Book Description

As far as twelve-year old Quinn is concerned Christmas has lost its magic. Since his father’s death life has lost its sparkle. His mom is now a widow struggling to put food on the table. Quinn is no help, and the mysterious illness afflicting him only makes things worse. Even Christmas, complete with decorated trees, ribbons and bows has no meaning…then along comes Jazira.
Jazira doesn’t know what happened to her former self, the eleven-year old little girl. She drowned, didn’t she, along with half the other folk of Bandit Creek in 1911? Somehow, she’s grown four furry legs complimented with a large wolf head and body. Scared and alone, she reaches out to Quinn and a strong bond is formed. Jazira learns Quinn, and his mother, are threatened by a wealthy powerful citizen of Bandit Creek. She is determined to protect her new family, no matter what.

Christmas Eve finds Quinn staring up at the adorned tree and muttering a quiet prayer. Will the Spirits of Christmas grant his wish, or will the evil surrounding Bandit Creek prevail once again?

ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE BANDIT CREEK SERIES:

LOST by Vivi Anna
SIREN'S SONG by DL Snow

About the Author

I have always believed in fairy tales and when I got tired of the old ones I made up my own. Each story would have a hero and heroine, but they were anything but typical. I devoured my first romance novel when I was a teenager. I couldn’t read them fast enough. Years later I stumbled across my first paranormal romance…an injustice would be done if I tried to explain my joy when I found this genre of romance. My passion was finally in print. Now, with the help of my bizarre dreams and crazy imagination, I have started to write and intend to share my stories with you. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do. I am truly blessed. My husband and my animals are my inspiration. We live on a small acreage in Didsbury, Alberta, with our most beloved companions, Dozer, Daisy and Mandarin. Happy reading everyone, I sure would love to hear from you. www.lawnamackie.ca QUINN’S CHRISTMAS WISH – December 1, 2011 available through Amazon and Smashwords.

4.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down December 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Quinn's Christmas Wish today and thoroughly enjoyed it. An intriguing story about life in a small Montana town after most of it was wiped out by a flood. The book explored the impact of those events on a 12 year old boy and his mother. I found the sex/relationship between the mother and the newcomer to town a little too quick for my taste, but it is a novella, so everything happens in a hurry. That being said, the author did a masterful job of getting enough details and emotions to make this book an entertaining read.

Other than the speed of the romance between the boys' mother and the trapper, I can't suggest anything to improve. Engaging characters responding appropriately in a difficult circumstance in a historical novel.

and just enough of the paranormal to keep my interest without turning me off.

well done Ms Mackie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tears for Quinn November 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Loved this book! The connection between Samuel and Amanda was immediate. Such a fiery romance between the two. Poor Quinn with all his trials and heartbreak at least is finally able to find a friend in the most unlikely place, Jazira, a fantastical talking wolf. Jazira is able to survive in this world only due to the kindness of Quinn, Samuel and Amanda, but gives back more than what she has received. Lawna made me cry twice with this story, once in despair, and then again in happiness! Looking forward to Ms. Mackie's other two books coming out in December and January, and looking forward to more Bandit Creek Books!

Ms. Mackie weaves a tale of hardship and love with a mix of mystery and a surprising twist thrown in at the end. A great read for young and old alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quinn's Christmas Wish (Bandit Creek Books) January 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So many times as of late I have started to read a new book that seems to ramble and get lost in words without any real meaning. Quinn's Christmas Wish was not like this at all. My interest was peaked right at the start as the tale was spun into a very good - what I would call; a paranormal suspense!

I was intrigued with Jazira and with Quinn right out of the gate. There was no lapse in reading and the feeling where you wonder so often - 'is it going to get somewhere?' Not the case here! I was immersed into the story and found that I had to keep going back and picking it up every chance I could until I found the hours ticking well past 3:00am.

Set in the world of the early west when trappers and settlers forged new lives. I became immediately connected with Quinn and his mother Amanda. The tale was rich with descriptions that drew me into a world both believable and yet not that surreal for a paranormal. If it wasn't for Jazira - I would have thought it to be a wonderful and heart warming historical romance. Yet..., there she was - Jazira. Her plight more than once gave cause for my heart to skip a beat or two and as I do not want to give anything away in this wonderful tale; can only say I was very pleased with the outcome and yes, there were a few nice surprises. Bandit Creek does indeed keep you guessing.

As a reader who wants to be carried away and lost into the depths of tales of love, suspense and intrigue, I would be remiss if I did not say that this story warmed my soul on a cold prairie night.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Holiday Must Read! December 3, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's December and, in keeping with the holiday season, I have come across a book that is all about Christmas. Quinn's Christmas Wish is a cute story about love, trust, and friendship. The type of story you just want to snuggle up with on a cold winter's day with heavy snowflakes slowly falling from the sky and a cup of hot cocoa sitting beside you. You know what? That is exactly what I did. The story is short, but one where the reader quickly falls in love with Quinn, Amanda, and the handsome trapper Samuel. The trio makes for a quaint family scene, despite Samuel being new in the neighborhood. Set in 1912, the townsfolk of Bandit Creek are what you would expect from a small town. Everyone knows one another and people are happy to help each other.

Then Jazira comes along. She is an eleven-year-old girl turned into a very large wolf after having drowned in the town's flood the previous year. She is saved from Lost Lake by Samuel and then befriends Quinn. The two quickly become the best of friends, but things turn sour when the townspeople want her dead. Jazira quickly settles in your heart and you find yourself rooting for her.

There is one minor character I enjoyed that makes repeated appearances, named Jack, who is constantly drunk, and spews out 'warnings' or 'predictions' by spitting his whiskey in the snow and looking at the pattern. This lovable village shaman is just another dimension the author has added to a charming story filled with emotion.

The antagonist is the rich and powerful Mr. Ellis who wants Amanda as his wife. He's even willing to have his son beat up Quinn to make Amanda agree to this arrangement. So you can imagine what he thinks when he finds the very handsome...didn't I say that before? Yes, I did, as I was saying...
