ABOUT THE BOOK
Snowbound in Winterberry Falls: By Ann Brodeur
Part of the Anaiah Christmas Novella collection
Release date: November 6th, 2020
Contemporary Christian Romance

A buried story. A powerful senator. A Christmas they won’t forget.
Owning her own PR firm is all reporter Stephanie Clark wants for Christmas, but the idea of running a prestigious election campaign in the country’s capital throws her stomach into knots. A last minute vacation road trip to focus and seek God’s direction for her life ends up in disaster when she gets caught in the worst snowstorm to hit Vermont in over a decade, crashing her into a small town and the one person she’d rather forget.
Former photojournalist Jason Miller hadn’t planned on being solely responsible for saving his family business from financial ruin. He’s barely keeping the newspaper in print, his News Editor has gone AWOL during the town’s most celebrated holiday festival, and reports of missing Christmas decorations have everyone on edge.
When a desperate knock at the newsroom door brings a ghost from Christmas past back into his life, can Jason make up for his prior behavior without breaking his promise to Stephanie’s father? Will Stephanie’s quest to solve the town’s Christmas caper—and uncover the truth about Jason’s disappearance—cost her everything she’s ever wanted?
Welcome to the blog! It happens to be my favorite time of year. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?
Stephanie: My favorite thing about Christmas is time with family. Taking a break from the crazy schedules and giving back to the less fortunate. That’s why I love putting together shoeboxes for our church program in D.C., and why I was so desperate to get home for the holidays.
Jason: But you’re home now.
Stephanie: Home is with you.
Jason: *laughs* And I love having time to sleep. This year I’m going to the church Christmas Eve service for the first time in over a decade with Steph.
Stephanie: And then you’re going to sleep.
Jason: Yes – sleep.
Stephanie: You need like, a decade to catch up on your sleep. So, I’ll let you have a nap on Christmas day. After we open presents.
Jason: Gee. You’re generous.
Stephanie: *shrugs* Well, it’s not like I had a lot of time to get you anything. The least I can do is let you have a nap. So…Merry Christmas. *grins*
Ha! Well some Christmases feel like they are worth of a naptime! If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
Stephanie: The most recent getaway I took was to skiing in Vermont and that ended up badly for my car.
Jason: I can’t believe you still had that car.
Stephanie: I loved that car. I still miss it.
Jason: But if you hadn’t crashed your car, we wouldn’t be spending Christmas together this year.
Stephanie: True. But it’s still sad Old Red is gone.
Jason: But I’m not.
Stephanie: *laughs* You are not. I’m so glad. We should go somewhere they don’t ski.
Jason: *laughs loudly* Yeah. Let’s go someplace that has a pool.
Stephanie: Someplace beachy where you can take amazing photographs.
Stephanie: Yes! Hawaii. Let’s do Hawaii.
Jason: It’s a great honeymoon spot.
Stephanie: *grins* It sure is.
I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii! What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Stephanie: Interior design.
Jason: That’s not a chore.
Stephanie: It is when you’re related to my mother.
Jason: *laughs* Um…I don’t think I’ll expand on your answer.
Jason: I don’t like doing the laundry – well, I don’t mind the washing part, but I hate trying to find matching socks.
Stephanie: Yeah. Your machine must eat those missing socks or something. Or maybe they’ve walked away.
Jason: *rolls eyes and chuckles* Nice one.
Stephanie: Thank you. *grins*
I don’t mind laundry. Dusting on the other hand….. it wouldn’t break my heart if I didn’t have to do that again! Ten years ago, who did you think you would be now?
Stephanie: Definitely thought we’d be married with a couple of kids by now. I also thought we were on track to win that most-coveted award for journalism…
Jason: Yeah. We had dreams.
Stephanie: BIG ones.
Jason: But then, I had to go mess things up.
Stephanie: Hold on – that wasn’t your fault. It definitely wasn’t yours. *turns to interviewer* It totally wasn’t his fault that he left. He was forced to make a decision and I can’t even imagine how hard it was for him.
Jason: But if I had to do it over again –
Stephanie: No. Let’s not even go there. It’s in the past and we’re here because it was all part of God’s plan. And if you want to know what happened…well, you’ll just have to read our story in SNOWBOUND IN WINTERBERRY FALLS.
Jason: *winks and stage whisper* Awesome story. Go read it!
I will definitely be doing that! Thanks so much for chatting with me today!!
