Sheila Roberts, “the premier purveyor of small-town, feel-good romance,” (Booklist) returns to Leavenworth with two brand-new novels, perfect for Christmas. Sheila is joined by her husband Gerhardt, sharing his WWII page-turner in a duo book-signing Saturday October 9 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at A Book For All Seasons. In A Little Christmas Spirit, single mom Lexie Bell hopes to make this first Christmas in their new home special for her six-year-old son, Brock. Festive lights and homemade fudge, check. Friendly neighbors? Uh, no. The reclusive widower next door is more grinchy than nice. But maybe he just needs a reminder of what matters most... The best Christmas gifts--family, friendship and second chances--are all waiting to be unwrapped in this sparkling new novel from bestselling Sheila Roberts. One Charmed Christmas heads out on a Christmas cruise. Join two best friends on this delightful, unexpected adventure packed with hope, love and humor. Gerhardt Roberts’ WW2 page-turner, Safe Harbor, is set in World War II Berlin, where Jews such as Erich Reinhold, who can pass for Aryan, and his sweetheart, Nessa Baumgartner, go underground. In a city where Jewish life is being snuffed out, they soon find themselves in a world of false identification papers and forged ration cards, risking their lives to help others escape to freedom. Danger is everywhere and love seems a luxury they can’t afford. Will they find their safe harbor? "[Safe Harbor] should be a must read for all. It deserves a place on high school reading lists and would make an excellent book for discussion groups.” - Fresh Fiction.
