But when someone tries to kill them, Jasmine confesses she’s in witness protection.

Christmas in July Reader Giveaway

Happy Christmas in July! Welcome to the 9th blog in this Christmas in July Reader Giveaway, which runs July 12-23, 2021.


At the bottom of each author's blog post, you will find the secret words. Write them all down and provide the entire answer on this Google form. To start at the beginning with blog #1, go here

NOTE: You must grab all the secret words from every author in the Christmas in July Reader Giveaway to be eligible to win a $400 Amazon gift card. At the end of this blog post is a link to the next blog, and so on, to the final blog post. At each stop, the author will also give away a copy or copies of their featured Christmas book. 

Isn't this a fun way of celebrating Christmas in July? I don't know about you but I'm ready for December. The weather here in the Pacific Northwest has been unusually hot. We're headed into fire season and I'm hoping it won't be a bad year. Last year, all across the country, fires ravaged our forests and tree farms.  Tree farms just like the one my heroine in Murder Under the Mistletoe owns and operates.  I enjoyed learning about Christmas tree farming while writing this book almost as much as I enjoy visiting Christmas tree farms to pick out the perfect tree, drink some hot chocolate and maybe, if there's snow, have a snowball fight.   

Tell me a Christmas Tradition you enjoy in the comments.

I'll be giving away a copy of Murder Under the Mistletoe!


DEA agent Tyler Griffin must stop a drug cartel that's using an Idaho Christmas tree farm to smuggle narcotics across the Canadian border. But to do his job, Tyler needs the cooperation of farm owner and widowed mother Heather Larson-Randall—whose informant brother died on Tyler's watch. Tyler knows a crucial piece of evidence is hidden somewhere on the property. But getting the protective mother to trust him is the hardest part of his mission. As threats against Heather mount, he vows to keep her and her child safe…and clear the farm of danger before Christmas. 

This is part of my series: Northern Border Patrol: Keeping the US-Canadian border safe...

Danger at the Border 

Joint Investigation

Murder Under the Mistletoe

Identity Unknown


Drum roll: Now, its time for the secret words: THE UNWANTED,

Save the secret words, and when you reach the final blog, enter all the secret words on this form for a chance to win a $400 Amazon gift card!

Thank you so much for visiting! The next author on the tour is Anne Greene and her Christmas book Love at Christmas. You can find her blog at this link . Remember, this Christmas in July Reader Giveaway will end on July 23 at 8 PM EST!

On her way to question US marshal Emmett Gage about a DNA match that implicates his relative in a cold case and a recent murder, Officer Belle Montera’s attacked. Now she and her K-9 partner must team up with Emmett to find his cousin and the person after Belle. But can they figure out who’s targeting her without becoming murder victims themselves?

Explosive Situation by Terri Reed

Detective Henry Roarke’s determined to prove his innocence to internal affairs officer Olivia Vance—but first he must survive the bomber targeting him and his bomb-sniffing K-9, Cody. With a coming baby to protect and an investigation to pursue, Olivia has her hands full…until she becomes a target, as well. Can they catch the bomber before they all lose their lives?

    Gratitude makes the difference!

    I've been remiss in not posting since the new year began. Life has been a rollercoaster ride. But even amidst the chaos, I choose to be grateful.  I turned in a book last week, I have a book coming out in April, my family is healthy and God is good.
