I wrote The Accidental Christmas three years ago after a trip to the Christmas tree lot with my then-five-year-old Lil Dude. We told him that he would get to pick the tree he wanted and as we followed him between rows of trees hoping and praying he wouldn’t pick the tallest tree, he surprised us by picking a tree his size, about three feet tall.
Anyway, when we got home and admired the small tree as it stood in its rightful spot looking kinda dwarfed by all that space, I knew I had to write a story to mark the occasion.
The story that emerged is what I’d call heartwarming with some angsty moments along the way and you can download it for free by clicking on the image below. No steamy scenes here, though, but I hope you like it!
THE ACCIDENTAL CHRISTMAS
Sometimes, second chances come when you least expect it
When a marriage of convenience ends in scandal, single mother Cameron Thomas must now make a life for herself and her deaf son in a small seaside town where years ago, she’d been happiest.
But even as she struggles to adjust to a life that’s far from the lifestyle she once knew, it’s forgiving herself that’s turning out to be the toughest thing to do, made even harder when her path crosses with the man whose love she gave up so long ago.
