The people of Christmas Valley always celebrate Christmas to the fullest extent. The mayor plays Santa, every business is holiday themed, and there's a nativity for the kids each Christmas Eve. This town knows Christmas.
But this year nothing goes according to plan. Shepherd's Inn is full of strangers, Mad Myrtle is causing problems, and a young couple with a baby due any minute rolls in to the middle of town in their Partridge Family-style bus. It's hardly the holiday Christmas Valley wanted--but it may be just what they need. This charming novella is sure to become a new Christmas tradition for readers who love a great holiday story.

I gave this book 5 stars—though my daughter says she uses coffee cups. I said “pffft” and stand by my 5 star rating.
If you like Christmas, you must visit Christmas Valley and stay at the Shepherd’s Inn. The owners, Pastor Charlie and his wife will make you welcome.
Because their grown children can’t make it home for the holidays, they decide to rent the rooms out for the week before Christmas.
Prayerfully, they asked for the guests that the Lord would want them to share Christmas with. That turns out to be a cantankerous old lady, a couple argued about everything, a divorced lady and her daughter and then a couple with no children. Last, a young man and his very pregnant wife arrived in an big, broken down bus that looked like a ridiculously oversized Christmas ornament.
Things got a little crazy at Christmas Valley. I loved this book but you’ll just have to read it to find how things turned out!
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
