Her Holiday Lawman
Welcome back to our annual blog series spotlighting (over 60 again this year) new and recently-released Christmas reads!
Christmas is only 15 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!)

Dreaming of a perfect Christmas
The Lawman’s Yuletide Baby by Ruth Logan Herne
Widow Corinne Gallagher’s plans for a peaceful Christmas with her kids go astray when longtime crush Gabe Cutler moves in next door. As if having the handsome state trooper within snowball-throwing distance isn’t distracting enough, Gabe suddenly has custody of an orphaned baby and is in need of Corinne’s help! She agrees, but her heart draws a line—she can’t fall for another lawman!
The Deputy’s Holiday Family by Mindy Obenhaus
Lacie Collier wants to give her niece, Kenzie, the best Christmas! But that won’t be easy while spending the holidays with Lacie’s Christmas-averse mother. Sheriff’s deputy Matt Stephens is surprised to see Lacie back in Ouray. He’s always regretted that their friendship became strained after he started dating her sister in high school. But he’s more than shocked when he sees Kenzie, whose resemblance to Matt is undeniable…
by Ruth Logan Herne, author of Her Holiday Lawman
When I wrote “The Lawman’s Yuletide Baby” (and no, I did not get to choose the title, LOL!) it was part of a beautiful series of stories set in Grace Haven, NY… Grace Haven is tucked in the Finger Lakes region of central New York, a valley of long, slim lakes, named because it was like God laid his hand against the verdant valley and created the tapered, thin, beautiful bodies of water. Surrounded by vineyards and farms and now sprinkled with mansions overlooking the narrow waters, the Grace Haven location allowed the setting to be a solid base for storytelling.
Gabe and Corinne aren’t in a mansion.
She’s a crisis pregnancy nurse and a widow, with no small amount of angst in life as a single mother.
Gabe is deputy sheriff and a coach, a strong man with a guilt-filled past.
He doesn’t dare embrace a future.
She can’t risk another loss.
And then a baby comes along. A “basket baby”, only in this case it’s a car seat baby, tucked on Gabe’s porch. There they are, next door neighbors, weighted down, and then a yawning, smiling, hungry, pants-filling baby appears and suddenly the yearnings of yesterday turn into the hope of tomorrow.
I love Christmas stories. I love stories of redemption, homecoming, prodigals, overcoming, forgiveness and joy… around the recognition that God is with us! Emmanuel!
I’d love for you to win or buy this wonderful book “Her Holiday Lawman” featuring my story and Mindy’s… we are blessed to be in this book together. And blessed to be friends. And I’m wishing you the most lovely and cherished Christmas ever… filled with faith, hope and love.
Be faithful in the little things… and faith will support you in all the big ones! God is good!
