About this title:

Synopsis: As an introduction to her "Tales of the Dragonfly" novels, the author discusses her attempts to find meaning and self-worth as a caregiver for her severely autistic and mentally-impaired son; due to the lack of vocational programming available because of the Illinois budgetary crisis.  The state of Illinois now ranks in the top three worst states financially with a more than $13 billion budget deficit. With over 11,000 individuals on the PUNS waiting list in the spring of 2009, and no new statistics available, she expresses her doubts about the state's capability to realistically service their disabled.

From the Author: Emma Louise Fallon, aka Elf, has two wishes for Christmas.
Having spent the last few months bragging about her latest boyfriend,
who's turned out to be a womanizing cheat, one, she needs
to escape her well-meaning family, and, two, she needs to
avoid all men while she's in a man-hating mode.

But stranded in a cold isolated cabin,when her girlfriend is forced
to bail out on their vacation plans, Elf makesone more desperate wish:
Can she please learn how to build a fire before she freezes to death?

The solo rustic life is becoming all too much for her. She's convinced
that a stray cat, who has decided to keep her company,
has magical powers, that the local shop owners are secretly
Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and nothing can stop her from laughing when
the hot local Martian -come cop - come veterinarian -
introduces himself as Rudi. 
 
Will Elf need to break her rule about staying away from men,
and rely on this hunk for helping her start a fire?
Or, worse, yet, will she be able to control the fire
that Rudi's ignited in her?

Seventeen-year-old Jason Matthews made a wish when
he'd shared a kiss with Katherine Conlin
under the mistletoe at Dragonfly Pointe, fourteen years ago.

Now an Air Force Captain and wounded warrior,
he awakens in the hospital in Germany,
where his dreams have been invaded
by the girl from his past.

Once he returns home to the states,
Jason discovers that approaching Kat might
be a little more difficult than he'd thought,
since she's been in a long term relationship
for nearly two years.

But another year later, when Jason learns
Kat is on her way to the Dragonfly Pointe Inn
for the Christmas holidays, without her boyfriend,
he seizes the chance to be reacquainted.

Kat had been expecting a proposal this Christmas,
and when her boyfriend backs out, yet again,
on the carefully laid plans that she's made for them,
Kat realizes she probably wouldn't be happy with him anyway.

Kat has often wondered what happened to Jason Matthews,
the boy she'd made a wish with years ago,
and the last thing she expects is to run into him
again at the Dragonfly Pointe Inn.

Will there still be that special Christmas magic
between them, to make those long ago wishes come true?
