The Town Around The Christmas Tree: Jacob’s Message is book five of the Twisted Family Holiday series. It brings the series full circle with the heroine, Hailey Jade, and her cousin, Isaiah, having another Christmas adventure. This story takes the two out of their grandfather’s home, on a walk, and finding mayhem that needs to be addressed, before they can enjoy their Christmas Eve celebration.
While they wait to replicate the town beneath the Christmas tree they encounter an unnatural phenomenon, and then witness Harper having a grown-up conversation, but no one is present. They get spooked and think they’re in for another Christmas disaster. Enter Jacob who is the son of their grandfather’s girlfriend. And he has become Hailey’s BFF. Jacob arrived for the Christmas celebration, but without his mother, which seems weird but they carry on about their day while they wait for her to arrive.
After the town is put together exactly the way the six cousins remember, from the last year, Jacob invites Hailey to go for a walk. So the older kids—Hailey, Isaiah, Bubba and Jacob, go on an adventurous-walk that, again, teaches them to remember the magic and meaning of Christmas.
Book five of the Twisted Family Holiday series takes us back to the beginning. The Town Around the Christmas Tree is a new classic Christmas adventure, starring Hailey Jade and her cousin, Isaiah, along with Hailey’s new BFF-Jacob. Their Christmas antics both entertain us, and fill us with the literary, Christmas magic we’ve come to love.
Jimmy's Christmas Present is a tale of love pursued. While completing a senior project for college, Jimmy runs into a mall elf that catches his eye and then his heart, but as luck would have it, each time he runs across the elfin girl, he can't seem to get out a coherent thought. And with Christmas at hand, she has no time to stay and chat. Jimmy is two years removed from his last relationship and is feeling that he might not find love again. But, while at the mall, Jimmy has happenstance meetings with two very attractive (non-elf) young women. The meetings give him hope but seemingly end quickly and without love. Or do they? During his time at the mall, Jimmy meets many interesting characters, including a crafty head-elf who seems to be one step ahead of him, and three helper elves, one of which becomes his guide, preparing Jimmy for a surreal meeting with Santa. Jimmy soon finds himself in a one-to-one talk with Saint Nicholas. During the chat, Santa reveals that Jimmy will meet the woman he is destined to meet, a Christmas present if you will. And so he does... Jimmy’s Christmas Present offers humor, love, and hope. The story, as well, gives the reader a brief look into real-life issues, both at home and in the community, but you won’t even know you there.
Jimmy's Christmas Present is a great read for teens, young and new adults, as well as all adults and any believers in that Christmas magic; and the promises of Santa. Jimmy's Christmas Present is another winner, and classic Christmas tale from JR Wirth.
