Thalia Bloom hosts a Christmas party on December 3, 1913, and it is the talk of Denver. However, the gently falling snow turns into a blizzard and lasts six days…

Fires of Love by Tamela Hancock Murray: Thalia Bloom looks forward to having her party, except for seeing heartbroken Maximilian Newbolt. Inexplicably, sparks fly between them. After the party, Maximilian is forced to stay in Thalia’s home due to an allergic reaction to a food he ate at the party. Will God use this experience to help the two find love?

The Best Medicine by Lena Nelson Dooley: Thomas Stanton’s arrival at Thalia’s party reminds Rose Fletcher how much she adored this dashing cowboy when he worked for her father. But Thomas doesn’t share Rose’s faith in God. Will God use a party to show Rose and Thomas they are on the same wave-length after all?

Almost Home by Susan Page Davis: When Patricia Logan leaves Thalia’s party, she goes to visit her uncle. However, she ends up snowbound with handsome Jared Booker, and an outspoken midwife. Will Jared and Patricia develop a lasting love in a remote cabin?

Dressed in Scarlet by Darlene Franklin: Natalie Daire has a car accident on the way home from Thalia’s party and ends up snowed in at a hotel. The mechanic, Fabrizio Ricco, who fixes Thalia’s car is also snowed in. Can a rich heiress and a poor mechanic find love?

SNOWBOUND COLORADO CHRISTIMAS is a collection of four novellas all centered around the same theme—Thalia’s party and a blizzard. It was enjoyable reading about these four couples finding love from the same set of circumstances and how God moved in each situation.

SNOWBOUND COLORADO CHRISTMAS was a quick read, each story not taking more than a few hours of reading time. Set during the Christmas season, the faith message is well-woven in. I enjoy reading Christmas stories, and this collection was especially heartwarming. Don’t miss SNOWBOUND COLORADO CHRISTMAS. $12.95. 344 pages.
