About Christmas Ever After

• Paperback: 396 pages 
• Publisher: Hawktale Publishing (September 29, 2020) 
  From Karen Schaler, the writer of the Netflix phenomenon A Christmas Prince and Hallmark's Christmas Camp comes this new heartwarming holiday romance. Mamma Mia meets The Bachelorette in Christmas Ever After... While promoting her next novel, a Christmas love story, author Riley Reynolds is caught off guard when she's asked during a live national television interview how she can write about romance when she still hasn't found "the one" herself. Scrambling for an answer, she quickly answers that she has had great love in her past and that love inspired her novels. Little does she know that this one offhanded remark will turn her world upside down. Three of her ex-boyfriends see the interview, and each, believing she's talking about him, shows up for her Christmas Camp book event at the Christmas Lake Lodge, determined to rewrite his happily-ever-after with her! Over the festive weekend, Riley's old boyfriends compete to win her heart, pulling out all the stops while planning the most romantic Christmas dates on the planet. Despite herself, Riley starts falling for each guy- again-but for different reasons. As Riley revisits each relationship and discovers more about herself, she embraces the magic of Christmas and finally finds true love and her own Christmas ever after... Bonus Content: Christmas Ever After includes delicious original Christmas recipes and fun holiday crafts and activities. ***Head over to Karen Schaler’s website to sign up for her VIP newsletter for the latest on her many giveaways, special event and sneak peeks and much more!*** Social Media Please use the hashtag #christmaseverafter, and tag @tlcbooktours and @traveltherapy on Instagram, @tlcbooktours and @karenschalerofficial on Facebook, and @tlcbooktours and @karenschaler on Twitter.

Review: I'm totally in love with this book. It made me feel good, which is something that is really hard to do right now.

Riley is so not what I'd expect from a romance author. Her past career choices definitely didn't make her romance material. And she's not a Christmas person but to save her waning career, she's hosting a Christmas Camp and a beautifully festive lodge in Colorado.

This book reads like a Hallmark Christmas Movie. 

It is full of warm fuzzy things

Santa themed bedrooms. (No sex happening there!)

Three past boyfriends showing up at the Christmas Camp?

What could go wrong?

What could go right?

To quote my favorite tv show, this book was "Such Fun!"

Rating: 5 flowers

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review CHRISTMAS EVER AFTER and that makes my heart happy to hear it brought you some joy during these challenging times. That's 100% why I released the book this year, even though publishers wanted me to wait, I knew people needed a happy, hopefully holiday story so I started my own publishing company to make it happen. Thank you for sharing this story with your readers.
