Santa Claus is coming to town, and so are the Tucker sisters. 
Never mind a pony. The Tucker girls have inherited their father’s horse farm for Christmas. Make that . . . a run-down horse farm. It needs some serious TLC in order to make it sell-ready. Joanna knows that by recruiting her sisters and one handsome ranch hand they can fix up the place and even celebrate one last Christmas while they’re at it. However, to Isabella, returning to their home in Kentucky bluegrass country for Christmas seems like an impossible hurdle. Can her Chicago boyfriend make life merry and bright again?

One thing’s for sure—nothing is peace on earth for Sophia as a new beau brings up old wounds. And when the fate of the horse farm is put in jeopardy because Amy accidentally fraternizes with the enemy, tensions rise. But it’s not like the land developer stole Christmas . . . just her heart.

 

            Can the Tucker sisters have themselves a merry little Christmas?


Author Spotlight 2: Lynette Sowell


Lynette Sowell is the author of more than 20 titles for Barbour Publishing, Heartsong Presents, and Abingdon Press. Her work has finaled and won ACFW’s Carol Award and has appeared on the ECPA best seller list. When Lynette’s not writing, she works as editor of her city’s newspaper. Her weekly column, My Front Porch, has won awards from the South Texas Press Association and the Texas Gulf Coast Press Association. Lynette was born in Massachusetts, raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, but makes her home on the doorstep of the Texas hill country with her husband, their Texas heeler, and a duo of cats. She loves traveling, reading, cooking, watching movies, and is always up for a Texas road trip.

How has being a Texan influenced your writing?
I’m one of those who wasn’t born in Texas, but I’m a “got here as soon as I could” Texan. Many think of Texas as a cowboy boots, ranches, pickup trucks and barbecue state—which it is, but I’ve come to know my adopted home state as an extremely diverse place which people from all over the world call home, and they bring their own unique flavors. I like to think of my writing in the same way, as far as characters and settings go. For me, that’s the most fun part of writing, going somewhere in a story, and I hope my readers feel like they’re transported too.
Just as your books inspire authors, what authors have inspired you to write?
I love the work of C.S. Lewis, in particular, but I haven’t really written any fantasy or allegory. Before I started writing fiction in earnest not quite twenty years ago, I enjoyed reading the romantic suspense of author Terri Blackstock. My fellow author-friends also inspire me. We talk about ideas we’re currently working on, idea we have for future books, and those fun what-ifs that spark our imaginations. Writing can be very solitary and I get inspiration from fellow authors when the going gets tough.
What kind(s) of writing do you do?
I write primarily contemporary and historical romance, and cozy mysteries. For me, it’s both setting and characters that make me want to turn a story premise into a book. I’ll sometimes start with setting, and wait for a character to walk onto my mind’s “stage” and see what happens from there.
What literary character is most like you?
When I was a kid, that character was Jo March of Little Women. The way she would lose herself in a story and find the drama in ordinary things, well, I really identified with that. I’d have to say the same is partly true today, now that I’m a novelist and I also work for a newspaper. It is very easy to get busy writing and burn supper (sorry, honey!). I also happened, like Jo, to marry a man with children that I raised as my own.
What cultural value do you see in writing/reading/storytelling?
Writing, reading, and storytelling are all things that can be done for the sake of “fun,” but I see so many fictional things that have influenced our culture. Books and stories can reflect what we’re experiencing in real life. Looking back to the stories of the 1960s, for example, we can see the cultural fingerprints in many of the writings of that day. Sometimes I wonder what readers fifty years from now will see when they look back at today’s books. As a fun aside, my husband and I are Star Trek fans. Those who know Star Trek can easily see many of the imagined technologies from fifty years ago that are realities for us today—visual communications via smart phones, the use of tablets, being able to talk to our computers and not use a keyboard.
