This Christmas join the De La Fuentes and McKenzies in Blossom Creek as they celebrate the grand opening of Emelia’s Restaurant. Over twenty years after Levi De La Fuente's parents opened the first Emelia’s, Levi and his cousin Ryan are getting ready to open a second location. Emma De La Fuente manages the first Emelia’s in Essex, Vermont for her parents. She’s in town to assist her brother and cousin in getting the new restaurant ready for its grand opening. However, she didn’t plan on the strong attraction she feels toward the town Sheriff. The man with his sweet words and heated looks has managed to derail her plans on returning home. While his sister is distracted, Levi finds himself in need of rescuing from a rather embarrassing situation. Luckily for him, Vivien Taylor, owner of Temptations, Blossom Creek’s handmade chocolate store, appears just at the right time. If only he didn’t crave the sweet woman, then maybe, this situation wouldn’t be so awkward. Blossom Creek just might be warm enough to melt the snow this holiday season.

Matthew draws his readers into a whirling ribbon of the familiar reds and greens of Christmas, as well as other festive hues, including white, gold, blue, and brown. Christmas is RED. It's a bright shiny sled. It's candy canes, and toy store lanes. It's sprinkles on sweet bread. Christmas is BROWN It’s pinecones scattered round… It’s a cradle soft with hay And a donkey’s gentle bray. It’s God within a baby’s skin on that very first Christmas Day. All the colors come together when readers are reminded that Christmas is YOU—you’re a part of the story, the joy and the glory! Matthew shows us again and again that the holidays are nothing without being with the people we love, celebrating treasured traditions, and making new memories—all in vivid color.

Bei einer Verabredung in einer geheimnisvollen Schule werden sie ein spannendes Abenteuer bestehen. Was werden sie dabei lernen? Welche Entdeckungen werden sie dabei machen? Und welchen ganz besonderen Weihnachtswunsch weckt dies in den Kindern? Ist der Weihnachtsmann wirklich der Weihnachtsmann? Und wo wohnt der Nikolaus? Über diese spannende Erkenntnis staunen nicht nur die Kinder. Auch den Leser wird dies sehr überraschen. Wird auch der Weihnachtswunsch in Erfüllung gehen? Fernab jeder kulturellen Vorstellung zeigt diese Geschichte, wie unbedeutend die Hautfarbe und Lebensweise unterschiedlicher Kulturen für eine Freundschaft sind. Viel interessanter ist, wie gleich die beiden Kinder in ihrem Herzen und menschlichem Wesen sind. Hier stehen nur die miteinander harmonierenden Menschen im Vordergrund. _______________________________________________________ -Two Boys And One Christmas Wish- is about a close friendship between the 5-year-old Jayden belonging to an ex-European family and the 5-year-old Takoda (meaning Friend To Everyone) belonging to the Sioux family.

Is Santa Claus really Santa Claus? And where does Saint Nicolas live? This insight does not amaze kids only. Readers will be surprised about it as well. Will the kids also get their Christmas wish fulfilled? Far away from cultural ideas, this fairy tale shows that skin color and different ways of life are not important for a friendship. It's much more interesting, however, to see how two hearts beat as one. Only the harmonizing people have priority in this fairy tale.
