Publisher's Summary

There's nothing a Christmas kiss won't cure. Except perhaps a shattered heart....  

When Emmanuelle Sumter steps off the train in Cherish, South Carolina - a town simply glowing with the promise of Christmas - she finds herself praying God will help her find the broken pieces of her life. Shattered, like her beloved harp, her dreams, and her trust in men.  

Her friend Dorothy told her Cherish is a safe haven. But she never expected Dorothy's brother, Deputy Nicholas Thompson, would relight the one thing she thought she'd lost forever: a spark of hope.  

Not long ago, while Nicholas' sister was in rehab, Emmanuelle's voice and smile on his Skype screen held him together. After that, she seemed to disappear, an absence he felt keenly when his ex-fiancée left his faith in God dented but not broken.  

Now she's in Cherish, even more stunning in person. Yet she's holding tight to a private pain she refuses to reveal. Nicholas resolves to be patient, vowing he'll never let anyone hurt her again. Even when her past rears its ugly head to destroy what's left of her heart.  

Note: Contains references to verbal and physical abuse.  

From USA Today best-selling author Josie Riviera comes a new contemporary Christian romance series set in the small town of Cherish, South Carolina. These sweet and wholesome stories, where God is at the center, brim with love and laughter.  

Are his arms a safe haven sent from God...or a Christmas promise waiting to be broken?

Nicholas & Emmanuelle

Nicholas and Emmanuelle have their own relationship issues, and this is their story. I do not know why Emmanuelle is scared of police officers. Her name rhyming with the dog's name is off putting. The narrator delivers Emmanuelle's lines in the same tone, no matter the intentioned emotion.

    5 out of 5 stars

Abuse Whether Verbal or Physical Can Be Devastating!

A woman, Emmanuelle had been in an abusive relationship!
A man, Nicholas was nursing a broken heart when the woman
He was to marry broke it off! His sister, Dorothy had been in
Rehab a while ago. She was also Emmanuelle's friend!

Nicholas often spoke to Emmanuelle on Skype, this held them
both together. Dorothy told Emmanuelle that Cherish was safe.
That is where when she left New York she went.

The more time they Nicholas and Emmanuelle spent together
the closer they got. I encourage you to get this Absolutely
Amazing Audiobook and listen to the story yourself. I'm sure
that you will find it just as awesome!

The narrator, Anthea Hollett - Ybarra did a wonderful job with the characters..
I just wish that authors could use a man's voice for men, and a woman's
voice for women. That would be more realistic!

Beautifully written and narrated

This story is well written and sweet. The narrator's voice truly fit the story she was reading and made the story come to life. The characters have their issues but are truly in search of God's plan for them. This book is everything a Christian romance should be! Well done!
