New: Seabreeze Christmas, A Heartwarming Holiday Novel

Seabreeze Christmas womens fiction by Jan Moran. Red umbreella on a blue beach.If you're looking for a sweet, feel-good holiday saga, you'll find that in Seabreeze Christmas. This charming women's fiction story can be read as a standalone or as part of the Summer Beach series. From a family reunion for Thanksgiving to ice skating by the beach (yes, that's a thing) with hot chocolate and hugs, this holiday saga has all the heartwarming moments you could want. With such a challenging year drawing to a close, I thought we could all use a double helping of happiness and cheer. In Seabreeze Christmas, you'll find good friends, hidden surprises, mysterious guests, and a dash of romance.

A Sweet Holiday Story

Seabreeze Christmas is based on Ivy Bay, a young, 45 year-old-widow whose husband blew their retirement fund on a sprawling historic beach house abandoned for decades. As an art teacher with two daughters–one in college, one just graduated–Ivy is forced to reimagine her life. With her sister Shelly, Ivy returns to southern California from the east coast to assess this historical relic from another era.

In Summer Beach, just north of where they spent their childhood, the two women work together to transform the historic home into the Seabreeze Inn. As luck would have it, the mayor of Summer Beach is Ivy's old teenage crush. The former owners were also avid art collectors from Europe, and the old beach house harbors long-forgotten secrets. While Ivy and Shelly managed to make it through their first busy summer as innkeepers, the quiet winter season presents a new set of challenges. In Seabreeze Christmas, family, guests, and residents come together in a heartwarming holiday story that will be long cherished.

Seabreeze Christmas – Backstory

AE3DBEC5 A674 4957 9DE6 55CF34070BC7 1 105 cSince I wrote Seabreeze Christmas during the pandemic (at an outdoor table by a friend's pool in L.A–complete with Christmas music and hot chocolate in a reindeer mug), I wanted to make it extra heartfelt. Many of the activities and experiences included are ones I've had the good fortune of having in Southern California over the years. This year, more than ever, I'm thankful for so many good memories.

We'll have a small holiday season this year, but that's the thing about books–with a good book in hand, you're never really alone. Together, we're muddling through this once-in-hundred-year pandemic (how we hope it is!). Yes, we're in this together, writing and reading, supporting each other through it all. This year, I'm so grateful to have come to know more of you online, and I'll keep writing for you because I know how important it is to have books you can call friends. So this holiday season, let's celebrate our wonderful literary community. Cheers, and enjoy Seabreeze Christmas
