    Love This Series!

    I read Miracles and Mischief, the first book in this series, which I LOVED! I had to grab a copy of Stolen Miracles as soon as it released. This series is just fabulous. With a touch of humor and many heart-tugging moments it is destined for my keeper shelf. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    Although Rebecca Gillespie and her daughter survived a fatal ca


    Although Rebecca Gillespie and her daughter survived a fatal car accident that took her husband’s life, Rebecca had remained in a long-term coma with little hope of recovery. Her estranged mother-in-law, who was suffering from cancer, had power of attorney. Since she was unable to care for the little girl, she put her up for adoption in Mills Land, where Rebecca lived. Once recovered, Rebecca searched for years to find her daughter, to no avail.

    Cole and Leah Seibert adopted an infant girl after she miscarried twice. However, a genetic heart condition took Leah’s life at an early age, leaving Cole to raise their daughter, Kimmy, alone.

    Kimmy missed the kindergarten cut-off date by just days, so Cole needed to register her at a preschool. The one he chose was Precious Miracles, run by none other than Rebecca Gillespie. Prior to the registration, Cole was clueless that Rebecca had been looking for her adopted daughter.

    Mary’s take on Rebecca’s initial conversation with Cole through the intercom was hilarious, mainly because he was late and she was hungry. The author then takes us into the wild world of flirtatious bantering between Rebecca and Cole, though they’d never admit it at the time. Instead of registering, their bantering and reminiscing about their old skating pasts lasted almost the whole time; he was in hockey, and she skated at Mills Land’s arena. Though they both secretly had colossal crushes on each other in high school, neither had spoken up. They later dated and married different people.

    Since they spent too much time reminiscing, Cole took the registration papers home to bring back in the morning when he brought Kimmy to preschool, because he needed to order a birthday cake for Kimmy’s birthday before 7:00 p.m.

    The next morning, Cole arrived so early with Kimmy that only Rebecca was there. Again she listened to them talking over the intercom. Only this time, she was taken aback by Kimmy’s resemblance to herself and their father/daughter talk. She finally let them in.

    This is where the hard stuff starts. Mary nailed it with the conversations that followed as to whether Kimmy was Rebecca’s daughter. The pain and agony were sweltering off the pages of the book, causing me to empathize with how each parent felt along with their not knowing what to do next. It was hard enough to know Rebecca had been looking for her daughter, but to think she found her and her old crush had her was painfully and tensely depicted. Neither wanted to hurt the other or cause stress for Kimmy, but they both wanted her.

    What a wonderfully written novel of the grief, pain, and agony of a non-consented adoption coupled with the loss of their spouses. Yet you can feel the author revel with us in their love and faith that epitomizes the rest of the story’s unwinding. Mary’s book really touched my heart deeply because of the subject matter and how well she handled it.

    This PDF book copy was provided free by the author in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was received.

    Stolen Miracles is a tearjerker with one of the happiest endings you will ever find anywhere! I loved the first book in this series, MIracles and MIschief, and Stolen MIracles is just as wonderful.

    Heartwarming & Tender Christian fiction! Friends from the pa

    Heartwarming & Tender Christian fiction!
    Friends from the past, Rebecca and Cole had never revealed their attraction to one another. As they traveled their separate paths they drifted apart, each finding love with another. Rebecca and Steve were expecting their first child when an automobile accident claimed the life of Rebecca's husband and left Rebecca in a coma with little hope of recovery. Her child was delivered by C-section and placed for adoption. When Rebecca survived and resumed her life she began the search for her child, unable to come to grips with her loss. Cole had lost his wife to a heart attack several months ago, and was struggling to raise his daughter alone. A chance reunion brought the two together again, and recognition and an unsettling attraction surfaced.

    The author created beautiful character description and a plot with many facets in this heartwarming and romantic story of two people lost in their grief, searching for God's direction in their lives. The events throughout the book bring about a gamut of emotions. This story is very well writen, and is filled with tenderness and inspiration. I will probably read it again.

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    I've read several of Mary's novellas, and each one has been enjoyable. Her second book in the 'Miracles at Mills Landing' almost suspended my disbelief a bit too far, but the warmth of the characters and the heart of the story redeemed the book for me.

    Rebecca Gillespie has spent five years in mourning for her husband, lost in a tragic car accident that nearly took her life as well. Her greatest loss remains a mystery she's working to solve: what happened to her unborn child? Who has her daughter and where is she?

    Cole Siebert is mourning his own loss, and struggling to raise his five year old daughter with the help of his sister and her husband. But Cole's sister is about to give birth to twins, so child care is at the top of his 'must find' list. Will Rebecca's preschool be his solution?

    As Cole and Rebecca become friends and get closer to one another, truth comes to light that threatens all that they've known. Will the bonds they've forged be enough to get them through, or will a stolen miracle keep them apart?

    I think you've read enough about Mary's novels to know how this one ends. Once again, the characters are rich and engaging, and she has a way of drawing you into the story from the first pages. I really enjoyed getting to know Kimmy Siebert, Cole's spunky little girl. Mary writes her scenes with humor and heart.

    I'm looking forward to more stories from Mary's imagination. Just hoping the next few aren't quite so neat and tidy...a small mustard seed of realism wouldn't add an extra dimension to the reading. But escapism never hurts!
