Keep Me Warm at Christmas

Silver Springs Series, Book 9

Maybe this Christmas can thaw his frozen heart—and heal hers.

Hollywood starlet Tia Beckett knows one moment can change your life. Her career had been on the fast track before a near-fatal accident left her with a debilitating facial scar. Certain her A-lister dreams are over, she agrees to house-sit at her producer’s secluded estate in Silver Springs. It’s the escape from the limelight Tia’s been craving, until she discovers she’s not the only houseguest for the holidays. And her handsome new roomie is impossible to ignore.

Artist Seth Turner has good reason to keep his distance. Losing his wife after only a few years of marriage has left a deep scar, even if he is still happy to spend a semester teaching art classes at the New Horizons Boys Ranch for troubled teens. Despite nursing her own wounds, Tia finds her curiosity piqued by enigmatic Seth, whom she recognizes as something of a kindred soul. Maybe spending Christmas together could be another game changer for both of them—this time, for good.

News & Newsworthy



I’m so excited to reveal the cover for my next trade release, SUMMER ON THE ISLAND. I love, love the way this story turned out, so I was really hoping for a nice cover, and I think my publisher did an excellent job! What do you think? Can’t you just feel the emotion on the woman’s face as she looks out to sea? This book won’t be released until April 5, 2022, but it’s already up for preorder—just in case you want to make sure it delivers to your house or your device on release day. 😉

The early reviews for THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH are in! Not only got it a starred review from Publishers’ Weekly, it has also been selected as one of the best books of the month by Amazon AND Apple Books. I think the review written by the editor at Apple is my favorite so far:

“With more than 60 novels to her name, Brenda Novak knows her way around a juicy family drama, and her latest delivers exactly that. Still reeling from her husband’s sudden disappearance more than a year ago, Autumn brings her two teenage children to stay with her mother in her seaside hometown. This homecoming sets the stage for the rekindling of a high-school romance and the slow reveal of a devastating, long-held secret—not to mention a slew of other great twists. As Novak’s relatable cast of characters fall in love and navigate a range of serious issues, she presents their stories with an abundance of heart and humor. THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH is an escapist treat with emotional heft.”

Brenda Novak Book Boxes

These have been a HUGE hit! What’s inside? That’s different every month, but I can tell you this much — they will contain a print copy of the book we are reading for that month (autographed by the author!) or a substitute book of mine (generally one that is hard to find), at least two of my favorite things and a surprise gift that you won’t know about until you receive the box. One random person each month will receive an even “bigger” mystery gift. We will announce the contents for the next box at the first of each month, and you will be able to order it then or the day after (providing they’re not all gone). Payment is due by the 7th of the month. The box ships three weeks later, on the first of the following month. We sell out every month, so grab yours early.
