About the Book
Merri’s Christmas Mission by Chautona Havig
Merri doesn’t want much from life–a job, healthy kids, a modest apartment, cheap fun… And a LAVISH Christmas. No, really. While other people save for vacations and cars, Merri saves every spare dime for her annual Christmas Extravaganza! But when she loses her job three months before Christmas, survival means dipping deeper and deeper into the Christmas fund! What’s a Yuletide fanatic to do? All Barney wanted was to win a pool table for The Mission, but watching a single mom’s dogged determination to win a great Christmas gift for her kids makes it hard to keep his eye on the needs of the mission instead of the shifting hopes of his heart.
Lead a Merry Dance by April Hayman
Trip Devereaux's time has run out. If he doesn't arrange for and execute a solid plan for a honeymoon, things are going to get ugly at home. Solution: a Caribbean Christmas cruise! But when he and Libby arrive, something is off. Why is everyone on board old enough to be his grandmother? And what happened to Lady Helen Beauchamp’s necklace? In a race to solve the case before they reach port and the thief can get away, Trip and Libby find themselves embroiled in a plot thicker and more sinister than they originally anticipated.
A Sidelined Christmas by Toni Shiloh
Sidelined with a career-ending injury, wide receiver Jahleel Walker is forced to return to his hometown of Peachwood Bay, Georgia to heal. Nothing shocks him more than running into his high-school sweetheart, Lucille “Bebe” Gordon. Bebe Gordon returned to Peachwood Bay three years ago with a divorce certificate and her daughter, Hope. When Jahleel returns, all the memories of the past come rushing back. She can’t decide if he’s changed or if her heart is holding onto past hurts. Will Jahleel and Bebe take a chance on love or let life sideline them at Christmas?
Hope for the Holidays by Cathe Swanson
Newly arrived from her home in the Congo and armed with a brand-new degree in nonprofit management, Carrie Strough is eager to organize and improve the Unity Plenkiss Community Center. Unfortunately, no one wants to be organized, and only Micah Neresen, the charming and handsome pastor of the local church, is interested in her plans. Or is he just interested in her? With a cast of lively and eccentric characters including a homeless vet with PTSD, a con man, an elderly couple with an over-the-top Christmas display, a feisty committeewoman with a past of her own, and a police investigation, Micah and Carrie wonder if there is any hope for the holidays this year!

They enjoy spending time with their family and being outdoors, kayaking, hiking, birdwatching and fishing, but summer is short in Wisconsin, so it’s important to have indoor hobbies, too.

Her family is growing steadily; she and her husband had three sons, and those boys all grew up and married delightful women and started producing grandchildren: four boys and three girls so far!
The long Wisconsin winters are perfect for writing and reading books! Cathe enjoys writing stories with eccentric characters of all ages. Her books will make you laugh and make you cry – and then make you laugh again.
