What a diverse and rewarding Christmas collection we find in Comfort & Joy! In Alana Terry's Frost Heaves, we find a truly unexpected Christmas story, and true to her style touches on a poignant & eye-opening topic, and in this plot combines it with quite a bit of heart-pounding suspense. In Toni Shiloh's Deck the Shelves, we find a sweet and precious romance with truly endearing hero and heroine, and a delightful, emotional plot. In The Christmas Glory Quilt by Cathe Swanson, we find a cozy read about a delightful heroine who has such a fun job- she is opening her own wedding gown shop! The story is so much deeper than that, and pulls up the past and marries it with the present in a truly riveting read. In Chautona Havig's fashion, we find in The Ghosts of New Cheltenham a fun, unique, glue you to the page storyline that presents quirky, endearing characters that remind us of Jesus, the reason for Christmas. We have a mystery to solve with a lovely Dickens theme! I loved how every book brought us back to the point of Christmas- the birth of our Savior. I loved how each author brought their truly own unique story to the collection that made for a truly well-rounded experience. Each author brought their own flavor in a beautiful, unique, riveting way that I would recommend all fiction readers to check out! Don't miss this one of a kind Christmas collection!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the authors, and all opinions given are my own.

Guest Post from Chautona Havig
Why Do So Many Christians Love to Celebrate Christmas?
But I couldn’t be satisfied—not yet.
That brought me back to the original question.
“What about the fact that we’re told to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus? We aren’t told to celebrate the birth. Does that make it wrong?” This time, Dad’s jaw hardened. I saw it twitch, and prepared for a blasting. After all, I had kind of argued with him. I hadn’t meant to, but I could see how it might be taken that way. “Chautona,” he said, “don’t ever put rules on yourself that God hasn’t. We may not be commanded to celebrate Christ’s birth, but we aren’t forbidden, either. We have God’s example to emulate, and we have this truth.” His voice gentled when he saw he’d startled me. “We would never have been able to celebrate Christ’s death if He had not been born. If that’s not a reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is.”
What does all that have to do with Christmas novellas (or “noellas” like I prefer to call them)?
Happy Birthday, Jesus. Thanks for coming.
