Two broken women, two defeated children. Can Grace offer what they’re looking for? When the big city holds nothing but painful memories for sisters Rence and Sandy, they pack it up and head out for Grace and the promises it holds.

Promises of a new start. A new job at Grace General for Rence and a place to begin healing. But most of all, a promise to each of the sisters’ hurting children that a real Christmas awaits them in Grace, complete with snow on giant evergreens and lots of Mistletoe Magic.

But despite its Christmas card atmosphere, Grace, Oregon seems to hold a lot of secrets. Who is that giant of a man they encounter in the woods? Why won’t anyone talk about him? What is the hold the past seems to have over the town? Will they be able to break it before history tragically repeats itself? And will Grace be the place where love and forgiveness finally meet?

Christian Romance with a Christmas time setting = a Must read for me! Mistletoe Village by Kathleen J. Robison is the latest book I have read and I am excited to talk about it. 

Rence and Sandy are sisters who have lived in a big city for a long time. The Big City holds painful memories so they decide to pack it up and move with their children(each having one child) to small town Grace, Oregon. Rence has secured a new job at Grace General and she is excited about what lies ahead for her and her daughter, especially after a divorce that wasn't smooth. Sandy and her son Josiah are also excited to be moving. The 4 of them are really excited to be celebrating Christmas in a small town and with Snow and Cold. They get lost on the way to their Rental home and come across a giant man who has a rifle and ax and has blood all over the place. They are determined not to let anything steal their joy of new changes and new life, not even a mystery that Rence is intrigued by. Will they settle into the small town and be able to leave the past in the past? How does the man with the rifle and ax impact Rence? 

I really enjoyed this book from the very beginning. I enjoy visiting Small Towns and LOVE that Small Towns are so welcoming to others. The fact that Rence, Sandy, and their children connected with the residents of Grace, Oregon in the early days of being there, warmed my heart. The mystery man added excitement and intrigue to the storyline. I LOVE how Rence co-workers at the hospital helped Carl and gave him encouragement when he was accused of something he didn't do. The Characters rely on God to get them through the rough times. The book has Mystery, Romance, Friendship, and Faith. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Romance! GREAT BOOK!

More from Kathleen

I love Christmas stories, and since becoming an author, I’ve wanted to write one. Mistletoe Village started out as Mistletoe Hermit, but then it wasn’t going in quite the happy direction that I wanted. So Mistletoe Village was born. I wrote this sweet, cozy, slightly suspenseful romance with all the elements that make Christmas … Christmas! But most importantly, it’s always about the faith element, Christ.

The main character Rence Paladin is dear to my heart. She was created with someone extraordinary in mind, and I had that person read the book to see what she thought. When she finished, she turned bright red and answered, even if you hadn’t told me … I knew it was me! However, it’s not her story, but it encompasses her delightful personality, some of her sweet memories of a single-mom, and how she strives to keep her focus on Christ while always serving others.

So let’s go. Let me take you to Mistletoe Village. You’ll find a little of everything that oozes Christmas in the tiny town of Grace. Holiday spirit, decorations, a children’s church pageant, and a Christmas festival. Oh, and I’ll introduce you to little Gus, the feisty family cock-a-poo. But most of all, I hope you, like Rence and Carl, rediscover the joy of Christmas at Mistletoe Village.
