About the Book:

Writing happy endings is easy. Living one is the hard part.
Georgia Cole—known in Hollywood as the “Holiday Goddess”—has made a name for herself writing heartwarming screenplays chock-full of Christmas clichés, but she has yet to experience the true magic of the season. So, when her eccentric grandmother volunteers her to direct a pageant at Georgia’s hometown community theater, she is less than thrilled. To make matters worse, she’ll be working alongside Weston James, her childhood crush and the one man she has tried desperately to forget.
Now, facing memories of a lonely childhood and the humiliation of her last onstage performance, seven years earlier, Georgia is on the verge of a complete mistletoe meltdown. As Weston attempts to thaw the frozen walls around her heart, Georgia endeavors to let go of her fears and give love a second chance. If she does, will she finally believe that Christmas can be more than a cliché?

My Thoughts:

I cannot believe I did it.  We're in early October, and I just devoured my first Christmas holiday story.  But I had to have something to get my mind off of everything swirling in the atmosphere we're living in right now.  When I discovered I'd made the list for Nicole's upcoming novel, I realized I've never read any of her work.

So I scrolled through the titles I had stored on my Kindle and found "A Cliche Christmas".  A holiday story was bound to lighten my mood, right?  I settled under my blankets and turned to page one.

Two and a half hours later I flipped the final page, and realized my light bedtime reading had become a marathon session, it was very late, and I was very happy.  Nicole's novel was a fine feast for my mind and healing balm for my weary soul.

I laughed.  I cried.  I snickered.  And then I cried some more.  And I was so very grateful that I had "A Cliche Christmas" loaded on my Kindle for that moment in time, and that God blessed Nicole with such a superb talent for storytelling.
Yes, it's October, but I still believe now is the perfect time to get a copy of "A Cliche Christmas" and to settle in for a long winter's the middle of Fall!  I'm giving this one "Oh, The Feels!" and I'm eager to share my thoughts with you on Nicole's upcoming release!  But, until then...

Mark Your Place,
