“Christmas Bells” was fun to read. I had quite a bit of fun reading this Christmas novel and catching up with the characters from A Bride for the Sheriff and A Lady for the Lawman. The introduction of Diana, the Christmas angel, was another enjoyable element. As I read, I found myself tracking the bells and deriving pleasure from watching a satisfying happy ending unfold.
Christmas has come to the frontier town of Omaha in this delightful novella. Connie the owner of Rose’s Café, now a widow with a small boy has decided to take some time from her busy schedule running two restaurants to attend her friend’s birthday. James, the only doctor in town attends the party, too. The couple enjoys each other’s company and both begin to realize they’ve put their personal lives on hold for far too long. A sinister plot from the town banker, a baby born on a cold Christmas eve night, and a visit from a mysterious stranger all make this novella a perfect Christmas read.
