Christmas on Nutcracker Court: The Mulberry Park Series, Book 4
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: September 2011
Duration: 9 hours 47 minutes
This Christmas, come home to Fairbrook, the setting for Judy Duarte's uplifting, heartwarming novels, where friendship, faith, and some extra-special providence will make it a holiday to remember.
Fairbrook is a town tailor-made for Christmas, with beautiful old houses dotting quaintly named streets like Sugar Plum Lane and Nutcracker Court. But not everyone is eager for the holidays to arrive. Cash-strapped single mom Carly Westbrook worries about providing a merry Christmas for her boys. It doesn't help that they've been having run-ins with neighbor Max Tolliver, an aspiring novelist stricken with writer's block. Then there's Grant Barrows, a formerly wealthy businessman whose heart seems to have shrunk along with his bank balance.
Some folks are still determined to make the season sparkle—like the Diamond Lils, a ladies' group that meets weekly to play poker and socialize. This year, they're looking to do some good deeds—and wealthy widow Lynette thinks that a little matchmaking between Grant and Carly would be a perfect place to start.
Yet Christmas is a season for surprises. And sometimes, the gifts we never expected turn out to be the most precious of all.
"A solid Christmas read, firmly in the spirit of the holiday without being overly saccharine."—Publishers Weekly
