After years of being away during the holidays, all Adair Hutton wants is to spend Christmas with her family. As a travel nurse, she’s been all over the country and enjoyed every minute of it, but it’s time to come home for good.
It becomes more difficult than Adair has anticipated when she has to rely on a handsome stranger, a taxi, Greyhound bus, an Uber, and an airplane to make the journey home. Because the road home isn’t always as easy as planned.
Easton is a cartoon artist and can work from anywhere and isn’t in any hurry to reach Seattle. There’s no family waiting for him. When a beautiful stranger needs his assistance to get home for the holidays, he jumps in with both feet and maybe his heart too.

Thary Murray has been riding across country to outrun the tragic memories of his past. He’s taken a short-term job at the bakery and makes the best pastries anyone’s ever eaten.
When Emilyn’s sister becomes ill she and Thary must work together to finish a gingerbread village promised as a fundraiser for a children’s home.
As they begin to open up to each other about the pains of their pasts, will this draw them into something deeper for the holiday season? Possibly love?
Choosing Heart or Home by Chris Karlsen –https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JDW2BK1
The widowed Victoria reigns over an empire the “sun never sets on,” and London is bright with holiday decorations. Detective Rudyard Bloodstone is Holborn Station’s lead investigator. With his career moving along well, Rudyard’s year got even better after meeting London music hall star, Honeysuckle Flowers.
As he and his lady begin to celebrate the holidays, Rudyard grows homesick for Wales and for his family there. He makes plans to see his parents and thinks it is the perfect time to introduce Honeysuckle to them.
His joyful vision of how the visit will go fades, when to his unhappy surprise, his mother paints Honeysuckle with a trollop’s brush. His mother is firm: he is loved and missed and most welcome to the family home but not his lady. Loyalty to his parents is challenged by his love for Honeysuckle. He must choose between them, and to choose one means the risk of losing the other.

Alice Andrews has plans for her daughter. She wants her in White Cove, and not just for Christmas. All family traditions are set to impress her daughter and she’s found the perfect gift. A new doctor in town. Alice promised to stop meddling but maybe just one more time will keep her daughter home. The hospital Christmas party will allow for an introduction.

Small Town Christmas by Tammy Tate -
After ten years, Brandy blames herself when she gets blind-sided by her husband and he brings their marriage to a screeching halt. Mentally, she’s crushed and confused as to what went wrong and the breakup traps her in a dark, cynical place that she can’t seem to pull herself out of. Losing her job at a time when her self-esteem is already at an all-time low only adds to her depression.
In Brandy’s eyes, she’s a train wreck searching for a place to derail. Two weeks before Christmas her mother suggests that she move home. Taking her mother’s advice, Brandy leaves Dallas, Texas for Wauchula, Florida.
Once Brandy gets to Florida, she’s greeted by Connie, a high school acquaintance that she hasn’t seen in over ten years. Brandy learns Connie’s brother is flying in from Chicago for the holidays and has just underwent a nasty divorce of his own. Connie’s determined, with Brandy’s help, they can cheer him up. Brandy’s not convinced.
To Brandy’s surprise, Shaun is no longer the tall, geeky kid she remembers from high school with black rimmed glasses, taped on the sides. He’s tall all right, and sexy as hell, wears contacts and sports an eight pack instead of six.
One day at the zoo changes their life forever.
