Not Until Christmas Morning by Valerie M. Bodden
"This was a fabulous, fantastic, best ever Christmas book. WOW!" -Advance reader
She's a fixer... He's about as broken as they come... Can they learn to turn to God for healing and hope this Christmas?
Leah has always been a fixer. That's why she decided to foster a troubled teen. And it's why she's determined to give him the perfect Christmas. It might also be why she feels compelled to reach out to her grinchy, reclusive neighbor Austin. But she'll have to be careful that reaching out doesn't turn into something more—she's been hurt by crossing the line from friendship to romance once, and she's not willing to let it happen again.
After losing his leg, his friend, and his faith in Afghanistan, Austin figures he's about as broken as they come. Hope Springs is simply a stopping point—a place to rehabilitate his leg, get over the burden of his PTSD, and get back into shape to redeploy. He has no desire to get to know anyone while he's here, least of all the meddlesome—if sweet—woman next door. But when she calls on him to help her make Christmas special for her foster son, something compels him to relent. Soon, his heart belongs to both of them.
But what if Austin is too broken for even Leah to fix? Can the two of them learn to turn to God for hope and healing—and maybe even a chance at love—this Christmas?
Not Until Christmas Morning is a heartwarming Christian romance filled with faith, love, and the reminder to trust God "even if."
"Not Until Christmas Morning is such an inspiring and uplifting book that you won't want to wait until Christmas to read it! I loved this story of how God can make something beautiful out of broken people and their painful circumstances." -Advance reader
