Sweet Success for J.D.R. Hawkins!


Just in time for Christmas! J.D.R. Hawkins would like to announce the publication of her new book, A BECHARMED CALLIE CHRISTMAS. This is a short story about one of the minor characters in the Renegade Series.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Callie Mae Copeland is the only child of affluent land owner, Sullivan Copeland, and his wife, Faye. Because Callie has been doted on her entire life, she is pampered and outspoken. Although the Civil War is looming and is in its second year, it hasn’t affected the Copelands or their neighbors in north Alabama too much yet.

Once she turns sixteen, Callie realizes her influence over boys her age and uses her flirtatious graces to her advantage. She turns her sights on Christmas and is determined to do everything in her power to make the Copeland’s annual Christmas party a success.

But following the party, Callie is abruptly faced with the realization that the war is closer than she imagined, and everything is uncertain. Will this be the last Christmas she will ever see in her family’s old antebellum home? Will anything ever be the same again? Purchase a copy through Amazon.
