Now, it’s time to for my Christmas song title: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

This two in one volume is a special treat! 

My book Murder Under the Mistletoe is book three in my Northern Border Patrol series, featuring the men and women of a special task force on a mission to protect the US and Canadian border. I really enjoyed writing this series and this book. It was fun to use a Christmas tree farm as the backdrop for a mystery and a romance. In preparation for this book, I visited a tree farm for some behind the scenes look at how a tree farm operates. I also had the tree farm in Murder Under the Mistletoe have a Christmas village like the one I used to take my children to when they were young. It brought back many memories of Christmases past. 


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 second book in this volume is Maggie K. Black’s book 

Christmas Blackout. 


When Benjamin Duff stops at his friend Piper Lawrence’s bed-and-breakfast to say goodbye before moving across the world, he finds a masked man attacking her. Rushing to save her, Benjamin crashes his truck, trapping them during a winter storm.
