Award-winning author Eva Marie Everson wraps up a Christmas story of hope, love, and forgiveness just in time for the holidays.

The Ornament Keeper, a contemporary Christmas novella, features Felicia and Jackson Morgan who are spending their first Christmas apart after twenty years of marriage.

I pushed the Keurig lever down on a decaf dark roast pod. “I’ve made a decision,” I said, hoping my voice sounded as sure as I wanted it to. Because I had. More or less. Sort of.

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Rebecca’s Legacy” by Betty Thomason Owens:

    “Are you crazy? My father’s going to kill me.”


  2. I’m featuring lines from A.K. MacBride’s upcoming release Shattered on my blog.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Rachael Brownell’s Chasing Fate. It’s my quirky blind date with a book this month.

    ”What do you mean, you quit your job?”

    Happy Reading!


  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden.


    Baltimore, Maryland, 1867

    “Come on, boy. Your dad needs you.”


  4. Happy Friday!😊

    My first lines come from Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane by JoAnn Ross…..

    Life, as Aiden Mannion knew firsthand, could be dangerous. Anything could happen. You could be hit by a taxi while sightseeing in Times Square. Run headfirst into a tree while shushing down a diamond run pretending you were Bode Miller.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Fall!💕


  5. My first line is from A Secret to Die For by Lisa Harris:

    A sharp clatter jerked Grace Callahan out iof the novel she was reading.

    Great suspenseful book!
