Overview

Think Sandra Bullock meets country hunk. Wacky fresh and funny characters are stranded together in a Smoky Mountain snowstorm three days before Christmas.
Tina Cole has one goal: to take back control of her life. Falling in love isn't part of the bargain. On the rebound from a fizzled relationship, she lands on writer Hank Gordon's doorstep and finds that everything she thought she wanted out of life means nothing without love.
Recently divorced and disillusioned by love, Hank Gordon has sworn off women. He isn't in the mood to entertain a woman with an attitude who frustrates him more than any woman he’s ever met. Hank’s novel deadline is twenty-four hours away and he's cut off from the world with no phone or email service, and a beautiful, aggravating crazy woman to distract him. If Hank thinks his life couldn't get any worse, he's wrong. Not only is he baby-sitting a sassy Southern princess who has no idea what a kitchen is for, but two escaped convicts turn up at the cabin, while Hank’s horse is about to foal.
A rollicking story filled with passion, humor, suspense, and zesty romantic adventure.

http://caroldevaney.weebly.com/ - June Faver
A Smoky Mountain Christmas is a delightful read. Two quirky, misfits on the rebound accidentally wind up stranded together in an isolated place. Over the course of a few days, they grow to appreciate each other and lose their hearts in spite of seemingly overwhelming odds. Two more dissimilar characters I’ve never met, but they are able to grow together and find that the other is exactly what they need to heal their past hurts and become whole again. A sweet feel-good story for holidays.

    Delightful, Satisfying Story

    I love books with happy endings, and Ms. DeVaney delivers a wonderfully satisfying read just in time for the holidays.

    When I read I always try to guess the plot twists and turns and I have to admit, I was surprised several times in this charming story.

    Quirky characters, romance and danger, this book has it all. I won't give away the ending, but if the reader isn't moved, I'd say they have a cold heart.

    A thoroughly enjoyable, quick read. Highly recommend it.

    A Southern Voice I could read over and over again

    I really enjoyed this sweet and funny novel. A Christmas novel with heart and lots of story. Hank and Tina are an odd couple thrust together by a winter storm. Although these two nettle each other, there is a strong attraction just below the surface and soon it bubbles to the top. I can't count the number of times I laughed out loud. But when these two face danger, they form a united front and grow even closer. Can't wait to read another by this author.

    Great story.

    I laughed so many times reading this. The heroine can't do anything right, but she's stubborn and determined. And the hero just sits back and watches her fail over and over again, yet he puts up with her and finds her efforts to be endearing. Carol DeVaney has a unique style and I like it. I think it's meant for adults but even a teen could read this book. This story lingers long after the story ends. I'll be watching for more from this author.

    An odd read

    This was a cute read but the verbal rapport between characters was unnatural and sometimes didn't make sense. The repitition of character description was a little aggravating and the ending seemed rushed. But an okay read to pass the time.

    TERRIBLE! The plot was very weak and boring. The main characte

    TERRIBLE! The plot was very weak and boring. The main characters spend the entire book being sarcastic with one another and on the very last page profess sudden true love. Don't waste your time. Last time i read this author.
