The Heart of Christmas (Whiskey Creek #7) by Brenda Novak New Release and Review

The Heart of Christmas 
(Whiskey Creek #7)

by Brenda Novak 

New Release and Review

Just call her Christmas Eve… 
Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn't have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages, and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised, suddenly seem…confining.
Eve's worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband�until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve's definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve's happily ever after�just when it finally seems within reach. And just when she's counting on the best Christmas of her life!

 All it took was one night of getting drunk... and just like that her life was changed forever. So out of character for Eve! She never does anything but what is appropriate. She is a well mannered lady who is just turning thirty-five years old ... and single! A girl has her limits, after all. All her friends are married or in relationships; her best friend is pregnant; and Eve has had the worse luck where the love aspect of her life is involved.

From the moment I started reading this book I knew I was going to enjoy it. As Eve wakes up hungover, she realizes there is a man in her bed and she has no immediate recollection of who he is and what transpired to bring this man into her bed. What is in a name after all? Before the week is out, her male companion will go from Jared to Brent to... I won't give it away!

Mystery and suspense are mixed in this cocktail of a romantic thriller. Lives hang on the line and the threat is very real. These two characters are drawn to each other by an unknown force and emotions neither has ever felt before.

In true Brenda Novak fashion, this Whiskey Creek romance is enticing and full of the characters we love. Once again, friends band together to protect each other and insure the strength of their bond remains true.

About the Author
It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”

However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a creative bone in her body. In school, math and science were her best subjects, and when it came time to pick a major in college, she chose business.

Abandoning her academic scholarship to Brigham Young University at the age of 20 in order to get married and start a family, Brenda dabbled in commercial real estate, then became a loan officer.

“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda admits. “I learned how to write by reading what others have written. The best advice for any would-be author: read, read, read….”

Brenda sold her first book, and the rest is history. Many of her novels have won or placed in contests such as the National Reader's Choice, the Bookseller's Best, the Write Touch, the Award of Excellence and the Beacon Award for Published Authors.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are the proud parents of five children—three girls and two boys. She juggles her writing career with her children’s softball and soccer games, field trips, carpool runs and homework sessions.

When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually working on her annual fundraiser for diabetes research—an on-line auction held at her website May 1st – May 31st. Her youngest son, Thad, has diabetes, and Brenda is determined to help him and others like him. She also enjoys traveling, watching sporting events and biking--she rides an amazing 20 miles every day!
