NEW BEGINNINGS * Rachel J. Good
Still grieving the loss of her husband and unborn baby in an accident several months ago, Elizabeth Yoder is oblivious to her neighbor Luke Bontrager’s deepening affection for her. But while she bleakly faces Christmas alone, it’s Luke who reminds her it’s the season for giving. And when Elizabeth donates her handmade baby clothes to New Beginnings, a home for teen moms, she soon finds her gifts repaid beyond measure, with Luke’s love—and new beginnings of their own . . .
What happenst when two secretive, stubborn people find themselves thrown together to help four rascally youngsters—twins times two!—create a Christmas surprise for their parents? Mischief and mayhem, and just maybe . . . love!
The Christmas Not-Wish by Shelley Shepard Gray was an
emotional read as I felt for the foster children Roy and Jemima Fisher. Their characteristics and
logical were typical of foster children from my years of working with them. The
drama Jemima created Christmas Eve brought tears along with a delightful
ending. It was nice to catch up with the characters from Gray’s
Rachel J. Good’s New Beginnings novella was my favorite. The
love and admiration Luke had for
Twins Time Two by Loree Lough brought plenty of chuckles with the young teen twin cousins. Their antics reaped consequences but in the end they had grown to show maturity and that they really did respect and care for others.
This is a wonderful collection to read this Christmas season, especially if you enjoy stories with twins.
I received a complimentary e-book from NetGalley and Kensington Books and was under no obligation to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
