The Perfect Love Song

Patti Callahan Henry


Available in Hardcover, e-book, audiobook, and audio CD



Just in time for Christmas, escape with a perfect love song, a perfect love story, and a perfect dose of holiday magic.


"Patti Callahan Henry is quickly becoming one of my favorites." —Debbie Macomber, New York Times bestselling author


Can one song change the course of a life?


Brothers Jimmy and Jack Sullivan live a nomadic life doing what they love: touring with their band, The Unknown Souls. But Jack’s recent engagement to Kara has everyone looking forward to a Christmas destination wedding in Ireland.


Unlike his brother, Jimmy never expected to fall in love. But he feels a sense of peace and happiness whenever he’s around Kara’s best friend, Charlotte—which has him wondering what he’s missing. Over Thanksgiving, Jimmy and Charlotte write a song while sitting together on the back porch. When the band sings it at a Christmas concert the next night, Jimmy insists it’s the perfect love song—but a manager for another famous duo is adamant that it’s the perfect Christmas song. Before Jimmy knows what’s happening, he’s on tour with the hottest country band around and suddenly everyone knows his name.


But fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Jimmy finds himself far away from those he loves—especially Charlotte. Only a Christmas miracle—or two—will be able to lead Jimmy back to Ireland, to his brother, and to love.



“Her characters are so real, you feel as if you’ve known them a very long time.” —Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed


Letter from Patti


Can one song save a life?


This Christmas story has been close to my heart for over a decade! Last year, I picked it up again and like all stories we delve into a decade later, it was a different tale to me. I wanted to expand, deepen and add to it. So that is what I’ve done!


Now the novella is an expanded edition with bonus content and new scenes. It was a great thrill to enter back into the lives of Jimmy and Jack, and their music. It was a joy to again discover Kara and Charlotte, and to immerse myself in the romance and mystery of the Claddagh Myth of Ireland.


Join me on a journey of music, lost love, myth, and a Christmas miracle or two that will lead our characters to the love they were meant to find.


Bonus Content ❄ Included:


  • Shortbread Recipe

  • Charlotte's Southern Garland

  • The Legend of the Claddagh Ring

  • The Story Behind the Story

  • Discussion Questions

  • An excerpt from the novel Becoming Mrs. Lewis


With💕JOY,

Patti

A LowCountry Christmas

Mary Alice Monroe

Available in Mass Market Paperback, Hardcover, e-book, audiobook, and Audio CD



The “lovely and memorable tale” (Luis Carlos Montalván, New York Times bestselling author) of a wounded warrior and his younger brother who discover the true meaning of the Christmas holiday in this timeless story of family bonds.


As far as ten-year-old Miller McClellan is concerned, it’s the worst Christmas ever. His father’s shrimp boat is docked, his mother is working two jobs, and with finances strained, Miller is told they can’t afford the dog he desperately wants. “Your brother’s return from war is our family’s gift,” his parents tell him. But when Taylor returns with PTSD, the stress and strain darken the family.


Then Taylor’s service dog arrives—a large black Labrador/Great Dane named Thor. His brother even got the dog! When Miller goes out on Christmas Eve with his father’s axe, determined to get his family the tree they can’t afford, he takes the dog for company—but accidentally winds up lost in the wild forest. In the midst of this emergency, the splintered family must come together and rediscover their strengths, family bond, and the true meaning of Christmas.

Christmas Bliss

Mary Kay Andrews

Available in Mass Market paperback, paperback, hardcover, e-book, audiobook


From the New York Times bestselling author of Summer Rental comes a novella that celebrates love, the holidays, and antiques


Christmas is coming, but Savannah antique dealer Weezie Foley is doubly distracted—both by her upcoming wedding to her longtime love, chef Daniel Stipanek and also by the fact that her best friend and maid-of-honor BeBe Loudermilk is due to give birth any day—and is still adamantly refusing to marry her live-in-love Harry. Readers have come to love these characters in Mary Kay Andrews’ three previous Savannah novels: Savannah Blues, Savannah Breeze, and Blue Christmas.


Christmas Bliss offers Andrews’s legions of fans the best of many things: familiar characters, a new novella for Christmas, and a celebration of Mary Key Andrews’s own favorite pastime-antiquing. Blue Christmas was a fan favorite, and now Christmas Bliss is sure to fly off store shelves and into the hands of Andrews’s fans in bestselling numbers.

Blue Christmas

Mary Kay Andrews

Available in Mass Market paperback, paperback, hardcover, e-book, audiobook


It’s the week before Christmas, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley is in a frenzy to garnish her shop for the Savannah historical district decorating contest, which she intends to win. Weezie is ready to shoot herself with her glue gun by the time she’s done, but the results are stunning. She’s certainly one-upped the owners of the trendy shop around the corner, but suddenly things start to go missing from her display, and there seems to be a mysterious midnight visitor to her shop.


Still, Weezie has high hopes for the holiday—maybe in the form of an engagement ring from her chef boyfriend. But Daniel, always moody at the holidays, seems more distant than usual.


Throw in Weezie’s decidedly odd family, a 1950s Christmas-tree pin, and even a little help from the King himself (Elvis, that is), and maybe there will be a pocketful of miracles for Weezie this Christmas Eve.
