about the book

A Collection of Heartwarming, Small-Town Holiday Romances

One Enchanted Christmas

Last December, author Maren Grant went on a magical date with her book’s cover model—Colin Renwycke. Fast forward one year. With a looming deadline, Maren is desperate to recapture her creative spark. Then she remembers Colin’s invitation to visit his family’s Iowa farm…

Drew Renwycke never planned to move home and take over the farm. But he’s spent too many years watching his siblings unravel—including Colin. When Maren lands on his doorstep, he realizes she may be the key to coaxing his brother home.

(originally published as a standalone in 2015)

One Enchanted Eve

As a Denver Culinary Institute student, Colin Renwyke is out to embark on a new career as a pastry chef. But despite his skills in the kitchen, he’s a mess in the classroom and his ongoing disasters are proving too much for his prickly instructor. If he loses his spot at the school, he’s out of backup plans.

Culinary school instructor Rylan Jefferson has the chance to reclaim her dream of running her own bakery. But she only has until Christmas Eve to come up with the perfect recipe to impress an eccentric investor. She has no time for holiday parties or family plans . . . and especially not for her unruliest student baker.

But Colin has the one ingredient Rylan needs most—talent. Lots of it. And when he makes a proposal that just might solve both their problems, Rylan can’t say no.

(originally published as a standalone in 2016)

One Enchanted Noel

When Seb Pierce agreed to work for his wealthy grandfather for one year—in return for an early draw on his inheritance—he never expected the agreement to land him in a quirky small town in Iowa at Christmas-time, renovating a dilapidated theater…and running into a woman he never thought he’d see again.

Although she’s finally settled in her hometown, Leigh Renwycke can’t shake the familiar restlessness that used to get her into trouble. When Seb Pierce waltzes into her world and begs for her help planning the theater’s holiday reopening, it might be enough to jumpstart a new career…and to prove once and for all that the new-and-improved Leigh is here to stay. Until old secrets and new sparks get in the way…

(brand new in 2017!)

    I think the most enchanting part about Christmas is the lights and the music. And if, it’s possible, snow.

  7. Meredith Miller

    I love the idea of family cozied up in a warm home, before a fire, enjoying cocoa and fun while the kids are anticipating gifts. But alas, it’s always warm here in Florida and my kids are grown asking for money as gifts.

  8. Brittaney B

    I just love how Christmas puts Jesus front and center, particularly with all the Christmas carols being played everywhere. I feel like I remain in a state of worship for several weeks.

    My favorite aspect of Christmas is all the music. As a choral singer, I’ve been blessed to sing a wide variety of music inspired by the birth of Jesus.

  22. Amy

    The lights that remind me of the “LIGHT” of the world, who truly is the best Gift of all.

    I love all the Christmas lights and music. There’s nothing like turning all the other lights out and gazing at the Christmas tree in only candlelight and Christmas lights. Also, I love well-depicted manger scenes.
