I finished this book and let out a happy sigh. The story is delightful, the characters are wonderful, and Christmas Town is…well…Christmas Town. There’s no place better!

I love second chance stories - especially ones that started with young love. It was so fun to see the spark between Joy and Devon reignite, and the magic that came with it. Love that Christmas magic! They were so cute together and perfect for each other. I wanted to shake Devon a few times, though, and get him moving. Everything

I was excited to go back and visit Christmas Town, Tennessee in Ginny Baird’s His Christmas Joy. Like the others from the Christmas Town series, I enjoyed this delightful and fun story. I loved seeing Joy and Devon together. I could not help but to giggle at those two at times.

I give His Christmas Joy five stars. I highly recommend it (as well as the others in the series) for all who love heartwarming, magical and sweet romances.

The Christmas magic is in full force with His Christmas Joy, the seventh installment in Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series. This is a standalone read, with the opportunity to revisit characters from books five and six. Ginny writes stories that put the reader into the pages of her books. His Christmas Joy, which is a sweet new adult second chance love story is no different.

Joy Christmas and Devon Slade are two characters who I couldn’t wait to find their happily-ever-after. They first

I have loved this series. The town is so different but small town and the families are wonderful to read. The magical, mystical Christmas Town will warm your heart.

She wants to come home to see her new baby brother and family and Giancomo just doesn't understand. So they take a break. And when Joy and old flame Devon meet up again strange things begin to happen.

Commitment cookies should not be eaten lightly. Even if you are still in high school :) In this latest edition of the Christmas and Claus family we see how one of Walt's twin daughters, Joy, finds her true love. Or rather rediscovers him. Devon was her high school boyfriend, and when Joy decided to go to Italy for future studies, she thought that they had a mutual and amicable breakup. Not realizing that she was actually breaking his heart. Now with an Italian Beau and a new life waiting to unfo ...more

I have been waiting for Joy and Devon's story. I have loved this whole series. Joy left Devon behind when she went to Italy. They both thought that their young love was over. Joy even met an Italian man that she considered marrying. When he didn't want to come back home with her for Christmas, they decided to take a break. Then she saw Devon again. That spark is still there. The question is, what will they do about it? When they grow closer, the Italian boyfriend shows up with a ring? Will Devon ...more

His Christmas Joy is book number seven in the Christmas Town series by Ginny Baird. Who will Joy Christmas choose Devon Slade or Giacomo Romano?

This story is a great way to escape from everyday life struggles. You get to visit with all our friends from the other Christmas Town stories and watch a couple discover the magic of true love.

This is a fun and magical sweet romance. It was fun getting to visit Christmas Town again.

I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

After a fight over where to spend Christmas with her boyfriend, Giacomo, Joy has returned to Christmastown for the holidays. Joy is realizing that Devon, her former boyfriend, and the town she grew up may have more to offer. I received a free copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntarily given review. I love this sweet romance. This is a magical Christmas romance. I highly recommend this book and the series.

I was smiling from the very beginning. It seems that some traits are passed down to the next generation. Joy has come home for Christmas. She needed to see her family. She missed so much in the year she was gone. Now that she is home, things are happening. She has re-connected with Devon, her first love. Is he her true love? Will it be Giacomo? Stay tune.

His Christmas Joy

Continuing the series, I recommend reading them in order. A sweet Christmas romance. She comes home for Christmas and reconnects with her first love. Christmas Town magic is at work but will it be strong enough?

Joy starts to develop her family abilities but is it because of Devon or her Italian boyfriend? I loved Devon in the previous books and really wanted these two back together. I kept thinking Joy how can you NOT see the signs and who they are REALLY pointing to?!!!! This one was a little different but I really liked it. Great to see previous characters.
