Eve Gaddy: A Whiskey River Christmas

Three of my friends and I were chatting about writing a connected series and set it in Whiskey River, Texas. We talked about how fun it would be to write a riff on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. But our series isn’t exactly like that. Our ghost is a matchmaking ghost. 

Our matchmaking ghost first appears in Julia Justiss’s A Texas Christmas Past, set in 1918 and 1919. A Texas Christmas Reunion by Eve Gaddy, A Texas Christmas Homecoming by Nancy Robards Thompson, and Once Upon a Texas Christmas by Katherine Garbera are set concurrently, so you’ll be able to read them in any order you want. Come experience the Christmas Ball at the Harwood Inn, Christmas on the Square, Floats, Boats and Whiskey Barrels, and lots of other Christmas fun and romance. And last but not least, a ghost who is determined to help bring people together with the magic of Christmas.

Years ago, Harlan Sullivan broke Savannah Taylor’s heart. Now he’s back in Whiskey River as the new owner of the local construction company--and Savannah’s new boss. Giving up Savannah was the hardest thing Harlan ever had to do, but it’s way past time to explain why he did.  Besides, after fourteen years, they have both moved on.  Or so he thinks—until their unexpected meeting at Felicity’s Christmas Ball shocks him into realizing his buried feelings—and secret passion—are very much alive. 

As long as she keeps a tight grip over her emotions, Savannah is confident she can weather having her old flame become her new boss.  She’s even willing to indulge the desire that time seems to have intensified.  But there’s no way she will let Harlan anywhere close to her heart.  

Harlan soon realizes he wants more from the sexy, sultry Savannah than a temporary affair and sets out to convince her that this time, their love will last forever. But it will take a bit of Christmas magic from the Harwood Inn ghost to bring this reluctant banker’s daughter and determined Barrels Bad Boy to their happily-ever-after.
