“This is a real Christmas book and perfect to get you in the holiday spirit. Highly recommended.” – MB, Amazon Reviewer
A heartwarming Christmas story about family, friendship and finding love in unexpected places.
Joy Holbrook may be all work and no play, but that all changed when her Aunt Ruby takes a fall that lands her in a rehabilitation centre before the holidays. Joy takes a leave of absence from her job as a market researcher to look after the family farm, even though the timing may thwart her chance at gaining the promotion of her dreams.
Ben Andrews isn’t your normal accountant. He also happens to be the handiest guy in Crystal Falls. He’s assisted his elderly neighbour, Ruby Johnson, prepare for the annual Christmas Home Tour, and win, the last several years. He’s not about to let some drop-in niece ruin their winning streak.
Ruby appears overly troubled about Joy being able to handle Molly. Under the impression she’s denoting Molly the bunny that is one of the menagerie of animals, Joy’s not concerned at all until the next morning when a little girl named Molly turns up. For the sake of her aunt, Joy is forced to partner with Ben while Ruby is on the mend to help with preparing for the Christmas tour and, in turn finds her career-focused heart dreaming of a family.
“Christmas Joy offers a charming tale of family, friendship, love, loss and the real meaning of Christmas.” – Reader to Reader Reviews
“This is a sweet story of a woman figuring out what she really wants with the help of a guy, a stray kid, and enough decorations for several Pinterest boards. Steer fans of inspirational fiction toward this one as well.” – Booklist
