Jeremiah Maddox agreed to let university administrator Lara Crane house international students in his guest cottage. But he never expected to host a married couple with three children—or babysit the family's infant at Christmastime. And what he least expected was to fall for the

"A Merry Little Christmas" is two novella's that center around Christmas and romance that are written by two outstanding authors, Catherine Palmer and Jillian Hart.

In the first novella, "Unto Us a Child" by Catherine Palmer, what an interesting story that takes two people who are so set in their ways at their ages (35 and 42 I believe) and not ready to make changes and so they fight those changes. The youngsters of the story though help push, pull and manipulate both knowingly and unknowingly to

This book is two novellas, both very different but both centering around Christian values and family. I'm very impressed with the writers for the Steeple Hill/Love Inspired line. They bring faith into fiction without shoving any religion down your throat. That is very refreshing.

The first story Unto Us A Child is very sweet. It is about an international student and his family and the man who takes them in. Oh and the love interest is the woman that runs the program. They all learn things from ea
Unto Us a Child. . . by Catherine Palmer - (four stars) - I enjoyed this story about international students, college students, and the main characters, Lara and Jeremiah, but I did feel that Lara's decisions and changes came a little too easily and quickly, although it is a novella.

And now she is thinking about her, too. Boy, this Christmas will be different than any he has ever had.

Christmas, Don't Be Late: Amanda is alone with her two children and a dead car when her n
Two short love story/romances set during the holidays. Sweet but not memorable.
Liked the first part of the first story, it seemed it drag on even to the close end. Loved the second book to pieces! It pulled me into the story of a mom with two kids and a good neighbor to give what he could and more.
I liked the stories but I don't think every faithful woman is going to find a super rich husband...
Both of these were great stories
i love a good romantic christmas story.
