  1. Phyllis Aquilina

    I simply adore Nancy Barone’s novels. This particular one has put me in the right mood for Christmas holidays when I’ll sleep and take a break from teaching while enjoying the company of someone like Mitchell inspired by Aidan Turner! A big well done Ms Barone and keep on writing please!

    • Hallo, Hallo Ms Aquilina,

      I dearly had hoped this lovely might have been available via Scribd (on audiobook) or rather futilely I had hoped one of my local/regional libraries might have snagged a copy themselves (in print). However, I haven’t yet secured a copy myself to read and enjoy – though from your comments, I can see I’ll be in right wicked company! You know I hadn’t connected the dots about Aidan Turner til after I posted my interview with Ms Barone!! I admit, I started to watch “Poldark” but hestitated until I could read/finish the stories themselves. I saw approx. 15 minutes of the first episode of the series – wherein I LOVED the emotional depth of how he protrayed the character. I was just stilled. I look forward to seeing the whole series once I sort out how to listen/read the books. I might check to see if their on Audible (as I have the Plus Catalogue script for six months) and/or if their on Scribd.

      Thanks for sharing your Barone #booklove and for giving me such a delight of a comment to find on my blog! I appreciate your time and for adding to the loveliness of this post. This Christmas Eve, I’m catching up with my replies – it was a hard won year for family and I, and I wasn’t always able to respond as the comments came into my blog’s feeds. Please note how much I cherish them and how happy I am to hear from regular readers and visitors alike; it is kind to have notes to read as it helps me gauge how my content and posts are resonating with others. For that, know you’ve #blessed me!! A very happy holiday season to you and yours and a very blessed New Year’s 2021.

      PS: If/when I can secure a copy of this novel, I’ll re-respond to your note to let you know my reactions!!

  2. I love books with holiday flair. And can I go to this inn? I saw the art and it looks so homey! Anyway, wonderfil interview! It put me in the mood for all things Christmas haha! Oh, and I love the movie White Christmas!!!

      Hallo, Hallo Greg,

      I’ve not been able to respond to this kind note of yours nor return to adding commentary to your lovely book blog since I initially sorted out ‘how’. Forgive me. Most months of this year I was muddling through and just trying to keep surfacing on my blog – which I noticed a bit lately as I did a running total of books unread yet featured (ie. showcased, spotlighted, extracted, etc) which equated out a bit unequally to the books I’ve actually ‘read’. It was one of those non-bookish years apparently for me and yet, I kept ‘trying!’ dearly to read and to finish more each month. I also just recently sorted out how to listen to my LibroFM audiobooks (ie. the ALCs) as of last night, so that felt like an accomplishment all of its own as I have wanted to do more with those throughout the year (ie. blogging, reviewing, tweeting, sharing reactions, etc).

      Seeing you pop up on this short interview this early #blogmas was an unexpected JOY. So thank you! You’ve always been such a kind friend to support me and leave me notes/comments on my blog. One of these days I’ll feel I can reciprocate properly. I spent most of #blogmas posting Fantasy showcases (you can read the abridged recap here) or Sweet Romances (see my retrospective on the event here) whilst I also turnt in a recapture of my abridged #SciFiMonth, too the first week of December!! Towards that end – I haven’t yet updated how the leftover stories are shifting forward into the first Sci Fi Month mini-event round Easter next Spring. I just couldn’t do more than what I was able to give to the event already.

      Back on topic though! lol I love books with holiday flair myself – that’s why I like to open my blog to hosting showcases for #blogmas as its the one time of the year I can relax a bit, shine a light on some authors and find #newtomeauthors for my own readerly joy, too! You’ll find some journalled Christmassy memories on those posts or reveals about what I’ve been binge watching lately,… each top anchour I tried to tie into the book or where I was in December to add a more personalised touch as you know I don’t host traditional spotlights on my blog! (smirks) Those posts I’ve linked in this comment are some of my top favourites – along with the “Meet the SF Reader” and “Book Spine Poetry” I shared on this lovely for #SciFiMonth.

      You’ll have to clue me into your top posts to read as December starts to release into January.

      Ooh… I am so happy to know this!! I don’t oft find people who love “White Christmas!” We’re seeing it again this year, along with “It’s A Wonderful Life” (you would like my pinned tweet on Twitter right now!) along with a childhood favourite I found via Hoopla (as a regional library has this now!) which is “Babes in Toyland” starring Drew Barrymore!! We’re also seeing a family favourite from Hallmark Channel “The Christmas Card” and we might see a few extras, too. We love the films which are everygreen and timeless… the ones you never tire of seeing or of hearing the message of their hearts revealled.

      I hope this Christmas week you’ve had a wonderful entrance into the holiday season. Wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas and a wonderfully lovely New Year full of blessings and joy. Here’s to reading each others’ blogs in 2021 and I promise to sort out how to leave you more notes on your blog!! Again thanks for being one of my favourite Jorie Loves A Story readers… your kindness has been a balm in the chaos.
