Product Description
Lucy Collins has given up on Christmas since the painful break-up with her fiance. Things only get worse when a large newspaper is about to come to town and threatens the livelihood of their family run business, The Turtle Creek Newspaper. At the staff Christmas party, she makes a wish and what seems like the answer to her prayer walks in the front door to apply for the editor position, which they are hoping will bring new life to the paper. Not only is Joe McNamara a genius when it comes to the written word, but he is also gifted with ideas about keeping the newspaper afloat. However, Joe has a secret of his own that he is keeping from Lucy. If she finds it out, then what looks like a promising relationship will unravel, but it's Christmas time, the season of rebirth and miracles. Will the spirit of celebration be enough to heal two hearts? Or will the reality of deception make this the worst Christmas of all?

My Review:
This is a wonderful Christmas story. Its the first in a series of books set in Turtle Creek. I love the fact its set in a small rural town as I also live in a small rural town (only my town is bigger).
Lucy isn't looking forward to Christmas as it has bad memories for her. Enter Joe who makes her feel differently about Christmas. I love how Robin has written this book leaving you wanting to know more. I needed to know Joe's story and didn't want to put the book down till I found his story. I love how Robin did this. I wanted to know more about Lucy also. I wasn't disappointed in this story. If you enjoy Christmas stories and reading about peoples lives you wont be disappointed reading this book, it was like a glimpse into a smaller community and how a small newspaper is more like family than a group of employees.
I would give this book 4.5 out of 5 well worth reading.
I cant wait for the next book.
