Dressed in holiday style
In the air
There’s a feeling
Of Christmas…” Silver Bells
Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year. The festive decorations and lively spirit of the holiday puts a smile on my face. I enjoy listening to Christmas music and smelling the aroma of freshly-baked cookies. What are some of your favorite things to do?
This Fall I released the 2nd book in the Sydney Jones Series – Chance – A Novel. If you enjoy reading mystery thrillers with an undercurrent of conspiracies, you’ll love this one. Check out some of these awesome reviews on my media page.
You’ll find it will be a great conversation starter when it gets eerie quiet during friends and family get-togethers. I look forward to reading your reviews. Thank you.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas season. Carolyn M. Bowen

About Chance A-Novel
Walker didn’t plan to fall in love with Sydney. He blamed their closeness in proximity, horrid circumstances in her life, and no friends but a paid confidant to comfort her. There was no one to hold her in their arms, and that’s what the lady needed–to cry and release the pain in her life. Sydney struck a chord in his heart. Her beauty, along with her spark to keep going through the hell in her life, enamored him even more. Did he love her? Yes! The government had him now. It didn’t take him long to realize they’d framed him for Roxanne’s murder, then got his case dismissed when he agreed to become their agent. The problem was, Sydney may still think him guilty of murder. The agency didn’t give him time to discuss the dismissal of charges against him. All he could tell her was the government needed him and he was catching an early morning flight. When Sydney Jones’s bodyguard and lover, Walker, is framed by the CIA for the murder of a has-been rock star he once guarded, he has to leave the only woman he ever truly loved and go undercover for them or be found guilty and thrown in jail for life. He’s not even allowed to tell Sydney where he’s going or what he’s doing; he just has to…disappear.

Quote of the Day: “Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music.” – George Eliot
My friends know of my love for coffee and music, especially the blues. That being said, my favorite and Atlanta’s favorite blues band of the year for many years 2011-2018, is the Mike Watson Band.
I love to listen to Mike Watson especially when I’m traveling. His music is soothing especially when I’m lost, even with my GPS. I always remind myself when traveling in the south, that when I see the Chattahoochee River, I can’t be that far off track.
Here’s one of my favorite studio-produced MWB CD’s – Down to the River. For the upcoming holidays’ order Santa’s On His Way from iTunes and more original music. Take a listen to his music and order yours today. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks, Carolyn
