The Inn at Blue Hollow Falls ~ Amazon GIVEAWAY!! ~ Thru November 15, 2017

GREAT NEWS!

Amazon is giving away 10 copies of my brand, spankin’ new e-novella, THE INN AT BLUE HOLLOW FALLS! 

I know!! Want in? Click here to enter: Amazon Giveaway 

This is Book #1.5 in my Blue Hollow Falls series (officially ON SALE NOW!) and the reviews so far have beens truly gratifying.

Here’s what Robinson Reviews had to say:
4bd4917e-483d-4c8c-b8c6-365f23d07c80
5 – “It’s perfect for me…” Stars!

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.
We met Inn-Keeper Noah and Botanist Stevie in the first book in that they were both close friends of Sunny and Sawyer, so it was great to go back to Virginia, and reconnect with everyone while the snow is falling and Christmas magic is in the air.

“Christmas is just another day to me. And I’m okay with that.”

Being snowed in at the Inn, and thrown together by circumstance gave the romance side of their story a little ‘insta’ injection, but I didn’t mind, the author took me too my reading happy place, with the perfect setting, likeable characters and a happily ever after that will have you sighing into your peppermint candy cane hot chocolate.

“I think this is that thing worth fighting for… And I want to do it right. From the start.”

Short, sweet, and sooo satisfying, you will want to add this standalone novella to your Christmas reading wish-list.

“You’ve got yourself a Christmas convert.”

Seth is up next with Bluestone & Vine due for release in June 18, I cannot wait to get back to this series and the characters it has given me.”
~ Claire Robinson, Robinson Reviews

Inn at Blue Hollow Falls full size

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!
