Jodi Thomas Guest Post – Spotlight on: A Christmas Affair

A warm welcome back to Jodi Thomas, author of the Ransom Canyon series. Today Jodi will give a brief glimpse into the next installment – a novella: A CHRISTMAS AFFAIR. Thanks for visiting today, Jodi. I can’t wait to read Maria’s story!

Often when I write a book there is a story that I didn’t have time to tell.  A person who didn’t get their happy ever after ending.

Maria, Dakota’s sister in INDIGO LAKE, was that person.  I wanted to see her with her own story.

The fact that she is blind is only a part of the story.  For one time, one moment, she wants to feel alive.   She sets out to make her dream come true.  In her mind she can’t see forever, but she’s daydreamed of having an affair with the kind storekeeper she talks to every week.  Since her accident she’s never felt fully alive, so she decides to give herself a gift for Christmas.  An affair with Wes Whitman.

Even if it only lasts one night, she’ll have a memory to keep.

Only, he wants far more.  Wes wants forever.

I look forward to my readers stepping into the familiar setting of Crossroads, Texas, and celebrating Christmas with Maria and Wes.

Happy Reading,

Jodi Thomas

    • The first I read was Rewriting Mondays. That made me want to read more by Jodi Thomas. I would also recommend reading book 1 in the Ransom Canyon series: Ransom Canyon.


    • Lloyd, Mary has some great suggestions and just FYI–I am currently writing Book Seven in the Ransom Canyon series. So once you start, I hope you’ll be hooked!


    • It’s a perfect holiday read for fans of the series or anyone wanting to sample the author’s writing. Thanks for stopping by, Susan!


    • It makes sense, though. Especially to authors of series whose characters make reappearances in several books, I would imagine.


  1. I need to read this author! I can relate to what she said about needing to write a story for a character that didn’t get that happy ending. I did that in my sixth book (Interior Designs), with a character from my third book (Embrace the Whirlwind).

    Thanks for sharing!


    • Makes sense to me, Laurel. I hope you get a chance to try one of Jodi’s novels. If you do, try Ransom Canyon. It’s $1.99 in the kindle store today. It’s the first book in the series.
