Angels for Christmas
Angel on the Doorstep
by Sandra Petit
An Angel for Everyone by Gail Sattler
Strawberry Christmas
by Pamela Griffin
Angel Charm by Tamela Hancock Murray

Crafty little angels put their charm into four holiday romances

In Angel on the Doorstep...Moira Sullivan has been secretly crocheting angels and then delivering them anonymously to hard-working staff members of her church. Secretly, that is, until Joe Corrigan finds out and threatens to blow her cover. The only way she can keep him quiet is to grudgingly accept his help and hope that their good deeds remain anonymous. Will the time they are forced to spend together forge a serious relationship between them or create a distance that will never be bridged?

In An Angel for Everyone... Kim Warner has tried to get boy-next-door Trent Johnsonís attention for years, but heís never taken her seriously. When Kim has only one week to make a few hundred beaded angel ornaments as favors for everyone attending the annual church Christmas party, Trent offers to help. The only problem is, he ends up making a difficult situation even worse. At the end of the party, will their two hearts be stripped as bare as the Christmas tree?

In Strawberry Christmas... Noelle Sanders is mortified when she accidentally dyes her hair strawberry pink. It doesn't help when Todd Brentley shows up on her doorstep. But when that same dye job is the catalyst for a unique handcrafted angel that connects them with a homeless family, it may be all worth it.

In Angel Charm... Lydia Waters has never forgiven Drake Kingston for breaking her heart. When Drake, now a widower, returns to town with his rebellious daughter, all the feelings Lydia once had for him rise to the surface. Can one special angel change the hearts and strengthen the lives of two people?

In the presence of angels, will these hearts accept God's message of love and open to each other?

CBA Bestseller! 4 1/2 stars in Romantic Times magazine in June 2004!

The Bouquet was #1 on the June 2004 list. That list is no longer up, so you'll have to take my word for it. :-) You can look at the current bestseller list here: CBA Bestseller list but they no longer have a category specifically for romance that I could find.

The Bouquet also appeared on the July 2004 list at #4, after Dee Henderson's books!

Romantic Times gave The Bouquet 4 1/2 stars in their May 2004 issue. In Jill Elizabeth Nelson's review she said: "The bride throws the bouquet, but it lands in the ceiling fan and breaks into pieces, tagging four reluctant candidates for the altar. The premise of this collection is as delightful as its well-crafted love stories."


The Bouquet
Rose in Bloom
by Sandra "Sandie" Petit
Flowers by Felicity by Janet Lee Barton
Petals of Promise by Diann Hunt

Flowers for a Friend by Gail Sattler

Pieces of a broken wedding bouquet ignite four romances

Catching a wedding bouquet is a classic invitation for love. What happens when a bridal bouquet meets a ceiling fan? It becomes four separate pieces and lands in some very surprising places.  Will the pieces of the bouquet send blessings or disaster to those it touches?

Rose in Bloom... Owning and operating Rosie's Catering is a 24-7 job for Rose Bentley. She loves her career, but catering her friend's wedding makes her yearn to have a "special someone" of her own. When Lucas Montgomery falls into the prize wedding cake she created, at the same time dislocating Rose's shoulder, she is certain he is NOT Mr. Right. But does God have other plans?

Flowers by Felicity... Florist Felicity Carmichael is hoping for a little publicity from the flower arrangements she has made for her next door neighbor's wedding. What she doesn't want is the kind of publicity she receives in the Sunday paper...a picture of her bouquet flying apart. Nor does she want the attentions of the photographer who took it...no matter how attracted to him she is. As David tries to convince Felicity that catching a fourth of a bride's bouquet is just as good as catching the whole thing, she wonders Ė is what she thought was God's plan for her life all wrong?

Petals of Promise...
When life deals Konni Strong a heavy blow with the death of her husband, she has no intention of getting married again. But five years later, handsome Rick Hamilton enters her life and sneaks into her heart. Can she learn to let go of the past and trust God with her future?

Flowers for a Friend...
Geoff Manfrey is surprised when part of the wedding bouquet lands on his head. When he gives it to the flower girl, he earns the ire of her guardian, her sister, Clarissa, who is afraid the infatuated young Jenni will be hurt. Things go from bad to worse when Clarissa falls in love with Geoff, too.

Can God use fragmented flowers to plant seed of love in fallow hearts?
Can He created a bouquet of love from the chaos in these four lives?

Review of this book here http://thebestreviews.com/review27911
About Rose in Bloom, Shelby Bagby says: Another favorite from the group for me was Sandra Petit's ROSE IN BLOOM. The look on Rosey's face might have been priceless when part of the bouquet got to her but the look on the guests faces was even more priceless when she hauled off to throw the bouquet back causing a commotion with another guest which ended up destroying the beautiful cake she had spent hours preparing. Not only does the groomsman Lucas try to cushion her fall, he offers to help her bake another cake for another upcoming wedding as her dislocated shoulder will make it hard to do the job alone. Before long things are heating up in the kitchen for both of them.
