"A Case for Calamity" is the holiday story from Mackenzie Crowne for the 8th Day of Christmas

I'm really excited for the 8th Day of Christmas today, because this Twelve Brides of Christmas book, called "A Case for Calamity" has a premise I love--switching identities with someone else. Because who doesn't dream of doing that every once in a while? Welcome, Mackenzie! First can you tell us about your book, then, let's have some fun! I understand you have a giveaway??? After your blurb, choose a random question you've never been asked before on a blog...then answer it. :)

For Jane Whitmore, agreeing to switch identities with her best friend seems like innocent fun, but spending a romantic night in Paris with a man who doesn't know her real name turns out to be a lark gone bad. When their one night of passion proves to have lasting results, tracking down Gabe Sutton and telling him he’s about to be the father of her child is just another calamity Jane would rather avoid. After years of avoiding long-term romantic entanglements, Gabe has found a woman he might just be able to build a life with, only to have her disappear. When he finally finds her, his belief in happily-ever-after staggers under the weight of deception, and looming fatherhood leaves him with two choices: fight her for custody of his future child or cling to the promise of true love.

“He doesn’t even know my name. What am I supposed to do? Walk up to him and say, ‘Hi Gabe. I’m the chick who tricked you into believing I was Michael Austin’s daughter two months ago in Paris. Oh, and by the way, I’m having your baby?’”
“I was thinking more along the lines of, ‘Hi, Gabe. I’m the chick who snuck out of your hotel room in Paris before you could say Good morning, beautiful. By the way, I had a really good time—and six orgasms. Oh, and I’m having your baby. Want to get a pizza?’”
Jane laughed at Shae’s cheeky grin, then shoved her fingers through her hair. “Right. That’ll work.”
“I googled him. You’re right. He’s hawt! He left his number that morning in Paris.” She smiled slyly. “It’s in my phone. You should call him.”
Jane snorted. “I don’t think giving Gabe Sutton a booty call would be a good idea. Besides, I’m on a sabbatical from men.”
Shae waggled her brows. “What’s that old saying? When you fall off a horse, you need to climb right back on?”

Mac’s Question: Solid lights or colors?

I prefer solid white lights these days but we simply had to have colors when my boys were little. They proclaimed solid light trees boring. 

Giveaway: I’ll be gifting an e-copy of one of my TWRP titles to three separate winners chosen randomly from all commenters. Winners’ choice.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting me today, sweetie. You're a doll!

    1. My pleasure! So glad to have you as a guest today. And for the record, we currently do clear lights...but I'm feeling nostalgic for colored ones, so there may need to be a change when things go on clearance this year!! :)
