Time to Curl up with a great book!!

MY THOUGHTS:

         This is the first book that I've read by Alexa Verde and won't be the last. I loved these stories. Stories of just regular people and some not so regular that face decisions to make changes or not make changes in their lives. They are packed full of the importance of family, romance, hospitality and kindness. Set aside plenty of time, once you start reading you won't stop. You'll love it!!!

Blessings,
Karen

I received this book as a gift and all opinions are my own.

Sweet, faith-filled, wholesome Christian romances to warm your heart! Three full-length Christmas novels about faith, love, and second chances, together for the first time in this collection. Let a book trip to Rios Azules, a small town in south Texas with quirky residents and caring community, bring you joy and put a smile on your face! Join three unlikely couples as they let God work miracles in their lives and find love, hope, and future together. 

Book 1 Season of Miracles 
New beginning or new heartache?
Nurse Lana Smith gives herself a gift for Christmas, a fresh start in a small town. After escaping a dead-end relationship with a celebrity, she avoids her patient's grandson, a pro football player. When Arturo gradually thaws her frozen heart, can her Christmas wish for family and affection come true?
Football is Arturo De La Vega's life, but he returns to his hometown to help his ailing grandfather. Lana challenges Arturo to reach for stars of faith and love. Is Arturo's quest for glory worth crushing Lana's dreams and sacrificing his heart's true desire?

Book 2 Season of Joy
Second chance or second heartbreak?
Single dad Dylan McGregor wants to give his two sons the best life possible in the small town where he'd grown up. When his youngest son writes a letter to God asking for a Mom for Christmas, Dylan reluctantly starts dating again. His lifelong friend, Joy Avila, agrees to help him find the right woman. Then Dylan begins to see Joy in a new light and believes she's the right woman for him and his family.
Overweight and teased in school, Joy never hoped her first crush, Dylan McGregor, would return her feelings. Confident and successful now, she's found her passion in writing about international travels. The trip of a lifetime awaits her after the holidays. Instead, will she find her dreams right there in Rios Azules?

Book 3 Season of Hope
Kelly Young wants to heal after losing her husband and to raise her little girl the best she can in her hometown. But her new neighbor, former wide receiver Brandon Carmichael, seems to intend to demolish his fixer-upper and her hopes for peace and quiet. When he helps her to repair her home, keeps her flower shop business afloat, and makes her hope and love again, could it be that Brandon is exactly what she needs?
After a forced retirement, Brandon Carmichael is angry and lost, one step away from the familiar path of self-destruction. Moving to a small town at his friend's suggestion, Brandon surprises himself by getting involved in its community and starting to fall for his pretty neighbor, single mom Kelly Young. But when his past collides with his present, can he forgive, love, and live fully again?
