The Friends We Keep
To continue our countdown to publication day for All I Want for Christmas, I’m sharing another teaser!
We all have those great friends with whom we love spending time, who keep our secrets, and help us through the hard things that come our way. Leah Evans is no different. She has two really great friends. They all started out in a single mothers’ group together but dwindled to three–Leah, Roz, and Louise–and they call themselves The Girls. So The Girls will give you a teeny tiny glimpse of the characters in All I Want for Christmas. Hope you enjoy it!

Did anyone get a movie or anything?”
“I thought we could play cards,” Louise piped up, taking a dainty sip from her glass and looking back and forth between Roz and Leah. “I brought some. They’re Toy Story though.”
Roz snorted as Louise pulled her five-year-old’s cards from her handbag.
