A Christmas to Remember by Beverly Jenkins
NAACP nominee and USA Today bestselling author Beverly Jenkins returns to her beloved Blessings series with a Christmas wedding in the town of Henry Adams, Kansas.
Ever since Bernadine Brown bought the town of Henry Adams, her relationship with diner owner Malachi “Mal” July has had its share of ups and downs. But now they’re finally ready to say “I do.”
Or are they? As wedding preparations go into full swing, and families both local and extended begin to gather for the festivities, that long-awaited walk down the aisle hits a speed bump that may derail everything.
But Mal and Bernadine’s relationship isn’t the only one being tested.
Preston Mays aka Brain, loves his girlfriend as much as he does physics but when she decides being a couple is no longer a good thing, his heart is broken. Will connecting with his bio dad’s family ease his pain?
Reverend Paula Grant has been patiently waiting for God to send her someone to share her life. When the town’s charming new chef arrives in town, she wonders if he could be the one.
And then there’s former mayor Riley Curry who throws a parade with his hog Cletus! There’s always a lot going on in Henry Adams, and this will be a Christmas to remember.
“The books are a testament to the power of community and how love—whether romantic or between family members or friends—can heal all wounds. Strong, capable women are the core of the story, learning to love and speak up for themselves.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Readers looking for uplifting, old-fashioned, small-town holiday celebrations should start planning out their route to Henry Adams, KS… The blend of Fannie Flagg charm and the kindness of Jan Karon’s Mitford novels will draw new fans to Jenkins’s series.” — Library Journal
