Home for Christmas by Paige Winship Dooly

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. (Psalm 29:11, NIV)

Stella arrives in Christmas, Florida, content with her nomadic RV lifestyle and ready to tackle her next job as event planner for the town’s Christmas festival. While she keeps an eye on the post office for her next job lead, Brick keeps busy with his contracting job, heading up the Christmas committee, and as a single dad to his young son, Seth. When festival plans throw the two together, Stella and Brick realize their lives are lacking in the relationship arena. Will the small town put a postmark of approval on their relationship before Stella leaves Christmas for good?

Merry Christmas, With Love by Darlene Franklin

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV)

A Blessed Angel Came by Kathleen E. Kovach (ME!)

The angel said to him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news.” (Luke 1:19, NIV)

Gabi Archer wishes she could be bold and forthright like her thirteen-year-old half-sister, Jerica, who is a paraplegic. Ever since the accident that claimed their parents and left Jerica in a wheelchair, Gabi has retreated into her safe world. That is, until photographer David Levine enters her life where they both work at a nature park in Christmas, Florida. David challenges and intrigues Gabi. He, in turn, sees the strong and passionate person within her through his lens. They secretly send cards to each other through the town’s post office as a way to show their admiration. Can David draw Gabi out of her shell, or will his past cause her to withdraw further?

You’re a Charmer, Mr. Grinch by Paula Moldenhauer

Warn the rich people of this world not to be proud or to trust in wealth that is easily lost. Tell them to have faith in God, who is rich and blesses us with everything we need to enjoy life. (I Timothy 6:17, CEV)

Retired police officer Rick Stanton dons a grinch costume for the holidays and "patrols" Christmas, Florida to promote the festive town. Everyone falls under his charm except the person he most wants to impress—Postmaster Edie Hathaway. Rick wants to be loved for himself, not his secret; and his silence confuses Edie, stirring up her painful past and threatening her secure future. The grinch is stealing Edie’s heart, but will Edie learn to trust him before he gives up on love?
