"Gifts"- Justine McNally leaves heads to work at the historic Main Street Hotel with two gifts: one to give away and another to mark Return to Sender. Christmas Eve triggers a flood of decade-old memories of shattered trust and a too-good-to-be-true boyfriend. Justine’s plans for her packages get shoved aside for the frenzy of an unexpected Dickens’ Era extravaganza. When the party guests include faces from her past, Justine must decide whether to keep running, or receive the gift of a second chance that just might change the future of one of the presents in her tote bag. 

"Running with Roselle" -  A puppy who became a true American hero. The blind boy who let nothing stop him. When they finally grew up and met, it was magic. On September 11, 2001, a blind man escaped the World Trade Center by walking down 78 flights of stairs with his guide dog. Days later, America fell in love with Mike and Roselle, and the special bond that helped them survive. Mike shared his story in the New York Times bestselling book, Thunder Dog. Now, in Running With Roselle, kids can follow Roselle as she grows from an energetic yellow Lab prone to stealing her puppy raiser’s slippers to a confident guide dog who passes the ultimate test when her partner needs her most.
