Gail Gaymer Martin has woven another heart-warming tapestry of love with her latest book, Small Town Christmas. Part of a two-book collection, Small Town Christmas follows Amy Carroll’s journey to her grandmother’s small town for a temporary teaching job. Determined it will be just that—temporary—Amy plans to return to Chicago where the big city holds her heart. She didn’t plan on widower Mike Russet, her grandmother’s neighbor, and his 7-year-old twin girls, Ivy and Holly, capturing her heart. ...more

I have a Christmas songs, decorations or fa-la-la-la-la fun until December. Over the last few years I've become a little fanatical about it as stores begin decorating in October. But when it comes to books from my favorite authors I'm more impatient than a child on Christmas morning. So when I got Gail Gaymer Martin's new Love Inspired release "Christmas Gifts" in the mail I started reading it immediately (even though Halloween hadn't arrived.)

Small Town Christmas by Gail Gaymer Martin

When Amy Carroll is laid off from her teaching job in Chicago she takes a temporary position in tiny Harrisville, Michigan, the home of her grandmother. Almost immediately, she is introduced to the most disruptive students in her class, twin girls suffering from the aftermath of their mother’s death three years earlier. She also meets their apologetic, overwhelmed father. The two hit it off almost immediately, but Amy’s past makes her unsure about entrus

I love the fact that there are two great stories in one book.

Small Town Christmas by Gail Gaymer Martin:

Amy Carroll is a teacher from Chicago who is out of a job due to her school closing its doors. Needing work, she accepts a temporary teaching position in her Grandmother's small town of Harrisville.

Mike Russet is a widower raising 7 year old twin daughters who are a bit of a handful and out of control, especially at school. It just so happens that the twins will be in Amy's second grade class.

Two VERY SWEET, feel-good, heartwarming, Christmas stories. Perfect for a cold, gray, (snowy), Fall or Winter day. To curl up with your favorite warm beverage, and your dog, or cat, or BOTH! BOTH are very good. And leave you with a feel good, Christmas spirit-feeling. I could easily see BOTH of these as Hallmark movies around Christmastime. :-)

Small Town Christmas by Gail Gaymer Martin (one of my FAVORITE authors) Has harried widowed father of twins, Holly and Ivy (born on Christmas Eve.) Who co
In "Christmas Gifts" we are treated to two wonderful stories by Gail Gaymer Martin and Brenda Minton. Both stories rank 5 stars in my eyes that is for sure.

In "Small Town Christmas" by Gail Gaymer Martin we meet widower Mike Russet who is raising his twin little girls, and teacher Amy Carroll. Things are interesting from the very start that is for sure and well the ride continues through the rest of the story. Decisions need to be made when two options open up for one of them, but of course ther

Mike Russet and his twins Holly and Ivy, stole my heart ( as well as Amy's!). Mike was trying to raise his daughters on his own after his wife died thinking he could do it all for them, be mom and dad. Afraid to trust and give his heart again the Lord put Amy Carroll in his path and that of his daughters. Amy had been inbetween jobs and went home to live with her grandmother and took a substitute position as a second grade teacher, where she meets Mike and his twins.

Mike and Amy began to realiz

Nice book. Good Christian read. I wish the second story, Her Christmas Cowboy, was a little longer. I think the story could have been a little meatier if it were longer.

It was my pleasure to read Small Town Christmas. by Gail Gaymer Martin.
Gail Gaymer Martin has taken something unique to twins and
made it extremely realistic. Having seen twin boys turn on
each other out of grief made this all the more real to me.
This is a story that has qualities far beyond a romance and
once more this multi-tallented, multi-published author has
given us a story well worth the time in reading. The depth
of this story is tempered by cute antics of the twins and the
great romance

I enjoy the 'Love Inspired' line by Harlequin. These are short, sweet, clean Christian romances. They don't pretend to be great literature, but they most often remind me of God's truth.
These 2 stories were no exception. In the first, 'Small Town Christmas', I am reminded that God is faithful and knows the plans He has for my life, and that even though they are not always easy, they're always good. The second, 'Her Christmas Cowboy', reminds me about trust . . . not only trusting people, but most
Good stories. In the first one I really liked how good Amy was with the twins. She was able to relate well to them, which helped their dad get better with his relationship with the girls. In the second story, I really liked the whole Cooper family and the way they sucked Elizabeth into the family celebration. It also helped open her eyes to what family can really be like.

I always appreciate Gail Gaymer Martin's stories. The internal conflict that keeps the hero and heroine apart take precedence over external plot issues in a refreshing way.

Loved both stories. Have read Gail before. A first for Brenda. Going to look up more of hers!
Two quick, easy to read, sweet Christmas stories.
