First Book of The Year 2022 Edition

The totally amazing and incredible Sheila from Book Journey is once again organizing the First Book of The Year 2022 edition. This is Sheila’s 9th year of hosting this yearly event.

This is my 9th year taking part in the  First Book of the Year.

First Book is the first book you plan on reading in the New Year.  It can be a long-coveted read you have not had time for, guilty pleasure read like a re-read of a favorite…  really it can be anything – it is, after all, YOUR First Book.

The book I plan on starting the New Year with is:




Title: New Year’s Kiss
Author: Lee Matthews
Pub Date: December 2020

About the Book:

If your New Year’s resolution was to find the perfect upbeat romance read…this is it! Tess is ready to ring in the new year–will she have a new boy by her side?


Tess and her opinionated older sister Lauren are spending the week after Christmas at the snowy Evergreen Lodge in Vermont–and they aren’t happy about it. Their stern grandmother, who owns the holiday resort, is not known for her warmth and good humor. But when shy, straight-laced Tess meets Christopher in the lobby, things are suddenly looking up.

Then, Tess decides to get out of her comfort zone and create a bucket list of things to accomplish before the New Year-like singing in public and skiing a black-diamond slope. And Christopher is happy to help, even as he keeps a secret that could turn everything upside down. When the ball drops, will Tess and Christopher share a magical kiss-or will Tess start the new year off alone?
