An Unexpected Love For Christmas
In “An Unexpected Love for Christmas,” (sequel to the best-selling novelette, “A Leap of Faith”) Allison is beautiful, spoiled, judgmental, and doesn’t mind making it known that the only way to live, is by her own terms. Although she desires a relationship, any man wanting a second glance from Allison better look even better on paper than he does in person – which automatically eliminates handsome, hard-working Ronald McMurray from her potential list of suitors.
Ronald McMurray’s janitorial business receives a huge contract over the Christmas holidays, which happens to be where Allison’s financial firm is located.

A long-term relationship with Ronald is out of the question for Allison, until an unexpected encounter changes her life forever. Will Allison allow God to direct her path, or will she get in her own way before true love finds her?

The tests that come with these challenges can be ugly, dark, and heartbreaking. These growing pains make it difficult to recognize the beauty surrounding and hidden within the imperfections. It’s even harder while we’re in the darkness, to have a positive mindset and trust we are being guided towards our light.
