A few of Laurel's favorite things!

One of the best parts of writing small-town romance is getting to dive into community, nostalgia, and traditions. I think this is why we love holiday romances so much—they tap into everything we adore about romance (the power of hope and love) and wrap it up in all of the joy (and drama!) of the holidays. In Holiday by Candlelight, Caleb and Garnet fall in love in December, while planning a workplace holiday party and sharing Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve with each other. 

With traditions in mind, I thought it would be fun to share a couple of recipes with you that play on the themes of the book. The first is eggnog pie, which Garnet makes for Christmas. It comes from my granny’s old, falling-apart cookbook, and it’s definitely on my to-bake list this year. A Hanukkah recipe that I want to try my hand at soon is sufganiyot, Caleb’s favorite jelly donuts. But I didn’t want to spring a recipe on you untested, so instead, here’s a tried-and-true recipe for latkes that’s delicious. It comes from my friend’s mom (her pro tip - be sure to squeeze all the water out of the shredded potatoes.) I live for the annual chance to bury my face in a plate of them. I can never decide if I like them better with sour cream or applesauce, so I alternate… If you make them, let me know what condiment you settle on.

I hope you have a peaceful, loving holiday filled with people you love and traditions that fill your heart and soul, and that amidst the busyness, you have ample time to curl up with something delicious to eat and a book to read. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Miniseries: Sutter Creek, Montana

A tragic accident ended the life he once knew

Is a Hanukkah miracle right around the corner?

This year, Dr. Caleb Matsuda could do without holiday cheer. After an avalanche robbed him of his ability to practice surgery, he struggles to make it through each day. He may be intrigued by new colleague Garnet James, but she’s also a search-and-rescue volunteer who could be in danger at any moment. If only she wasn’t perfect for the man he used to be…
