Melody Carlson

Honored with Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, bestselling author Melody Carlson has been writing (professionally) for more than twenty years, with more than 200 books published and more than five million books sold. She attributes her success to her changing environment whether it’s staying in her beach cottage or enjoying her home near the Cascade Mountains; she reflects on the diverse scenery and easily gathers plenty of writing ideas. In addition to the two writing retreats Melody and her husband take the RV exploring the country and area for new story ideas and they enjoy skiing, hiking, gardening, camping and biking.

Favorite Verse: John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

It’s the “whosoever” part that gets me. That’s who I write for – “whosoever” and to me that means everyone and anyone.

EXCLUSIVE BONUS CHAPTER!

All Emma Daley wants this holiday season is a white Christmas. But the young teacher and struggling musician sure can't find that in sunny Arizona. Luckily, there's someone living in a perfect mountain home in the Colorado Rockies looking to make a vacation trade this year.
Tyler Prescott is an in-demand songwriter and talented musician who put his own singing career on hold to write songs for celebrity acts to perform. When his mother convinces him to do a vacation trade for Christmas, he never imagined one of the houseguests would be so sweet--or so pretty. Naturally, he decides to stick around, and, to get better acquainted, he poses as the house's caretaker.
