New Holiday, USA novella

The tenth novella in the series is here...

Welcome back to Holiday, USA, small town America, where nothing happens, except holidays... and a little romance, if the hero and heroine trust God.

Secrets? Angela Goodrich owns a few. Moving to Holiday is her dream come true. As Holiday Sweets' new manager, she wants a fresh start even as she wants to share the truth of who she is. Will she still be welcomed?

Anger issues? Caleb Bronson denies it despite the fact he'd like to throttle his EMT partner's new fiancé for wronging his sister. What does it matter if his anger is dominating his life and spills over on the attractive and newest resident of Holiday?

The truth will set you free, if you're willing to endure the discomfort of letting go of the lies. God knows the pain hidden in the soul anyway...

REAL - Reduce stress Exercise Adequate sleep Lower caloric intake

What Navy SEALs are required to do to make it into BUD/S:
Right up front: Never in a million years could I do what is required. However, I needed to start somewhere. Considering how fit the SEALs are, I figured it was a good place to start. So my SEAL puppy reps (SEALp) consist of girls' pushups, crunches, and flutter kicks, a SEAL training basic. I started with doing one of each.  Since my accident I haven't done these, but I'm working to add them back into my routine.

PT ~ Physical therapy
UB ~ Upper body exercises

SEALFit shared some good hints I want to learn and remember:

23: Short walks. PT. UB. Stretch.

24: 2-mile walk. PT. UB. Used 1-lb weights. Stretch.

TBR

69. Operation Soldier Next Door (Cutter's Code series) by Justine Davis is a Suspense romance. I love her books! I know I say it every time I finish another story. This was a wonderfully satisfying read for me. Looking forward to the next one.

70. Bound by a Scandalous Secret (The Scandalous Summerfields) by Diane Gaston Regency romance.

71. A Winter's Knight by Donna Hatch is a Regency romance short story.

72. A Winter's Knight by Elizabeth Cole is a Regency romance short story.

73. Shaken by Tim Tebow was a timely read for me. He cut to the heart of many of my own worries and concerns. As I read, I kept colored pencils and a lead pencil for marking and making notes. I loved it.

It looks like this may be the end of this year's list. I've cut some favorites from my Favorites List and I've added a few. I hope to read more next year.

Follow Up 27 Dec

How'd I do?

All or Nothing is a little closer to being published. Little by little. Back at it today.

Walked and did my physical therapy.

Ate much better.

Enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Kneaders with a dear friend.

Praising God in the storm.

Sigh. Once again attempting to finish All or Nothing. I'm closer.

Exercise

Eat better today than yesterday, which shouldn't be difficult.

Praising God in the storm.

Looking for a Christmas read?

What about last year's novella #8 of the Holiday, USA series?

Welcome back to Holiday, USA, small town America, where nothing happens, except holidays... and a little romance, if the hero and heroine trust God.

Terra Connor is looking forward to her first two-week vacation, even if it means working part of the time to ease her daughter's mind. Her daughter's wedding on Christmas Eve is her only priority, and she definitely doesn't have time for romance.

Carson McDonald is in Holiday for his younger brother's wedding. The friendly town is as good a place as any to rest and recover from the upheaval of losing his job due to an accident. He has enough on his plate for the foreseeable future.

God's ways are not man's ways...
