Madeleine a widow of two years was finding this Christmas season to be a difficult one. Losing her soldier husband in the war at age 26 was not what she thought her life would end up looking like. Jess, a soldier that lost his arm 2 years ago went in to the local bakery to buy cookies to send to soldiers that were over seas. Immediately when Jess saw Madeleine he wanted to ask her out, but he did not have the nerve. He did not feel he was whole after losing his limb. Madeleine was shocked that the smell of the stranger, Jess, would have her emotions doing flips.

Madeleine doing a favor for her parents bakery, decided to help deliver cookie orders. Where was she sent, but to the handsome strangers work, where he was helping soldiers that were in the war. Was this meeting fate, or a master plan brought on by her family, or even an angel watching over them both.

Operation Christmas was a wonderfully written romance/holiday read. The author wrote about the difficulties being in the war can bring. You have the widow’s at home and the soldiers coming home, some come home broken either physically or mentally. The characters were drawn to each other if by nothing at first, but an understanding of the pains of war. I found myself loving both families and enjoyed the story of Madeleine’s spunky “tell it like it is” Grandmother. This was a must read for the holidays, or when you just need a good story.
