Happy January Everyone!
This month has brought some unusual weather for us, here in the south. I even had my very first snow days, as an adult. Which inspired this month’s Forgotten Book Challenge…
I stopped the book I was reading and dove into my e-shelves to find a “snowy” book. That is when I came across Snow Angel by Melanie Shawn. I couldn’t resist the snowy cover and the adorable dog on the cover! So I started reading it… it is about a small town and a young newcomer.
The Forgotten Book Challenge is a fun, Facebook group, where the focus is to find the buried treasures hidden deep in the electronic shelves of our e-readers.
After a long, exhausting week, I couldn’t get into the books I was currently reading. Therefore I went to my nook app and swiped once, and when the scrolling stopped, it landed on Mistletoe on Main Street by Olivia Miles. I remember it was a free download over a year ago, and I chose it completely because of the cover. (I just love Christmas stories.) I was expecting a sweet romance, set in a small town decorated with snow.

A wildfire out of control…
His twin brother is dead and the only way National Intelligence officer, Mitch Holden, is going to make it through the holidays is by staying focused on his latest SCVC Taskforce investigation—catching a homegrown terrorist with a penchant for arson. The terrorist has started a wildfire eating up thousands of acres of forest and putting dozens of people in danger. When Mitch is pulled off that assignment to play bodyguard to a sexy forensic psychologist who sees past all his defenses, he ends up in the middle of a personal wildfire that’s as out of control as the one burning around the two of them.
A killer on the loose…
The trial that should have made her career cost Dr. Emma Collins everything—her home, her future, the baby that was growing inside her after she testified against famous actor Chris Goodsman, debunking his insanity defense and sending him to prison for murder. Rebuilding her life in the aftermath, Emma now rescues horses, dogs, and juvenile delinquents, and there’s no way she’s heading to a safe house because Chris Goodsman has escaped. She refuses to let anyone terrorize her or destroy her life again. But when a smart-talking, irresistible federal agent shows up insisting he has to protect her, she realizes her new bodyguard needs a bit of therapy. Good thing taking in lost causes happens to be her specialty.
Two people filled with grief may get burned…
Trapped at the ranch by the wildfire, Mitch and Emma explore a searing attraction, but soon discover they’re not alone. A killer has joined them—one who will do anything to get revenge and isn’t afraid to take out anyone who gets in his way.
