More Christmas stories!
Sleigh Bells on Bread Loaf Mountain by Lindy Miller will release on December 7 in the Adult, Contemporary, Holiday, Romance genre.
Screenplay by the writer of Rescuing Madison and A Lesson in Romance (Hallmark), and the forthcoming Aloha with Love.
Christmas isn’t fashion editor Roxanne Hudson’s style, but when she finds herself snowed in with a handsome stranger, she might just discover the magic of the season after all.
Roxanne Hudson does not like the holidays. They come with too many family obligations that take her away from work as a rising fashion editor in New York City. But this Christmas might be Grandma Myrtle’s last, and Roxanne’s parents want her to spend the holiday at the family cabin in the Green Mountains. With her boyfriend out of the country for a photo shoot, Roxanne decides to brave the long commute—and the wilderness—to spend Christmas in Vermont.
After an uncomfortable call from her boyfriend starts the trip off badly, Roxanne is blindsided by a blizzard on the snowy mountain road, where the last thing she hears before losing consciousness is sleigh bells. When she’s rescued by Mark Foster, a handsome park ranger who’s the exact opposite of everything she always thought she wanted, Roxanne seeks her grandmother’s wisdom and discovers an uncanny connection that could be a sign of what her life is really meant to be.

Funny story, Sleigh Bells on Bread Loaf Mountain didn’t start off with the intention to become a book—it didn’t even start of called Sleigh Bells on Bread Loaf Mountain! I was sitting on the sofa one fall, overcoming an injury, and watching a lot of Hallmark channel when I texted one of my best friends and said: I could write one of these. I figured it would be a fun way to pass the time before I could get back to the textbook I was working on, and that maybe I’d get a cute story out of the endeavor. Ever supportive, my friend responded with a list of zany, totally cheesy ideas, but…they stuck. I named the lead character
