Welcome to Day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!
Today we have Author Emerald Barnes with us.
To me, the holidays mean spending time with family.? Now, that I have three nieces and two nephews, my favorite things about Christmas are watching their excitement over making Santa’s Christmas cookies, the candy that we give away to church members and family, and the excitement in their eyes when they wake up to see what Santa has brought them.? My family means the world to me, and I feel like my nieces and nephews are my own kids.
Another thing that I adore about the Christmas season is the fact that we get to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.? As a Christian family, we put our focus on Christ, making sure my nieces and nephews understand that Santa or gifts aren’t what Christmas is about.? Christmas is about giving.? We give because the greatest gift was given to us.? I sometimes think we all lose focus of that, and my family tries to make sure that we give back as much as we can because God sent His Son as our gift.? That is what Christmas means to me.
Books by Emerald Barnes
It?s on the edge of her memory like a word on the tip of her tongue, but Kandi can?t remember what it is to save her life.
Despite being a cop, Jimmy can?t protect Kandi from the one thing that haunts her. She?s in danger and doesn?t even know it. After it happened, her brain repressed her memories of the accident, and now, she?s taking a Biology class under a man who wants to see her dead. The memories have started coming back, and it feels like she?s miles away from him. How can he protect her when she doesn?t even know she needs protecting?
Can these characters pierce their way through the darkness?
Alexia Wheaton?s problems go far beyond picking a dress and a date for the homecoming dance.
For seven years, Alex has lived with a painful memory – the memory of her parents’ horrific murder. As the sole witness, she has kept quiet about the identity of the murderer to protect herself and her family and friends, but when a journalist over hears her secret and writes about it in the local newspaper, Alex is plagued with fear that her parents’ murderer will soon find her – and silence her forever.
Alex is catapulted into a race against time to save her own life and bring her parents’ murderer to justice. She will face many secrets, lies, and betrayals before the truth about their murder is revealed.
