Small Town Christmas by Gail Gaymer Martin

When seven-year-old twins act up in temporary teacher Amy Carroll's class, she meets their very apologetic widowed father, Mike Russet. The handsome man has his hands full—but can two mini matchmakers and holiday cheer open his heart to Christmas romance?

Her Christmas Cowboy by Brenda Minton

After being jilted a week before her wedding, Elizabeth Harden attends a bull-riding event for her dad, where she tries—unsuccessfully—to avoid bull fighter Travis Cooper, a too-handsome heartbreaker. But could her first impression of Travis be mistaken? A Christmas wedding just might be in her future, after all….

I love the fact that there are two great stories in one book. Small Town Christmas by Gail Gaymer Martin: Amy Carroll is a teacher from Chicago who is out of a job due to her school closing its doors. Needing work, she accepts a temporary teaching position in her Grandmother's small town of Harrisville. Mike Russet is a widower raising 7 year old twin daughters who are a bit of a handful and out of control, especially at school. It just so happens that the twins will be in Amy's second grade class. Amy and Mike soon find themselves being drawn to each other. Can Amy forget her past and find happiness? Is Mike ready to move on? Will the twins come between them? I really enjoyed how the author brought two lonely people together. As you read this wonderful story you will see how God played a huge part in bringing that about. This story was a great read! Her Christmas Cowboy by Brenda Minton: Elizabeth Harden was jilted by Richard a week before her wedding. Instead of being on her honeymoon she finds herself at a charity bull riding event in Tulsa. Travis Cooper is a professional bullfighter who happens to be at the same event as Elizabeth. Through circumstances due to the weather Elizabeth finds herself stranded in Tulsa. Travis's Mom invites Elizabeth to stay with them until she can get a flight back to St. Louis. Can Elizabeth learn to love again after Richard? Can she learn to trust again? Is Travis ready to settle down? Is Elizabeth the one for him? Through God's intervention a heart begins to thaw. This heart learns faith, trust, and forgiveness leads to happiness. I love how the author used Godly people and Godly actions to bring two hearts together. This story was a great read.

It was my pleasure to read Small Town Christmas. Gail Gaymer Martin has taken something unique to twins and made it extremely realistic. Having seen twin boys turn on each other out of grief made this all the more real to me. This is a story that has qualities far beyond a romance and once more this multi-tallented, multi-published author has given us a story well worth the time in reading. The depth of this story is tempered by cute antics of the twins and the great romance we¿ve all come to love that only Gail can produce. This is not a waste of anyone¿s time or money!

When Amy Carroll is laid off from her teaching job in Chicago she takes a temporary position in tiny Harrisville, Michigan, the home of her grandmother. Almost immediately, she is introduced to the most disruptive students in her class, twin girls suffering from the aftermath of their mother's death three years earlier. She also meets their apologetic, overwhelmed father. The two hit it off almost immediately, but Amy's past makes her unsure about entrusting her heart to him. And Chicago is never far from her mind. How could quaint, little Harrisville possibly compete with the exciting lifestyle the Windy City provides? As Christmas approaches, she learns that her temporary position could become a permanent one, and Amy is forced to make a life-changing decision, one that will force her to rely upon the God she fears has abandoned her. As usual, Martin's characters are believable and engaging. We are immediately drawn into their lives and quickly come to care for them. Small Town Christmas is paired with another charming tale, Her Christmas Cowboy by Brenda Minton in the book Christmas Gifts from Harlequin's popular Love Inspired imprint. This title is a quick and easy read that will provide the perfect retreat from the hectic pace of holiday preparations and will help us to refocus our attention on the real reason for the season. The phrase "curling up with a good book" could have been invented for Martin's latest romance. P.S. Don't forget the hot chocolate!
