It’s Christmas 1940 and Nimway Hall opens its ancient and enchant­i­ng heart to the wed­ding of Josie and Gideon!

Engaged to be mar­ried in the final, steamy love scene in THE LEGEND OF NIMWAY HALL: 1940 — JOSIE, wartime intel­li­gence agents, Josie and Gideon, are in for a wild adven­ture as they nego­ti­ate the hid­den dan­gers of plan­ning a wed­ding in the midst of a war.

HEROES ON THE HOME FRONT “…I loved the wartime set­ting of this Nimway saga. Ms. Needham’s pro­tag­o­nists are believ­able char­ac­ters with strengths and fol­lies com­mon to all of us. It was cer­tain­ly fun to see the ancient won­der of Nimue jux­ta­posed against World War II. I found Josie and Gideon very wor­thy addi­tions to the Legend.” Lise Smith, Amazon Reader, 5-stars

I loved Josie and I loved the Colonel and I loved the plot and I loved her father and hon­est­ly I just loved this book—” Iza Soares, Goodreads, 5-stars

Josie and Gideon both had a lot of depth and were very well matched. It was also great to see that Nimway was still thriv­ing almost 200 years lat­er; mod­ern­ized but didn’t lose any of its charm!” Rowena Klein, Goodreads, 5-stars
