U.S. Thanksgiving may be tomorrow (whaaaat?) BUT now ’tis the season when I start craving cozy Christmas reads. There’s something about the magic of my favorite holiday that can make even the creepiest suspense novel feel warm and cozy haha!

In doing my own research on what Christmas reads are available, I couldn’t help but pass along my finds to you, my dear readers ♥ Beginning now and continuing through the end of the year, I’m going to spotlight several new Christmasy releases as well as books from recent Christmas past. So… snuggle in, grab your fave hot beverage and comfiest blanket, turn on some Christmas tunes and start your bookish Christmas list! Oh… and did I mention there are GIVEAWAYS with EACH POST in this series??!!

Special thanks to Amanda Dykes for the gorgeous graphic and to each author who has graciously offered a giveaway for their spotlight post!

about the book


On his cousin’s Christmas cruise wedding, navy SEAL Jordan Somerton anticipated having the typical best man duties–not facing down criminals boarding the ship. But when the luxury liner is infiltrated by men determined to kidnap the flower girl, he’s plunged into an unexpected mission.

Maid of honor and DEA agent Amy Delgado hasn’t forgiven Jordan for a misunderstanding in their pasts. But with her young niece targeted, she must draw on Jordan’s skills as a protector. Signs point to an inside job.

With a traitor in their midst, can they ensure that every passenger returns home safely for the holidays…even as they find love amid deepening danger?

    I’ve never been on a cruise but would love to go. Hubby however listens to all the horror stories and says no!

  2. I love reading Christmas books this time of year!!!

    The only “cruise” I’ve been on is a short one my husband and I won and dubbed the “Bahama Vomit” cruise. It was AWFUL. Short trip between Florida and the Bahamas on this big, slow ship. The water was so choppy that virtually everyone (with the exception of our 6-month old who mercifully nursed and slept the entire time) was vomiting into bags. Never been on a “cruise” since. Ferry boat, yes. River cruise, yet. Ocean. No. Probably never again.

  3. Kay Garrett

    No, I’ve never been on a cruise. I would love to go to Alaska some day. My parents got pregnant with me while Dad was stationed in Alaska but due to Mom being RH negative they sent them back state side. They always talked about how pretty it was. It’s on our bucket list and a cruise to there would make it amazing.

  4. Tracey Hagwood

    I guess I’m in the minority, but living on the east coast cruises are big vacation choices and I’ve been on at least 5 cruises. It crossed my mind not long ago it would make a great setting for a suspense. When I first saw Liz’s book I put it on my Christmas read list. Thanks for the giveaway Liz!

  5. Amy

    Yes, I’ve been on several cruises and am already looking forward to sailing again in 2018. The absolute best vacation for the price.

  6. Perrianne Askew

    I have never been on a cruise, but an Alaskan one in summer would be great. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  7. I’ve been on an evening cruise of Puget Sound, taken a ferry to the San Juan Islands, and ridden the Ducks in Seattle, but I’ve never been on an actual cruise ship (unless you count the hours I spent watching The Love Boat in the 70’s & 80’s).

  8. Faith Creech

    Yes, for our 30th Anniversary my husband and I went on an Alaskan cruise. It was so much fun and very romantic!

  9. emilee

    I have never been on a cruise but most of my friends and family have and they recommend it. Love the cover

  10. Trixi

    I’ve not been on a cruise yet, but my husband and I plan on doing the inside passage of Alaska soon (within about 5 years). I’d also love to do a Caribbean or Jamaican cruise someday 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  11. Tiffany Hall

    I haven’t been on a cruise, but I would love to someday go on one to Hawaii.
    Sounds like a great book! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  12. Donna B

    I’ve never been on a cruise but I don’t know if I could stand to go on one either. If I could just get it out of my head that I wasn’t on land and surrounded by water, then I probably would enjoy it.

  13. I’ve never been on a cruise, but I am going on one next year right after the 4th of July! We have good cabins (or so I’m lead to believe). I can’t wait!
