Two Christmas stories - one historical, one contemporary - under one cover!

Love Finds You under the Mistletoe: An Appalachian Christmas

A promise to her dying sister compels Julia Mayfield to take her young nephew to Mistletoe, Kentucky, a tiny town tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. Sparks fly when she meets David Armstrong, a World War II veteran like herself. Even as shadows from the past weave a dangerous web around Julia and David, will their love flourish like the mistletoe that blankets the nearby hills?

Love Finds You under the Mistletoe: Once Upon a Christmas Eve

Hollie Goodnight's store has just been voted best Christmas shop in America. All the new publicity draws flamboyant novelist Van Keaton to the cozy town of Noel, Missouri, demanding to write Hollie's story - a dramatic tale of misfortune and triumph. She is swept up in his world of beautiful words and fanciful interludes. . .until Owen Quigly, her lifelong best friend, launches a plan to win her back.

Roxie’s Review . . . Very good book!  Two stories in one book – what more could one ask (especially when both are so entertaining)!

An Appalachian Christmas is set in rural Kentucky in the 1940’s. It’s a story of family dedication to God and some romance, with a happy ending.

Once upon a Christmas Eve by Anita Higman is set in Noel, Missouri in the present. It’s a poignant story about child abandonment, adoption, family values, and Christian principles. It too ends well, following interesting twists and turns.

I recommend both stories to anyone who enjoys Christmas romance.
