The Trouble With Christmas

Read an Excerpt

September 2013

It will take a Christmas miracle to melt her heart.

Resort developer Madison Lane is about to lose the one thing she loves most in the world—her job. Dubbed “The Grinch Who Killed Christmas,” Madison spoiled a deal that would turn quaint Christmas, Colorado, into a tourist’s winter wonderland. Now the citizens want her fired but the company gives her one last chance, sending Madison to the small town to restore the holiday cheer.

For Sheriff Gage McBride, no hotshot executive from New York City is going to destroy the dreams of the people he loves. But one look at this beautiful woman and it’s his heart that may be broken. In just a few days, Madison causes more trouble than he’s had to deal with all year. He can’t decide if she’s naughty or nice, but one thing is for certain—Christmas will never be the same again...

THE TROUBLE WITH CHRISTMAS  is a national bestseller!

"A fun festive tale, flush with small-town warmth and tongue-and-cheek charm. The main characters are worth rooting for, their conflicts solid and riveting . . . The tone is sweet, yet sexually charged--that kiss in the closet could power Rudolph's nose for an entire year."
~ USA Today's Happy Ever After blog

"The Trouble with Christmas offered the perfect elements to make a tale memorable, from the town folks to the drama I was completely captivated. Mason did a wonderful job of bringing Christmas, Colorado to life, and I was beyond tickled to learn this will be a new series. Besides the humor, off key singing and stolen kisses, Mason also gives us hope, joy and the holiday spirit as the town changes Madison and she in turn changes the town."

Grace Flaherty had given up hope of ever seeing her husband again. After all, it'd been over a year since he went missing in combat. So when he strides through the door of her bakery in downtown Christmas one sunny afternoon, she can hardly believe her eyes. But her happily-ever-after is going to take some effort - because Jack has no memory of his family.

All Jack Flaherty remembers about Christmas is that he couldn't wait to leave town. Now he's a local hero with a wife and son he doesn't know. Even as he struggles to rekindle the romance with his wife, he knows in his heart what he wants: a second chance at love.

"CHRISTMAS IN JULY was such an enjoyable book for me, and certainly no surprise that it was coming from this very gifted author. I have read many of Debbie Mason's stories and loved each and every one of them. Writing about everyday people and the love they share when a hiccup occurs, gives us some of the best reading around. This is book two in the Christmas Colorado series. I can't wait for the next story in this series. These are definitely "good feeling" tales to remember for a long time to come."
~ Fresh Fiction

"These characters are well developed, well rounded and realistic. They display many human traits, both positives and negatives, just like we all do. The secondary characters added another delightful level to the book. The small town setting is realistically described, and the setting, combined with the characters, makes me want to go there for at least a visit, if not to live. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well-written romance. Also to anyone who enjoys a heartwarming, feel good story."

"Christmas in July is one of those books that will make you feel. You will feel for each of the characters for different reasons. One moment you will be feeling so sad for one of them and the next thing you know that would change. It will get to the point that you will end up feeling such a connection with some of the characters that you will find tears in your eyes because of the struggles they are going through. . . I just loved this book. It captured me from the very beginning and I had a hard time letting go when it ended."
~ Paulette's Papers

"4 Stars! A quintessential romance with everything readers love: familiar and likable characters, clever dialogue and a juicy plot."
~ RT Book Reviews

"Despite the many crises that Jack and Grace must endure on their way to happily ever after, Christmas in July is a delightfully angst free novel. The characters are vibrantly developed and the problems they must overcome are believable and true to life. The small town of Christmas is realistically depicted with a wonderful spectrum of caring and somewhat colorful townspeople. This incredibly heartfelt and deeply moving romance is an outstanding addition to Debbie Mason’s Christmas, Colorado series that old and new fans do not want to miss."

It Happened at Christmas


Read an Excerpt

September 2014

Love is the best Christmas gift of all.

Free-spirited activist Skylar Davis is out of money and out of options. After using up her trust fund trying to save the world, she hides out in Christmas, hoping the kindness of friends will help her forget the reckless actions of her past. All goes well . . . until she comes face-to-face with one of her mistakes: the town's gorgeous young mayor.

Ethan O'Connor likes his life drama-free and predictable now that he's about to make the move from small-town politics to the Colorado State Senate. Then Skye blows back into town, as impulsive and passionate as he remembers. If word ever got out about their night together-the night he's never been able to forget-the scandal could cripple his career. Yet as he starts his campaign, Ethan finds that, like the town of Christmas itself, he can't get Skye out of his head . . . or his heart.

"A passionate, liberal environmental activist and a straight-arrow conservative lawyer looking to the senate set the sparks flying in this nonstop, beautifully crafted adventure that skillfully unwraps a multilayered plot, adds an abundance of colorful characters and a familiar setting, and proves in no uncertain terms that opposites do attract."
~ Library Journal

"IT HAPPENED AT CHRISTMAS is the perfect story to begin the holiday season and would make the perfect gift for anyone - including treating yourself! I adored IT HAPPENED AT CHRISTMAS and eagerly await the next novel by the wonderfully talented and always delightful Debbie Mason! Debbie Mason gives the best gift of all in this funny, heartwarming novel that touches the very core of Christmas. If you love Christmas themed books, you will really enjoy this book. I know it has become part of my permanent Christmas book collection."
~ Fresh Fiction

"This was a fascinating story to read. I found that these characters seemed to come alive on each page as you read through the story. There were several areas in this read that caused me to laugh out loud. The situations were so funny. I don't want to give any of it away other than to say you must pick up "It Happened at Christmas". See for yourself how well this author gives us such a wonderful love story."
~ Night Owl Reviews

"Very sweet story. Loved every chapter and I did not roll my eyes, huff or feel annoyed toward any characters in the book. I laughed, I cringed. I sighed. And I got teary eyed, then sighed again. This story is fantastic and filled with so much emotion."
~ After The Final Chapters

"Take another trip to Christmas, Colorado, and you'll be guaranteed a wonderful time. This is the third entry in this lovely romance series. Fans of stories about small towns charming the big city slicker, and of lots of snappy dialogue and a little bit of drama will be well pleased."
