A heartwarming Christmas story about family, friendship and finding love in unexpected places.

Joy Holbrook might be all work and no play, but that changes when her Aunt Ruby takes a fall that lands her in a rehabilitation center before the holidays. Joy takes a leave of absence from her job as a market researcher to run the family farm, even though the timing may hinder her chance at garnering the promotion of her dreams.

Ben Andrews isn’t your average accountant. He also happens to be the handiest man in Crystal Falls. He’s helped his elderly neighbor, Ruby Johnson, decorate for the annual Christmas Home Tour—and win—the last several years. He’s not about to let some drop-in niece break their winning streak.

Ruby seems overly concerned about Joy being able to handle Molly. Under the impression she’s referring Molly the bunny that is one of the menagerie of animals, Joy’s not worried at all until the next morning when a little girl named Molly shows up. For the sake of her aunt, Joy is forced to partner with Ben while Ruby is on the mend to help with preparation for the Christmas tour and, in the process finds her career-focused heart dreaming of a family.

Will the magic of Christmas help her to open her heart and find her everlasting joy?


Thanks so much for having me on your blog today. I’m so excited about the release of my latest novel, Christmas Joy. This is my first Christmas novel, and anyone who knows me knows that I’m one of the biggest Hallmark Christmas movie fanatics around. Having the chance to write a story set during this magical and spiritual time of year was extra special for me.

You asked what my top five favorite Christmas movies are.

Well, that’s tough, but my all time tippity-top-of-the-list favorite is Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. When the Abominable Snow Monster—aka the Bumble—bonks Rudolph on the head and his eyes go to spinning…I still cry every single year. Plus, there’s something about the unlikely characters like Yukon Cornelius, the misfit toys, Rudolph and Hermey that reminds us all that love and friendship knows no boundaries and does not require perfection. I love that.

To round out my top five, I have to pick my most recent favorite Hallmark movies.

A Boyfriend For Christmas

The Christmas Ornament

Christmas Under Wraps

The Christmas Note

I hope y’all will be tuning in for these favorites this winter. You can keep an eye out on my facebook page and website for dates when I’ll be hosting online virtual pajama parties with giveaways during some of these airings.

What’s more fun than watching Christmas movies with friends?

What’s your favorite Christmas movie and why?
