Two Christmas stories - one historical, one contemporary - under one cover!
Love Finds You under the Mistletoe: An Appalachian Christmas
A promise to her dying sister compels Julia Mayfield to take her young nephew to Mistletoe, Kentucky, a tiny town tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. Sparks fly when she meets David Armstrong, a World War II veteran like herself. Even as shadows from the past weave a dangerous web around Julia and David, will their love flourish like the mistletoe that blankets the nearby hills?

Love Finds You under the Mistletoe: Once Upon a Christmas Eve
Hollie Goodnight's store has just been voted best Christmas shop in America. All the new publicity draws flamboyant novelist Van Keaton to the cozy town of Noel, Missouri, demanding to write Hollie's story - a dramatic tale of misfortune and triumph. She is swept up in his world of beautiful words and fanciful interludes. . .until Owen Quigly, her lifelong best friend, launches a plan to win her back.

Watch the book trailer:

One of the perennial signs of fall is the appearance of Christmas novels on the shelves and in the mailbox. This is a delightful double-feature containing two stories very faintly tied together via a family tree. One is historical, while the other is a bit more contemporary. Both are enjoyable. I've liked every book I've read in the Love Finds You. . ., and this one is no exception!

I read about this on Bonnie's blog. I thought then that it looked light and fun. I haven't signed up to review any Christmas books!

Thanks for featuring our stories. I've appreciated the reviews. It seems a bit soon to be reading Christmas stories, but when the youth at our church start talking about a Christmas program, I know that the Season will be here before I'm ready for it.
