The Baby’s Christmas Blessing
Welcome back to our annual blog series spotlighting (over 60 again this year) new and recently-released Christmas reads!
Christmas is only 18 days away, according to Google, but of course it’s never too early for Christmas stories, and ’tis the season when I really start craving them (even more than I do the rest of the year lol), so now is the perfect time to jump right into these posts!
Continuing through just after Christmas, I’m going to spotlight several Christmasy releases from 2022. Most days will have more than one post, just FYI. So… snuggle in, grab your fave hot beverage and comfiest blanket, turn on some Christmas tunes and start your bookish Christmas list! Oh… and did I mention there are GIVEAWAYS with EACH POST in this series??!! (Because authors are awesome!)

with a newborn as matchmaker!
Nothing will be merry about Steve Weston’s Christmas if he doesn’t find a nanny for his newborn nephew fast. But the best choice is Chloe Richardson, the woman he pushed away years ago. He has a second chance at making the season’s joy last for a lifetime—unless he allows old wounds to separate them once more…

The Time My Dad Interrupted My Christmas Party… to Host a Math Bee!
by Meghann Whistler, author of The Baby’s Christmas Blessing
When I was ten, my family moved across the country. I was a shy kid, and I was put into a split classroom where there were only three other kids my age. Needless to say, I had trouble making friends.
That Christmas, in an effort to help me and my little sister fit in better, my mom organized a cookie decorating party for us and all of the kids from our split class at school. She baked tons of gingerbread men and sugar cookies and bought lots of icing, sprinkles, and other goodies for us to use.
Of course, when you have a roomful of kids hopped up on Christmas cookies, things can get a little loud. My dad, coming home from work into all this chaos, decided that the surest way to make everyone calm down was to get us all to stand in a straight line in the front hallway…so he could quiz us on our times tables!!! 😆
The best part? The prize he was offering the winner was…wait for it…a quarter!!! And he just couldn’t understand why no one was very enthusiastic about this “fun” game.
My sister and I were mortified, and the party broke up soon after. We never asked our mom to host another Christmas party, but the things that don’t go perfectly are usually the ones that are the most memorable, and we get the biggest laughs when we tell the story of that long-ago Christmas cookie party now!
