Name That Book! – Answers & Winners!

Name That Book Header Image - Answers & Winners

If you missed last week’s post, it’s not too late to play for fun! However, the deadline for entering to win has now closed and today I am sharing the answers and announcing the winners!

First, the answers!

 

Mystery Book #1

This book deals with racial issues present in 1875 Colorado Territory.  The primary themes are accepting forgiveness and learning to adjust when your dreams don’t turn out to be what you imagined they were.

ANSWER:  From a Distance by Tamera Alexander

Mystery Book #2

The way the author of this book grows the heroine from a self-absorbed, social-ladder-climbing, destructively selfish young woman, into an others-focused, humbly grateful, aid-to-the-poor-and-downtrodden, generous young woman, is something to be truly admired.

ANSWER:  The Thorn Keeper by Pepper D. Basham

Mystery Book #3

This book questions the definition of strength and courage. My favorite part of this book has to be the women. Man, I love these women! I just want to be their friends. And more importantly, I want them on my side in a fight!

ANSWER:  Long Time Gone by Mary Connealy 

Mystery Book #4

This novel dares to include sensitive topics which other books rarely include. It does so in a way that is not at all preachy, but instead feels very personal and real to the hero and heroine of this story. This book asks the reader to define true community and addresses faith in the face of tragedy and suffering, as well as the struggles of discerning God’s purpose for our lives.

ANSWER:  Such A Hope by Sondra Kraak

Mystery Book #5

While reading the first chapter of this book, I felt like a fish on a line being reeled in. And it just kept going. I did not want to put this book down. Instead of viewing the Revolutionary War from the distant, almost omniscient and impersonal perspective we were taught in school, this story takes us into the home and personal lives of just one family.

ANSWER:  The Scarlet Coat by Angela K. Couch

Mystery Book #6

This book is the third book in a series and features one of my Top 5 Heroes! The primary themes are prejudice, forgiveness, and the cost of hate.

ANSWER:  The Thorn Healer by Pepper D. Basham

Mystery Book #7

This book features quotes from Pygmalion.

ANSWER:  Twist of Faith by Pepper D. Basham

Mystery Book #8

This book is set in a women’s colony and features an atypical hero (also one of my Top 5 Heroes).

ANSWER:  Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer

Mystery Book #9

This book’s hero is a young Chippewa widow.

ANSWER:  Under a Blackberry Moon by Serena B. Miller

Mystery Book #10

This book featured everyone from a popular fairy artist to a retired missionary.

ANSWER:  Love at First Laugh – Eight Romantic Novellas Filled with Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After by Krista Phillips, Pepper Basham, Christina Coryell, Heather Gray, Elizabeth Maddrey, Jessica Patch, Laurie Tomlinson, & Marion Ueckermann

Book Tour Launch for
A Family Under the Christmas Tree
By Terri Reed

David and Sophie don’t even know the gift they need to find the most under the Christmas tree this year, but an unexpected meeting between a little boy and Sophie’s dog might lead to just that. We hope you enjoyed coming along with us as we get to know more about their story on this tour! If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now…

Launch – Author Interview

2. What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read it?

I hope readers will see the beauty of letting go of expectations and embracing new circumstances. That sometimes life doesn’t go the way we want and that’s okay because the unexpected sometimes is more than we could have hoped for.

Reading Is My SuperPower – Review

“A Family Under the Christmas Tree by Terri Reed is sweet and romantic and heartwarming. Troy and Riggs, as well as Sophie’s grandma, add moments of humor and make the story all the more endearing. This is an ideal read for fans of Hallmark Christmas movies or for anyone looking for a quick and uplifting escape from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.”

Katie’s Clean Book Collection – Review

“I adored Grandma and her puppy, Riggs. When you add that handful, Troy, to the mix, the story is definitely entertaining and fun. They are each catalysts, in their own ways, to bringing this couple together. I do love a story where the characters undergo some change, especially in their outlooks on life. There are some good elements to this story and it is a sweet Christmas read.”

Falling Leaves – All-Time Favorite Christmas Movie

My all-time favorite Christmas movie is A Charlie Brown Christmas, released in December of 1965. This is the longest-running cartoon special in history, airing every year but this classic almost didn’t make it on the air. The studios hated it, No television networks wanted to play it. They didn’t like the religious theme running through the story or the contemporary jazz score. It was criticized for not having a laugh track, and for using voices of real children (except for Snoopy, who was voiced by the show’s animator Bill Melendez). The creator of the show, Charles Schulz, wanted the central meaning of the show to reflect his own beliefs of Christmas. With his clout, Schulz managed to get his little animated cartoon to air…

Zerina Blossom’s Books – Author Interview

Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or is it purely all imagination?

I like to add a bit of real life to my stories. There are several scenes in A Family Under the Christmas Tree that come from personal knowledge. The setting of Bellevue Washington is where I have family so I was able to describe it from having visited the city. In the story, the characters visit a Christmas tree farm, which I patterned after a local tree farm here that we’d visit often when my children were young. It was fun to remember back to those days with my kids.

Bookworm Lisa – Review

“I enjoyed the sweet message of the book. The characters were well written and easy to like. The book is a clean romance with kissing. This is a great Christmas time read to cuddle up with.”

Mommabears Book Blog – Favorite Christmas Moments

My favorite Christmas moments are unpacking the decorations and hanging them on the Christmas tree. When my husband and I were first married, we had no decorations of our own. At the time I worked for a mall department store in Sacramento California, so with my employee discount I bought a few ornaments—a set of diamond shaped mirrors, a box of round colorful bulbs and a pretty tree topper that sparkled. Not very many decorations for the four-foot tree that fit nicely in our snug little apartment….

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Reviews

“What a heartwarming story. . . . I would recommend this story to all readers, especially ones who love Christmas time as I do and enjoy a good love story.” – Vickie

“WOW! I literally could not put it down until I finished it! It is such a “cleanly” delightful read! I am certainly glad it isn’t any lengthier than it is, or I would not have enjoyed the company of my spouse in the evening!” – Lu Ann

Jessica and Gracie’s Tree – Review

“Set against a winter backdrop during Christmas, this is the perfect fluffy novel for a cold night. . . . This writing is great, the characters are developed, and the romance is believable. I highly recommend this novel. Add it to your Christmas list!”

Mel’s Shelves – The Characters



The characters of A Family Under the Christmas Tree are very dear to me. I really liked David, Sophie and Troy. As well as Grandma Louise and Simon. I enjoyed developing them because they surprised me the more as I dug into them. I had this germ of an idea—I wanted to do something along the lines of Scrooge meets Mary Poppins. As part of developing the story I find photos of actors that resemble how I see my characters. Having the visual helps me in my descriptions as well as makes them more three dimensional in my own mind.

Kathleen Denly – Author Interview

I noticed in the bio on your website that you spent ten years working as a model in your life-before-writing. How did that experience help with developing the character of Sophie Griffith?

Having worked in front of the camera for many years afforded me an appreciation for photography. I was able to glean the art it takes, the time and patience as well as the technical know-how for a well-done photo shoot. I enjoyed putting my knowledge to work for Sophie.

Getting Your Read On – Review

“This book is all sweetness and Christmas goodness. If you are looking for a cute holiday romance then you should check this book out. . . . It was a little slow moving, but the characters were likable and brought a smile to my face. Christmas stories during December are always fun to read!”

Paulette’s Papers – Cranberry Sauce

Who says Cranberry sauce is only for Thanksgiving? Our family enjoys cranberry sauce for all special occasion meals, including Christmas dinner. In fact, for us Christmas dinner is the same menu as Thanksgiving. We’ve long done the canned jellied or whole cranberries and been perfectly happy. But this year my nephew decided we’d try a homemade version. And my, is it delicious.

Kindle and Me – Review

“I might have shed a few tears at the tender moments in the book. So, if you like a little cry, opening up your heart, books with loss, puppies, Christmas, snowflakes, serving others, finding love and having a family that loves you then this might be for you!”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

“This book was very cute and a quick, fun read. It’s everything a sweet Christmas romance should be. It has a meddling, matchmaking grandma, a mischievous little boy, a puppy, snow…what more could you want? . . . All of you sweet, clean romance lovers are going to want to add A Family Under the Christmas Tree to your TBR piles!”

Tell Tale Book Reviews – Christmas Cookies

For me the Christmas season isn’t complete without Christmas cookies. . . . In my story, A Family Under the Christmas Tree, my heroine Sophie and her grandmother help young Troy bake and decorate cookies. A tradition I’ve done with my mother when I was young and one I have continued with my own kids.

A Family Under the Christmas TreeA Family Under the Christmas Tree
by Terri Reed
Inspirational Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 340 pages
October 4th 2016 by Howard Books

In this heartwarming tale set during the Christmas season, a single father and a fashion photographer are brought together by a young boy and a mischievous Bernese mountain dog—but first they must learn to set aside their differences if they are willing to let their relationship bloom.

David Murphy never knew much about kids. But when his brother dies unexpectedly, David is granted custody of his six-year-old nephew, Troy, who he’s only seen once a year since he was born. He already has his hands full running his business, and he has no idea how to help the grieving boy. When Troy runs off one day, David finds him at a park playing with an adorable and rambunctious Bernese mountain dog—who leads him to Sophie.

Sophie Griffith has spent her life travelling around the world as a photojournalist. She has never stayed in one place for long, and her new assignment—helping her grandmother for a few weeks—is just temporary. Once Christmas day comes, Sophie is off the hook and can leave for a new adventure. Caring for her grandmother is a piece of cake—but caring for her new Bernese mountain dog, Riggs, is a different story. It doesn’t help that Riggs strikes up a friendship with a lost little boy one day at the park—and leads her to David.

Neither David nor Sophie have time for romance. But as they spend more time together, they start falling for each other even though they know it can’t go anywhere. Sophie will be gone after Christmas, and the last thing David needs is another distraction as he tries to comfort Troy. But as their faith and growing love for the boy and dog unites them, they wonder whether it’s more than a holiday romance…and maybe Troy might finally get his Christmas wish for a family.

Now, on to the interview!

Thank you, Terri, for agreeing to chat with me and congratulations on the release of your latest book, A Family Under the Christmas Tree! I know everyone’s busy this time of year, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet with six fun questions.

I noticed in the bio on your website that you spent ten years working as a model in your life-before-writing. How did that experience help with developing the character of Sophie Griffith?

Having worked in front of the camera for many years afforded me an appreciation for photography. I was able to glean the art it takes, the time and patience as well as the technical know-how for a well-done photo shoot. I enjoyed putting my knowledge to work for Sophie.

I volunteer in the foster youth community so children in need are dear to my heart. What inspired you to write a story that included a boy who’d lost his family?

I knew I wanted a child in the story and I thought it would be interesting to explore how my very career driven hero would take on sudden parenthood. And David didn’t disappoint, he stepped up to the plate and changed his life for his nephew despite how little he knew of being a parent.

The mischievous Riggs plays an important role in your story. I’m curious, why a Bernese mountain dog?Burnese Mountain Puppy - Mostly black with tan splotches, a white belly, white toes, white snout, a white-tipped tail and a white strip running up between the eyes.

Well, two things happened that led me to use a Bernese mountain dog in A Family Under the Christmas Tree.  I was on Pinterest looking for inspiration and came across a graphic of an adorable Bernese wearing a Santa hat standing beside a downed Christmas tree. The caption read, “Mom, the tree fainted.” I thought that was too cute. Then a few days later we were out at a park and met a Bernese mountain dog pup that was absolutely adorable.  I knew then I would use a Bernese mountain dog in the story.

What a great story! Also, I have to agree:  Bernese mountain puppies are pretty much melt-your-heart adorable.

What is your favorite childhood book?

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Oooh! That’s a favorite of mine, too. 

Tell me something about you that might surprise your readers.

I have an extreme phobia of snakes. Doesn’t matter if they are on TV, behind a glass case or in the wild.  They give me the creeps. Mostly because I had a few close run-ins with a variety of snakes when I was a child.

What other authors are you friends with and how did they help you become a better writer?

I belong to Romance Writers of America and know a great many authors. There’s a huge community of writers out there and everyone I have met has been so generous with their support and encouragement. There are several authors who have had an influence on my writing career. Most noteworthy was author Lenora Worth who mentored me when I was an unpublished author. She gave of her time and expertise to help me along my journey to becoming published.

It’s always great to hear about authors supporting each other. I’ve added a link to your answer in case readers want to learn more about Lenora. 

Terri, thanks so much for sharing with us!
