CHRISTMAS TOGETHER by Bell Renshaw
SERIES: Winter, Montana #5
GENRE: Contemporary Romance (Clean & Wholesome)
RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2022
Vonnie Bradley is back in Winter, Montana to step in for local veterinarian, Doc Sandborn, while he undergoes cancer treatments. Still recovering from a bad breakup, Vonnie knows being home for Christmas and her brother’s wedding seems like the perfect balm for a broken heart.
Simeon Parker knows it’s his last Christmas in Winter. He’s avoided responsibility by escaping to the picturesque town in Montana to serve on the crew of Firetruck 17, but he know it can’t last. Daily emails from his adoptive parents are piling up, but before he can face his fate in Texas, he’s got one last job to do.
Paired together to host a fundraiser for Doc, Simeon wonders if this Christmas might not be so bad after all, while Vonnie does her best to keep her distance. Facing her unfulfilling role as a vet in a multi-doctor practice back on Boise, Vonnie fears failure is right around the corner. Will she admit defeat and quit her job, or is opportunity about to knock?
Their attraction is evident, but Vonnie throws up roadblocks at every turn and Simeon wonders if what he wants could become a reality. Will they go their separate ways, or could this be the first in a long line of Christmases together?
Welcome back to one last Christmas in Winter, Montana where sparks fly and kisses are shared during holidays together.
by Bell Renshaw, author of Christmas Together
My father and I have always loved to watch Christmas movies together. In fact, when I started to write the first book in the Winter, Montana Christmas series it was because I wanted to give my dad a book for Christmas – that became One Christmas In Winter.
When I thought of the idea for Christmas Together, the fifth and final book of the series, it was two of our favorite movies that I drew inspiration from. One is titled A Christmas Romance with Oliva Newton John and Gregory Harrison and the second was Christmas Comes to Willow Creek with John Schneider, Tom Wopat, and Kim Delaney.
Both of these movies are so special to me (even though they are from the late 80s and early 90s) and both share that joy of Christmas with wonder and romance. I’m sure, when you read Christmas Together, you’ll be able to pin point the scene that is my nod to A Christmas Romance.
And, to bring you into the book just a little here are each of my characters first lines:
Vonnie Bradley shot up from her desk chair at the sound of a clattering metal tray followed by a series of short barks.
The sound of the alarm always sent a rush of adrenaline through Simeon Parker.
