*a connecting series to the Three Rivers Romance series*

For Brodie McFadden and Dakota McCoy, the Christmas holiday should be simply magical.

They’ve made the decision on their wedding—Christmas Eve out in central Virginia at the newly renovated historic lodge belonging to old friends. As many members of the Krewe who can show up will, Kody’s friends and family will be up from Key West, and while Brodie’s diva mom and patient dad are dead, they’ll still make an appearance.

It will be wonderful.

But then, chopping wood and waiting for Kody to arrive, Brodie hears a police-bulletin on the airwaves about a large white rabbit in a gas mask carrying a machete—correction! A man in a large white rabbit costume, etcetera!

Driving through the snow-covered countryside, Kody has little on her mind other than the festivities about to take place—until she almost runs right into the rabbit. His warning for her not to move forward proves to be solid when an explosion rears through the road.

The rabbit proves to be Captain Lynch, a soldier suffering from PTSD, and he’s escaped from a nearby hospital.

But who is telling the truth? The rabbit—or the doctors?

Brodie and Kody must discover the truth if there is to be a wedding—and to bring back Peace and Goodwill to Man!

There are two novella holiday tales that connect to the McFadden Brothers trilogy in the overall Krewe of Hunters series.  Those novellas are Haunted Be the Holidays (a Halloween theme) and Christmas, the Krewe and a Large White Rabbit (a Christmas theme & Brodie & Kody’s wedding).  The novellas take place after the conclusion of Echoes of Evil. The titles within the main trilogy include — Fade to Black – Pale as Death – Echoes of Evil.

On the run with his daughter, he ends up in Creede, Colorado and takes on a new role as owner of a garment business, thanks to his now son-in-law. Though life will never be what it was, his world begins to look brighter until he meets the outspoken, passionate, and no-nonsense firecracker who is nothing like his wife.

When Hal starts spending more time with Frances, will he be able to let his guard down enough to invite a woman into his heart once more? Will Frances convince Hal to let go of his bitterness? Will the Pennyworths be able to convince them both that love is better the second time around?
