to worse when she accidentally invites a man she's never met from an online book group to spend Christmas with her after hearing that his wife passed away. The problem is that for the nine months of their writing letters, she led him to believe she is a six-foot-tall blonde aerobics queen who owned a bookstore, instead of the truth that she's a dark-haired, dark-eyed, overweight Russian famous author and anti-social hermit.

With the property up for sale and to test the waters, she rents the mountain retreat for two weeks and enrolls a dozen paying ladies for an all-women's health and wellness retreat. The problem is that when she arrives at the property with her guests, so do twelve sweaty, messy, noisy men in the company of a loud-mouthed martial arts instructor hosting his own two-week camp due to an accidental double booking. The peaceful yoga retreat quickly turns into a disaster that includes sharing cabins with strange men and fighting for hill rights.
