#WeWriWa Mistle Tow - #8Sunday Teaser 1

grinch emoticon Switching gears once again  and attempting to get into a holiday frame of mind— which isn't easy, here in Ontario with no snow yet and not a flake in the forecast, ☃️ it's shaping up to be a green Christmas even here in the great white north—This Sunday, I'm sharing a snippet from Mistle Tow, releasing this week.

Brant Holley wiped down the hood of his precious ‘66 Chevelle. The glossy black finish gleamed even under the dull fluorescent lights in the garage.

Off in the distance, in the house, the phone rang, but he made no attempt to get it. Eventually, the answering machine picked up.

“Brant? It’s Mom. Are you there? I thought I’d try one last time. I’m really hoping you reconsider joining us for Christmas dinner.”

Brant hopped in the car and cranked the engine, blocking his mother and everything else out.


The last thing Brantley Holley wants to do this year, is spend the holidays at home with his family.

In an attempt to move on from his failed marriage, Brant places the marital home on the market and also decides to clean house, ridding himself of any and all reminders. Although it wrecks him to do so, that includes selling his beloved ’66 Chevelle, which may also have contributed to the demise of his marriage.

Brant puts his baby up on the auction block at one of the premier auction houses— the auction to be held over the holidays. But instead of racking up needless extra miles on her, which might be a detriment to potential buyers, he hires a flatbed tow truck to convey his precious cargo from Philadelphia to Arizona.

But when the rollback shows up, Brant is totally unprepared for the sexy blonde bombshell in the red Santa hat, who steps out of the massive red tow truck.

All of a sudden the holidays are looking a whole lot more festive.

Hope you enjoyed the tease from Mistle Tow, out this Wednesday December 16th. Hop on over to WWW central for this week's list of Weekend Writing Warriors participants


  1. I am intrigued to find out why he is so determined to shut out his family. Great snippet. Looking forward to more! Hope you see some snow in time for Christmas, too. Happy Holidays!

  2. Something is up with him and his family this Christmas. Form the blurb it seems like his failed marriage is to blame. Sad he has to shut out everything to make it through the holidays. But everyone copes differently. Looking forward to more from this story!
