Breck Lansing gave up on relationships after his wife, unable to cope with their daughter’s illness, left him. But the pretty blonde he rescues from a snowstorm has him rethinking his stance—especially when Quinn’s arrival coincides with a dramatic change in Sophie’s health.
Unfortunately, that change also attracts something only whispered about in folklore. Together, Quinn and Breck must defeat a sinister creature intent on claiming the ultimate payment.
Warning: A clever black cat, Christmas magic and paranormal trouble
What reviewers and readers are saying about FOOD FOR POE:
“Another good read from Mae Clair. Food for Poe fills the reader with a wonderful sense and spirit of Christmas. The themes of love and family are weaved throughout the story and then spiced with a dose of the supernatural. So much feeling packed into a short read, and as a cat lover it was especially enjoyable.”

“Snow fell in well-defined flakes, delicate as lace, while I read Food for Poe, a charming Christmas novella, whose title takes on a whole new—and mischievous—meaning once the book is consumed.
The story unfolds as a blizzard engulfs the characters, embracing them in a magical tale of miracles, love, renewal, and romance. With Mae Claire’s unique ability to weave romantic suspense with an ample serving of the fantastical, this novella makes the perfect companion for a wintry afternoon, curled up next to the fireplace, sipping on hot chocolate.
Full of the wonder of the season, it transports the reader to a place where anything is possible, even a cat capable of an extraordinary miracle.”

“This story is full of everything I love in a novella–love, mystery, lore, even an adorable and fiercely loyal pet. The only thing I would change is to make it a novel rather than a novella, because I just didn’t want to leave these characters behind. The heroine has true tragedies in her past. The hero, too. And he is a hero in the truest sense of the word. The villain is creepy, frightening. The secondary characters are also quite likable. And the superstition behind the story is well developed and quite interesting. All told, Food for Poe is a heartwarming tale; a perfect selection for the holiday season.”

“I love Christmas and being a hopeless romantic to boot, I especially love stories of two people coming together on Christmas! A winter snow storm brings our heroine, Quinn face to face with Breck, our handsome hero. From there, the magic and miracles so often associated with Christmas begin. Did I mention the black cat? Well, Poe has his share of magic too in this enchanted tale that is perfect for the Christmas holidays and every day thereafter. Get yourself a copy, something warm to drink, snuggle down, and enjoy this bewitching story you’ll want to read again and again!”
