CHRISTMAS AT MISTLETOE SQUARE by Pepper Basham, Cara Putman, Janine Rosche, and Teresa Tysinger - Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay

Four noted Christian authors put their own spin on romance in a Christmas themed town.

The Christmas Clue to Finding You- Pepper Basham: An annual scavenger hunt for the perfect date. Was Piper’s old classmate really someone to avoid at all costs? She will follow the clues to her happily ever after. Told with the authors signature wit.

Silver Bell Secrets- Cara Putman: Avery Blair has a secret that makes her wary of a book deal from a persistent publisher. But Hunter tries to get on her good side by stuffing the book donation box in her combination book shop/coffee bar. A little suspense, too!

An Unscripted Christmas- Teresa Tysinger: A story of a seemingly stable marriage of an older couple. Ellie and Oliver learn to recapture their Happily Ever After and realize that communication and listening to God is important in their relationship.

Dreams In Toyland- Janine Rosche: Peyton, a small toyshop owner jumps to conclusions about Joey Killjoy, Santa’s helper in disguise. Lots of great Christmas references from nostalgic toys to A Christmas Carol.


These come across with the spirit of cooperation, selfless giving and forgiveness. Just the thing to get you in the Christmas Spirit. Well done ladies!

Christmas is in the air in Kedgewick Creek, North Carolina, at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Find out in this collection of four novellas from inspirational authors Pepper Basham, Cara Putman, Janine Rosche, and Teresa Tysinger.

The Christmas Clue to Finding You by Pepper Basham
After five years away, Piper Dawson returns home to Kedgewick Creek and is pulled into a Christmas Scavenger Hunt that resurrects a heartbreak from Christmas past she’s not quite ready to mend. Will a matchmaking granny, a little Christmas magic, and a cute guy in a kilt make all the difference to her Christmas yet-to-come?

Silver Bell Secrets by Cara Putman
Growing up with dyslexia, Avery Blair didn’t love books, but the family-owned bookshop held her heart. She never expected her little business on the backside of nowhere to garner a New York City publishing house’s attention. Hunter Chase has lived an “always winter, never Christmas” existence, and spending the holidays in Christmas Town U.S.A. wasn’t exactly on his Christmas wish list, but he had no choice when his boss gave him an ultimatum. Can small town and big city discover a Christmas future that will last far beyond the page?

An Unscripted Christmas by Teresa Tysinger
Ellie and Oliver Larson face a Christmas full of uncertainty rather than festive cheer. Ellie is tired of playing a supporting role to Oliver’s passion of running the Kedgewick Creek Playhouse. Oliver can’t imagine his life without her. When things go off script, will their love story find its second act?

Dreams in Toyland by Janine Rosche
Toy shop owner Peyton Hammond knows a secret that could take down online giant Kiljoy Toyz and its owner, Joey Kiljoy. After the two adversaries spend Christmas Eve delivering gifts for charity, will the sun rise on newfound love, or will prejudice and lost dreams keep hope in the dark?
