Sheila Roberts is in the house!
Yep. We got lucky again. Sheila’s back with yet another heartwarming small town story, this one with a Christmas theme. You know, I love holiday stories and I don’t think I’ve read a single one that I haven’t liked. But when it’s from an author on my “favorites” list, I anticipate the read even more. So I’m very excited, as I’m sure we all are, to see Sheila and hear about her new story:
James Claussen has played Santa for years, but now that he’s a widower, he’s lost interest—in everything. So his daughter, Brooke, kidnaps him from the mall (in his Santa suit!) and takes him to Icicle Falls. She’s arranged a special Christmas at the lodge owned by long-widowed Olivia Wallace and her son, Eric. And yet…Brooke wants Dad to be happy, but she’s not ready to see someone else’s mommy kissing Santa Claus.
Single mom Missy Monroe brings her kids to the lodge, too. Lalla wants a grandma for Christmas, and her brother, Carlos, wants a dog. Missy can’t provide either one. What she’d like is an attractive, dependable man. A man like John Truman… But John’s girlfriend will be joining him in Icicle Falls, and he’s going to propose.
Of course not everything goes as planned. But sometimes the best gifts are the ones you don’t expect!
