Today I'm featuring two Christmas novellas by Colleen Coble as part of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Tour.

Holy Night:
An Aloha Reef Christmas Novella

(Aloha Reef Series)
Colleen Coble
November 2013/141 pages/$1.99 (Kindle)

One sinister phone call has derailed their wedding.

Will they let it tear them apart forever?

A Christmas wedding on the beach—what could be more perfect? Poinsettias and fragrant pikake blossoms, soft sand and mistletoe, the gentle sound of the surf and the wedding march played on a ukulele. This wedding has been a long time coming, with Bane’s trust issues and Leia’s worries about her childlike sister, Eva.

Now they can hardly wait for the day to arrive. Thrilled to be a bridesmaid, Eva keeps trying on her ruffled dress. The tent is reserved, the caterers paid. Everything is going as planned—until Leia’s phone rings and her world skids out of control. A muffled voice informs Leia that Eva’s been kidnapped and will be killed unless Leia calls off the wedding without explanation—and no police! If she disobeys instructions and tells Bane, she’ll risk her beloved sister’s life. But how can she ever handle this without his help? And how can he ever trust her if she lies to him now?

Irresistible romance meets thrilling suspense in this holiday update to USA Today best-selling author COLLEEN COBLE’s best-selling Aloha Reef series.


I love Christmas novellas and books by Colleen Coble so combining the two is a win-win! I have not read any of the Aloha Reef series, but thoroughly enjoyed this novella. In her trademark style, Coble expertly weaves romance and suspense into a story that also highlights how past hurts can impact current relationships. A great read for a copy evening!

Silent Night:
A Rock Harbor Christmas Novella

(Rock Harbor Series)
Colleen Coble
ASIN: B00A29R22I
November 2012/141 pages/$2.99 (Kindle)

As Christmas day nears, Bree and her faithful search-and-rescue dog Samson follow the trail of a troubling mystery into the snowy forests of Rock Harbor.

Bree Matthews is preparing for Christmas guests, but her heart is reeling from the recent and tender loss of her unborn child. Her sister-in-law, Lauri, suddenly turns up on the doorstep of the lighthouse home Bree shares with her husband, Kade, in Rock Harbor. Secretive and withdrawn, Lauri seems curiously intent on discovering what happened to a parachuter who disappeared in the North Woods along Lake Superior’s icy shore.

As Bree and Samson, her search-and-rescue dog, plunge into the search, Bree wonders if Lauri may know more than she’s admitted about the parachuter. And then the clues lead them to the trail of a young woman whose family fears the worst about her disappearance.

Will the search on this snowy, silent night lead Bree and Samson to more than clues about the missing girl? And will Bree’s prayer for a baby ever be answered?


As I began reading this book, it seemed really familiar, then I realized I had purchased it last year when it came out! No worries, though; it was just as enjoyable the second time around! Colleen Coble's Rock Harbor series is well-loved by her readers, and it was a delight to revisit Bree and her family and see her on the trail with her SAR dog Samson. This is a perfect read for a cold night by the fireplace. I can't imagine traipsing through the snow like Bree and Samson do during their searches and was happy to be warm while I read. Start your holiday season off with this heart-warming novella.
