The 12 Books of Christmas - Margaret Daley

Do I have a treat for you! This week, you have TWICE the chance to walk away with a free Christmas book, as Author Margaret Daley is giving away not one, but two books! I will randomly select two names on Saturday, so be sure to get in on the drawing by leaving a comment on this post.
Here are the two books that Margaret is offering this week:

Together for the Holidays
November 2009, Love Inspired
By Margaret Daley

A single mother with a traumatic past, Lisa Morgan only wants to raise her son with love and values. But lately the boy is struggling. When his basketball coach becomes a reluctant role model, Lisa is relieved. Until she learns that David Russell is also a cop. She's not ready to share her past—or her heart. And neither is the world-weary detective. Yet as Christmas comes closer, the true meaning of the holiday brings them together in ways they never dared dream.

Christmas Peril
December 2009 (anthology-2 in 1)

Christmas bells ring with danger in these suspenseful holiday stories

Merry Mayhem by Margaret Daley

When single mom Annie Coleman unexpectedly arrives in Christmas, Oklahoma, police chief Caleb Jackson suspects she's hiding secrets. He'll be watching her closely. And his protection is just what Annie and her daughter need, as danger has followed them to their new home.

Yule Die by Debby Giusti

It's hardly a happy holiday for medical researcher Callie Evans…until she
discovers her ailing patient is her long-lost brother. And he's being watched
by undercover police officer Joe Petrecelli. When the trio is abducted by a
cadre of bad guys, Joe and Callie will have to fight to keep her brother—and


Margaret relays a special Christmas moment

I think one of the special Christmas moments I looked back fondly on was the one where my parents had a open house every Christmas Eve. Friends and relatives (children included) visited, laughed, talked and ate. My mother cooked for days and put out quite a feast for the guests. She made eggnog from scratch which was great. I love eggnog to this day because of her recipe, but of course, the store bought kind isn’t as delicious as my mom’s. And then the calories in eggnog are a lot. I have to limit what I drink each holiday, but as a kid I didn’t have to.
