THIS AND EVERY CHRISTMAS by Jaycee Weaver
SERIES:
Sinclair Sisters Trilogy #1
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHER: Sandia Sky Press

RELEASE DATE: October 1, 2021
PAGES: 145

As teens, their paths crossed every Christmas. This year, their paths intertwine.

Single father Noah Appel has suffered more loss than a man of twenty-five should. Between his grief and the mounting pressure of the approaching busy season, he’s overwhelmed—until an incident at his daughter’s school reintroduces him to a girl whose wild hair and quirky family always stood out from other visitors to his family’s tree farm. Only now, she’s a beautiful woman with a kind and helpful heart who throws him and his young daughter a welcome lifeline.

Offering to alleviate some of Noah’s stress seemed like the natural thing for music teacher Clari Sinclair to do, considering his family’s tree farm was the site of so many wonderful memories with her Christmas-obsessed family. Especially since the charming boy she once knew has grown into a handsome man whose burdens call to the deepest parts of her romantic heart.

Can these two turn memories of Christmases past into a future worthy of the Appel legacy?

**This book previously appeared in Hearts Aglow: the 2020 Christmas Lights Collection with stories from Chautona Havig, Toni Shiloh, and Cathe Swanson. Find the sequel this year in the 2021 Christmas Lights collection, Home for Christmas.**

Noah peered at his daughter, raising a questioning brow. “Luce, you want to sing in the Christmas show?”

She pulled her thumb out of her mouth with a rapid nod. “I love singing! I love Christmas!”

Eden’s eyes sparkling from Lucy’s round face, Noah couldn’t bring himself to disappoint her. “Okay, Luce.”

He assessed the teacher’s expectant smile. “Lead the way, Ms. -”

“Sinclair. Clari Sinclair.”

The hair on the back of his neck lifted. A loopy grin spread across his face as he gave her a closer look. Bright eyes he should have recognized glimmered at him.

“You got contacts.”

“I did. And you got tall.”

He chuckled. “You didn’t.”

“Hey! Five-five is a perfectly respectable height.”

She jerked her head toward the door, and Noah tugged Lucy’s hand to follow the pretty girl he’d been so drawn to when he was younger.

Clari Sinclair. He shook his head.

How many years had it been? Close to eight, maybe more. Felt like a lifetime. So much had changed since they were naive, carefree high schoolers. He gave her another once over, smiling at the unruly hair coming loose from the knot on her head. She looked the same, only older.

She may not have changed much, but he certainly had. And not all for the better.


NOW AND FOREVER CHRISTMAS by Jaycee Weaver
SERIES:
Sinclair Sisters Trilogy #2
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHER: Sandia Sky Press

RELEASE DATE: October 25, 2021 (paperback)
PAGES: 136

Romance ruined their friendship. This could be the Christmas they repair it.

CJ Sinclair never imagined trading her chef’s toque for the domestic life but her pregnant sister needs help over the holidays, and the timing couldn’t be better. A breakup and a bad case of burnout are just the top two on a list of things out of her control these days. Then there’s Tobin, her once best friend who she hasn’t spoken to in years. Now he’s everywhere all the time and sparking feelings she thought she got over ages ago.

The past eight years as a professional musician for the US Army prepared Tobin McGhee for his new job as high school band teacher. They didn’t prepare him for how he’d feel seeing CJ again. This time, though, he won’t make the same mistakes. He’s determined to rebuild the friendship they lost. Maybe even rediscover those feelings they had back in high school before everything went wrong.

Can they make holiday music together and rekindle the friendship they once had, or will romance ruin everything again?
The eBook version currently appears in Home for Christmas: 2021 Christmas Lights Collection with stories from Chautona Havig, Toni Shiloh, and Cathe Swanson.

Taking a moment to compose herself, CJ washed her hands at the sink. Enough. She had to face him some time.

“Aw, man. I love these things.”

Oh, she remembered.

Tobin’s groan set off a feeling inside her warmer and gooier than the center of the cookie he savored. His closed eyes allowed her a moment to peruse him.

He looked way too good and stirred up too many old feelings she wasn’t entirely comfortable remembering. Since high school, he’d grown more at ease with himself. His confidence was evident in his relaxed stance, the way he leaned so nonchalantly against the kitchen island.

He’d been funny, well-spoken, and self-deprecating during dinner – the same guy she’d known for half her life – while she’d barely been able to make eye contact, feeling as awkward as she had junior year after their breakup. Only now her awkwardness had little to do with Tobin and everything to do with her naivety and foolish choices.

“Still enjoy watching people eat, huh?”

CJ blinked, her cheeks flushing hot. “Nothing pleases a chef like knowing their food is appreciated.”

“If Lucy hadn’t been going on and on about how these were her favorite afterschool treat in the car, I might think you made them just for me.”

The twerp had the gall to wink.


Jaycee Weaver lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her amazing husband, three daughters, two crazy shih-tzus, and a dwarf rabbit. When she’s not writing, she’s probably in pursuit of her 90 million other hobbies or shuttling the kids around. Jaycee loves to read multiple genres, drink too much coffee, sing, take landscape and floral photos, sew, cook, bake, and craft nearly anything. She considers herself a recovering perfectionist and occasional hot mess. She does her best to live her faith in action, being open, honest, and real; letting God be Lord over the good, the bad, and the ugly even when it’s hard.
