Christmas at Wynter House
Emily Harvale - 2019
After a frosty welcome, things soon heat up at Wynter House. Neva Grey is looking forward to spending a quiet Christmas with her family in the cosy cottage they’ve rented in the picture-postcard village of Wyntersleap. Nestled between rolling hills and a gently burbling river, it’s going to be idyllic. Except it’s not. Torrential rain causes the river to burst its banks and the quaint little village isn’t quite so cosy with water lapping at the doors. Add to that a power cut and a sudden blizzard and Christmas is looking bleak ... until gorgeous Adam Wynter invites them all to Wynter House. Although not everyone is happy to share the ancestral home. Adam’s elder brother, Rafe is less than pleased. Their grandmother, Olivia extends a grudging welcome. And for Carruthers, the oddly arrogant butler, unexpected guests are a Christmas surprise he could do without. Especially one as troublesome as Neva’s eight-year-old niece. But something’s not quite right at Wynter House. What is Rafe intent on hiding behind the locked doors of the old barn? And what really happened to his first wife? It’s a good thing Neva has a sense of humour. She’s going to need it this Christmas at Wynter House. This is book one in the Wyntersleap series but it can be read as a standalone. The Wyntersleap series is interlinked with the Merriment Bay series and several characters appear in both series. What readers are saying about this book: “Emily Harvale is a romantic writing genius. So easy to read, and get absorbed into the story, this is one Christmas Cracker of a read.” – Rachel’s Random Reads. “This was such a laugh out loud, spirited read and I loved every single minute of it. Emily Harvale is a force to be reckoned with and as long as she keeps writing books, I’ll sure as hell keep reading them.” – The Writing Garnet “Another amazing book from this phenomenal author, the queen of the cozy romance! Emily’s storytelling is so descriptive and magical, I am always ready to pack my bags and head to whatever small town she is writing about.” – Audio Killed the Bookmark “With absolutely fabulous characters I found myself ‘just reading one more chapter’ every night. I’m off to download Emily’s other books.” – Wrong side of forty "This really was the loveliest story to escape into for an afternoon and allow the world to disappear – I’m just rather sorry it took me so long to try one of the author’s books. Definitely recommended by me. – Being Anne "I adore her wit and clever levity; and, if you are paying attention – she tosses in sudden nimble dashes and subtle nips of grin producing irony for an added treat." – Books and Bindings “If ever there was a book that would get you into the festive mood, then Christmas at Wynter House by Emily Harvale is that book.” – Books of all kinds "A truly superb read, and I cannot tell you how much I’m looking forward to more about Wyntersleap and Merriment Bay! I have no hesitation at all in recommending this one, and happily award it all five sparkly stars!" - Grace J. Reviewerlady

Twas the Night before Christmas (ILLUSTRATED)
Clement C. Moore - 2019
A company of men, women, and children went together just after the evening service in their church, and, standing around the tomb of the author of "A Visit from St. Nicholas," recited together the words of the poem which we all know so well and love so dearly. Dr. Clement C. Moore, who wrote the poem, never expected that he would be remembered by it. If he expected to be famous at all as a writer, he thought it would be because of the Hebrew Dictionary that he wrote. He was born in a house near Chelsea Square, New York City, in 1781; and he lived there all his life. It was a great big house, with fireplaces in it;—just the house to be living in on Christmas Eve. Dr. Moore had children. He liked writing poetry for them even more than he liked writing a Hebrew Dictionary. He wrote a whole book of poems for them. One year he wrote this poem, which we usually call "'Twas the Night before Christmas," to give to his children for a Christmas present. They read it just after they had hung up their stockings before one of the big fireplaces in their house. Afterward, they learned it, and sometimes recited it, just as other children learn it and recite it now. It was printed in a newspaper. Then a magazine printed it, and after a time it was printed in the school readers. Later it was printed by itself, with pictures. Then it was translated into German, French, and many other languages. It was even made into "Braille"; which is the raised printing that blind children read with their fingers. But never has it been given to us in so attractive a form as in this book. It has happened that almost all the children in the world know this poem. How few of them know any Hebrew! Every Christmas Eve the young men studying to be ministers at the General Theological Seminary, New York City, put a holly wreath around Dr.
