About the Author

Born in Philadelphia, Courtney J. Hall's writing career began when she figured out how much fun it was to make words rhyme. She has since gone on to publish embarrassingly bad poetry, melodramatic short stories and has written beginnings to at least a half-dozen novels.

Courtney lives with her husband and a stolen cat in suburban Philadelphia and is the author of two novels - Some Rise by Sin, an historical romance that takes place at the tumultuous end of Mary Tudor's reign, and A Holiday Wish, book 1 in the Silver Bells holiday romance series. Both books were published by Five Directions Press.

When she's not busy writing, she's reading, baking, shopping, and buying anything with a Union Jack on it.

A HOLIDAY WISH, and the operative word is "Holiday," is a delicious romp through friendship, heartbreak, and determination. It even has a well-plotted mystery (why did the bride's parents die in a fire, and whose fault was it?) woven in for good measure. Courtney J. Hall is not only a good writer, she is fun. Her depiction of Noelle Silver's breakdown after her long-time boyfriend, Drew, dumps her - we've all been there and done that - is spot on, from tears to self-doubt to self-blame to the terrible decision to close the wedding planning business that she loves and run home to her mother and sister. One of the things I got the biggest kick out of in his book was Noelle's relationship to coffee. She loves it. She loves it madly! But after Drew ends their engagement in a coffee shop that she also loves, Noelle loses her taste for the brew, loses her taste for her favorite coffee shop, and even fears staying in Springhollow, which has always been "Drew's town." If she surrenders to despair and turns her back on her business, Noelle might avoid encountering her ex-boyfriend and his new fiancée, but…? What about the wonderful business and life she has created for herself since Springhollow has also become her town? Would it be best to stay, or leave? What happens when Brooke St. John offers Noelle an outrageous sum of money to plan a Christmas wedding – in only two months? And why is Brooke’s brother so determined to sabotage all of Noelle’s plans? Yes. This book deals with duplicity and heartbreak. But in much the same way that an Agatha Christie mystery deals with murder. It is entertaining. It is fun. And, as a caffeine addict myself, for me the biggest avenue of suspense is: Will Noelle ever come to love coffee again? Read A HOLIDAY WISH. Have a happy romp through the life of a charming wedding planner. Find out!!!
