Christmas Countdown Blitz Day 12: Caitlyn's Christmas Wish by Laura L. Walker
Laura L. Walker grew up in a large family in the beautiful Gila Valley of southern Arizona. From the time Laura was young, ideas for stories bombarded her brain. She would spend hours drawing her characters on paper and fantasizing about their adventures. Life became more serious, however, when Laura met her own hero while at college in northern Arizona and they later became the parents of six children. In between spurts of grocery shopping, sewing costumes or quilts, transporting kids to practices, and making dinner, Laura still enjoys putting her imagination to good use. Laura is the author of two LDS contemporary romances, Pierced by Love and The Matchup. Caitlyn’s Christmas Wish is her first e-novella.
Q & A With The Author:
5. What is
the hardest thing you've ever done?
Even though I've lived through several difficult events, I would
have to say the hardest thing for me is raising my six children. I love them
all to pieces and wouldn't trade them for the world, but each of them has
presented unique challenges to me. As their mother, collectively, I feel
exhausted at times but am especially proud when they accomplish or pull through
something that was hard for them.
that we've gotten to know each other, tell me a story. It can be long or short.
From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just
make sure it's yours. What's your story?
True story: My
favorite all-time movie is The Sound of Music. As a tween, I was absolutely
enthralled with that story (and to this day, I can't even explain why). Maybe
it was the songs Julie Andrews sang, maybe it was her character or the gorgeous
scenery . . . I'm not sure. For me, all of the story elements in that movie
combined to make the perfect story for me. I watched it so many times on
television that my adult brothers now will not allow their wives to watch it.
This is something I only found out about a few years ago when I was sitting at
a table with my sisters-in-law. I was stunned and felt so bad that I ruined it
Just when former model and single mother Caitlyn Drevier Reel has finally put her life back on track after a divorce and six-month stint in rehab, she is surprised to receive an invitation from her ex-in-laws to spend Christmas with the family. After all, she reasons, her ex-husband Grant is constantly on the road with his band and it's only fair to allow them to get to know her young son, Brody. What Caitlyn isn't prepared for, however, is the spark of attraction she feels for Ridge, Grant's older brother, or the sense of belonging to their wonderful family once again. Ridge, who is recovering from his own personal heartache, seems to feel the same about her. As they work together to ensure the success of the Winter Festival that his parents have organized for their small Wyoming town, Caityln begins to envision a bright future. But will Grant's unexpected arrival keep her Christmas wish from coming true?
