New Book by Suzanne Stengl – A Wedding and a White Christmas


Suzanne Stengl releases her new novel, “A Wedding and a White Christmas”

Getting from “I do” to “I don’t” before anyone finds out! 

On a whirlwind Christmas visit to Las Vegas, and after a long night of merrymaking, Emily and her best friend, Mark, stumble into an Elvis Chapel and get married. The next morning she realizes her mistake. Although she loves Mark, and has since childhood, he’s not marriage material.

For Mark, it’s not that he has commitment issues—or any issues, for that matter—but marriage would complicate things. He and Emily are friends and he doesn’t want to mess with that. Besides, he knows Emily is on the rebound. She’s not over her failed engagement to Dan the idiot.

On top of that, there’s Emily’s aunt. Myra doesn’t like Mark and if she learns about this elopement . . . well, let’s just say, there will be no Peace on Earth this Christmas!

“Bringing Jamie Home” Trilogy by Sherile Reilly

Hello ARWA members and fellow book lovers. I have some exciting news to share with you. I’ve finished my trilogy!

I’m participating as one of the local artists in the Christmas Varsity Craft Show on the third weekend of November.  I’ll be showcasing my books and paintings. I would love for you to join me at the show and help me celebrate the release of my trilogy: Bringing Jamie Home.

When a commitment-shy-woman’s high school crush foists a rambunctious nine-year-old orphaned boy and his clever sheep dog on her, life becomes chaotic and love becomes irresistible.

The Varsity Craft Show is at the Varsity Community Association at:
4303 Varsity Drive NW on Friday, Nov. 17 from 3:00 to 8:00 pm and on Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm.
Don’t forget to mark this on your calendar. Just in case you’ll be Christmas shopping, please be aware that the community centre is cash only.

See you there.
Sherile Reilly
