Christmas Calling - Teaser Tuesday


christmascallingbest cover
Does this cover look familiar? Maybe that's because last week I featured a teaser from the first of two novellas that make up CHRISTMAS CALLING. This week I've selected my Teaser from the second story, Christmas Snow by Birdie L. Etchison. This sweet contemporary romance will put you in the Christmas spirit!

TEASER (from about Page 6):
Her mother decorated anything that stood still. The bathroom had snowflake toilet tissue; snowmen filled every corner of the house. 

Genre: Christian Romance / Fiction
Number of Pages: 156 (both novellas)
Amazon Link: Christmas Calling
More books and stories by Birdie L. Etchison: Birdie's Books

Synopsis:
Janie Montgomery leaves Seattle to escape sad memories and spend Christmas with her aunt in Spokane. On the way her car is stranded in a ditch, surrounded by a mountain of snow. EMT Greg Kincaid comes to her rescue in an SUV, like a knight in snowy armor. It is the beginning of a love story as mystifying as a white-out, as gentle as falling snow, as colorful as Christmas decorations, and as sweet as homemade cookies. Only by the grace of God can Janie and Greg weather the storms and find true love.

Gigi Ann said...

What a cute teaser, it put a smile on my face.

Heather said...

LOL...snowflake toilet tissue would be a bit much. My teaser: The Unsung Hero

Natalie @ Book Lovers Life said...

Haha, it reminds me of my mother in law. Great teaser and thanks for sharing :)

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I've had friends like that too. One even put Christmas sheets on her bed! But I can't say that I've ever seen Christmas toilet paper.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Gigi Ann and Jenn: I smiled when I read that too. Although I don't usually read this genre, I enjoyed both the stories in this novella, especially since one was historical and the other was contemporary.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I agree. That's definitely over the top!
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.

I once visited a home where the proliferation of snowmen reminded me of a scene from Hitchcock's "The Birds." I almost felt threatened!

Alice Audrey said...

That house sounds way too chilly for me. Great teaser, though.

Nise' said...

Sounds like my brother, he is into decorating for holidays. A bit too much for me, but he enjoys it as does is grandkids!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Every time my granddaughter comes over, we discuss the ornaments on the tree (she's 2 1/2). I think she'd like to have Christmas stuff in every room of the house!

Ambrosia said...

Oh, the other novella of the book! Great teaser, very cute! I think it would be fun to be in house so overly decorated for the holidays haha. Thanks for sharing & stopping by Bookmunchies (:

Ellie @ Ellie Reads Ficiton said...

Cute teaser, overdecorating at Christmas can be both funny and annoying! Thanks for stopping by :)

Yvonne said...

I liked thinking about a house decorated for Christmas. Great teaser!

wordsandpeace.com said...

great teaser for the season, thanks! tp snowflakes, that's cool!

Rachel Hoyt said...

Oh my gosh, so cute! That's exactly what I would do! My family isn't as keen on decorating as I am, but we do pretty well. I would most definitely go for the toilet paper. :) Great teaser!!

AmandaEmma Nissen said...

My dad does that too! great teaser and thanks for the visit! ^^

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I wonder where you can get snowflake TP? That would be fun to put in my powder room for a party.

Colleen L. Reece said...

I will ask Birdie, Sandy . . . and see if she knows!

cynthiastacey.com said...

Great teaser! I'm a big fan of decorating everything. Thanks for stopping by my site.

I am very big on seasonal books. Interesting teaser.

anannysliterarymusings said...

Well of course the tissue paper had snowflakes! Great teaser! Sounds like my kind of book! Thanks for stopping by the other day!

Christie - The Fiction Enthusiast said...

Ha ha!! Her mom really gets into the Christmas spirit :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier this week! Sorry it took me so long to visit your teaser :)

littleguardianlexi said...

nice teaser. Those two sentences actually puts me in the Christmas spirit even more. :)

Autumn Hull said...

I love Christmas stories. I used to decorate every inch of my house too, but my littles got into everything too much. I have lots of broken Christmas decorations now. LOL

Colleen L. Reece said...

I checked with Birdie and she doesn't know if or where one could get Christmas T.P. She had a friend who used to have it but that was yearsa ago. So maybe we'd best mark that part of the story off as fiction! Merry Christmas, everyone, and thanks again for your great comments.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you for your research, Colleen. It seems Christmas T.P. is a rare commodity nowadays!
