by Patrice Wilton

What holiday(s) does your family celebrate?
I grew up in Canada, but moved around the world once I was married. We have always celebrated Christmas, with a tree, ornaments, and of course gifts in every country we lived. We also celebrate Thanksgiving, but now that we live in the US we celebrate it in November and not October. We also do Easter, and when my kids were young we enjoyed Halloween.

What's your favorite Christmas tradition? 
We love having my daughter and her family joining us at Christmas time, as we live in West Palm Beach and they are in New Jersey. When they come we go out to Spoto’s Oyster Bar for Christmas eve, and then come home and open one present. The following day it’s a delight to watch the children open their presents and see their joy. We might watch a Christmas show in the late afternoon and have a wonderful turkey dinner, followed by Christmas music and lively conversation. It’s a time for families to be together.

What was your most memorable Christmas experience as a child? And as an adult? 
When my daughter was three we had a family friend dress up as Santa Claus and deliver presents. My daughter knew right away who he was and asked what “Brian” was doing at our house in his santa outfit. Needless to say, we never asked him back! 

Do you have a favorite Christmas dish? 
If so, what is it and can you share the recipe? My mother loved to bake and she did wonderful shortbread cookies, butter tarts and mincemeat tarts. I made the mincemeat tarts one year and loved them, but my husband had never had them before and I ended up eating them all myself! No family around that Christmas, I’m sorry to say.  Here is a recipe for your enjoyment. Use short crust pastry (store bought is fine!) and put your round shells into a 12 cup muffin tin. For the filling, a 11 ounce jar of mincemeat, ½ medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated, zest of a lemon - you may add chopped nuts or candied fruit, or a little extra brandy or rum! Enjoy! 

What's the best Christmas gift you've ever received? 
My family. Having moved around the world and married twice, my husband and I have no family close. We have 4 adult children with families of their own, and they live in different states from us. We also have nine grand children between us. 

What Christmas gift would you buy for your main characters? 
Easy. An engagement ring!

Rated R

Heaven has a bit of danger and adventure.

Following on the heals of A Heavenly Christmas, this book tells the story of the waitress mentioned here and there, and shows us several wonderful glimpses of Nick and Jennie, and their two little girls. Switching the focus to Ally was awesome, and made it feel as though we're getting to know the whole town, instead of just one or two people.

Ally is in hiding from a psycho ex-boyfriend, which is a surprise to most people. While she finds comfort from her boss/friend Nick, and her new bff Jennie, she's still far more afraid than she's willing to let on. She is both grateful and reluctant to accept the new Sheriff's help, but needs to avoid a dangerous run-in with a man she knows could do her quite a bit of harm.

Ian is new to town, and a darn good Sheriff. Divorced and hoping for a fresh start in a little town, a developing case of a stalker ex-boyfriend of a local waitress is the last thing he expected. While he works to keep her safe, he finds himself increasingly drawn to the quirky amateur photographer, purple spiky hair and all. She's not his typical type, and he isn't hers - maybe that's exactly what they both need.

This book has a bit more heat than the first book, which I didn't enjoy all that much, hence the missing star. Beyond that, I loved the turn into danger and a little bit of darkness thrown into Heaven. The sweet town gets rocked a bit, and the way it threw Ian and Ally together was a far more adrenaline-fueled romance. The writing was just as good (I would assume), and the narration was done very well. The story flowed well, and the humor balanced the action perfectly.

I would definitely recommend this book to others, especially fans of holiday adventures. While you could enjoy this book on it's own, I would recommend starting with the prequel, as it will introduce the town in a different light, giving this story even more depth.

*I was given a complimentary audiobook copy of this book, from the author via Audiobookworm Promotions, to listen to in exchange for an honest review.
