ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

For more than a decade, Sandra D. Bricker lived in Los Angeles. While honing her chosen craft of screenwriting in every spare moment, she worked as a personal assistant and publicist to some of daytime television’s hottest stars. When her mother became ill in Florida, she walked away from that segment of her life and moved across the country to take on a new role: Caregiver.

The author says that it was her 8th novel that opened the door to finding her way as a writer. “I’m a Christian woman, first and foremost,” she says. “So it was a bit of a dream-come-true when Summerside Press chose me as one of two authors to launch the Love Finds You line.”

Sandie’s real-life role as cancer survivor has parlayed into her steadfast commitment to raising awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research. Spearheading a series of devotionals for Summerside Press (such as the popular His Grace is Sufficient…Decaf is Not), the author has stipulated that a portion of each contributor’s proceeds will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

“Being allowed to combine my faith and my humor with raising funds for my pet projects … and still pursue my writing dream,” says Bricker, “well, that’s the best of all worlds, as far as I’m concerned!”

And one of the author’s pet projects is animal rescue, evidenced by the special bond she has created with one particular formerly-abandoned puppy — a red-haired collie with “killer brown eyes and the heart of the class clown.”

ABOUT THE BOOK

A Merry Humbug Christmas features two holiday romance novellas from hilarious and heartwarming author Sandra D. Bricker. — the perfect gift to yourself or someone else at this most wonderfully stressful time of year.

In “Once Upon a Jingle Bell,” A Bah! Humbug cruise to the Mexican Riviera is Joss Snow’s answer to this year’s quest to avoid the holidays completely; at least until she’s rebooked on a different kind of cruise altogether. Candy canes, holly wreaths, reindeer and ornaments seem to be stalking her on the 12 Days of Christmas holiday cruise extravaganza. An escape back to land is her only goal . . . until she meets a kindred spirit in rugged Irishman Patrick Brenneman, and then the game is on! Avoid Christmas festivities at all costs . . . except maybe for that one stop under the mistletoe.

In “It Came Upon a Midnight Deer,” Reese’s guilt over abandoning best friend Joss on their holiday tradition of avoiding all things Christmas is trumped by the joy of her recent engagement. Meeting Damian’s family for the first time on idyllic Sugarloaf Mountain is about as far from that Bah! Humbug cruise as she can get, and Reese can hardly wait to get there. But from the moment they hit that deer in the road just two miles from the cabin, everything seems to go wrong. There are no drummers drumming or pipers piping this particular year! And once she sets her future in-laws’ family cabin ablaze, she’s pretty sure there won’t be even ONE golden ring in her future.

My Thoughts:

i LOVED this book i knew i would because its from sandra. i have never read a bad book from her at all. the writing is humorous and keeps you coming back for more and more and more. i wish there was a bit more to come back to in this book. i was so sad it was over. this has two seperate stories in it but they do overlap with two main girl characters and they have a seperate christmas holiday. so it follows both of them and they come together at the end. its a really amazing novel. i can’t say much more about it because it was just so good that it left me speechless.

thanks to cfba and B&H for the copy of the book for review. i wasn’t compensated in any way.

Fine, high-grade blades and an anti-slip grip handle allow you to control removal with ease. They work by softly (and painlessly) removing any excess hair above or below your arches – ideal for trimming brows and any facial hair. Use it in gentle, deft motions for the best results, and always run it over dry skin with just a small amount of oil. Try to use it more as a ‘trimmer’ than a shaver – you don’t want to use it to reshape, just to refine. An eyebrow setting gel is essential if you want to lock in your look after you’ve applied your brow cosmetics. Finding a premium clear brow gel is easy because we’ve done our best to create the perfect formula for you! Brow gel is a great finishing product to use if you already have brows that are dark and well-defined, as this will make the most of your natural features. It will keep your eyebrows in place all day, but it won’t alter the colour or shape of your eyebrows in any way. It’s kind of like using hairspray on your eyebrows. The one offered by BrowGal is an excellent selection. Check out the eyebrow tattoo page, which contains all the information you could possibly need close to you.
