New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Lori Wilde struck a chord in readers last year with THE FIRST LOVE COOKIE CLUB. Now, just in time for the holiday season, she is revisiting that home-baked goodness with three Avon Impulse novellas, “The Christmas Cookie Chronicles.”
Wilde has built a strong contingent of fans with her series set in Twilight, TX. Last year, THE FIRST LOVE COOKIE CLUB hit the New York Times bestseller list and was featured in Time magazine. Publishers Weekly has called Wilde’s writing “as satisfying as a glass of lemonade on a hot day.” Wilde fits right into the small town romance niche that beloved writers such as Kristin Hannah and Susan Wiggs have made so popular. And the three Christmas Cookie Chronicles will be tasty holiday treats for women’s fiction and romance readers.
THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHRONICLES: CARRIE features a woman who eloped at 18 with her high school sweetheart, Mark. After a whirlwind wedding in Vegas, the two return home to Twilight, where their parents force them into an annulment. Seven years later, the two lead very different lives, but when they’re thrown together because of Mark’s job, they just might have a second chance at love.
In THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHRONICLES: RAYLENE, Wilde doubles up the love stories. After her husband of thirty-five years leaves her for keeping a dark secret, a brokenhearted bar owner, hires a young woman who is down on her luck, only to discover the woman is the daughter that she sold at birth in order to give her husband his start. Can the Christmas season bring the redemption she so desperately seeks and reconnect her to the love of her life? Determined to confront the mother who gave her up 35 years ago, an embittered woman goes incognito as a cocktail waitress at her mother’s bar, only to meet a former Navy SEAL who teaches her the true meaning of Christmas--forgiveness.
A disabled former Olympic hopeful stars in the final novella in the trilogy, THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHRONICLES: CHRISTINE. Now a baker, Christine lives a quiet, lonely life until an old high school flame, Dallas, moves back to town. Dallas is now a widower with four children, the oldest of whom resents Christine’s rekindled relationship with her father. It will take all the matchmaking skills of The First Love Cookie Club members and a little Christmas magic for Christine to bridge the gap and touch the heart of the wounded teen who can’t stop grieving the loss of her mother.
