I knew I shouldn't have started to read this book late in the evening. Something told me I made a huge mistake. By the time I was done in the wee hours of the morning, I had cried, gotten angry and smiled. Well I couldn't put the book down until I could smile!

Since her father died from cancer, Lacey Carroll has taken up the responsibility of taking care of her step-sister Emma. Lacey leaves her life behind and moves into her father's home so Emma won;t have so much upheaval in her life. Losing b
Very emotional book. Lacey gave up her carefree single life in Austin to care for her six year old half sister Emma. Their father died six months ago and both of them are still feeling the effects of their grief. Every day Lacey wonders if she's doing the right things for Emma. When Emma comes home from school in tears, Lacey finds out that an older boy has told her that there is no Santa Claus. Emma is devastated and now wants nothing to do with Christmas. Lacey is desperate to find a way to fi ...more
Take a pass unless you really love to suspend your disbelief to an extent that will amaze you!

I found this to be a difficult novel to get through. Not because of the subject matter; but because this was such a formulaic book. I realize that for books in this particular genre, published by this particular publisher formulaic is a critical issue. So readers of this author/publisher, this is a good thing. You will be relieved to find that this book sticks to the 'rules'. I couldn't deal with the st

What’s the first thing that a child associates with Christmas, Santa Claus but what happens when that is crushed? No matter whether Santa Claus is a real person or not it’s all in what we believe just like I believe there is a heaven where beloved ones go it’s this peaceful beautiful place. The little girl in this story lost her mother, lost her father then lost the dog that she loved but if she believes enough she will know that they are in heaven that there is a Santa Claus but the most import ...more

A Texas Holiday Miracle is a beautiful book with a dark beginning building towards a hopeful ending. People tend to think of Christmas as the happiest time of the year but for many it is the hardest and for most there is some sadness related to the holidays. So it is for Lacey, Emma and their neighbor Gabe. Not only are Lacey and her 6 year old half-sister Emma facing their first Christmas without their father, but a neighborhood boy has taken Santa away for Emma too. Next door Gave is refusing ...more

Love doesn’t always come along when it’s a ‘good time’ or in any way convenient. It’s not something you can plan and you’d best not avoid.
I love romance and I love Christmas so I practically overdose on Christmas romance novels.
Christmas seems like a time when anything can happen so if you can somehow block out the crazed shoppers, the Christmas music in October and November, the lying ads, the mass marketing mania, the frenzied traffic…ok, now that I say it, it sounds impossible, but if you’r

Enjoyed this one - super cute - Miracle on 34th Street feel to it.

Content: some mild language, one short sex scene

Sweet, hopeful and enjoyable are just a couple of words that describe this book. This book is about getting beyond death of a loved on and learning how to heal, love and get by. I thought it was interesting seeing the different perspectives of how people dealt with death. I loved seeing how Lacey and her younger sister helped heal Gabe to live beyond the death of his son and dog. I loved watching the connection between the two. I loved that things weren't too rushed. I thought that this book was ...more
This book had a lot of potential, I liked the characters, the setting was okay. The problem was, the follow-through did not realize any of the potential. The story telling was very 2 dimensional, especially in the descriptive area. My mental image of the locations used in the book is very stark and colorless, because we were not given details. The author also came very close to breaking my 'more than 2 characters' rule. Where a book, even (or especially) a romance, needs to have more than just t ...more

Need tissue handy! Linda in front of her book warns that it deals with some sadness and hang in their for the happy ending. Well I cried a lot the first 40% of the book. I personally identified a lot with the characters, I mourned with them and was rooting for them. Lots of drama, trials & tears. Lots of love and miracles that leave you feeling good but wiped out. Their is one love scene that I skipped over.

Lacey Carroll is raising her six year old sister by herself in a new town fo

"This is a wonderful holiday story about how the power of love can help us go on after tragedy. The heroine is delightful and the little girl and hero are characters the reader will root for" (RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars).
