As a writer, it’s always tough to say goodbye to characters you spend so much time with. As much as I start out with details about their lives, the characters take on a life of their own, adding pieces of themselves that are revealed as I write.
Garrett Christmas is a character I’ve had in my head for a while. Readers get a first glimpse of him in my book, Saving Drew, as owner of the local saloon. He shows up from time to time in following books, and he ended up being someone I wanted to know more. Someone who I felt deserved a love story.
Angelica Endicott is the youngest of the Endicott siblings and is the last of the family to move to Silver Bay. With lots of energy and spice, I felt she was the perfect match for Garrett – the perfect person to draw him out of his (perceived) grumpy shell.
Christmas is my favorite time of year and I was thrilled when Garrett and Angelica’s love story fell into that season. While I plan to get lost in Hallmark Christmas movies and devour my stack of Christmas romance novels to read, I hope you are surrounded by all the things and people you love this holiday season.
