The Miracle on Mistletoe Lane by Derrick Knight
reviewed by: Becky
Joe Koehler and his six-year old son, Joey, are down on their luck. Currently, Joe is unemployed due to a bad economy and taking care of a medically complex son. Recently father and son became homeless due to their apartment catching on fire and Joe being without any insurance. They are forced to live in Joe's old red pick-up truck. Eventually father and son take refuge at Hope House, a local homeless shelter, which is run by a kindly, yet mysterious, elderly woman named Emily.
Sidney Maier recently inherited his grandparents home but the house is in desperate need of repair. Skills Sidney greatly lacks. He befriends a fellow church member Emily who is the Interim Director at Hope House. Sidney tells Emily that he needs help with remodeling his new home. Also, he confides in her, that he is lonely and wishes he could meet someone special.
Emily and her assistants orchestrate for Joe and Sidney to meet where an instant attraction forms between both men. Joe and Sidney embark on a journey of courtship, but soon a negative force learns of their budding romance and wants to stop it at any cost. Emily and her assistants must all use their special talents if Joe and Sidney are meant to live happily ever after.
I love this time of year, mainly because we get to read lovely, sweet little Christmas stories like this one! Everyone needs a little magic in their lives, and also a lot of love, and Derrick Knight gives us both with this gem! You gotta love Joe, a very sweet down on his luck guy that loves his son, and Sidney a lonely man who wants a family. These two will need some help with happy ever after, due to a so- called friend ( you will want to slap him I swear!), but Emily and her gang or on it! Never underestimate the power of love and the magic of a determined Emily! Thanks Derrick, for this little bit of Christmas Magic!
