Love stories about old houses and family secrets.

December signifies a multitude of special moments for individuals from various walks of life. The foremost occasions that come to mind include Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice. Additionally, we have Bodhi Day, Yule, and New Year’s Eve. Regardless of the celebrations you may partake in, this quote encapsulates the enchantment of these thirty-one remarkable days:

“December is a simple wish that brings spectacular moments.” – Unknown

My simple wish for December is time with family and friends, laughing and loving the beauty of the season. And the spectacular moments have so far included the Mistletoe Market, the town parade (definitely spectacular)! More spectacular moments will be putting up the tree, visiting family and enjoying a glass of egg nog (0r two).

How about you, my friends? What are your simple wishes and spectacular moments?


This year I decided to make my New Year’s resolutions early. I mean, why do we have to do them after January first? Every day can be the day that we choose to start a better habit, every day can be a day to reorganize, to declutter, to make our lives more beautiful in the tiniest way. Every day is a good day to make resolutions, and celebrate all the good things in our lives.

Luckily, I was able to find a quote that reflects this philosophy:

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson (Society and Solitude)

Happy November, my friends! When do you like to make your resolutions?


As you may (or may not) know, Still Waters is a romantic novel set in 1956 in Arlington, Virginia. But the Angel River series is set in a fictional small town several hours from Arlington. If you’ve been curious about how these stories are connected, the answer can be found in some free extra content that’s available online. You can find it for free via Bookfunnel. Or you can send me an email (misha@mishacrews.com) and I’ll help you get it.

Still Waters is the fifth novel in the standalone series about Angel River, a small town with big secrets, and even bigger hearts. This series can be read in any order. Find it on Amazon in Kindle and paperback, and order autographed copies from my website. I hope you’ll check it out and let me know what you think. 🥰📚🧡 Happy Reading!
