Title: A Cedar Cove Christmas
Author: Debbie Macomber
Source: Amazon as part of Falling for Christmas
Mother-to-be Mary Jo Wyse arrives in Cedar Cove on Christmas Eve, searching for her baby’s father. David Rhodes had said he’d be in town. But he isn’t. Which leaves Mary Jo stranded, pregnant and alone. And there’s no room at the local inn.…
So Grace Harding brings Mary Jo home to her nearby ranch. She and her husband, Cliff, have a houseful of guests, but they offer her a room over their stable (currently sheltering the animals – including a donkey and a camel – for Cedar Cove’s Nativity pageant!).
When Mary Jo goes into labor that night, a young man named Mack McAfee, a paramedic, comes to her rescue, just as her brothers – the three Wyse men – show up in town. The people of Cedar Cove join them in celebrating the birth of baby Noel. But no one has more to celebrate than Mack. Because this Christmas brings him faith, hope and love…
A Cedar Cove Christmas is a lovely retelling of the Nativity Story. Mary Jo Wyse travels to Cedar Cove in search of her unborn child’s father. She doesn’t find the father, but events bring her in touch with quite a few of the characters we meet in Macomber’s Cedar Cove books. The book holds plenty of surprises, good humour and isn’t too artificial in it’s relationship to the Nativity. A light, humorous read with a huge dollop of the feel good factor.
