Bookshelf Friday x 2! - One Enchanted Christmas by Melissa Tagg & The Proposal by Becky Wade

I love this time of year! Snuggling up on the couch, drinking cocoa, and reading a good book by the lights of your Christmas tree? Yep. A perfect afternoon or evening, so I'm super excited to bring you Melissa Tagg's new novella One Enchanted Christmas and Becky Wade's The Proposal. Here's their short blurbs, and we'll chat on the other side!

Last December, mystery author Maren Grant had the most perfect night of her life. On a glimmering winter evening, she got to watch the photo shoot for her very first book and ended up on a magical date with the cover model himself—Colin Renwycke. 

Fast forward one year. This December, with a looming deadline, restless spirit and her creative spark long since gone, Maren is desperate to get unstuck. And she can’t get Colin out of her head…or his year-old open invitation to spend a couple weeks writing at his family’s farm. 

Drew Renwycke never planned to come home and take over the Renwycke family farm. But he’s spent too many years watching his siblings unravel, including his brother, Colin, after one terrible family mistake. If moving to Maple Valley, Iowa, renovating an old farmhouse and switching careers is what it takes to put the Renwycke family back together, he’ll do it. 

But his simple plan upends when a scrappy author lands on his doorstep. And she just might be the key to coaxing his brother home. But what if he wants her all to himself? Drew will have to choose between his Christmas wish and the enchantment of a holiday romance that just might be the happy ending they all long for. 

Single mom Amber Richardson spends every holiday season working to give her young son the best Christmas possible and striving to ignore the empty chairs around her table, chairs she wishes her mother and father and extended family occupied.  

She'd hoped that this holiday would be fuller and happier than the rest. Her handsome firefighter boyfriend, Will McGrath, has brought immeasurable joy and love into her life. Up until recently, they'd even been talking about a future that included wedding bells. Lately, though, the wedding talk has been nonexistent and Amber can’t help but worry that Will's starting to have second thoughts....  

Until a fire station surprise brings very good tidings.

Both are such great reads that can fill one sitting. They're like the Hallmark Christmas Movies of books, and because these are two of my favorite authors and such great short reads--and it's Christmas!--I'm going to be giving a few copies away. These are e-reads only, so you'll need a Kindle/Kindle app (or Nook for One Enchanted Christmas), but as long as you have them, you're eligible!

So Merry Christmas, friends! Go ahead and leave a comment here or on this post on my Facebook page. I'm giving two lucky people a copy of both! I'll announce the winners on next Friday's Bookshelf.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Susan. Please add my name to the drawing. I've loved Melissa's other books, and I have my first Becky Wade book in my TBR pile.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Just thought I would pop in and check out what was happening here. You are such a cheerleader for others. So sweet, and I 100% agree with your second sentence. That's where you will pretty much find me all of the tree.
