Two years ago, Noelle North's then-fiancé left her waiting at the church on Christmas--her wedding day and birthday. Two years later, she knows she cannot endure another holiday season at home in Boston. At the urging of four women at the assisted-living community where she serves as health director, Noelle decides to rent Seashell Cottage on the Gulf Coast of Florida for the holidays. She meets Silas Bellingham, the cutest seven-year-old boy she's ever seen, and his great-grandmother, Althea. Noelle discovers Althea's caretaker has been abusing her and goes into action, ending up with the temporary care of both Althea and Silas. Becoming part of the Bellingham household has an entirely different series of challenges when it comes to Althea's grandsons, Jake and Brett, who are having problems of their own with hotels to run and their parents missing in a plane crash. But after sparring with her, Silas' father, Jake, realizes Noelle is just what he and his family need, and when she finds the perfect Christmas star for Silas, they both know he's right.

About the Author

Judith Keim enjoyed her childhood and young-adult years in Elmira, New York, and now makes her home in Boise, Idaho, with her husband and their two dachshunds, Winston and Wally, and other members of her family.
While growing up, she was drawn to the idea of writing stories from a young age. Books were always present, being read, ready to go back to the library, or about to be discovered. All in her family shared information from the books in general conversation, giving them a wealth of knowledge and vivid imaginations.
A hybrid author who both has a publisher and self-publishes, Ms. Keim writes heart-warming novels about women who face unexpected challenges, meet them with strength, and find love and happiness along the way. Her best-selling books are based, in part, on many of the places she's lived or visited and on the interesting people she's met, creating believable characters and realistic settings her many loyal readers love. Ms. Keim loves to hear from her readers and appreciates their enthusiasm for her stories.

This was a spectacular story about how you can find love, when you’re least expecting it. I loved how Noelle stepped up to right the wrong of Althea being abused by her nurse. Silas, great-grandson of Althea is absolutely adorable. The dad, Jake, and the uncle, Brett, of Silas are totally shocked that their Gran was being abused. Grab your copy and get ready to fall in love with these wonderful characters. If you enjoy a book with a Christmas setting, you will not be disappointed.

A Christmas Star is such a wonderful story. On the beach, Noelle meets a young boy named Silas. Then she meets his great grandmother. Noelle, a nurse specializing in elder care, quickly discerns that the grandmother is being abused by her caregiver. Noelle tosses the caregiver out.. I mention that much of the plot so you can see what a special person Noelle is. Silas is another character that steals into your heart. Believable characters, a darling, boy and more than one Christmas miracle make this a story I will reread many times. Reminiscent of a Hallmark movie, this is a book that you do not want to miss!
