Just in time for Christmas…

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” – Mark Twain

Joy reunites authors Angela Amman, Mandy Dawson, and Cameron D. Garriepy for a trio of Christmas love stories shining a spotlight on the joy hiding behind life’s complications.

Trusting Starlight, by Mandy Dawson

Bouchons’ head chef Carlos and waitress Sami navigate a simmering attraction threatening to boil over. Doing her best to juggle three kids, a clueless ex-husband, and a second chance at an education, Sami isn’t ready for a relationship – especially with her much younger best friend – but she can’t ignore the way she feels when he’s near. With a nudge from a Christmas angel, Carlos decides to put his heart on the line and hope he can help his friend trust in love again.

Airport Christmas, by Angela Amman

As if solo holiday travel wasn’t lonely enough, Margot is blindsided by divorce papers moments before her return trip to an apartment that hasn’t felt like home in too long. A grounded flight, a flirtatious stranger, and a generous airport bartender provide distraction from Margot’s travel-weary life until she and her wayward husband collide en route. Forced to face the hopes and fears they’ve hidden from one another for years, can Margot and Vance take one last chance on their love?

The Soloist, by Cameron D. Garriepy

Talia Benson has the voice of an angel and a past full of secrets, but when she takes a short order cook’s position in a new town with the Christmas season hard on her heels, she’s hoping to keep a low profile. Pastor Reilly Hunt has his hands full preparing for Christmas services: the choir soloist is called out of town, the baby Jesus has gone missing, and his searches all lead back to Talia and her teenaged son. Talia is tempted by the earnest reverend’s dimpled smile and reluctantly charmed by her quirky new community, but her secrets threaten to disrupt the uneasy peace.
