Lisa Regan came sliding down my chimney...I KNOW...I was shocked too!!

 She wanted to bring her lists of festive favorites to help you get in the holiday mood. 

And...once you're in the mood, she hopes you may want to do a little shopping. And let's see, what might you want to buy? Hmmm...I know! "Finding Claire Fletcher" is an excellent stocking stuffer!!

Total truth: I opened my copy of Finding Claire, but just to skim the first page because I am so way behind in the to-do list...well, before I knew it I was in the middle of chapter three. Thanks Lisa. The kids didn't get cookies...all thanks to you!

Enough of me whining!! Here's Lisa's Lists:

Top 10 Christmas Songs

1.      Twelve Days of Christmas  - It’s so fun to sing!
2.      Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – I can remember the words and it has a lesson: sometimes what others perceive as your weakness can be your greatest strength.
3.      Santa Claus Is Coming to Town – I can remember the words!
4.      All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey  - Cheesy, I know, but come on!  It’s so catchy!
5.     Run Run Rudolph by Luke Bryan – cause that dude can sing anything
6.      Wintersong by Sara McLachlan – sad, I know but so pretty too!
7.      Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer – come on, that’s so fun!
8.      White Christmas – cause who isn’t dreaming of one?
9.      Last Christmas by Wham – again, so catchy!
10.  Dominic the Donkey – cause my husband loves this one and I love him!
Top 10 Christmas Movies
1.      Elf – it’s hilarious and sweet and when my daughter was two we had to watch this on a loop for about six months!
2.      Badder Santa – yes, it is crass and appalling but also hilarious.
3.      Braveheart – okay, okay, it’s not a Christmas movie but in my family we had a tradition where we watched it every Christmas.  I don’t know why but now I associate it with Christmas! 
4.      Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys – good childhood memories!
5.      National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – a classic and oh so funny!
6.      Love, Actually.  Had to get a Romantic Comedy in there.  Love that movie!
7.      How the Grinch Stole Christmas – such a classic!
8.      Four Christmases – Contemporary, funny, and I relate to the fractured families!
9.      The Family Stone – again, not specifically a Christmas movie but it takes place at Christmas and it’s a great movie about families.
10.  Merry Madagascar – very funny!

You're in the mood and ready to shop, right? Well, here's all you need to know:

Below I am pasting both a long and short synopsis.  Feel free to use the short one if you think the long one will make your post too long.

SYNOPSIS

Newly divorced and with his career in jeopardy, Detective Connor Parks takes solace in the arms of a beautiful woman he meets at a bar. The next morning, Claire Fletcher is gone, leaving nothing behind but an address and a decade-old mystery. The address leads to the Fletcher family home where Claire’s siblings inform Connor that their fifteen-year-old sister was abducted from a city street ten years ago and is presumed dead.

During those ten years, Claire endured the cruel torture and depravity of the man who abducted her. Paralyzed by fear and too ashamed to return to her family, Claire is resigned to her life as Lynn, the identity her abductor forced upon her. Every time she attempts escape or betrays him in the smallest way, someone dies. Even now, her clandestine run-in with Connor Parks may have put his life at risk, as well as the lives of her family.

Connor is convinced that not only is Claire Fletcher alive, but that she is also the woman he met at the bar. Driven to see her again, he begins his own investigation, off the clock and without the police department's consent. He is determined to find her and unravel the mystery of her abduction and odd reemergence. But finding Claire Fletcher proves more dangerous than he anticipates. In fact, it may be deadly.

SYNOPSIS

Down on his luck, Detective Connor Parks takes solace in the arms of a woman he meets at a local bar, but in the morning, Claire Fletcher is gone, leaving behind clues to a decade-old mystery. Abducted at age fifteen, no one has heard from Claire Fletcher in ten years.  Until now.  Driven by an unsettling need to see Claire again, Connor sets out to solve the mystery of her disappearance once and for all.

  1. The original Grinch is indeed a classic. And I never tarnished it by watching the one with Jim Carrey.

  8. That's why I won't have a chimney. Funny way to introduce yourself. Congrats Lisa and nice song list. I love the Irish version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. with the poor mother taking the Valium and the son cussing the woman who sent the gifts. Hilarious! The original is very nice but I just the other version better.
