Snippet Sunday: 99 cent Christmas romance: Christmas in Bayeux

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my Christmas Romances. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:

About this excerpt: Aiden is nervous about seeing Noel again. 


Bayeux was a small town, but it held the key to his battered heart. It was only seven kilometers from Omaha Beach, and the American World War II cemetery.
The streets narrowed as he drove into the town proper. Thank goodness for the mini GPS he had taken. The buildings were beige and grey, dull against the winter white clouds.
She promised to be there.
He turned onto a more prominent street and there it was; Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Bayeux. It was one of the oldest gothic churches in France. Noel Rousseau stood before the heavy wooden doors, her hands tucked under her armpits. She was the beautiful foreign exchange student he'd met years ago when she came to study with his family in America. 


The ravages of war have taken their toll on Aiden. Seeking peace, he has traveled to Bayeux, France, on a pilgrimage of sorts. Noel, a former exchange student who spent time with his family years before, provides him a place to stay at the old manor she has turned into an inn.
The attraction they felt nine years before at the tender age of sixteen flares to life as they spend time together and prepare the inn for Christmas. But there has been so much loss and grief for Aiden. Will Noel be able to help him feel again and can Aiden find what he is searching for?

  1. Second chance romance? I love those!

  2. Very atmospheric snippet and I felt as if I was there with him. I have to say that last sentence took me out of the flow though. I mean, he knows who she is so it felt odd to have this one sentence of 'telling'. Could you rework it so he's thinking something about her from when they were students maybe? But I enjoy the excerpt!

  3. I love Christmas stories and second chance romances, and your description is fab.
