Here are the eBooks for this week’s Winning Wednesday contest:
Title: A Wish for Winter by Viola Shipman
Publisher: Graydon House
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: 391 pages
With echoes of classic Hollywood love stories like Serendipity and An Affair to Remember, Viola Shipman’s latest winter charmer following the USA TODAY bestseller The Secret of Snow is sure to tug on heartstrings and delight readers who love books about books, missed connections and the magic of Christmas.
Despite losing her parents in a tragic accident just before her fourteenth Christmas, Susan Norcross has had it better than most, with loving grandparents to raise her and a gang of quirky, devoted friends to support her. Now a successful bookstore owner in a tight-knit Michigan lakeside community, Susan is facing down forty—the same age as her mother when she died—and she can’t help but see everything she hasn’t achieved, including finding a love match of her own. To add to the pressure, everyone in her small town believes it’s Susan’s destiny to meet and marry a man dressed as Santa, just like her mother and grandmother before her. So it seems cosmically unfair that the man she makes an instant connection with at an annual Santa Run is lost in the crowd before she can get his name.
What follows is Susan and her friends’ hilarious and heartwarming search for the mystery Santa—covering twelve months of social media snafus, authors behaving badly and dating fails—as well as a poignant look at family, friendship and what defines a well-lived and well-loved life.
Title: Before I Let Go by Kennedy Ryan
Skyland Book One
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: 400 pages
Their love was supposed to last forever. But when life delivered blow after devastating blow, Yasmen and Josiah Wade found that love alone couldn’t solve or save everything.
It couldn’t save their marriage.
Yasmen wasn’t prepared for how her life fell apart, but she’s is finally starting to find joy again. She and Josiah have found a new rhythm, co-parenting their two kids and running a thriving business together. Yet like magnets, they’re always drawn back to each other, and now they’re beginning to wonder if they’re truly ready to let go of everything they once had.
Soon, one stolen kiss leads to another…and then more. It’s hot. It’s illicit. It’s all good—until old wounds reopen. Is it too late for them to find forever? Or could they even be better, the second time around?
Award-winning and bestselling “powerhouse” author Kennedy Ryan is at her absolute best in this compelling, scorching novel about hope and healing, and what it truly means to love for a lifetime (USA Today).
Title: Tripwrecked by A. Poland
Publisher: Entangled: Amara
Genre: Contemporary, Gay, Romance
Length: 312 pages
Aiden Cole isn’t exactly running away. He’s just taking a month-long vacation halfway round the world. Spontaneously.
He may be ditching his job, his disastrous love life, family, and everything else, but nope, he’s just on vacation. Four weeks in a tiny little blip of an Australian town with impossibly blue waters and lush greenery. Only, he wasn’t expecting the world’s sexiest—albeit worst—handyman on the Sunshine Coast.
A fling, or even a little handsy action, was definitely not on his itinerary, but single dad Finn Schultz is too impressive to ignore. Weirdly tall, dark-eyed, and annoyingly hot, Finn might be worth adjusting the plan. Not to mention his tendency to keep rescuing Aiden—from wandering lost on the road, or even from what might be the most nightmarish spider on the planet.
It’s just supposed to be a vacation. A respite from the horrible mess he’s left behind. And yet somehow this strange but beautiful little town—and especially Finn—are slowly stealing Aiden’s near-broken heart. But there’s only so long he can hide from his so-called-life before it catches up with him…
