Not everyone, however, has caught the Christmas spirit. Kate Iverson doesn't want to accept that there will be more babies in her future, even though her doctor is certain that her chil ...more

It was basically a dig for family history.
Dec 17, 2009 Sally rated it it was ok
Not much too this story. It tried to teach the true meaning of Christmas, but just involved a story that was easy to anticipate with little substance.

I'm still searching for "good" Christmas stories. Is it too much to ask for a decent plot, well developed characters, and engaging to read? Apparently so. So many Christmas books are simply drivel, including this one. I didn't even know it was an LDS themed book until about halfway through when all of a sudden the main characters started discussing temple ceremonies. There were also stereotypical characters like the nosy next door neighbor that didn't have children of her own and so she was comp ...more

I started this book last Christmas, got half way throught it and was interrupted by life and the busyness of the Christmas season. I should have picked it back up immediately and finished the story then, I wish I had. This story touched my heart and made me think about what more I could being doing to experience the true meaning of Christmas in my daily life?

There is nothing quite like a Christmas season spent with family, good friends, and neighbors, but Kate Iverson is having a hard time catc

A charming, brief visit to Mark and Kate Iverson, Miss Eugenia, and the other characters in the Haggerty series, the best books in which are Hearts in Hiding and this longish story. I like the family history angle and wish that the story had been longer and had explained how the Iversons got into fostering babies, which they are doing without background in a later Haggerty book. A fine little Christmas read for LDS readers.

A fun, easy read with no murder or mystery! The same characters as in the author's other books are in this one and the plots are that it is Christmastime and everyone in town is decorating their door for a contest and the main character is struggling with the fact that she is not able to have any more children. Support, relationships and love is abundant.

Christmas with Miss Eugenia and the Iversons? I love it:) Darling story about listening, doing service and the importance of family. I loved Kate and Mark's interractions with one another, and grumpy old Miss Eugenia and her big old softy heart. Cute quick read:)
Dec 23, 2011 Barbara rated it liked it
I liked it and it is a short read and easy to read. I really liked the fact that Kate found the missing child of that family and was able to put the family back together for all to see. I also liked the theme of her door. You'll have to read it to find out what I mean.

Christmas in Haggerty is a compelling story of a small LDS family and their southern neighbors in the small town of Haggerty. Sharing friendship, love, and support is the essence of the small town leading up to Christmas. Miracles large and small happen as everyone shares the Christmas spirit.

Good lessons and the truth of them made my heart swell but, the story was a round-a-bout way of getting those truths across. Not sure what the cookies recipe had to do with any of it, but it sounds like a good recipe. I will try it.

I loved this book. Maybe it's because I love family history, but it was good.
Dec 28, 2012 Victoria rated it really liked it
better than average "Mormon lit"-- a bout a mom who wants more children but can't and how she "finds" the baby of her dreams.
Feb 20, 2008 Dalesse rated it liked it
This is a sweet little story, but really short and a bit of a disappointment after the other great books Green has written about the characters in Haggarty.

A cute Christmas book but not one that really got me like her others. Good for one read.
Jan 02, 2009 Kristine rated it really liked it
Very fun--but especially since I "know" these characters so well, having read every "Haggerty" book I have been able to get my hands on! If you haven't, give them a try !

The Southern busy bodies make me smile. I like the wit and humor of the nosy neighbors and fighting old ladies. I found the story a bit too sweet, too ho hum for me to love it.

If you're not familiar with my books, I write mystery-suspense novels. I am LDS (Mormon) and so are some of my characters, but I have loyal readers from many different faiths. My goal is to engage the reader in my books. I want to make them laugh and cry and worry and dread the end.

Most of my books are set in the fictional town of Haggerty, Georgia - which is loosely based on my grand
