Mistletoe Courtship

One of the books that Im currently reading is called "Mistletoe Courtship". This includes
2 "shorter" stories - One is called "Christmas Bells for Dry Creek" by Janet Tronstad and the
second story is called "The Christmas Secret".
UPDATE:  I finished this book, and really enjoyed this Story!
4 stars

Christmas Bells for Dry Creek
by Janet Tronstad
The holiday season brings a surprise for Virginia. Colter Wells, is back in Dry Creek—with a newly discovered daughter. I like the way the characters work together to make a new family, and give guidance to his daughter.

Janet Tronstad won a award for this Novella - see more at her blog.. Dry Creek Days

I'm so excited. Every year the American Christian Fiction Writers hold a contest for Book-of-the-Year in various categories. My 'Christmas Bells for Dry Creek' (in Mistletoe Courtship) just won in the historical novella group. Over 600 people (writers, editors, agents) were at a dinner Sunday night in their evening wear when the awards were announced.

The Christmas Secret
by Sara Mitchell

( from the back of the book.. )

Clara Penrose's bluestocking ways have branded her a spinster among Virginia's elite. Yet a reunion with Dr. Ethan Harcourt rekindles feelings Clara thought long lost. Her second chance finally here, Clara needs only to catch the good doctor under the mistletoe!
