Contemporary Romance/Holiday-Christmas/Novella



A sweet romance novella about the healing power of love. Laurel, a retire army veteran, travels to a remote cabin in the Smoky Mountains to heal from her painful war experiences. She wants no part of the Christmas joy that she used to enjoy. Can the handsome woodman in a nearby cabin help her to remember the magic of Christmas and the power of love?






This is a beautiful story of two wounded souls and their journey back to finding peace. Has wonderful characters, especially Duck the dog. It is a very well written, clean romance of overcoming pain, healing physically and mentally, and finding joy and the meaning of Christmas. One of the sweetest moments (Duke gets most of them) is the Christmas tree for the animals. Very nice quick read. I bought this in 2016 and kept hearing about it again this year. So glad I gave it a try.

Review by Comfy Chair Books/Lisa Reigel (December 3, 2018)



BUSHLet me tell you a story! I love to write. My books are filled with characters that are near and dear to my heart, and my supreme wish is that you will feel the same way after you read about them.

My romantic mysteries contain an exciting array of love stories, different ages, different locations, even a few taking place in a different time. They are sweet romances, which means that even though those great feelings of attraction and passion as love builds between two people flow through my stories, you will not find any graphic descriptions of sexual interludes (and no graphic violence either, for that matter)on the page.

The list here includes short stories as well, a fun way to enjoy a romance when time is short.

New to the list are my new novels for middle grade students (grade 4-5-6), a series of touching and fun stories beginning with “Isabel the Invisible” in the series called “The Kids of Room 6A”, and a soon to appear mystery and adventure series set in 1890 Montana. Stay tuned!

I’m a teacher and family therapist as well as a writer. I truly believe that love, in all its forms, is what makes life worthwhile, and that is a lot of the motivation that keeps me writing. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I love to hear from readers. Contact me at
