PEACE ON EARTH…
And good will to men. Especially one man—Cooper Masters. But Ashley Robbins would like to be the recipient of more than good will from him….
This year Ashley has finished her education, launched her career and affirmed her faith. And she's now in a position to pay Cooper back the money he lent her for college. She's achieved all her goals—except one, and it has to do with Cooper, the man she fell in love with years ago. The man whose love she craves.
Cooper gave her the gift of her education and Ashley would like to return the favor—and offer him her love. But the greatest gift she can give him this Christmas is her own knowledge of God's love….
FROM MY PERSPECTIVE:
The Gift of Christmas, was a sweet, warm and fuzzy Christmas Romance. Ashley Robbins knew Cooper Masters for many years as her mother cooked for him. She had loved him since she was sixteen and he had assisted her in financing her education.
When she is finally able to pay him back the education money, Cooper is awed by her beauty and her fun loving personality. She is drawn to him because of his business savvy and formal demeanor....opposites attract, but they also clash.
The story is about a gal who has her life in order and she knows what she would like in a husband. She's patient enough to explain her beliefs; he's wise enough to seek his answers from those who have an answer, but the question remains, can they overcome their differences and let love grow in the middle?
Not only was this a delightful Christmas romance, it tasted of fairytale goodness and could be considered a Christian read as well.
I rated this at 4 Winks!
The second story, In the Spirit of Christmas by Linda Goodnight will be reviewed on 12-22-2014.
