About Wrapped Up in Christmas Joy
When Sophie Davis sorts through a box of donated books to her church, she’s surprised to find a soldier’s journal. As the daughter of a veteran who watched her father struggle over the years, she feels a deep connection to the man who wrote the emotional entries.
Former Marine Cole Aaron battled to find peace after returning to civilian life. He’s always needed to protect others. Now, fighting fires helps him put out the demons within him. He’s embracing his life in Pine Hill, KY, and strives to call a truce with his past. When Sophie shows at the fire hall with his journal from when he’d first returned stateside, Cole can’t believe it was in the box he’d donated. The book is old news and he tells her to trash it.
Sophie and Cole are drawn together as they both volunteer for their community, but it’s hard for Cole to let down his guard, and he doesn’t need anyone’s pity. After all, he’s been through in the past, can he find faith in a more hopeful future…one touched by joy?
Wrapped Up in Christmas Joy is a story about Sophie and Cole who meet unexpectedly over an old box of books. They are both active in volunteering in Pine Hill, Kentucky, and soon find themselves falling in love when neither of them was expecting it.
Sophie feels drawn to Cole but he has a hard time trusting and letting his guard down after what he’s been through in the military. But, as time goes on, they both start to become more than friends.
If you want an uplifting small-town romance, Wrapped up in Christmas Joy is an amazing read. And, the fact that it’s a military romance makes this book even more special.
I really love that I can relate to all of the characters in the book. It felt like I was actually in the story when I was reading it and it was so hard to put down when I started it.
And, it was a nice surprise that included in this book is a recipe for Dilly Dutchess Potatoes. It sounds absolutely delicious and would be a wonderful side dish for the holidays this year. Check out the recipe.
