About the Author

The daughter of a town marshal, Linda Lael Miller is the author of more than 100 historical and contemporary novels. Now living in Spokane, Washington, the “First Lady of the West” hit a career high when all three of her 2011 Creed Cowboy books debuted at #1 on the New York Times list. In 2007, the Romance Writers of America presented her their Lifetime Achievement Award. She personally funds her Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women. Visit her at LindaLaelMiller.com.

More About the Author

In January of 2006, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Linda Lael Miller left the Arizona horse property she's called home for the past five years and listened to the call of her heart. Packing up her work-in-progress for HQN Books; her dogs, Sadie and Bernice, and her four horses, the author of more than 70 novels bid farewell to her home in the desert and returned to the place of her birth, Spokane, Washington.
The daughter of a town marshal, Linda grew up in Northport, WA, a community of 500 on the Columbia River, 120 miles north of Spokane. Her childhood remembrances include riding horses and playing cowgirl on her grandparents' nearby farm. Her grandparents' spread was so rustic that in the early days it lacked electricity and running water.

As delightful as this childhood was, Linda longed to see the world. After graduating as valedictorian of her high school class, she left to pursue her dream. Because of the success of her author career, Linda was able to live part-time in London for several years, spend time in Italy and travel to such far-off destinations as Russia, Hong Kong and Israel. Now, Linda says, the wanderlust is (mostly) out of her blood, and she's come full circle, back to the people and the places she knows and loves.

Before Linda begins her writing day, she takes her first cup of coffee while enjoying the scenic view of the wooded draw behind her new home. The first morning there, a snowfall blanketed the pine trees, something she had missed in the desert outside Scottsdale. Still enamored with the people she came to love in Arizona, she says she will still set books in that starkly beautiful area, and, of course, in other stories the action will take place in Washington.

Devoted to helping others pursue their dreams, the author will launch her sixth round of Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women in May of this year. A talented speaker, she donates all her speaking honoraria to her scholarship fund. The stipends are awarded to women who seek to better their lot in life through education.

It's no wonder the protagonists in Miller's novels are women her readers admire for their honor, courage, trustworthiness, valor and determination to succeed, despite overwhelming odds. 'These qualities make them excellent role models for young women,' Miller explains. 'The male leads possess equally noble traits that today's woman would be delighted to find in her life's mate.'

The author traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she made her first sale.

Although Linda has written successfully in other genres, she is best known for stories set in the West'stories like McKETTRICK'S CHOICE (HQN Books March 2006 paperback); THE MAN FROM STONE CREEK (HQN, June 2006 hardcover) and that very first novel, FLETCHER'S WOMAN, which is being reissued in 2006. Her stories, set in yesterday's world, and today's, are historical romances, romantic thrillers, and other contemporary tales. They consistently score on prestigious national bestseller lists.

Linda has come a long way since leaving her sheltered life in Northport at age 18 to experience the world. 'Growing up in that time and place, in a family grounded in Western values, served me well,' she allows. 'And I'm happy to be back home.'

This is a reprint from 2 previous Christmas stories. Nothing new here. If you've already read them both, don't bother wasting your $ on this one.
If you haven't read either story, this is a good buy since it's 2 stories included in one book.

Holiday in Stone is actually two books. A Stone Creek Christmas which deals with Olivia who is a vet and can also talk to animals and Tanner who is building a new vet hospital in Stone Creek. The story deals with Olivia and Tanner and their families. Olivia is too busy to get romantically involved and Tanner, a widower with a daughter, is too busy to commit to a relationship. It seems that sparks fly when they are together. The next story At Home in Stone Creek is about Olivia's sister Ashley and her former love Jack. Jack has a mysterious past and someone is trying to kill him. He hides in Ahsley's Bed and Breakfast and they renew their love affair. When Jack suddenly leaves, Ahsley is once again alone and angry. Sounds like a Christmas story to me and it is. I really did like both.

Holiday in Stone Creek is just a way to make money by selling two old books in the guise of a new one. While the stories are good ones, be certain you haven't read them before you buy this book. I really resent this tactic whether it is by the publisher or the author. I shall be more careful in the future.

I am in love with this book series. Linda Lael Miller is awesome. The background with this family is a great help in reading about this family. You really get to know each character on a personal level.I really can't get enough.

A Stone Creek Christmas
My Rating for this book: B

Story Overview:
Stone Creek veterinarian Olivia O'Ballivan communicates easily with animals, but men are another story. Especially rugged architect-turned-rancher Tanner Quinn. Olivia's uncanny bond with his daughter Sophie's pony has him questioning her sanity, while she wonders if he's not just a drugstore cowboy. Then twelve-year-old Sophie conspires with Olivia to get Tanner into the spirit of Christmas. But will a holiday miracle transform the globe-trotting Tanner into a rancher--and family man--for all seasons?

My Review:
This was simply a sweet old-fashioned Christmas love story, featuring a broken-hearted widower (Tanner,) his 12 yo daughter (Sophie,) and the town veterinarian (Olivia.) There was a special sense of holiday magic in this book because Olivia can talk to animals which leads her to a lost reindeer at the start of the story. As a result, a character named Kris Kringle appears periodically and mysteriously throughout the novel. It adds a touch of whimsy to the novel, that at times, went a bit too far for me, but it was all for Christmas fun, I know.

I really liked what Sophie added to the story, but there were times that Tanner's overprotectiveness just didn't seem to make sense. Tanner's over-the-top reaction to her supposed danger, just didn't ring true to the actual circumstances. I don't think that it would have been that hard to fix the issues within that story and made this a really superb book, but as it stands, it just seemed a little off to me.

I did enjoy this book. There were little things that niggled at me, but overall it was a fun holiday read.

Linda Lael Miller is my favorite author when it comes to western romance.
I love the way she writes the series and ties everything together. It feels like your part of their family and I can't wait to get the next one. I hope their are more McKetricks ,O'Ballivans and Creeds. Can't get enough of them. Joanne

This was one of the Kindle deals for a day, and was offered around the holidays, so for $.99, how could I go wrong? It's a pretty typical story line for a light romance, but sometimes we all need something to read that isn't full of high drama and death and destruction. If you like light reading, with a happy ending, this one's for you.

Main characters are interesting people, not your average run-of-the-mill people.
