A Delightful Christmas Love Story--Snowflake Tiara by Valerie Comer

           Historical stories with a love interest always catch my eye. And Snowflake Tiara not only has a historical, but also a contemporary story. Read more about it below and enter to win.

Snowflake Tiara
by Valerie Comer

           Wrap yourself in a warm quilt. Light a fire in the fireplace. Turn on your favorite Christmas carols — especially Away in a Manger. Grab a Christmas cookie or two and fix a mug of hot cocoa.
          Ready? It's time to snuggle up and read a delightful pair of stories set in wintry Montana in 1889 and 2014.
         What if you were caught doing something good… but the man you loved didn't see it that way? Heroines in both novellas face this dilemma.
          The Debutante Queen by Angela Breidenbach ~ 1889 (Helena, MT): Calista Blythe enters the first Miss Snowflake Pageant celebrating Montana statehood to expose the plight of street urchins. But if her hidden indentured orphan is discovered, Calista’s reputation and her budding romance with pageant organizer, Albert Shanahan, could both unravel. Will love or law prevail?
           More Than a Tiara by Valerie Comer ~ 2014 (Helena, MT): Marisa Hiller’s interest in competing in Miss Snowflake Pageant for the city of Helena’s 150th anniversary is at zip zero zilch when she discovers the official photographer is Jase Mackie. Can Jase make amends for past mistakes and offer her, not only a tiara, but a partner in her crusade to help needy children and families?

What Readers Are Saying?
           "This fun, 2-in-1 novel will have you craving Christmas no matter what time of year you read it. Between the delightful imagery of snow- covered Helena, Montana, bedecked in holiday finery, to the delectable smell of gingerbread, hot cocoa, and fresh Christmas trees, Angela Breidenbach and Valerie Comer do an amazing job of transporting you into their story world."
           "I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Helena, Montana—both the historical city and the modern one. Angela and Valerie have hit on a novel (no pun intended) idea. Both stories contain romance and fun, plus behind the scenes looks at beauty pageants and a gentle reminder that life is so much more rewarding when we help others."
