Mystic Ridge is a small town set deep in the mountains of Tennessee. The townsfolk go out of their way to embrace everyone with cookies, kittens and a warm welcome. They enjoy nothing more than setting folks properly on their destined path.
You’ll meet Violet and her invisible friend Winifred, who lived on the open prairie in the eighteen hundreds. Although she’s just a ghost, she longs for a second chance at life. Millie owns the local antique shop and assists folks in finding items they misplaced centuries earlier. Unbeknownst to her mother, four-year-old Ruby gives life and death advice.
Poovie Lamay is the local social media mogul and supermom with a huge appreciation for life. She tweets and blogs and sells her musing to outlets worldwide and lives a ridiculously happy life—as long as it can be from her own home.
Intuitive Mariah and Daisy Gilbert are excited as new residents to Mystic Ridge, and swiftly learn they were brought there to assist a needy nun with an odd problem.
You’ll meet Josephine Even who has a backyard full of ghosts from the civil war, each one requesting unique assistance. And of course, Mystic Ridge’s most famous resident is Sister Crystal Grace who was lost in the mountainside for many weeks as a child. As a pillar of the community, no one knows she’s been gallivanting through time and now yearns to leave Mystic Ridge forever.
And amidst all the unusual occurrences, almost all of the cats and kittens born in Mystic Ridge are solid white and occasionally heroic.
Dazzler Spitfire is an elf on a mission. She has until Christmas to pull herself together, keep her magic, and her life. She heads to Holly, a town devoted to Christmas and home to her best friend. Together, they craft a plan to stay one step ahead of those wanting to bring her in front of the North Pole Review Board for trial.
Todd Dugan knows magic only works for others. His divorce from Dazzler’s cousin proves it. He’s fine tending to the reindeer for the western leg of Santa’s midnight ride. When he agrees to chair the holiday committee in Holly, he’ll prove human technology is just as good as magic.
Neither counts on the Dugan family curse: When a Dugan meets his mate, the lights in Holly will fall dark.
On the eve of Thanksgiving, the town’s mayor demands a demonstration to prove the Christmas decorations are behaving as they should. The tech works until Dazzler shows up, bringing his ex-wife with her. Now the town is determined to reunite Todd and his ex-wife.
But Todd’s thoughts are on Dazzler. A single kiss decides his fate. Dazzler sets out to seduce him. Is he willing to risk their friendship for something more? His heart makes the choice for him. For a brief moment, he has it all—friendship, love, and magic. Then Dazzler loses her magical abilities and gets sick. Worse, in a freak sleigh accident, Dazzler reduces the town’s Christmas displays to ash and cinders.

Bad Day for the Home Team
by Alex O’Meara
What makes a man walk into a restaurant on a bright, beautiful Memorial Day afternoon in a small Arizona town, pull out a gun and shoot forty people before killing himself?
That’s what Sam Tryor is trying to figure out. Only he’s trying to figure it out from beyond the grave. Instead of a who-dun-it, this mystery is a what-made him-do-it. With the help of a gorgeous reporter, a world-weary cop, and his brother, Sam seeks the reason for his horrific crime, and his search leads him to a conclusion that is as disturbing for what it reveals about us as it is shocking for what it reveals about him.

Dodging desperate women eager to bag him as a husband is not Jay Dugan’s idea of a good time. He’d much rather find out how things tick. When the god of time offers him a job maintaining that clock for the universe, Jay jumps at the offer. There are only two rules: Maintain the clock and beware of ghosts from the past.
Anysia Willot wants nothing more than to join her dead fiancé on the Other Side. Nysia’s one chance is to trick Jay into stopping the clock; and she’ll use any means necessary, including seduction.
As the clock counts down to New Year’s Day, Nysia finds herself being seduced by both the technology of this new world and Jay. Can she stay with Jay? Or will time stop because the past isn’t finished with her?
From infancy, she has been trained as though she were the son and heir of the house of Sanematsu. Now, the time has come for Sanematsu Yoshikane to face the test that will declare her samurai or send her into humiliation and defeat.
But that is just the first test. Once she has passed it, she must confront both the responsibility her position imposes and the fact that, having lived all her 16 years in a monastery, she is ignorant of much of the real life the Japanese people.
To correct that, she decides to undertake a pilgrimage, one that will not only awaken her understanding of her people but make her painfully aware of what it means to be a woman in Nihon.
