My guest for the ninth day of my Twelve Books for Christmas blog is USA Bestselling author Katherine Garbera. Katherine has dropped by to tell us about her new Christmas release,Christmas at the Candied Apple Cafe. I can almost smell the cinnamon!


There’s nothing so magical as Christmas in New York…

Santa is coming to New York!

Snow is falling, excitement is high and the delicious scent of chocolate drifts along Fifth Avenue – the Candied Apple Café is ready for Christmas! And no one is busier than publicist Iona Summerlin. With so much to do, she doesn’t have time to think about men, dating, or the fact her last boyfriend ditched her for her brother… Relationships are off the menu!

Hotel boss Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to the first Christmas since losing his wife. His six-year-old daughter Sofia has lost her belief in Christmas magic along with her mother, and he has no idea what to do. But an unusually festive business meeting at the Candied Apple – and meeting the beautiful Iona – starts to defrost Mads’ frozen heart, and suddenly life seems full of light and sparkle again.

If only they dare to believe, maybe all their Christmas dreams will come true!

Do you have any favourite family Christmas traditions? If so, what are they?
All of my traditions involve food and family. We bake cookies together on the Sunday before Christmas and then on Christmas eve have our version of the feast of the seven fishes.

That sounds fun!

We open our Christmas presents very early on Christmas morning (like 5 a.m.).
