An Unforgettable Holiday




A Magical Christmas In Jerusalem
Australian project manager Kiara Lonsdale is career focussed and determined to provide and care for the grandmother who raised her. Taking time off work to vacation has never been high on her agenda, but this year she’s made an exception. She’s helping her gran fulfil a life-long dream by accompanying her on a Christmas to the Holy Land tour.

Jacques Lenoir and his extended family run tours in Israel and he’s committed to their business. Jacques feels responsible for his grandparents’ welfare since they risked their lives, and others’, as operatives in the French Resistance, during the War.

But over romantic dinners in the desert, camel rides, and mud baths at the Dead Sea, sparks fly between Kiara and Jacques. Will this only be a holiday romance or will a touch of Christmas magic make it last a lifetime?

A Magical Chanukah in New York

Lisa Sassoon has shunned the scandal of her loser-ex cheating on her by escaping to New York. Instead of sightseeing, she’s become a recluse focusing on helping the less fortunate at a homeless shelter.

Gabe Olivari, entrepreneur and savvy business New Yorker, can’t let go of the pain of losing his best friend. So caught up in his own grief and believing he doesn’t deserve to be happy, he compensates by pushing everyone close to him away.

But when Lisa and Gabe meet, there is an instant connection that forces them to question not only their behaviours but their aspirations.

Can a dash of Chanukah magic help Lisa and Gabe realise that sparkling dates and dreamy kisses can lead to more? Perhaps even a lifetime of happiness?

    1. I have to confess, you are correct. I often spend more time marketing than I do writing. But that's part of being an indie writer - you do everything yourself :) Thanks for dropping by :)

  11. Everything to do with marketing is annoying, isn't it, even if just because it takes up so much writing time.

    1. I agree! I'd much rather be writing but as a self published author, I'm responsible for marketing and promoting my own books and my brand. This is a full time job.

      The up side is that I market my own books, not someone else, and have the freedom to do what I think is best :)

  12. It's the perfect time of year for a good romance. Fireplace, mulled wine, comfy chair and a bit of love. Congratulations on your book, Joanne.

    1. Thanks Clem - appreciate that!

      But here in Australia, it's more like air-conditioner, glass of sparkling wine and a comfy chair out of the sun :) It's summer here and usually very hot on Christmas Day!

  18. DOWN WITH TECH! (Unless my hubby can step in to keep me from smashing the computer.) Such a cute cover, and I LOVE the concept. Books that take me elsewhere are the best!
