Small Town Christmas by Gale Gaymer Martin

My book review today is on the first book in the Christmas Gifts novella by Love Inspired. I really liked this story. Gail is an awesome writer and I have always enjoyed her work. Plus I love Christmas stories and I had a set of twins so of course I loved this one.

Amy Carroll lost her job in Chicago and moved home temporarily to take over a second grade class. Before she even starts her first day she meets Mike Russet, the father of a set of twin girls. The girls are acting out in class , probably because of the death of their mother. Amy has her hands full as tries to figure out how to handle the girls and to keep ahead of their matchmaking attempts.

Mike Russet is a widower who allowed his girls to become bullies and run all over him in his grief. Amy's grandmother babysit for him and is able to control the girls but Mike has no idea how to do that. He soon sees that Amy is able to handle them and asks for tips on how to deal with them. While the girls decide Amy is perfect for them.

A very cute story. I know you will all enjoy. Have a great week and God bless you.


  1. Glenda, Thanks for the very nice reivew of this book. Wishing you Christmas blessings and I appreciate you as a reader and one who enjoys my novels. The beginning of 2014 will see two new novels - 2nd and 3rd books in the Sisters series (follows Her Valentine Hero) and also a collection called The British Brides which includes a historical novella called The Apple of His Eye - and is based on true history of my family in England. It was fun to take some true facts and twist them a bit so they created a fictitious story.

    1. Thanks for commenting, I can't wait to read your next books. I love your work. God bless you and have a Merry Christmas.
