UNTO US A CHILD... by Catherine Palmer (2 stars)
CHRISTMAS, DON'T BE LATE by Jillian Hart (5 stars)

UNTO US A CHILD by Catherine Palmer (2 stars) - In this story I liked the International Student Program and the Kenyan family that stayed in the hero's guest cottage. I also really liked the hero's two teenage sons. What ruined this story for me was the heroine. She was bossy, pushy, and forced people into doing things that they weren't comfortable with, all the while telling them that if they needed her help to let her know. Then when the people did need her help, she'd tell them that they could handle their problem themselves. She annoyed the heck out of me, I didn't care for her at all, and I lost interest in this story.

CHRISTMAS, DON'T BE LATE by Jillian Hart (5 stars) - Single mom Amanda has a young son and daughter. Her daughter has cancer and Amanda fears that this may be her daughter's last Christmas. Handsome Colton Nichols is a newcomer to town and he's there for Amanda and her kids just when they need him the most. This was a lovely, heartwarming, and heart-wrenching story with truly lovable characters and the spirit of the holiday season. Beautifully written, as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. ( )

"Unto Us a Child... "by Catherine Palmer

When Jeremiah Maddox agreed to let university administrator Lara Crane house international students in his guest cottage, he never expected he'd be hosting a married couple with three children. Nor did he imagine circumstances would compel him to babysit the family's infant at Christmastime. And what he least expected was to fall for the woman responsible for turning his life upside down!

"Christmas, Don't Be Late" by Jillian Hart

When a misunderstanding caused millionaire Colton Nichols to be taken for Santa Claus by neighbor Amanda Richards's young son, Colton was determined to keep his distance. But the Christmas-wish letter Jeremy sent broke his heart--Jeremy asked only that his sick sister be well and his mom's heart not be sad. Colton found himself praying for just that--and wishing this family were his own.
