Contemporary Christian Romance/Religious Short Stores/Asian American Literature/Holiday-Christmas



Miracles don’t always come easy. Sometimes it takes a secret wish to light an angel’s way.

When Holly steps into a homeless shelter looking for an MIA piano student, she notices a distinct lack of Christmas cheer—because a handsome building inspector is forcing the shelter to temporarily close down.

Holly knows bad guys—she was married to one. Yet when the man asks her out, she finds absolutely not warring with absolutely yes.

Tim Stewart doesn’t hold his breath waiting for God to answer prayers. He went from homeless desperation to television stardom to relative obscurity while God stayed silent. But when Holly barrels into his life, her steady faith sparks hope for a dream of his own. Even if it means praying for a Christmas miracle—one last time.



“Every moment matters”

This is a sweet Christmas romance with a message of faith and hope. It is a feel-good story with a happy ending. The true spirit of the holiday is displayed with acts of generosity, the spirits of giving and goodwill, as well as healing and love.
