Winter Countdown Blitz Day 3

USA Today Bestselling author Melissa McClone has written over forty-five novels. 

With a degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University, she worked for a major airline where she traveled the globe and met her husband. But analyzing jet engine performance couldn't compete with her love of writing happily ever afters. 

Melissa lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, three children, a spoiled Norwegian Elkhound, and cats who think they rule the house. They do! 

One beach cottage, two strangers, and a kiss under the mistletoe that changes everything…

Sheridan DeMarco wants to be anywhere but home for the holidays. She’s happy to spend Christmas house-sitting in South Carolina, far away from her parents’ new blended families. Too bad when she arrives at the charming beach cottage, she isn’t as blissfully alone as she planned.

Michael ""Mikey"" Patterson needs to stay out of sight until his attorney gives him the all clear. He finds the perfect place in a small coastal town, but there’s a problem. Mikey isn’t the only one staying at the beach house, and his surprise roommate pushes all his buttons.

A sprig of mistletoe and one memorable kiss make Sheridan and Mikey forget their plans to stay away from each other. But when family gets in the way, will their happily ever after get tossed out along with the discarded wrapping paper and tinsel? 


Author Interview:

1. What is your favorite Wintertime Activity?   I love to ski. There's nothing like spending a day on the slopes and then warming up in the lodge with a mug of hot cocoa and lots of whipped cream.

2. How many unpublishes / half-finished books do you have in progress? I have two. They will be out in 2021.

3. What was the most surprising thing you learned when creating your book (in research or in yourself?)  I learned that there's an entire industry of professionals who work with lottery winners, and that you need to be smart if you ever win a large sum of money.

4. Tell us about the greatest Christmas gift you ever received.  My best friend and her husband gave us an engraved frame as a gift on our first Christmas together. We have a photo from that day in it, and I have it displayed in my office.

5. What did you edit out of your book? (Such as a cut scene or an idea that just wouldn't fit?)  I had planned to make the hero's lottery win the big black moment, but it didn't work out the way I thought it would. 

6. What inspired you to write this novel? It's part of a multi-author world series that I've written three other books for. I had the unmarried brother of the last book's heroine that I wanted to write about, so I brought in a character from a new series to link them together.
