THE EVERGREEN BRIDE and DESTINATION CHRISTMAS novellas by Pam Hillman, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

The Evergreen Bride
Sweet novella about a Mississippi Miss who wants to journey to Chicago to visit a cousin in order to experience a white Christmas. Can she see the prize before her in Samuel, her brother’s best friend and partner in a saw mill? School teacher Annabelle longs to see a white Christmas. Samuel’s thoughtful gift shows her that she doesn’t have to venture far in order to find happiness.

Well written, happy story, just in time for Christmas.

BackCover Blurb:
Mississippian Annabelle Denson dreams of visiting cousins in Illinois and seeing a white Christmas. In the face of her excitement, Samuel Frazier hides his growing affection for her behind a quiet smile and a carpenter’s lathe. As her departure draws near, Samuel starts to worry that if she goes, Annabelle won’t return. Can he convince her to return to the Mississippi Piney Woods -- and to him?

Destination Christmas
Based on a true incident, the author fleshes out the story with likable characters and a little romance thrown in. She uses an avalanche on the train tracks to show Katie and Creed’s sterling qualities. Katie pitches in and occupies the children and helps with the heavy work as well. Creed takes initiative and guides the occupants of the train including children. Who doesn’t like a hero who is good with children?

This was a short and sweet story of making the best out of adversity and finding love at the same time.

BackCover Blurb:
At her aunt’s insistence, rancher's daughter Katie Haversham reluctantly boards a train leaving The Dalles to be introduced into Portland society at Christmastime. Who knew she’d fall for Creed Browning, a cowboy more suited to her hopes and dreams than any she’d find in high society, long before she reaches her destination? An avalanche waylays the train, and while the passengers fight for survival in the snowed-in pass, Creed and Katie fall in love. But can they escape the disapproval of Katie's aunt Matilda, or perhaps worse, the wealthy but selfish woman who wants to make Katie her daughter-in-law? And if Christmas arrives before the stranded passengers are rescued, can they manage to make the holiday a merry one?

Buy Destination Christmas at Amazon

*I give these both a 4 star rating with a slight faith thread.
