Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon in the company of Colin Young and Serena Monroe, characters in JoAnn Durgin’s latest novella, Starlight in Her Eyes. JoAnn has written the fourth Christmas novella in the series based in Starlight, Iowa. Each book in the series–Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, Starlight, Star Bright, Sleigh Ride Together with You, and Starlight in Her Eyes–can be read as a stand-alone book, but you’ll miss out on experiencing life in Starlight, and meeting many of the people who live there. So I encourage you to get a copy of the first three books, and read those. The books are short and easy to read. Not required – no extra credit – and no payment for reading them – just suggesting you will enjoy the fourth book even more if you’ve read the first three!
In Starlight in Her Eyes, Colin has moved to Philadelphia to co-host Wake Up Philadelphia!, the show on which Serena serves as assistant. Sparks fly almost immediately and as their story progresses, you will realize that the meeting of Colin and Serena was meant to be. Add Serena’s adorable daughter, Lily, to the mix and you have a family made in heaven. No family is perfect in fiction or in real life, but Colin and Serena remind us through their story Who to turn to when things aren’t going so great.
As with all of JoAnn’s books, Starlight in Her Eyes, will leave you feeling good! So, it’s time to take a break from all of the “hustle and bustle” of shopping, baking, wrapping gifts and singing carols. Make yourself a cup of tea or hot cocoa, snuggle up with your favorite afghan, and settle in for an afternoon to read the delightful Christian Christmas romance Starlight in Her Eyes. You’ll be glad you did!
