One Enchanted Christmas

Once Enchanted Christmas
Melissa Tagg
December 2015/423 KB/113 pages/$0.99

Last December, mystery author Maren Grant had the most perfect night of her life. On a glimmering winter evening, she got to watch the photo shoot for her very first book and ended up on a magical date with the cover model himself—Colin Renwycke.

Fast forward one year. This December, with a looming deadline, restless spirit and her creative spark long since gone, Maren is desperate to get unstuck. And she can’t get Colin out of her head…or his year-old open invitation to spend a couple weeks writing at his family’s farm.

Drew Renwycke never planned to come home and take over the Renwycke family farm. But he’s spent too many years watching his siblings unravel, including his brother, Colin, after one terrible family mistake. If moving to Maple Valley, Iowa, renovating an old farmhouse and switching careers is what it takes to put the Renwycke family back together, he’ll do it.

But his simple plan upends when a scrappy author lands on his doorstep. And she just might be the key to coaxing his brother home. But what if he wants her all to himself? Drew will have to choose between his Christmas wish and the enchantment of a holiday romance that just might be the happy ending they all long for.


Melissa Tagg is a former reporter, current nonprofit grant writer and total Iowa girl. She writes romantic comedies in the banter-filled style of her favorite 1930s and 40s classic films. When she's not writing she can be found hanging out with the coolest family ever, watching old movies, and daydreaming about her next book. Melissa loves connecting with readers at and on Facebook and Instagram.


Charming. Delightful. Winsome. These are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Melissa Tagg's writing, and they definitely describe One Enchanted Christmas. Once again, Tagg has released an adorable story written in her unique and enchanting style. Few authors write Rom-Com (romantic comedy) as well as she does, with the perfect blend of sweetness and sass and characters that walk off the page and into the reader's heart. Beneath the lighthearted banter and romance, however, Tagg weaves a subtle but sure thread addressing the deeper issues of the heart. I preordered this novella, impatiently awaited its arrival on my Kindle, and read it in one sitting. The only thing that would have made it better is if it had been a full-length novel. I'm eagerly anticipating the next book in Tagg's Walker Family series, coming in Spring 2016. In the meantime, don't miss this wonderful story at an incredible price!
