**Q&A with Magan Vernon**

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Drinking hot cocoa and driving through neighborhoods to look at the holiday decorations

What is your most unusual holiday memory?

Kind of morbid, but about six years ago my Nanu had a massive stroke three days before Christmas he had a massive stroke and then the next day my father had his third heart attack. Christmas was spent going between two hospitals in town. It was nuts.

What was your favorite moment under the mistletoe?

I’ve never been under the mistletoe 🙁

What’s your favorite Christmas carol or holiday movie?

True story, I used to be obsessed with the Whitney Houston/ Denzel Washington movie The Preacher’s Wife.

What’s the sexiest gift you ever got/gave?

I’ve never really received a sexy gift. My husband should get on that.

This or That?

Peppermint Mocha or Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

PSL is my addiction.

Egg Nog or Apple Cider?

Apple Cider.

Themed Christmas Tree or HodgePodge?

Hodge Podge that is half decorated (two kids under three and a dog means the bottom half doesn’t have any ornaments)

Old School Bulbs or Icicle Lights?

Icicle lights

During this Holiday Season, is it better to Give or Receive?

I absolutely LOVE shopping for my kids and niece and nephew. I was uber excited to buy a little kids toy blow torch for my nephew this year

Etta Davis didn’t have showing a house penciled into her Christmas plans, but with the other realtors already off enjoying their holiday, she’d been stuck with the task. It wasn’t all bad though, the house up for grabs used to belong to the family of her high school sweetheart, Andrew Lawson. Though now dilapidated, thanks to its current owners, it still held the power to bring back forgotten memories and turn the routine showing into something else entirely. Particularly when Andrew shows up, wanting to buy the house. Now Etta must decide whether a second chance is worth taking the house, and her heart, off the market.
