Christmas Scavenger Hunt Round-Robin: The Gift of the Magpie

Christmas greetings! I hope you’re enjoying the Christmas Scavenger Hunt Round-Robin and learning about many Christmas books. If you’re starting here at my blog, that’s fine. I’ll give you the next author’s link. You need to visit every author’s site in the round-robin to qualify for the chance to win an Amazon gift card: $350 for first place, $250 for second place, or $150 for third place. The event officially runs December 6-12, 2020.

Thank you, for the opportunity to share about my book Gift of the Magpie. I love to talk about my tender and humorous Christmas romance that proves opposites distract.

English teacher and award-winning author of middle-grade adventure books for boys, Amanda Larrowe, is holed up in her house a few days before Christmas to meet a book deadline. But when she spots photographer, Camden Lancaster, moving in across the street, she’s horrified. Now that he’s knocked on her door and doesn’t recognize her as the girl he humiliated after their perfect high school Valentine’s Day date, she thinks it’s safe to be his fair-weather neighbor. Boy is she wrong.

I had fun writing this book. The characters were so real to me that writing their banter, Amanda’s struggles, and the humor came naturally to me.

Let’s continue the scavenger hunt. Go to Gift of the Magpie on Amazon at this link.

Find the answer to the question below by clicking on the book cover under “Look Inside,” which will give you a preview of Gift of the Magpie.

When Cam knocks on Amanda’s door, what liquid does she suspect his heart pumps?

When you’ve spotted the answer, go to the entry form, fill in the information and move on to the next blog given below!
