Marilyn Pappano has written a charming holiday romance, Season for Miracles, about Emilie Dalton who has just rescued her sister’s children from placement in foster care as Christmas approaches. Her sister is in sad shape because of drug problems and Emilie hits the road with the kids before they are taken away. She ends up in “Bethlehem”, perfect name for the hometown willing to take them in. She lands in the lovely Victorian home of one the town’s recently deceased residents and assumes the role of the woman’s niece, since the town folk have already jumped to that conclusion. The movie (made for television with the same title as the book) has several mysterious visits by a helpful stranger (Patty Duke).
It’s been awhile since I read the book, but just watched the television show again. I definitely think you need to give the book a read even if you have seen or are going to see the movie. I like holiday romances, this one complete with hunky, cute, caring police officer Nathan Bishop. Of course things eventually turn out well for the makeshift family, just in time to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.
So if you want to enjoy the holiday with a little romance turn to Ms Pappano for a good read.
Marilyn Pappano now lives in her home state of Oklahoma and she has a great selection of titles in her repertoire. Check out this one or any other of her titles and you’ll be in for a treat. Visit her blog, with her other Twisted Sisters.
