Book Description: Return to two of Colleen Coble’s most beloved settings—Bluebird Ranch and Hope Beach—for holiday romance and mystery!
All Is Calm
It’s going to be an unexpectedly romantic Christmas at Bluebird Ranch.
Brendan Waddell has always considered Bluebird Ranch a little piece of heaven: an idyllic ranch that pairs abused children with abused horses, run by one of his Marine buddies. Now, it seems just the place to spend Christmas recovering from an on-the-job injury.
Lauren Everman first came to the ranch as a foster kid, but now knows it’s the perfect hideout. As the witness to a murder, Lauren needs somewhere to lie low. Her beauty immediately catches Brendan’s attention—but so does her secretive behavior. This Special Ops Intel man knows a woman on the run when he sees one. Can he trust her, or is she putting the ranch at risk? One thing is certain: he’s going to do everything he can to keep her safe so he can see what magic Christmas brings.
All Is Bright
A romantic Christmas wedding at Tidewater Inn gives Delilah’s unique gifts a chance to shine. But will her light be snuffed out before the bride and groom say “I do”?
As manager of the Tidewater Inn, Delilah Carter has been planning a spectacular Christmas wedding for her friend, Elin Summerall. But when Delilah’s car is forced off the road and into the ocean, she finally has to admit that the strange phone calls she’s been receiving lately may be more than just pranks.
Sheriff Tom Bourne has always had a soft spot for Delilah, and he’s determined to protect her. He hopes to win her heart by giving her the surprise gift of a lifetime . . . but first he has to make sure nothing happens to her before Christmas Day.
My Thoughts: The Christmas reads are coming in...yay!
Coleen Coble has two great novellas in one sweet book.
The first novella, All Is Calm, is full of suspense. Ironically, all is not calm at Bluebird Ranch. Lauren Everman comes to the ranch to hide out. She remembers the ranch from her days as a foster child. And Brendan Waddell comes to the ranch to visit friends.

A great short story full of suspense and mystery!
Then All Is Bright is the story about Delilah. Delilah wants her friend to have the dream wedding she always wanted. Sheriff Tom Bourne has admired Delilah and wants to protect her...he also wants to win her heart. He plans a great surprise for her.
Another great suspense short story with wonderful characters that come to life in the pages of a great read!
