Lucy Collins has given up on Christmas since the painful break-up with her fiance. Things only get worse when a large newspaper is about to come to town and threatens the livelihood of their family run business, The Turtle Creek Newspaper. At the staff Christmas party, she makes a wish and what seems like the answer to her prayer walks in the front door to apply for the editor position, which they are hoping will bring new life to the paper. Not only is Joe McNamara a genius when it comes to the written word, but he is also gifted with ideas about keeping the newspaper afloat. However, Joe has a secret of his own that he is keeping from Lucy. If she finds it out, then what looks like a promising relationship will unravel, but it's Christmas time, the season of rebirth and miracles. Will the spirit of celebration be enough to heal two hearts? Or will the reality of deception make this the worst Christmas of all?

Hi Robin,

I thought you would like a copy of this review from Night Owl Romance -

Dianna From Night Owl Romance: A Review of The Christmas Edition by Robin Shope

Lucy works at her families business, The Turtle Creek Newspaper. Unfortunately, like most small businesses of today it is not doing so well. So Lucy decided they needed a new editor to try and bring things around.

Joe has a degree in journalism and he seems like the answer to a prayer. He writes from the heart, just like Lucy knows they need. He is from the big city, Chicago to be precise. It looks like things are looking up for the newspaper, but things are not always what they seem. Is Joe really a dream come true or will he end up being her worse nightmare?

The Christmas Edition was a lovely read. I kept trying to figure just what it was that Joe was hiding. Just as I thought I had figured it out something else happened. It will keep you wondering from start to finish if there really can be a happy ending.
