    One thought on “The Hope of Christmas”

    1. First of all… this cover is so pretty, isn’t it? It makes me want to build a snowman and drink hot cocoa by a cozy fire The stories inside are just as cozy and warm! Picking a Bride for Paul by Jodie Wolfe is cute and romantic – the story of two friends who are clueless to their real feelings for each other. Teddy (the heroine) is a feisty tomboy who still longs to be in charge of her own home. Um… but her cooking skills and her ability to be ladylike still need a bit of work – and thi [...]

    2. Three historical authors came together to create an amazing collection of Christmas novellas in The Hope of Christmas. Each author continues to write in their usual style and era. The characters are realistic with depth that drew me into each tale. Jodie Wolfe’s novella is set in 1876 with the western and ranch setting, which I’ve come to enjoy by Wolfe. There was a challenge of a well to do Eastern mail order bride visiting a ranch and disbelief that Teddy Love and her sisters work like the [...]

    7. My Penny’s worthThe hope of Christmas – Three books in onePicking a Bride for PaulPaul and Teddy are likeable characters who carry off this story in a sweet way. What is there not to like about these two people who dance around one another – well Teddy does as Paul has a broken leg!Enter Catherine, not my cup of tea, who niggles me enough to want to shake some sense into this silly woman. Jodie Wolfe’s writing is smart as she has me bristling at the audacity of Catherine’s pomposity. U [...]

    8. When Celebrate Lit Publishing decided to put together a book of hope for the holidays, they chose some excellent authors. This trio of Christmas novellas is a prize! All three are Christian historical romance, one set in the old west and the other two in World War II.The first one, Picking a Bride for Paul, is a sweet-and-sour hit. Paul Baker needs a wife.

    9. Reviewed at The Power of Words: bit/2kxnNaKThe Hope of Christmas is a delightful collection with a variety of elements that should appeal to any reader. I expected this to be an enjoyable, but typical, romance collection – but it is so much more! All three are very well written and captured my attention immediately. There’s more character development than you find in most novellas, and two stories feature relationships already established, eliminating the “too quick to be believable” ele [...]

    12. Picking a Bride for Paul is a wonderful heartfelt story of a lonely man who decides to send for a mail order bride. The main characters of Paul and his best friend, Teddy are well developed and I connected with them right away. Teddy is a very caring and rather quirky character who is independent, but values her friendship with Paul. Paul was an independent person but because of an injury is forced to let Teddy care for him. There is a lot of tension in the story which makes the storyline very i [...]

    13. Picking a Bride for Paul: Having met Teddy Love in the novella "An Angel for the Cowboy" included in the collection "Let Love Spring", it was fun to see her get her own happily-ever-after. I thought it was cute how Essie and Kitty had to tell Teddy that she was in love with Paul. I can't wait for Kitty's story.Typhoon Prompting: Typhoon Prompting is a story that doesn't fit easily into a cut and dried genre. It has some elements of romance and some adventure. Unlike most stories, it only follows [...]

    16. The Hope of Christmas is a fun collection of historical romance novellas. I was privileged to read a complimentary copy from the publisher. My favorite was the first one, Picking a Bride for Paul by Jodie Wolfe. I found it laugh-out-loud funny and totally enjoyed the characters!

It had just enough story to keep you reading an [...]

    17. Three entirely different novella’s that can be quickly read, they deal with a bit of romance, but once you start you won’t put it down until you finish, at least that story.The first reminds us that we sometimes think that grass is greener on the other side, we don’t even see what is before our eyes. It is a way different mail order bride story, and surprises abound for those involved.The second tells of a time in our history, our loved one goes off to war, and that maybe the last time we [...]

    18. Around Christmas time, the schedule gets tighter and the things I want to do (read!) get shoved aside for what must be done. Novellas are an excellent choice for my time-crunched schedule and discovering new authors I enjoy is a nice bonus. I found this collection to be a great diversion I could pick up for a little while without letting too much slide by getting caught up in the pages, but only because the length is shorter. The stories are all fantastic contributions to the collection and I li [...]

    22. This is an enjoyable collection of historical novellas. I found the quality of writing to be consistently good. One characteristic of novellas I dislike is the necessity, because of their shortness, to have a very quickly developing romance. Two of the authors cleverly avoided that by having their story as a part of a long standing relationship. I like that.I recommend these stories for reading during the Christmas season. Each one can be read in an evening and contains a strong Christian messag [...]

    23. This book is three novellas. The first one is a western themed story. It's cute and has a nice HEA ending. It has a strong Christ-centered core message that I liked. The second story was a bit more aggravating at first. This guy has a wonderful woman waiting back home, sending him letters while he's at sea in a war, and he's not sure he's going to marry her? Sighs, but hang in there, it picks up shortly. God has saved him for a reason. The last story was brave, bold and strong. It had strong dyn [...]

They have different settings then you might expect with these novellas and I appreciated that.I love what these authors packed into a short read, they managed to get all it all in, character development, setting and of course Jesus. If you want a few quick reads I recommend this one.A c [...]

    25. My Take:Each of these stories were quick and easy reads. The first story I really didn't care for. I enjoyed the other two. Both very Christmasy, and with historical flare. If I chose a favorite it would be Typhoon Prompting. I love anything about the Navy, and this was a fun story.My bottom line:All three books have sweet romances with Christmas spirit. Each book is unique, and very quick easy read. With the busyness of the holiday season it's nice to have a getaway that doesn't take much thoug [...]

    28. I enjoyed these three Christmas novellas that are quick reads for the busyness of the season. Each story deals with Christmas, romance, and difficulties of life. Each were well written, but I missed the depth of a full length novel . I just wanted more. I especially enjoyed the Dr. being a woman during WWII and all the obstacles she faced because of her rank.
