An After-Thanksgiving Suggestion - AUTUMN LOVE Novella Collection - One Giveaway Copy of One of Lena Nelson Dooley's Back List Books

Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? I'm glad if you did.

Are you a Black Friday shopper? You're probably tired if you are.

Here's a wonderful way to relax by enjoying a collection of Thanksgiving novellas.

The subtitle of this collection tells it all: Five Novellas of Finding Love in the Heart of Thanksgiving. Brought to you by some of the authors of Warm Mulled Kisses and April Fool's Love, here are blurbs of the stories:

Lena Nelson Dooley
DIY THANKSGIVINg LOVE - A misunderstanding brought Austin Hodges and Valerie Bradford together. The same misunderstanding eventually pushed them apart. Can a church youth campout help them to see each other through the eyes of truth?

Lisa Crane
THANK HEAVEN FOR LITTLE GIRLS - Charley Jane Roberts is a tomboy through and through. Jake Waters is a bit of a ladies man. They’re also best friends, and Jake is Charley’s boss. Unfortunately, Charley is also in love with Jake. He, however, sees her still as the tag-along little sister of his friend and one of the guys. One minor accident at work changes everything. But will the two of them figure everything out, in spite of meddling friends and misunderstandings?

Anne Greene
RECIPE FOR A HUSBAND - Maine Nessie McDonald, daughter of a recently deceased lighthouse keeper seeks a husband by Thanksgiving to share the responsibility of warning sailors off the rugged Maine coast. She advertises for a husband and cooks gourmet dinners for each would-be husband’s interview. Kyle Cameron, the injured seaman she rescues from the sea, won’t do because he must return to Australia and his father’s shipping business. Yet Kyle, lying on a cot in the kitchen with a broken leg, points out each aspiring husband’s unsuitability by reading aloud from Nessie’s heirloom cookbook’s spiritual advice. When Kyle must return home, Nessie realizes too late she’s fallen in love with the spiritual Australian. But Kyle surprises her by cooking up a recipe of his own.

Kathy Wall
NEVER AGAIN - Wounded by a woman’s dishonesty, Tanner Phillips vows never to trust women ever again. When he meets Rusti Moore, he recognizes a person in emotional pain carrying a heavy burden.

Her open honesty impresses him. Can he overcome his personal injuries to help her heal? Does he have the insight to support her without damaging her? Will helping her destroy him?

Marilyn Eudaly
TURKEY TROT - Radio personality Trudy Moore fears Thanksgiving will mark the end of her relationship with the “Big Boss of the Hot Sauce,” Gunnar Stone.

Gunnar pushes for them to spend Thanksgiving with his family in Connecticut. Trudy’s parents invite them to Arkansas. She may have to work the Turkey Trot Marathon in Dallas, Texas. Gunnar develops two very different plans to solve their holiday dilemma. One involves trotting around the country. The other he keeps secret from the woman he hopes to make his wife.

The miles and the rungs on the corporate ladder challenge their love as they do a Turkey Trot to find happy forever after.

And this group of authors will be bringing another novella collection in 2017.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I didn't have to cook for a change. As for Black Friday, I stay away. Time spent with family and friends means more to me than something bought in a store.

Fun giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win one of your books.
I had an awesome thanksgiving! First Thanksgiving as a married woman. :D I am so blessed. Got to see some of my family, I have a new nephew as of the Monday before Thanksgiving, another gift from God to be thankful for. :) Can't wait till Christmas when I will get to see nearly all of my sisters and their families! Not usually a black friday shopper, but we did have some errands to run, since the weekend is about the only time Eli is free to gp shopping, so we did take advantage of a few deals. Including a 4 quart Hamilton Beach crockpot, which we got for $9.99. God bless. Merry Christmas! I am also thankful fir great Christian authors, like yourself who give us readers something good and clean to read. Love you.

It's so good to see so many regular friends of my blog on here. Welcome. I love hearing from all of you.

Remember my giveaway is a copy of one of my back list books (books that came out a while before this one. Two novella collections are included in that list.

I really don't like to go shopping during the holiday season. But today I had to go to Best Buy, because the alarm clock radio I bought in February stopped working today. Standing in line isn't fun for me. I do like to shop small businesses.

I just had to buy a new alarm clock, too. The change in seasons must be hard on them!
