ABOUT THE BOOK: MISTLETOE MAGIC AND OTHER HOLIDAY TALES is about the wonder and excitement of the holiday season, as shown through the experiences of the characters in these eight stories.
Lucinda and the Christmas List – A young woman needs a dose of elf-magic to regain her Christmas spirit. (Originally published in Peripheral Visions and Other Stories)
The Snow Globe – An elderly woman, through a gift from her late husband, finds a way to fill her empty house and life. (Originally published in The Saturday Evening Post)
The Little Red Sock – Despite past disappointments, a little boy still believes that Santa will come.
Twelve Days Before Christmas – A harried mother of three learns that, despite a series of mishaps, the season is always better when shared with family. (Originally published in Bethlehem Writers Roundtable)
Christmas Present – A middle-aged woman is reminded that the best Christmas presents are those we give to others.
Charley Catches the Christmas Spirit – A seemingly straightforward case of credit card fraud leads to a surprising and heartwarming conclusion for the thief, the victim, and the team from Adams Investigation Service.
Holiday Reunion – A young woman realizes that even unexpected (and somewhat irritating) houseguests can make the holiday special.
Mistletoe Magic – The characters in these four interlinked vignettes find that a simple mistletoe decoration can lead to an outcome that is more than what was expected or hoped for.
