It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

Well maybe not here in Florida weather-wise, but it sure is feeling like Christmas in spirit.

I wanted to take time away from the hustle & bustle of the holiday season to share these great new reads with you. So, grab a mug of hot chocolate, and settle down in your cozy reading chair for a December chock full of Hallmark worthy books.

First up is Operation Santa by Author Tina Susedik. This is a hilarious Rom-Com of epic proportions. It’s only 99¢ and also available in Kindle Unlimited.

How much trouble can a man get into while trying to win his estranged wife back? David is about to find out in this humorous novella.

When Marci Hofer becomes fed up with the lack of attention from her husband, David, she decides to leave him. Devastated, he begins a campaign to bring her home. Calling it Operation Santa, he learns what he thought would be as simple as sending her gifts can backfire in the most embarrassing ways. Will he survive the battle to get her back?


Next, we have the brand-new release by Teresa Keefer, The Magickal Christmas Quilt. I was fortunate enough to be able to read an ARC copy of this and you’ll love this Contemporary Holiday Romance, with a flash back to the past.

Carolyn Keene had a successful job in the city as a corporate attorney, a boyfriend who was equally successful, a fantastic apartment overlooking the lake. What mo Things took a turn when she received a summons to wrap up the business of her estranged father in a remote town in Wyoming called Persimmon Grove. A trip she hoped would be as quick and effortless as possible so she could return to her perfect life back in the city.

What she didn't count on was a snowstorm, a stray dog, a persistent cowboy, and a quilt that seemed to pull it all together in one magickal package.


I have followed The Lost Trinkets series since book one. Book eleven, A Winning Belief, is releasing this week with one final book to follow in early 2022. If you haven’t read this series, trust me, do yourself a favor and check it out. The entire series is available in Kindle Unlimited.

Healing a ghost’s painful past could risk Shannon’s hard-earned happiness.

With news of Shannon’s talent going viral, she retreats to the one thing she can still control: returning the trinkets in her box to their rightful owners. This time, she needs a clue as to how to help Elaine, the local church’s resident spirit. It comes in the form of an old coin, one that she senses was once one of many.

How coin and ghost are connected is a mystery she must solve to put Elaine’s shadowed past to rest, heal the deep-running rifts in Petrie’s Crossing—and free Shannon to build a bright future with her fiancé, Mitch.


A Christmas For Santa by Taylor Anne is another heartwarming holiday read and one of my favorites. Be sure to check it out for only 99¢ on Amazon.

Christmas…a time of joy, until Jill McDowell’s niece is kidnapped from a busy mall. Scared and feeling powerless, Jill welcomes Mall Santa Matt Webb’s help and take-charge attitude. But can Jill trust this man’s mesmerizing eyes and sexy grin?

Tossing aside his own fears and insecurities, Matt jumps into action the second Chloe goes missing. He’ll do anything to protect Jill from experiencing the agony he knows cuts straight to the heart. The anguish of losing a child.

Matt wants only to bring Chloe home safely. But even if he does, can his tormented heart allow Jill and her five-year-old niece into his life? Will Jill and Chloe’s love be enough to bring the joy of Christmas to Santa?


Want a thriller to add to your TBR list? Then check out the explosive final book, Can’t Go Back , in the bestselling Devlin & Falco series by Debra Webb.

The past and the present collide in the final installment of USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb’s Devlin & Falco series, threatening everything these two detectives care about.

Birmingham detectives Kerri Devlin and Luke Falco arrive at the scene of a double homicide to discover that nothing makes sense. A woman and her child are dead, and though the husband says he killed them, the evidence says otherwise. Why would a man confess to unspeakable murders he didn’t commit?

What starts as an open-and-shut case explodes into a web of new leads. Devlin and Falco get to work tracking down every single one—including a disturbing connection between the murders and Falco’s dark past.

Falco knows the incident from eight years ago will jeopardize the partnership he’s built with Devlin, both on and off the job. If he could go back, he would—but what happened happened, and there’s a murderer on the loose. Devlin and Falco must slog through the pain to get to the truth; and so far the only truth they know is that everyone is lying.


I hope you enjoy our reading list for December.

From all of us at Poised Pen Productions, to all of you, we wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Joyous Holiday Season.

Until next time, happy reading.
