A Christmas for Katie - Shelley Shepard Gray


4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Will a little Amish girl make a Christmas miracle?

It isn’t easy to be Katie Weaver. Her sister-in-law Ella is about to have a baby, making Katie an aunt for the second time … and she’s only six and a half! Plus, her favorite librarian, Miss Donovan, seems sad. She won’t even fix up the rundown nativity in front of the library in time for Christmas. Then, an old woman is attacked outside the library, and, one by one, the nativity figures start to disappear!

Luckily, there’s a new deputy in town, Connor Fields. He takes a real liking to Miss Donovan … and he promises to find the missing nativity pieces for Katie.

Now, all Katie has to do is pray that Ella’s delivery goes well and that some kind of nativity is in place for Christmas Eve. Oh, and that Miss D. falls in love with Connor. Katie knows from watching her three brothers that it makes people real happy. And that would be a Christmas miracle indeed!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
I grew up in Houston, Texas, went to Colorado for college, and after living in Arizona, Dallas, and Denver, we moved to southern Ohio about ten years ago.
 I started writing about the Amish because their way of life appealed to me. I wanted to write stories about regular. likeable people in extraordinary situations-and who just happened to be Amish.
Getting the opportunity to write Inspirational novels is truly gratifying. With every book, I feel my faith grows stronger. And that makes me feel very special indeed.

MY THOUGHTS - Book 7 of my Holiday reading!
A very simple but sweet Christmas Novella. This quick one had a little of everything. A little mystery, a little romance, and a little Christmas spirit.
Good character development. all the characters were likable and true/believable. There was a mix of Amish and "English" so it made the story that much more interesting.
The ending, however, was a little more open ended than I would have liked.
But still a great story!

This was a freebie on amazon for me. It is now 1.99, still a great deal.
