Maybe It’s the Mistletoe by Lori Soard
She’s got a heart of gold and a penchant for starting fires…
In the small town of Cupid’s Crossing, Annie Klutz is known for her generous heart and talent for creating chaos. Determined to bring joy to her ailing grandfather and the other nursing home residents during Christmas, she sets out to recreate cherished memories. However, her well-intentioned efforts often result in kitchen disasters and unexpected fires, leaving her feeling embarrassed, especially when a handsome firefighter comes to the rescue.
Jackson Sullivan, a firefighter with a broken heart, finds himself constantly drawn to Annie, despite the chaos she brings into his life. Still recovering from being left at the altar without any explanation, he never expected to encounter an accident-prone, blonde beauty who ignites sparks in his heart.
Annie’s culinary mishaps and fiery incidents interrupt any potential romantic moments between her and Jackson. Can they manage to go a day or two without a calamity? With determination and a little luck, they might just pull off the most unforgettable Christmas celebration Cupid’s Crossing has ever witnessed, bringing joy not only to the seniors but also to their own hearts.

Lori Soard has a PhD in Journalism and Creative Writing, but she’s hardly the stuffy professor type. She loves nothing better than a good romantic comedy and thinks the good guy should always win and the ending should always be happy.
From an early age, Lori started honing her story telling skills. As a kid she was rarely seen without a book in her hand, even walking and reading at the same time. Her first stories were about the world around her. At twenty she wrote her first novel, which she admits was horrible. At twenty-one, she sold her first article to a local newspaper. Once she got that taste of having others read her work and realizing that she could reach others and touch their hearts, there was no turning back for this natural born writer.
“If I can make someone’s day just a tiny bit better,” Lori says, “if I can make them smile even though they are sad, make them think things could be better, make them understand how much God loves them, then I have accomplished something. I write my stories, articles and books with that one person in mind who really needs the message. If I can change one person’s perspective, then I’ve succeeded.”
Lori is a life-long Hoosier and lives in southern Indiana with her two daughters, husband and beloved pets. “During the extreme low points in life, it has been my animals that have seen me through. There is nothing like the deep devotion of a dog or the unconditional love of a cat.” Lori adores animals and while some of her dear friends have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge she will always stand by her belief that animals make the world a better place.
She loves to hear from her readers and blogs regularly.
