Love's Christmas Blessings by Laura V. Hilton and Rachel J. Good

A time for fellowship, family, and love. Enjoy two novellas from beloved Amish authors and fill your heart with the wonder of the Christmas season.

Winter's Treasure

Paris and Quil have sparks from the beginning, especially since his appearance causes a vicious rivalry between friends. But who can resist when a chance meeting beginning with donuts and coffee ends with a missing person, puppies, a skunk, and a sleigh ride—not to mention a trip the Amish young people plan to Niagara Falls. Could it also involve falling in love?

Mistletoe and Miracles
An exhausted son, Daniel, and a recent widow, Fern, join forces to brighten a grumpy old man’s day and cheer up a shy, displaced little girl. However, things take a serious turn when Fern’s daughter goes missing on a school field trip. With a little help from Daniel, Fern discovers more than just her daughter’s whereabouts. Will four lonely hearts create special bonds to make it a Christmas to remember?

My Thoughts:

I loved reading both of these novellas. They are stories for Christmas reading or anytime of year.  

Rachel's book Mistletoe and Miracles drew me in with the story of her little girl and the heartache they had recently had.  I loved Fern's character she was hardworking but found time to be caring and loving.   Her daughter brings a different aspect to the story and she had a problem that I completely understood.  I was just as shy as she was as a little girl.  

So many great characters described just right kept me wanting to read more.  Such a heartwarming story that drew me in and left me with happy with the outcome.  

Laura's book, Winter's Treasure, was a great book to read also but it seemed to be more of a story for young adult readers.   I'm not sure that I really liked the bickering that went back in forth between the two girls.  Overall not a bad read just a little different from my usual.  

I received these books for free. I was not required to write a positive review.
