Since the Season of Giving is upon us, the very wonderful, Marina Adair, author of the Upcoming Release, KISSING UNDER THE MISTLETOE, has asked A Tasty Read if she could offer a Giveaway of the book...and who doesn't LOVE Giveaway's!!

So Thank You to Marina, and to all of you who will enter this Giveaway. 


Regan Martin stopped believing in Christmas miracles six years ago when she lost everything—her house, her job, and her impeccable reputation in the wine industry—after she fell in love with a man she had no idea was married. Then Regan gets a chance for a fresh start in the Napa Valley. With her dream job, dream home, and her daughter enrolled in a wonderful new school, she starts wondering if holiday wishes really do come true.

But she soon tumbles back down to earth when she learns that her new boss is none other than Gabe DeLuca, the scorned wife’s brother. Gabe wants nothing more than home-wrecking Regan Martin out of his life, his sister’s world, and his family’s business. Mostly, he wants the lush beauty out of his head. Yet his attempts to run her out of town have him thinking twice, especially when he sees that Regan may hold the key to tracking down his sister’s stolen start-up capital. Even worse for Gabe, Regan might just be his Christmas wish and hold the key to his heart.

To Enter:

Forgot to answer your question.

WE used to have a big Christmas Eve celebration, but with some family no longer with us, some moved away, it is a much smaller group and we have started some new traditions. WE have gone out to eat just the 3 of us for Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day, I have a meal with my daughter and her family along with my husband and mom.

Decorate the house a bit and fill a stocking for our granddaughter along with the gift exchanging.

My favorite holiday tradition is filling the stockings. Every Christmas, it's the job that only I have. It's really fun picking out stuff for my family's stockings AND my own. I used to be bummed when no one else added stuff to the stockings, but now I've embraced it and have lots of fun with it, even acting mock-surprised when I go through it. :)

It hasn't been a long tradition, but my kids and I make cut-out sugar cookies on Christmas day. On years when we are away from home on Christmas, we do it when finally open presents at home.

My most favorite tradition is my girls and I snuggling under blankets with our hot coco(of course) while we watch the Christmas movies that we recorded from The Hallmark Channel.

My favorite holiday tradition was riding the town fire truck on Christmas Eve with my family through the streets of my mom's hometown. The snow would fall on our faces as we sang Christmas Carols. Then Santa would visit every child in town, bringing gifts especially for them. It was magical!
