Christmas Joy by Nancy Naigle is a heartwarming contemporary romance story that helps all of us remember what is truly important in life. Many of us get so caught up in our jobs and busy lives that we forget to take the time to spend time with family and friends. Some of us are also guilty of thinking we can handle everything on our own, when in fact sometimes we can’t and other times when we can, we don’t have to.
Joy is a single woman focusing on her career when she is called down by her aunt Ruby’s best friend after Ruby falls and breaks her ankle. During the time that Joy is visiting and helping her aunt out while she is in rehab, she meets Ben and Molly. These are two people that change her life.
Naigle does a very good job at writing stories involving some sort of tragedy that the main character has to overcome or learn how to live with in some manner. In this story, Joy had some unresolved feelings about Christmas and Crystal Falls based on losing her mother years earlier. I enjoyed the way those around her helped her see things differently and to finally live the life she wanted.
If you are looking for a Christmas story filled with love, family, friends and one that just makes you all warm and fuzzy when it’s over, give Christmas Joy a read.
