New Release … from JoAnn Durgin, the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Starlight Christmas Series and the Lewis Legacy Series, wrap yourself in the warmth of love and family in small-town America in this first novel of her new Millcreek Christmas Series.
Lisbeth Lawrence never expected to be catapulted into a snowbank on a bitterly cold December night. Dazed and sprawled in the snow, she looks into the soulful eyes of the boy who’d stolen her heart ten years ago—he just didn’t know it. Rugged and more handsome than ever, he’s now a mystery man who travels the globe and turns up in town from time to time. The only person who knows the truth is one of Lisbeth’s physical therapy patients—and she’s not talking.
Miles Langston is close to personal and professional burnout when he’s given a unique assignment: go home to Millcreek, Connecticut, and regroup, recharge, and reconnect. What he didn’t plan on was accidentally sending a former classmate flying into a snowbank his first night back. “Lis” Lawrence, the quiet “good” girl with the prettiest eyes in school, has grown into a beauty who challenges his heart and mind from the get-go.
Brought together through their mutual love and care for his beloved grandmother, Miles and Lisbeth begin to experience miracles unfolding through the quiet good deeds of the “Millcreek Christmas Elf”…and in their own hearts. Can a man who rarely stays in one place for long find love and contentment with a woman firmly entrenched in little Millcreek?
Whether it’s a cold winter day or a hot summer night, whenever you pick up a faith-filled Christian romance from JoAnn Durgin, you can rest assured it’s the perfect choice to warm your heart and uplift your soul.
It’s hard to find time to just relax and slip out of the busyness of life sometimes. If you have that problem, slip to Millcreek with me and meet Lisbeth and Miles. JoAnn has created another masterpiece in this story. A masterpiece of God’s love, grace and the picturesque views only He can spill upon the earth. Millcreek is a beautifully described small town with charming, caring characters that you immediately fall in love with.
It is always a pleasure to sit down and read a book by JoAnn Durgin and “Love on Assignment” was no exception. As in all of her books, there is beautiful scenery, characters who the reader can relate to, romance to capture the heart and the message of Christian (and Christmas) love. One intriguing aspect that I thoroughly enjoyed was the mystery of the Christmas Elf. Although Christmas has passed, you will enjoy reading this book anytime during the year!
