Guest Post w/ Debbie Mason-- The best of Christmas, CO + giveaway!

Morning Yall! Today we've got Debbie Mason joining us! She wrote an awesome Christmas romance that takes place in a little town called... Christmas. Check out her post on the best reasons for living in this quirky, crazy little town and leave her some Christmas love :)

Resort developer Madison Lane is about to lose the one thing she loves most in the world—her job. Dubbed "The Grinch Who Killed Christmas," Madison spoiled a deal that would turn quaint Christmas, Colorado, into a tourist's winter wonderland. Now the citizens want her fired but the company gives her one last chance, sending Madison to the small town to restore the holiday cheer.

For Sheriff Gage McBride, no hotshot executive from New York City is going to destroy the dreams of the people he loves. But one look at this beautiful woman and it's his heart that may be broken. In just a few days, Madison causes more trouble than he's had to deal with all year. He can't decide if she's naughty or nice, but one thing is for certain—Christmas will never be the same again...

5 best reasons for living in Christmas, Co at Christmas time

1) If you love the holidays, there's no better place to live than in Christmas, Colorado.
The town kicks-off their month-long celebration at the end of November.  In an evening procession, carolers lead citizens and visitors down Main Street to the town square for the lighting of a twenty-foot Douglas fir. Every year, as if by magic, snow lightly starts to fall as everyone stands around the tree holding hands singing  "Oh Christmas Tree."

2) A walk down Main Street is guaranteed to put anyone in the holiday spirit. The quaint, pastel-painted shops and their holiday-themed window displays, antique streetlamps festooned with wreaths and bright red bows remind you of a time gone by. The pace is slower here, people are friendlier and always willing to lend a helping hand.

3) Once you've loaded up with your one-of-a-kind presents, a stop at the Sugar Plum Bakery is a must. The shop smells like Christmas, and owner Grace Flaherty makes the best gingerbread cupcakes and sugar cookies in all of Colorado. And if Grace has her signature cake for sale, be sure to buy one. Rumor has it that wishes in the chocolate sugar plum come true.

4) Nestled in a valley surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, you have the best holiday stress therapy right at your door. If taking a walk in this winter wonderland doesn't alleviate your stress and lift your spirits, there are plenty of other activities that will. And if tobogganing, skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing aren't your cup of tea, I highly recommend a dog sled ride with Santa look-alike Coulter Dane. Then cap off your day with some holiday cheer at The Penalty Box. Sawyer Anderson isn't only scrumptious to look at, he makes the best hot buttered rum in town.

5) And the best kept secret about Christmas . . . the ratio of single men to women is 3:1. Single, jaw-droppingly  gorgeous men. So pack your bags, ladies. Resident matchmaker Nell McBride has plenty of mistletoe on hand.
