Oh my word, as my grandmother used to say. While I wouldn't personally categorized this as a romance novel, it is certainly full of learning to love. And even though I've never made a quilt, I could envision each step as the stories were shared. Sometimes we can only live life one day at a time, and The Christmas Quilt by Vannetta Chapman reminds us to enjoy each day as it comes.
Annie's life is deliciously full as the Christmas season approaches. She helps her husband, Samuel, attend to the community's minor medical needs. She occasionally assists Belinda, the local midwife, and most days, she finds herself delivering the buggy to her brother Adam. Annie s sister-in-law Leah is due to deliver their first child before Christmas morning, and Annie is determined to finish a crib quilt before the "boppli" arrives. With six weeks to go, she should have no problem . . . but God may have a different plan. Leah is rushed to the English hospital when the infant arrives early, and Annie discovers the Christmas quilt may hold a far greater significance than she ever imagined.Rating: 5 roses
Sweet romances always make me sigh, and this one is no different. In The Christmas Promise by Kimberly Rose Johnson draws us into Keira and Pete's romance, and shows us how they dealt with their issues with trust and fear. Time changes things for them as they learn to release the past and move forward. I enjoyed Ms. Johnson's debut novel and look forward to her next novel.
No matter how lovely Keira Noble's smile, or how adorable her four-year-old son. He's been down that road before and knows it can lead to a broken heart. But that doesn't mean he can't help the pretty widow find a puppy to put under the Christmas tree for her son….Pete claims he only wants to help her find the perfect gift for Cody. Yet Keira can't deny the tender feelings in his eyes whenever he looks at her. Could this handsome Scrooge have a change of heart, and create a new family for Christmas?

After several days of busy-ness, I decided to take the day off and enjoy a good book. I picked up High-Stakes Holiday Reunion by Christy Barritt. I have read several of her books in the past and knew I would enjoy it, and I was right. I read the whole book in a single day, and even when I walked away to do something else, I couldn't wait to get back to it.
If you enjoy romantic suspense, I think you'll like this too.
