Synopsis: It just isn’t Christmas without a book by Debbie Macomber! Together for the first time in one value box set, three delightful stories capture the warmth of the season.
When Christmas Comes
Through a website, Charles Brewster and Emily Springer arrange to swap houses over Christmas. Emily, a widow, wants to celebrate in Boston with her only daughter. Charles, history professor and curmudgeon, wants to avoid the holiday altogether. He figures a prison town should be nice and quiet over the holidays—except he’s thinking of the wrong Leavenworth, and ends up in Washington State—in Santa’s village! Through all the mix-ups and misunderstandings, amid the chaos and confusion, romance begins to emerge in unexpected ways. Because everything changes at Christmas!
Call Me Mrs. Miracle
This Christmas, Emily Merkle (just call her Mrs. Miracle) is working in the toy department of Finley’s, the last family-owned department store in New York City. Because of a tragedy years before, for Jake Finley and his father, Christmas means only one thing: profit. They need a holiday miracle to keep the business afloat. Holly Larson needs a miracle, too. She wants to give her eight-year-old nephew, Gabe, the holiday he deserves. Gabe’s father is in the army and won’t be home for Christmas, but at least Holly can get Gabe that toy robot from Finley’s, the one gift he desperately wants. If she can figure out how to pay for it… Fortunately, it’s Mrs. Miracle to the rescue. Next to making children happy, she likes nothing better than helping others—and that includes a bit of matchmaking! This Christmas will be different. For all of them.
Can This Be Christmas?
On a cold and snowy December 24, a crowded train is taking holiday travelers home for Christmas. But because of the storm, this group of strangers ends up spending Christmas Eve stranded in a small New Hampshire station. Despite the cold and discomfort, they create an impromptu celebration that reminds them all what Christmas really means.
