A Sleepy Hollow Kiss
Vivien Mayfair, author
Everybody’s getting ready for Halloween in Snowdrop Valley, especially the College of Literary Arts, where horror literature is taken very seriously. Pay a visit to the sleepy little book town where coffee shops serve hot caramel apple cider, bookstores display chilling horror reads, and BnBs turn front porches into cornucopia wonderlands. Headstrong Lane Sharp survived a traumatic childhood event lost in the woods over Halloween week during the Salem Witch Festival. Only to find herself still shaking ghosts as an adult, she is determined to never be alone, even if it means keeping her brother out of a special school in Boston. When her boss at the college demands she host gothic literature week for visiting students. Lane becomes saddled with a literary consultant to help her design the event and create new horror curriculum despite her pet peeve for the genre. What she wasn’t prepared for was an irresistible know-it-all with an adorable twang and lonely little girl to turn her life upside down. For Southern Georgia boy and horror expert Miles Hall, the offer for a consulting gig in a famous book town was too good to pass up. He heard all about how their homely women book-loving types were happy to start a family, and a family is exactly what he needed for his motherless daughter. Burned by his first love, he vowed never to open his heart again. A platonic relationship and small community life were all that he required. But when he arrived in Snowdrop Valley, he didn’t expect a stubborn and beautiful blond with a sassy mouth and old fears to unlock his frozen heart. An enchanting holiday romance that pulls readers into the nostalgic clutches of a forgotten holiday. A Sleepy Hollow Kiss will make you want to light candles, turn out the lights, and cozy up with a warm blanket and bowl of candy corn as a fresh take on Halloween, where books override ghouls and old fears disappear in the arms of sweet new love.
