These four writers have collaborated on a wonderful Christmas anthology and introduce us to Christmas in Jubilee:
Christmas in Jubilee--where life is a celebration!
The Best First Christmas by Melissa Klein
With a broken engagement and parents far away, Reverend Angie Duncan wants to skip all things red and green, Bethlehem and baby, merry and bright. Until...a man from the wrong side of Fancy Bluff Creek asks her to teach his nephew the true meaning of Christmas. Justin Brown and the boy could be her perfect holiday present.
Home For Christmas by Rachel W. Jones
New York newcomer Liz Marshall is torn about going home to houses aglow and a grand holiday table—but this Christmas won’t be the festive one she’s always known. And she can’t let her grieving mom down. After Mitchell Lang, her new boss, squelches her holiday plans, he transforms into her knight in jeans and a flannel shirt. Jubilee is the best place she could be on Christmas.
Christmas Present by Linda Joyce
Chelsea Cooper struggles to balance her pottery business with caring for her mother suffering from dementia. She doesn’t have time for parties, dates, and most of all falling in love—those are memories of holidays past. Celebrity chef Zachary Tanner is new in town and exploring his recently discovered roots. His interest in Chelsea isn’t whimsical, like some of his food. He’s determined to convince her that love is the best Christmas present.
A Farmhouse Noel by Leah Noel Sims
Tabby Larsen’s workload is longer than Santa’s “Nice” list. Devotion to her 200-year-old family farmhouse has driven her to the bottom of her bank account—and the end of her rope. She’s panicked about her family reuniting for the holidays…this could be the last one. Then her kooky neighbor—a perfect stranger—offers a helping hand. She finds a new beam of hope and maybe a lifetime of love with Kip Stewart.
This Christmas anthology is a wonderful way to recover the spirit of Christmas if you are having trouble finding yours. A quartet of stories involving selfless service and difficult relationships, will provide your heart a good warming and your eyes a good flush. Have some tissues close at hand, you will most likely need them.
There is some wonderful writing here, an interesting mix of characters with some wandering into more than one story and an important town event pulls all four stories together. The scene-setting is lovely, I have a great desire to visit a certain small town in Georgia. The food smells heavenly also, in fact, there is a recipe after each story for one of the foods mentioned in each tale.
The characters have depth, their pain and joy come across as quite real.
Painful memories abound and painful choices are faced, but the results are very heartwarming. You are going to love this book. I did!
I give a score of 4.9 stars to Christmas in Jubilee! The score would have been higher except for a few spelling errors I found.
