ABOUT CROSS COUNTRY CHRISTMAS:

With the holiday season upon her, Jamie Foster is once again stressed about making her yearly visit back home to Woodfalls, still single. Fate intervenes in the form of Grant Johnson, a boy she grew up with, who catches the same flight while returning home from a business trip.

When a malfunction sends their plane crashing down on the runway upon takeoff, Jamie and Grant decide to rent a car and make the nine-hundred-mile drive home together. Ironically for them, anything that can go wrong does as they face one hysterical hurdle after another.

Christmas may finally bring Jamie the gift of love she has always wanted if she and Grant can manage to overcome a few obstacles along the way. Ho-ho-ho!

My Review:

This is a great read. I loved reading No Attachments, so it was great to read about Jamie and Grant when Jamie was introduced as a cousin in No Attachments. Its a great novella that left me wanting more Grant, and throw in Christmas - oh so good. I give it 5 stars. 

I will say it did seem a bit unreal to have the "bad" luck that Jamie and Grant experienced but it worked for the story line. Jamie is so strong and driven, and then you have Grant (hottie) who makes her laugh- well she also brings that on herself too.

Tiffany is a great writer, and Cross Country Christmas is a great read. I recommend this book.

*** TEASER ***

(The below teaser is unedited and subject to change)</ address>
Dear Emily,
How do I start off a letter to a child I have yet to meet?
A child that has always been in our hearts?
A child that is meant for our family?
Your Daddy and I cannot wait for the moment we are able to hold you in our arms for the first time. To lay our eyes on your perfect face, eyes, toes. To breathe in the essence of a new baby, swirling scents of powder and linen.
We cannot wait to feel your beating heart against our chests and to listen to your slow and steady breaths.</ address>
To hear your soft baby noises.
To soothe your crying.</ address>
We have always dreamed of you, Emily. We’ve dreamed that someday our family would be blessed with a child.
We are now so close to realizing this dream. Our new family is within reach.
So very close.
We are now hoping, waiting, praying.
Love and kisses,
Momma & Daddy</ address>
My eyes are glistening with tears as I scrawl my signature at the bottom of the letter, touch my fingers to my lips, press them onto her name and close my journal. I look over to my left where Kyle is softly snoring, sleeping soundly. I mouth the words “I love you” to him, touch his back lightly, put my journal in my night table drawer and turn out the soft light by my bedside. I curl my body into his, tuck my head into his chest and hold on tight.
I love this man with all that I am and I love the father that he is going to be.
My heart is full of promise and hope.

Eva Talbot comes to Malta to finish her doctoral dissertation in Psychiatry.  When she meets Luca, there is a very real and instant attraction that she has never felt before. But even still, she senses the darkness that lives within him.   

In part one of this Romantic Thriller, Of Blood and Bone, Eva is hired to care for Luca’s mother, a woman who suffers from dementia.  It is Luca, however, that Eva will eventually risk everything to save.  But by the end of part one, Eva doesn’t know if she can save Luca without losing herself.

And now my interview with Jonah:
 
Simply Sarah's Corner: Hi Jonah!
Jonah: Hey Sarah.
SSC: I’m so excited that I get to interview you.
J: (scratches back of neck, looks a little uncomfortable) Thanks?
 SSC: I wanted to start with a few hard questions…
 (looks a little more uncomfortable)
1.       Being an Emotional, what is the easiest or hardest part to deal with?
 When I was little, it was dealing with constantly being barraged by everyone’s emotions. I’ve learned to tune most of it out, like white noise, so I can focus on specifics. Obviously, it’s hard having to deal with people’s pain, or—worse yet—be the cause of it. I have to constantly remind myself of the end game.
2.       When your mom died could you feel her emotions?
(is quiet for a long moment). Um, yeah. Outside of the excruciating pain she was in, I also felt her terror and sadness. She was afraid to leave us.
 3.       So, you’re Connected to your twin Kellan and your soul mate Chloe; is it hard with two Connections? Who do you feel more loyalty to?
It only makes sense, right? These two are the most important people in my life. I’d lay my life down for either of them. So . . . to constantly feel torn between them is tough. As for loyalty . . . I don’t know if I can answer that. The Connections between us are different, you know? The one with Kel, well . . . we actually started as a single entity. He’s my other half. I don’t function right without him. The one with Chloe . . . I mean, I love her. How does one pick between the two people they love most? I don’t think it can be done.
4.       You first met Chloe in your dreams, why do you think you stopped seeing her in your dreams?
Kiah, a Dreamer I know, actually explained this to me once. She said that doorways between dreams are unstable and function only for a certain span of time. Everyone with a Connection who has one loses it eventually. The same happened between Karl and Moira, too.
5.       What is your happiest memory of you and Chloe?
I don’t . . . (considers this). I don’t know if I can pick just one. Maybe the time she found her Connection ring? Things seemed so right for us that night.
6.       Even though you and Chloe are Connected, why do you think you are a better choice for Chloe than Kellan?
 
History. She and I, we have history. That’s hard to ignore.
7.       It seems you and Kellan can be a little bit competitive. Who is the better surfer: you or Kellen?
 
(laughs under his breath) Honestly? Me. And he’d tell you that, too. But he’s way better at being able to teach it to anyone.
8.       Where do you see yourself in a year from now?
Working for the Council and making differences in the worlds.
 
 
Ok now some fun questions to get to know you better.
1.       What’s one thing that no one knows about you?
I’m pretty good at tennis.
2.       What do you like to do in your free time other than surfing?
I really like to read. Plus, I’m a big sports fan, so I watch a lot of sports. Also, I’m a runner. I go running everyday.
3.       What’s the one food that you don’t ever want to live without?
Huh. Probably . . . salt and vinegar chips. Chloe hates them, so I never have to share, which is nice!
4.       What do you love most about Chloe?
Her heart. She cares deeply, and that’s beautiful to me.
 
Thank you so much Jonah for taking the time to answer my questions!
Thanks for having me, Sarah!
