Daddy's Christmas Angel Released on Amazon

Daddy's Christmas Angel, the heart-warming story of a little girl who plots to connect her daddy and her teacher in a romantic relationship, has been released and is available now on Amazon This is my "Sleepless in Seattle"-inspired story.

For my new book, I was delighted with these endorsements from early readers:

"The holidays are all about possibilities and magic and Mary Montague Sikes weaves a tale of grief, finding your way in new surroundings, and a little girl's wish to Santa for a mother. Toss in a Christmas play, a blue angel and soft bunny. I wanted a book for relaxing. What a gift I received with characters I cheered for from the little girl's letter in the prologue until the final page. I wanted to savor and instead I couldn't put it down. It made me believe in miracles again and now I can't wait for my own piece of Christmas magic. If you want a read to put you in the spirit of the holidays, this one is the perfect present." –W. S. Gager, author of the Mitch Malone Mystery series.

 "Daddy's Christmas Angel is a treat for every reader and not just for the holidays. This charming book is for everyone who believes love is the ultimate gift." --Lorna Collins, author of Ghost Writer and other titles.

F. M. Meredith, author of No Bells, calls Daddy's Christmas Angel an "enchanting romance kindled by a daughter for her father and her teacher."

Here is a link to an article in The Tidewater Review about my new book. I was excited to see this on the Internet.

Daddy's Christmas Angel is a book of my heart. What gift is more important than love, no matter what the season?
