This Christmas, come home to Fairbrook, the setting for Judy Duarte’s uplifting, heartwarming novels, where friendship, faith, and some extra-special providence will make it a holiday to remember.

Fairbrook is a town tailor-made for Christmas, with beautiful old houses dotting quaintly named streets like Sugar Plum Lane and Nutcracker Court. But not everyone is eager for the holidays to arrive. Cash-strapped single mom Carly Westbrook worries about providing a merry Christmas for her boys. It doesn’t help that they’ve been having run-ins with neighbor Max Tolliver, an aspiring novelist stricken with writer’s block. Then there’s Grant Barrows, a formerly wealthy businessman whose heart seems to have shrunk along with his bank balance.

Some folks are still determined to make the season sparkle—like the Diamond Lils, a ladies’ group that meets weekly to play poker and socialize. This year, they’re looking to do some good deeds—and wealthy widow Lynette thinks that a little matchmaking between Grant and Carly would be a perfect place to start.

Yet Christmas is a season for surprises. And sometimes, the gifts we never expected turn out to be the most precious of all.

    " I'm giving this 2 stars only because I liked the plot. The writing is mediocre and the ending is full of holes. We don't know what happened to many of the characters at the end - it's like a final chapter is missing. Too bad, because as I said, the plot idea is pretty interesting. "

    " Almost perfect holiday read. Interesting characters, plenty of problems and a bit of a miracle to tie things together. I liked all of the characters and I especially liked that everyone didn't get everything they may have wanted - but maybe everything they really needed. "
