Christmas is coming to Twilight, Texas, which seems to be in the running for the friendliest town in Texas.. Celebrations are quite the thing here, and Christmas is their biggest and brightest. Jana Gerard and Joel MacGregor have been friends for years, and Jana even works part-time for Joel. While closing up the living Nativity for the night, they make quite the discover: a real baby in the manger! There's a note written on the diaper by the child's mother, stating she will return for little Gabriel by New Year's. Totally taken with the little guy, they get permission to take care of the child together in the hopes that mother actually returns. They soon fall in love with the baby, which also makes Jana and Joel deal with their real feelings for each other...
This is one of the sweetest Christmas romances I've ever read. Not only are Jana and Joel great characters, but Twilight, Texas seems to be a character in its own right. Jana had a horrible life after being abandoned by her mother when she was 3, but she has made a great life for herself in this town. After the horror of her early life, one can understand her trust issues and the need for independence. She couldn't stand the thought of Gabriel being put in Child Protective Services while they waited for the child's mother to return, as she was in CPS as a kid. Jana has had her life's story written all over her body with tattoos. Joel was a totally different person from Jana. He grew up in a loving home, though he lost his beloved mother as a child, plus his father was lost to alcohol for years after her death but eventually sobered up. The family was basically raised by oldest sister Flynn, and all the siblings are incredibly close. Joel was extremely tall and handsome, a great doggy daddy and to be honest, rather goofy in an endearing way. Total opposites, but we all know opposites attract, at least in romance novels! Plus living in the almost magical town on Twilight helped bring them together. When they connected physically it was extremely steamy, but also humorous. The supporting characters were all fun, though their meddling could be a bit overwhelming. This is just the story to get you in the spirit of Christmas!
I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.
Joel and Jana may be employer and employee, but they've both volunteered to watch the town's live nativity and take the animals back to the barn at the end of the night. There may also be some interest on one or both of their parts, but Jana is a mess of tough complications.
Before they can get the animals back to their homes they find a real, live human baby in the manger. With nothing more than a note asking they look after him, Joel and Jana work together to care for little Gabriel. Jana grew up in the system, so she'll do anything to keep this innocent baby out of foster care. She'll gladly spare anyone the experiences she had, especially an innocent baby.
Of course, this is Twilight, Texas, so something like this doesn’t happen in the small community without most everyone in town getting involved. And as they work together on behalf of Gabriel, Jana and Joel grow closer to each other, but it's not an easy road. Jana’s upbringing influences most everything in her life, and Joel has some serious challenges in getting Jana to lower her walls.
This talented lady knows just how to weave a story that draws the reader in, making her part of everything that happens from beginning to end. Settle in and gird your heart, but prepare to have these authentic, vulnerable characters make themselves at home in it. Sweet, compelling and full of feels, this wonderful heartwarming story will fill you with joy and remind you of the very best parts of the Christmas season.
This book is an emotional overload and I LOVED it!
I have a lot of catching up to do as this is the twelfth book in the series and I want to read them all.
If you haven't read an author before I believe reading a Christmas book by them is a great way to try them out as I believe author's make their Christmas books a little more special.
We start out at Christmastime in Twilight,Texas. It's a beautiful time,cold,twinkling lights,everyone in a festive mood. Care takers of the living manger, friends Joel and Jana make a shocking discovery in the manger. A days old baby with a note from his mother saying she'll return when she's able to.
As we get to know Joel and Jana we discover some baggage Jana has that's she's kept hidden all her life. As the couple take care of the baby jointly they make discoveries not only about each other but about themselves and how letting go and learning to trust can be accomplished.
Who is the mother of the baby though and why has she abandoned her baby? Will she return to claim her baby? This is an emotional book with the responsibility of the baby along with Joel having such a profound effect on Jana, bringing to the surface memories she thought she had tucked away for good. If you read no other Christmas books this year I suggest you read this one!
