Millie’s Awesome Holiday Miracle by Top 100 Author Nancy Fraser

She’s an overworked single mom struggling to make ends meet. He’s the handsome CEO who’s come to Dickens to save—or close—the toy factory. Can one precocious little girl bring a couple of much-needed miracles to the people she cares about most?

A note from Nancy....

As a very proud grandmother of five, nothing is more important to me during the holidays than family. So, when I planned out my story for the Christmas Comes to Dickens anthology, I knew it had to include children. Or, in this case, one very precocious five-year-old who believes in the magic of holiday wishes.

Book Description

Single mom, Cassidy Kean, struggles to make ends meet for herself and her five-year-old daughter, Millie. With the Christmas holidays fast approaching, Cass takes on a bit more than she can handle while trying to get her new party planning business off the ground. Thankfully, she has a good friend and neighbor who willingly cares for Millie while Cass works. Now, if only she could get Frances to stop filling Millie’s head with stories of holiday magic.

Rick Barrett is facing a dilemma. His family-owned toy company is in jeopardy of being made obsolete, which will mean closing the local factory in Dickens and the loss of dozens of jobs, a devastating blow to the small community. What he needs is a new idea to compete with the big guys, something that will drag kids away from their electronics and back to a real, hand-crafted toy.

When Rick meets frazzled, but beautiful, Cassidy and her precocious daughter Millie, he’s immediately smitten, despite the fact he’s never been great with children.

Will sharing in their enthusiasm for the upcoming Christmas season bring him the two things he needs most...true love and a business-saving miracle?

  1. Maddie, thank you for the wonderful feature! This has definitely been a project of love and committment. I couldn't ask for a nicer group of co-authors than the Ladies of Dickens.

    1. I agree! Wonderful authors AND their stories (and cookies....) I can't wait to try your shortbreads!

  2. I LOVE this story! And I MUST try those shortbread cookies! Thanks for an 0h-so-sweet feature this Friday, Maddie!

  3. I think the cookie book is almost as exciting as the anthology. Or maybe it's just the cookies themselves... A great feature, ladies!

    1. Indeed. I have to schedule a baking week. But I also have to configure some of the recipes for gluten free! That's a challenge I'll accept. :)

  4. I’m so excited for this set to land in my Kindle! What a lovely post!

    1. Thanks, Bonnie! Your story will be featured next week. :)
