Sheila Roberts lives on a lake in the Pacific Northwest. She’s happily married and has three children. She’s been writing since 1989, but she did lots of things before settling in to her writing career, including owning a singing telegram company and playing in a band. Her band days are over, but she still enjoys writing songs. Sheila's books are best sellers and often appear as Reader's Digest Condensed Books. Her novel Angel Lane was named one of Amazon's top ten romances in 2009. Her novel On Strike for Christmas was a Lifetime Network movie and her novel The Nine Lives of Christmas was made into a movie for the Hallmark channel. When she’s not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences or hanging out with her girlfriends she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.
About Christmas from the Heart
Christmas from the Heart centers on a young, determined woman fighting to save her charity, and a stranded Scrooge of a millionaire who discovers the true meaning of Christmas and finds his heart along the way.
Olivia’s charity, Christmas from the Heart, has helped generations of families in Pine River, but this year might be their last when one of their biggest donors, Hightower Enterprises, pulls out indefinitely when taken over by a new CFO, Guy Hightower.
Guy is simply being practical. Hightower Enterprises doesn’t have extra money to share. But with charitable donations dwindling, the Christmas budget depends on Hightower's contribution. Olivia’s focused her whole life on helping this small town; she would hate to see the charity in shambles with this detrimental loss.
When Guy's Maserati breaks down at the edge of the Cascade foothills, he's rescued by a pretty, young woman who drives him to the nearby town of Pine River. Until he realizes his rescuer is none other than Olivia Berg. He needs to get out of town ASAP before she discovers his identity, so until then he’ll play nice while sipping his tea and eating fruitcake. What could possibly go wrong?
