Notes from Melissa
SO BUSY! Birthdays galore this month…so we are busy every weekend and I can’t even properly focus on Christmas yet! Hopefully as you read this I am finally looking ahead to Christmas. I have almost all my gifts purchased…just need to wrap, wrap, wrap!
I have been reading mostly Christmas novellas and short stories as I am so short on time and I am loving them. So much so that I want to share the joy of one of my favorite holiday series: The Klaus Brothers by Penny Watson. This series is so funny and has 5 swoon worthy brothers that generate a lot of heat! You’ll want to curl up with them so go to my Instagram account and enter to win!!
