A Hickory Ridge Christmas

This Contest Is Now Closed.

Thanks to all who entered, we’ll be announcing the winner soon.

Don’t you love an old-fashioned Christmas? Good food, simple gifts, and carols shared with family and friends  spell Christmas to me. I’ve just finished writing EVERY PERFECT GIFT, the last of the Hickory Ridge novels which ends with a marriage proposal in church on Christmas Eve. Is there anything more romantic? To celebrate finishing the last book and to introduce new readers to the Hickory Ridge series,  I’m giving away the basket pictured below.

What’s in it: The 2011 edition of Christmas with Southern Living, featuring recipes, table settings, entertaining tips and more, to help you celebrate Southern style.  All Is Calm, the gorgeous new CD of Christmas hymns by the incomparable pianist  Jim Brickman.  A signed copy of the first Hickory Ridge novel, Beyond All Measure. The winner will also be one of the first to receive a signed copy of the second novel, Beauty For Ashes when it releases in March of 2012.  A $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble. A jar of old- fashioned Christmas peppermints. A Victorian-style perfume bottle from Victoria’s Jewelry Box. And a pair of silver candles to light your Christmas table.
