Hope at Christmas by Nancy Naigle


Nancy Naigle delivers a heartwarming Christmas story that proves you can always go home again.

Sydney Ragsdale is looking for a fresh start far away from her controlling ex-husband and the self-doubt that has plagued her since the divorce. Returning to her childhood home in Hopewell, North Carolina is just what her soul needs. Praying some Christmas magic will follow her she moves with her daughter to a farmhouse that once belonged to her grandparents. While there Sydney finds solace working at The Book Bea, her favorite bookstore.

Single dad Kevin MacAlea, Mac to his friends, is the local high school history teacher and baseball coach. He is also the towns best kept secret—he has been playing Santa since his son was born twelve years ago. Mac loves the enchantment of the season and wants his son to share in his joy.

When a catastrophe forces The Book Bea to close before the end of the year, everyone in the small town is feeling the loss. While Sydney is already off-balance by the bad news, her ex-husband breaks a promise to their daughter that sends her running away and threatens the relationship that she has begun with Mac.

As Sydney and Mac try to figure out what their next steps are together they will soon discover that there’s always hope at Christmas.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Sydney is blindsided months earlier when her husband leaves her in a note. Determined to make herself and her daughter a priority, she leaves Atlanta and moves to the home her grandparents left her. She has a job that will start just after the holidays and all she wants is to make a better life for her daughter, Rayanne. And to get past the heartache caused by her divorce.

Finding The Book Bea again, the small town bookstore she spent many of hours in during her youth, gives her a sense of home that she'd been looking for. Making a friend with Ms. Bea and landing a part-time job makes Sydney think that this was the right move for them, whether Rayanne sees it now or not.

As Sydney gets to know old friends again and make new ones, she's finally finding her groove. Her friendship with Mac grows as does the friendship between their children. When tragedy strikes, Mac is there to help her hold on and to create new traditions that will sustain them for years to come.

The author did the characters a great service by giving them time to get to know each other, their likes and dislikes, before having Sydney and Mac really discuss their feelings about each other. It was a natural progression from friends to more. Seeing the dynamics between their children made this book even more special.



USA Today bestselling author NANCY NAIGLE whips up small-town love stories with a dash of suspense and a whole lot of heart.
