Sourcebooks Casablanca Holiday Hop 2015 + Giveaway
Christmas is just around the corner and romance novelists Samantha Chase, Kim Redford and Terry Spear are here to help get you in the holiday spirit. We’ve asked them all to share their characters’ favorite holiday movies – as well as their own!
I am all about laughing and comedies and my all-time FAVORITE holiday movie is “Scrooged” with Bill Murray. We quote it year-round but we watch it as a family on Christmas. It’s the perfect remake to “A Christmas Carol” mainly because it’s so relatable! And hysterical.
My heroine’s family has a tradition of watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” on Thanksgiving to help them gear up for the Christmas season. So it’s naturally a favorite. But I think this year she may love it even more since she had the opportunity to snuggle up to Ean while watching it.
My heroine’s favorite is A Christmas Carol based on the timeless story by Charles Dickens because Misty undergoes a wonderful transformation just like Ebenezer Scrooge to find happiness in life and the holiday.
My hero, Trey, likes Christmas Westerns. 3 Godfathers (1948) is John Ford’s three wise men allegory starring John Wayne, Harry Carey, Jr., and Pedro Armendáriz as three bank robbers who discover a stranded wagon that contains an orphaned newborn baby. They’re determined to get the child to safety even as they’re chased by a sheriff.
Terry Spear (A Silver Wolf Christmas - NOR 4.5 Stars / Top Pick):
I love several. But my favorite would be “A Christmas Story.” I faced down a bully once after school, only I wouldn’t move out of his way and he hit me in the face and knocked me down. But I always was proud of myself for making a stand against him. I remember vaguely being dressed like the younger brother and not being able to move in the snowsuit when I was little when we lived in Madison, Wisconsin. I recall how hard I worked on schoolwork and was shocked that my teachers didn’t always see my brilliance. I remember my grandmother sending my sister and me underwear for Christmas that were 15 sizes too big. We didn’t have to wear them, but we did have to thank her for the lovely gifts. We never had trouble with dogs when preparing Christmas dinner, but I did have a standard poodle that gobbled up a roast for dinner when I ran to get the kids at Sunday school once. So many of the things that happened were the same as the funny memories I’d had, and I loved it.
My hero and heroine love a variety of movies—“A Christmas Story,” “Jingle All the Way,” and “The Snowman,” for the music and lovely animation.
