CHRISTMAS GIFT BOOKS FOR THE READERS IN YOUR LIFE
If you're looking for some fun reads to put under the tree this year, I've got you set -
These paperbacks are available now; each is geared toward a different kind of reader:
MILES LEFT YET - For the reader in your life who is either newly retired or thinking or retirement. In MILES, a road trip for a motley crew from the Granite Ridge Retirement Community—in a vintage Mustang convertible, no less—quickly turns into an adventure of second chances, fresh starts, and the discovery that love is never a landmark in the rearview mirror. No matter what the odometer reads, as long as there’s gas in the tank, there are always still new roads to explore...plenty of miles left yet.
WORDQUAKE - For your young reader (this one's at about the 4th grade reading level). Izzy Ashby is a girl who hates reading...one day, her hatred grows strong enough to shake all the words from her elementary school. At first, this seems like a dream come true! At least, until utter chaos breaks out...WORDQUAKE is short and includes some fun illustrations--perfect to keep your kids reading over their holiday break, or even to snag a reluctant reader.
ONE FATEFUL CHRISTMAS EVE - For your fan of clean romance or women's fiction. Mallory Stewart is a young on-the-rise editor, certain she's about to land a position at one of the “Big Five” publishing houses. All she has to do to clinch the deal is attend her prospective boss’s Christmas Eve party. But Graham Kendall, the charismatic author of a bestselling book on fate, insists her plans are about to be thwarted. Mallory immediately discounts Dr. Kendall’s warnings. Though she edited his book, the industrious Mallory believes in hard work rather than luck or good fortune. When a series of devastating Christmas Eve misadventures conspire against her, Mallory is forced to reexamine everything—her beliefs, her dreams, her own definition of success. What will Mallory choose? What will she discover—about Graham, about her own destiny, even about…a man’s socks? (Yes, socks.)
