While shopping for Christmas gifts at Christian Book Distributors, I stumbled upon some great book deals, so I picked up a couple of books:
Forever Christmas by Christine Lynxwiler and The Judge Who Stole Christmas by Randy Singer.
Synopsis for Forever Christmas(taken from Amazon.com): Kristianna Harrington always dreamed of a Christmas wedding. But after two broken engagements, she's content to forget romance and run her Christmas shop in Jingle Bells, Arkansas. She thinks her biggest fear is making it down the aisle as maid of honor in her best friend's Christmas wedding, with at least one ex-fiance looking on. But when her beloved Jingle Bells is threatened, Kristianna struggles to sort through her jumbled feelings concerning the handsome lawyer hired to change the town name and her childhood sweetheart who has returned just in time to come to her aid. Will her heart discover the truth before both her town and her Christmas spirit is extinguished?
Back cover blurb for The Judge Who Stole Christmas: It starts innocently enough in the town square of Possum, Virginia. But it ends up as a spectacular national scandal: Can a federal judge outlaw Christmas?
Thomas Hammond and his wife play Joseph and Mary in the annual live nativity scene in their hometown. But a federal judge rules the display unconstitutional — and a Christmas showdown ensues. Thomas refuses to abide by the court order…and ends up in jail. From the courtrooms of Virginia to the talk shows of New York City, the battle escalates into a national media spectacle. Caught in the middle is law student Jasmine Woodfaulk — assigned to represent Thomas as part of her school’s legal aid clinic.
Both books are still available at Christian Book Distributors and Singer's book is also available at Amazon.com. Lynxwiler's book is listed as out of stock at Amazon.
While I won't get a chance to read these before this Christmas, I hope to enjoy these stories soon.
