"A Miracle for Christmas" by Debby Giusti

“Home to His Heart” by Ruth Logan Herne

Being in Ashton, Pennsylvania at Christmas time holds nothing but bad memories for Dr. Tess Cosgrove. Widower Jake Karralis is at a rough professional crossroads. When Tess meets her high school nemesis living across the street with his twin sons, the stakes suddenly change. Can the timing of a young angel and the glory of a newborn king bring peace and happiness to two troubled souls? It can, with a little help from baklava and hand-rolled cannolis!

“Under the Mistletoe” by Tina Radcliffe
Wrap your heart around a cozy little romance that starts with a red wool scarf, an angel or two, and ends with Ben Logan and Lucy Fielding under the mistletoe.

“One Snowy Kiss” by Missy Tippens
Unlucky in love, police deputy Hardy Greenway has spent his life in the friend zone. But now he’s fallen hard for the girlfriend of his nemesis. Dori Blanchette has been waiting for a proposal. But how could she say yes when she has feelings for Hardy? With Christmas tree ornaments playing spontaneously and secrets being revealed, there’s no telling who will end up together at Christmas!

“Holiday Homecoming” by Sandra Leesmith
Debbie fell in love with surfer David Martin. Against her parent’s wishes, she married her first love. Would the help of an angel and the influence of the Christmas season bring forgiveness and redemption?

My Review

A heartwarming collection of stories centered around Christmas miracles and the heavenly help that nudges the characters toward a happy ending. A variety of themes are covered, from suspense and action to unrequited love and second chances. I enjoyed some stories more than others, but it is a decent anthology overall and I would recommend it to readers who love novellas and holiday stories.
