“Kauffman’s characters are adorably human and so very magnetic.”

“I fell in love with this series hard, with the first book; Blue Hollow Falls delivering everything I want in my contemporary romance reading, and Donna Kauffman blew my Christmas Socks off, with this sweet, seasonal novella.” 5 – “It’s perfect for me…” Stars!
— Claire Robinson, Robinson Reviews

“…a heartwarming love story of two good people finding the perfect match. No drama, no excess baggage from the past – just romance. Well written and left me feeling good. 5 stars.”
Reading in Pajamas

Stevie Franklin is ready to go all-out Grinch on Christmas this year, but a snowy trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains could provide some unexpected gifts…

Stevie is thrilled to help her best friend Sunny launch her new greenhouse business in Blue Hollow Falls. Not only does it give her a chance to visit the quaint location, but it’s a welcome distraction from Stevie’s recent bad luck with men. Just one catch: since Sunny’s home is under renovation, Stevie must stay at the local inn, whose amenities feature hunky innkeeper, Noah Tyler.

Noah may be as tempting as her grandmother’s famous sweet potato pie, but city-girl Stevie isn’t sticking around—and she doesn’t do flings. Yet when Noah’s chef gets stranded in a Christmas Eve snowstorm, Stevie can’t resist pitching in and serving up some of her family’s favorite recipes. The magic of a Blue Ridge Christmas is already rekindling Stevie’s holiday spirit and making her wonder what else she might be missing out on. Now can Noah restore Stevie’s belief in love?

Includes original down-home holiday recipes!

Kirkus Reviews

Library Journal

“Kauffman launches her Blue Hollow Falls series with an endearing tale.”

“Donna Kauffman begins her new Blue Hollow Falls series with some serious style.”
Robinson Reviews, 4.5 – “I wasn’t expecting you…” Stars!

“Blue Hollow Falls is a promising introduction to this series. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more stories set in this Virginia town. If you like contemporary romance rooted in community and connection in the vein of RaeAnne Thayne and Sherryl Woods, I recommend that you add this book to your TBR stack.”
The Romance Dish, 4 Stars!

From her free-spirited mother, Sunny Goodwin learned the value of peace, love, and Jerry Garcia. The inheritance from the father she never knew? That’s a little more complicated . . .

Sunny never expected to find herself owning a centuries old silk mill in the shadow of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains . . . or becoming a half-sister to a ten-year-old named Bailey. Once the shock subsides, she plans to cash in and head back home. But the overgrown greenhouse she finds on the property calls out to the gardener in her, and she senses Bailey’s need for nurturing too . . .

And someone else is making it hard for Sunny to leave: Sawyer Hartwell, an Iraq War hero who wants to make the old mill a creative hub for the artisans of Blue Hollow Falls . . . and wants Sunny to share his vision, and his life. But sexy as this ex-soldier may be, she’s not sure she’s ready to give love a chance . . .
