Collecting hearts helped Sara to keep from losing hope.
Sara stared at the heart-shaped stone. She scooped it up and placed it in her pocket to put in her treasured collection. This kind of hearts couldn’t be broken. Not like hers had been shattered after losing her husband.
Fear rules her heart now. Fear of loss. Of more brokenness. Yes, the little stone hearts are safe.
Daniel stared at the old note he’d found cleaning his desk. Long ago, his childhood sweetheart had made a list of what she expected in a husband. He crumpled the paper. Years ago, he’d set out to meet those requirements only to lose Sara to another man. One who met none of her expectations!
Now she’s back in town, broken and in need of help, along with her pre-teen son.
Daniel turned his thoughts away from her.
She’d broken his heart once before.
He wouldn’t let it happen again.
Is love strong enough to mend broken hearts?
A story of second chances rising from the ashes of fear and loss.

Okay, so I admit it. I cringe and whine outwardly when the Christmas decorations start to show up in the department stores, but inwardly, my heart gives a little cheer.
Yes! It says, We can start digging out the tree soon. In just six more weeks. Tops. Of course, Mr. Castle prefers to wait until after Thanksgiving.
But maybe if we just bring out the decorations and wait on the tree. A few snow-globes mixed in with the fall foliage, right? We can get away with at least that.... right? I try to stay strong and tell my excited little heart no, we need to wait.
But still, that desire remains, and an eagerness for Christmas carols and glittering lights grows with each falling leaf and cold morning. Can I get an AMEN here?
I know some folks think rushing the season is silly. But is it really rushing it, or extending it? Or, spreading it out?
Ha! I feel like I'm grasping for straws here. LOL!
So here's the thing, I put up my Christmas story early. I tried to be good and wait, but...

My Madison Creek novella- Secretly in Love is free today and tomorrow. (Nov. 29-30)
Sage Dolan glanced at Nikolai Prater and inwardly whined that she’d made the pact in high school with him and her BFF, Moi Tamsyn, that the three of them would be friends forever. Nothing but friends. Yet, when Nikolai returned from the mission trip last year, Sage’s feelings for him exploded and her pact gets harder to keep.
Then on April fool’s day, she receives a letter from a secret admirer. A joke from her twin siblings.
Nikolai’s life changed after the mission trip. One thing he has to face is his feelings for Sage. Pact or no pact, he needs to let her know how he feels. Overhearing Sage and Moi talk about how they wished they received real love letters, Nikolai comes up with the perfect solution. He sends her an anonymous love letter, but instead of love, he reaps the wild, whirlwind of Sage who is already angry about being made a fool of once and won’t stand for being the fool twice.
