Featured book: Two Reservations for Christmas (Luna Lake Cabins Stories Book 7)
For centuries, Luna Lake and its surrounding natural beauty have been a source of comfort to those who have made their way to its shore. Now, Sean Adams and Liz Chambers have each returned to the cabins they knew as children, both seeking to escape painful memories from their pasts.
Three oranges, a puzzle, and a sharing of confidences result in a bond of friendship between the two, but Christmas isn’t about friendship or escape. It’s about love and all of its promise. Together, can they find their way to the paths forward they seek?
In her Luna Lake Cabins novel Two Reservations for Christmas, internationally beloved, From Women’s Pens author and publisher Annie Acorn once again weaves a warm-hearted tale of strength and survival, filled with the southern charm and Christmas spirit for which she is known.
Some stories are born classics, destined to be experienced over and over again. You don’t want to miss this one!
A few minutes later, the owner of Luna Lake Cabins hit the Save icon on the Reservations page before him and let out a chuckle, as he admired the view across the kitchen presented by his wife, who was removing a sheet of homemade chocolate chip cookies from the oven.
“What?” She glanced his way, once she had set the hot tray on the stovetop.
“You know how I am about single reservations that are made one right after the other – one by a man and one by a woman.” He sent her a grin as he counted off on his fingers. “Two young people, both familiar with the area, one male, one female, male sounding a bit lost, female stating she has some serious thinking to do.”
“And from this you infer that these supposed strangers are both looking for love and are perfect for each other.” She crossed the room, pleased when he reached out and pulled her onto his lap.
“No, to this I add on the fact that both of them will be spending the next four days as the only guests at the Cabins and they’re bound to run into each other.” He bent his head and nuzzled her neck.
“Which, of course, means they will both experience immediate connections, one with the other.” She kept their banter going. “What an incurable romantic you are.”
“Maybe not immediate connections,” he admitted, before he dropped a light kiss just beneath her left ear. “But they obviously have at least some things in common, because they’re both coming here on what most folks would consider a family weekend.”
“True.” She straightened. “We’ll have more than enough. Do you think we should ask them to join us for Thanksgiving dinner?”
“Definitely not.” His face filled with a shocked look that belied the twinkle in his eyes. “The male sounds as if he could work his way quite easily through two of your delectable pies at a single sitting, and I’m not that willing to share. Besides, if I’m right and Fate has brought them both here at this time for a reason, then I think they’ll be better served by our leaving them to the lake’s magic.”
“It was good enough for us.” She met his gaze, her eyes filled with love.
“A sentiment with which I wholeheartedly agree.” He sent her a soft look before, this time, his lips found hers as he drew her closer and then proceeded to kiss her thoroughly.
