Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

Perfectly Christmas by Linda O’Connor

Genre Romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

On the first day of Christmas, his true love said to him, “Sorry, I have to work.”

That’s the life of a surgeon, and Dr Madison Hayes wouldn’t have it any other way.

Dr Quinn Malone has another priority. In the countdown to Christmas, he needs to convince his old flame that there’s more to life – and love – than the job itself.

This time, his heart is in it for the long haul. Really.

Romantic and … complicated – it’s Perfectly Christmas!

Know the Heroine from Perfectly Christmas

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Builds a fire in the fireplace and cozies up with the latest issue of A Bit about Drills.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Pizza from Pizza Heaven in Strathaven. If she can get out of making dinner, she’s all over it.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

In the operating room, she’s in surgical greens. At home, it’s comfy sweat pants and an oversized sweatshirt.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s a master with a drill – it’s been a hobby for years. If it can be fixed with a drill, she’s your woman.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

She’s not a huge fan of the Secret Santa gift exchange. Buying gifts that people don’t need and want even less is not exactly her cup of tea. But she’s trying to fit into small-town Strathaven so she agrees to participate. Whose name does she pull out of the hat? None other than her old flame Quinn Malone. Groan. Now she has three weeks to make a homemade gift for him. The silver lining is that she’ll be able to use her drill – soap on a rope anyone?

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She’s used to putting patients, including children, quickly at ease.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

She’s an early riser – all those years of 6 a.m rounds at the hospital have molded her into an early bird.

Can she use chopsticks?

Yes. She’s a surgeon with superior fine motor skills – chopsticks are a piece of cake.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee – black. Quick and easy – and it means less grocery shopping.

What apps would she have on her phone?

CPS (Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties), UptoDate, Mobile Banking, Grey’s Anatomy, Fundamentals of Surgery, A Bit about Drills

Android or iPhone?


Earrings or unpierced ears?

Earrings – discrete turquoise crystals are her fav.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Her own CRV that she can pack all her belongings in – handy when she moves from small town to small town. But in Strathaven, the car stays parked in her garage, and everything is close enough to walk.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle (always).

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
