Josey’s Christmas Cookie Blog Tour





5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovable Story!

By Debby Lee

I loved this heartwarming Christmas story.
Josey was a workaholic who spent all her spare time at the office in order to cope with the tragic loss of her parents and being jilted by her fiance. I really felt for her.
Clint was a handsome veterinarian Josey met at an animal rescue event who helped her buy a large slobbering dog named Cookie. Clint handled the animals with professionalism, sincerity, and great care.
The two Morning Dove’s in the story, Harry and Beatrice, were desperate to see Josey and Clint get together in time for Christmas.
If you enjoy sweet plots, whimsical animal themes, and stories that make you go “aaawww” this one’s for you.
Highly entertaining, highly recommended!




In the blink of an eye, Josey lost the most important people in her life, her parents.
Can a hound dog named Cookie, a pair of mourning doves, and a passionate vet bring the holiday spirit back to Josey’s life in time for Christmas?

As I stared at the pathetic dog in his diaper, I realized no one wanted the dog, they were just gawking at him. The sign said his name was Cookie, part Basset Hound and part Redbone Coonhound. I didn’t know anything about either breed. I did know he was very large and he was slobbering everywhere and he should have a diaper around his neck. I turned to continue my search and a felt a tug on my pant leg. I looked down and Cookie had a hold of my jeans. When our eyes met, Cookie’s eyes twinkled, just like Clint’s.
A glob of drool hit the top of my shoe. He let go of my pant leg and licked the goo off my shoe. I wanted to say, “gross,” but instead I said, “thank you.” I was hooked. His fur was a reddish brown and soft as silk. Not caring about drool or dog hair, I sat down on the floor next to Cookie, wrapped my arms around his neck, and finally felt at peace.
Another glob of drool hit the floor next to my butt. He looked sad, like that was a deal breaker and I’d leave him behind. I looked Cookie in his sad eyes and laughed. He pulled back his goofy lips and smiled back.
That’s when I heard Clint’s voice, “Well Josey, it looks like you found your soul mate.”

He laughed, but not at my expense.

Snow is unprepared for not only the hostility but also the irresistible attraction she feels for Richard Wilder, a dynamic and successful business-man who is committed to protect her at all cost. Will Snow be able to control her attraction to him and keep things professional or will she finally give in and find her true “happily ever after?”

New Release Spotlight: Red Soles at Night Christmas Delight

May I suggest a recipe for the perfect Christmas when all you’ve got is an empty heart? Christmas should be a joyous time, but all too often people are alone when loved ones are no longer near. This being the case for my heroine in Red Soles at Night, Christmas Delight, I chose three of my favorite ingredients to help fill the void in her life: lifelong friends, fabulous shoes, and the sparkling hope of a new beginning.
Red Soles at Night Christmas Delight

I’m a firm believer in the heart-healing power of all three ingredients. The first, friends, should be those who spring from that wonderful time before the advent of interest in the opposite sex. They know your foibles; you’ve shared uninhibited laughter, and been together through all of those adventures in mud and make-believe.  The second ingredient, well, that goes without saying. I mean, what malady of the heart would a great pair of Louboutin’s not cure??? And the third, and arguably most important ingredient – the resurgent hope that comes when a very special someone unexpectedly enters your life.

What do all three ingredients have in common? From whichever well they spring (Friendship? Lust? Hope?), their common ingredient is love. And as we know, love conquers all, even the prospect of a sad and lonely Christmas.

May you know all three ingredients this year, and . . . Merry Christmas.
