Countdown to Christmas - #10
The Twilight Before Christmas: A Novel (Sea Haven: Drake Sisters Book 2)
Published to Amazon on November 1, 2003
Author Christine Feehan
From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Christine Feehan, discover her passionate and paranormal novel of love and mystery at Christmastime. Kate Drake, a well-traveled bestselling novelist, is one of seven sisters—seven very special sisters who happen to be witches. When she returns to her small coastal hometown before Christmas to attend her sister’s wedding, she decides to settle there. Discovering a charming but run-down and spooky historic house, she decides to open a bookstore and sets about clearing it out when an earthquake occurs, knocking down part of the wall and revealing a burial crypt. Intrigued but cautious, she turns to the handsome carpenter she hired to help renovate the house. But Kate begins to sense that neither the carpenter nor the law nor any otherworldly power can help her reign in the evil that was released from the crypt. She will have to summon all of her supernatural power—and that of her six sisters—to destroy the sinister force that is casting a dark shadow over her hometown. The Twilight Before Christmas is a darkly charming romance, reminiscent of the holiday works of Jude Deveraux and Linda Howard.
Official published review:
The perfect Christmas present
Not your typical Christmas story, but I loved it nonetheless. I enjoyed seeing more of these sisters and their special brand of magic. The love they have for each other and the men in their lives only add to the richness of the story. The author has such an amazing talent for adding just that touch of reality to her stories making them jump off the pages and play out in my mind. I love how she delved into a darker side of the holiday, and yet the spirit of these ladies and the strength of their bond brought them to a HEA that I can’t wait to read again. This book was the perfect nightmare before Christmas and I can’t wait to see which sister finds her perfect mate next.
