A time for fellowship, family, and love. Enjoy two novellas from beloved Amish authors and fill your heart with the wonder of the Christmas season.
Paris and Quil have sparks from the beginning, especially since his appearance causes a vicious rivalry between friends. But who can resist when a chance meeting beginning with donuts and coffee ends with a missing person, puppies, a skunk, and a sleigh ride—not to mention a trip the Amish young people plan to Niagara Falls. Could it also involve falling in love?
Mistletoe and Miracles
An exhausted son, Daniel, and a recent widow, Fern, join forces to brighten a grumpy old man’s day and cheer up a shy, displaced little girl. However, things take a serious turn when Fern’s daughter goes missing on a school field trip. With a little help from Daniel, Fern discovers more than just her daughter’s whereabouts. Will four lonely hearts create special bonds to make it a Christmas to remember?

Book Review by Bree Herron
Two sweet novellas wrapped up in one book. I have enjoyed many stories from both these authors and found this little collection to be heartwarming and season fitting. I think this is a perfect book to read to get ready for the holidays.
Paris and Quil are wonderful. I really love the name Paris so was instantly drawn to this character. Add in animals (hello, skunk) and the magic of the season and you have a great read. Seriously, they will charm your socks off!
Mistletoe and Miracles
Fern is a mom trying to do it all. She is on her own and facing some obstacles. I really love that she was a mom and that made really relatable for me.
Both stories are really sweet to read. I really liked that there were different levels of the season in each and that I felt as though I was being transported into each story. Plus, it helped that cookies were mentioned 🙂
If you are looking for a quick read that will warm your heart, these stories are for you. I think they will be heartwarming, joy-filled, and just right for those readers needing to feel a bit more holiday spirit.
