A Glorious Christmas is the fifth installment from Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series. What a fun and delightful story! Like the other books in the series, this one made me giggle throughout. The author sure knows how to write a good, clean and heartwarming romance, with a side of humor. Walt and Gloria go on an adventure they never saw coming. I thought they were the perfect pair when they were in the same scenes together.
I give A Glorious Christmas 5 plus stars and highly recommend it!

Every book I read in this series makes me fall in love with the town and families even more than I did. The beauty and whimsy of the town is portrayed so vividly and the families are so caring and loving.

Walt Christmas has never dreamed of falling in love again. Being a widower for ten years and with two grown daughters he's happy, albeit lonely sometimes with his life. Until Gloria walks in and turns his world upside down. Things and gifts he hasn't felt in years burst out of nowhere and he

I loved Gloria and Walt’s story!! Gloria brought out the magic in Walt. Literally. It was hilarious to watch Walt as he tried to suppress that magic and his attraction to Gloria. He was adorable! Then, when he decided to just accept what was happening – oh, my! That man knows how to woo a woman!! But it wasn’t all about romance. I loved the deeper moments and understanding between them. I also loved the support they received from Walt’s daughters, especially Noelle.

It was great to be back in

Loved, loved, loved it! Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series has enchanted me from the start and Walt and Gloria’s story may be my favorite yet. From the moment Gloria arrived at the Inn amidst a flutter of mail gone wild, this story was funny, romantic, charming and sweet all rolled up into one delicious holiday treat.

Gloria has come to Christmas Town to help her best friend Savannah during the last weeks of her pregnancy. She has heard many great things about Christmas Town and its residents

Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series is one of my favorite holiday series. Ginny has this ability to capture the spirit of Christmas and make the reader feel it, even when it’s the middle of summer. The series centers around three families in the fictional town of Christmas Town, Tennessee. To say the town is magical would be an understatement. But I don’t want to go into too much detail. Honestly, with each book I read, I discover more and more about the characters.

I loved that I was drawn in

This series continues to get better with each book filled with whimsy and magic and gave me an afternoon of reading pleasure. The picturesque East Tennessee town is the perfect setting where everyday dreams come true.

I feel like I'm visiting old friends when I read about the residents of Christmas Town and wanted the book to continue when I got to the end. I loved the dynamic, repartee and sweet romance between handsome widower Walt Christmas, owner of the Christmas Inn, and Gloria Chavez, a

We are back in Christmas Town with a new comer. Gloria Chavez is a guest at the Christmas Inn run by Walt Christmas. She's here to help Savannah and Kurt before the baby comes. Although she literally has no idea about the magic that she's stirring up in the town.
We see more of Walt's daughter Noelle, the writer in this book. Although her twin Joy, is out in Italy learning to live the artist's life in Florence. Walt is suddenly assaulted by the need for more peppermint in his life as Gloria

Then Gloria Chavez blows into town from Miami and his whole world seems to be turned upside down.

Sun and sand in Miami to snow and cold in Christmas Town. Walt is the confirmed widow. He is the father of twins, Joy and Noelle. Every time they are around each other, magical things happen. Gloria is confused and Walt goes for a check-up. Only his brother said there is nothing wrong. It is a matter of use it or ...more

Delightful Christmas story!

I had so much fun following these two charming characters Gloria and Walt. Well written by talented author Ginny Baird, ‘A Glorious Christmas’ the 5th story in her Christmas Town series, was a charm to read. Found it refreshing! Another sweet story set in Christmas Town.

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this.

A Glorious Christmas by Ginny Baird is just such a magic filled romantic Christmas story that once more takes us back to Christmas Town and gives us a lovely sweet story about finding love, family and the right time to start giving love a chance again.
If you love stories set around Christmas time and stories filled with a little extra Christmas magic this is such a lovely sweet story. It's part of a series but this book that's book five in the series can very easily be read as a stand alone.

This is such a fun series! As with each of the Christmas Town stories, I delighted in the magic of A Glorious Christmas. When Gloria Chavez walks into Walt Christmas’s life, mayhem and merriment ensue. Although it is a holiday story, A Glorious Christmas is sure to warm your heart any time of the year.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

I love this series!!! Walt and Gloria make one spunky couple!!! Walt is trying to guard his heart but his "talents" won't let him. Gloria isn't quite sure what to make of him and the things she is "seeing". She is spunky. I always feel like I am in Christmas Town - great descriptions. We really get to know Liz better and are introduced to Gloria's brother. Excited to read their book.

A fun, whimsical and magic story to pull you in from to start. You cannot go wrong with the Christmas magic that goes on between Walt and Gloria. Every character has a hand in getting the story told and easy to follow along with. A great series to get involved in even with them all being standalone reads.

Loved it. It has been awhile since I read the previous books in this series and I was happy to get reacquainted with many of the previous characters. Salt and Gloria's story was another in the series that is a very feel good story.

I absolutely love this series and have from the very beginning. This may be one of my favorites books of the series. Funny, delightful read from start to finish. I love the magic of the town, the sweet nosy neighbors that help things along. Baird's descriptive writing style helps you feel the cold and taste the snowflakes. I voluntarily reviewed a copy I received from the author.
