Coming this fall from Beth Ciotta (author of the Cupcake Lovers), a new contemporary series—Impossible Dream—celebrating hope, love, and the magic of the human spirit!
Five long-time girlfriends—known as The Inseparables—find themselves in their thirties and battling disillusion. Tangled up in real-life troubles and stifled aspirations, they’re ready to ditch their deepest desires …until they stumble upon the peculiar matchmaking company, “Impossible Dream,” where they each find the rare opportunity to make seemingly impossible dreams come true.
‘Tis the season for miracles, second chances, and love in a holiday novella that will charm and inspire. Enchanting Christmas, the second tale in Beth Ciotta’s modern day fairy tale series—Impossible Dream—celebrating hope, love, and the magic of the human spirit!
Once upon a time, Christmas (Chrissy) Mooney believed she’d make a difference in the world as a concert violinist. Music was her love, and the reason she indulged in a whirlwind affair with a handsome stranger—a gifted guitarist who declared them soul mates when they parted. She never imagined he’d turn his back on her when, two months later, she tracked him down to tell him she was pregnant. How could she have misjudged him?
Determined to savor the gift of her baby, Chrissy was staggered when she learned her daughter was deaf. Her passion for music was obliterated. How could she enjoy what her daughter would never hear? Obsessed with creating a happy life for her girl, Chrissy ultimately lost her own sense of bliss—never realizing her growing cynicism until she reads her daughter’s letter to Santa.
Now, desperate to rediscover joy, Chrissy applies for help from an internet company—Impossible Dream.com (Making magic since 1956). When Mason suddenly blows back into Chrissy’s life, rocking her with a revelation and a mission of his own, she’s so busy shielding her heart that she’s oblivious to the stirring magic. Until Mason points out the most basic ingredient for happiness… Believing is everything.
If you haven’t seen it already, here’s the cover for book 1 of the Impossible Dream series:
PRINCE CHARMING IS OUT THERE. SOMEWHERE.
Miracles happen every day. Even in Nowhere, Nebraska. That’s Bella Mooney’s philosophy and she’s sticking to it! A children’s librarian who writes fairy tales on the side, Bella has earned the reputation of fanciful Pollyanna. No surprise that she applied for her “ideal man” via ImpossibleDream.com, an Internet company designed to make dreams come true. However, even whimsical Bella has real-life issues, forcing her to take drastic actions in order to spin her dad’s life (and in turn her own) for the better. As fate draws her into the troubling world of her new neighbor—a cynical biker with a scarred soul and checkered past—Bella finds herself falling for the most unlikely man, twisting her perceptions of true love and testing her faith in dreams.
FATE LANDED HIM IN NOWHERE.
Expect nothing. Anticipate the worst. As a detective with the Chicago Police Department, Joe Savage witnessed heinous crimes and acts of cruelty on a daily basis, obliterating his faith in humanity. When a personal vendetta cost him his job and a quirky inheritance offered escape, Joe packed it in and steered his Harley toward a small town bordering Tornado Alley and the Twilight Zone. Where better to lose himself than Nowhere? Resigned to a dark and lonely existence, Joe’s life is suddenly shoved into the sunshine when his eccentric neighbor offers him a chance he can’t refuse, especially after her kiss of hope rekindles his dead heart. Inspired and challenged by Bella’s infectious optimism, Joe dares to make the impossible come true.
