A Fresh Start for Christmas

(2 customer reviews)


Memphis Rose Griffin loves teaching at Counting Stars Children’s Home. The girls and staff are like family, and working here ties her to her mother, whose last wish was for Memphis to take her place as teacher. But something’s missing. Now at the age of twenty-eight, her teenage dream of having her own family has all but faded.

Until her pastor and the orphanage founder come with a proposal that will change her life forever. Should she become their first candidate for their new matchmaking venture? Though grim, at least her life at the orphanage is familiar and certain. Can she risk an unknown future with a man she’s never met?

The last thing thirty-three-year-old Mike Montgomery wants is to marry again, especially to someone he’s never met. His family has other plans for him and completes the application without his permission–even changing some of his preferences to make him seem more intriguing. Can two star-crossed candidates dare to dream again?

    I listened to this one on audio. I really like this narrator. I have listened to him before reading other stories and he is great. He brings subtle nuances to his voice and brings the characters and story to life. I don’t think you can go wrong with J. Scott Bennett.

    The story is great. I love the idea of this story. I know you hear of orphans in stories, but she wasn’t really, but she was. I loved the characters in this book. The names are fantastic I must admit. Like this family, I do something every year for Christmas as well. They gave me a few ideas that I will implement. I do look forward to the rest in the series.
