Publisher's Description

Two years ago this Christmas, Sadie Bennett's beloved husband was killed in a tragic accident at the local sawmill. What was once her favorite time of year now haunts her, with its cheerful trappings a cruel reminder of the love she lost. The young widow would like nothing more than to hibernate until the festivities are over. When she finds herself assigned to the committee tasked with picking a Christmas tree for the town square of Little Hickman Creek, she begrudgingly agrees but determines to fulfill her duties to the bare minimum. As the search for a suitable tree gets under way, Sadie is dismayed to learn that one of her fellow committee members is a man she's worked hard to avoid. Reed Harris owns the local livery, and while he's friendly enough, good-looking, too, Sadie isn't ready to invest in another relationship. In fact, she may never be ready, unless a Christmas miracle manages to thaw her frozen heart.

Author Bio

Born and raised in west Michigan, Sharlene attended Spring Arbor University. Upon graduating with an education degree in 1971, she taught second grade for two years, then accepted an invitation to travel internationally for a year with a singing ensemble. In 1975, she married her childhood sweetheart. Together they raised two lovely, wonderful daughters, both of whom are now happily married and enjoying their own families. Retired in 2003 after thirty-one years of teaching, "Shar" loves to read, sing, travel, and spend time with her family-her grandchildren, in particular! Shar launched her writing career in 2006 with the contemporary romance Through Every Storm, a Whitaker House release that was named a finalist for Book of the Year by the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). Following that was her acclaimed Little Hickman Creek series, consisting of Loving Liza Jane (Road to Romance Reviewer's Choice Award); Sarah, My Beloved (third place, Inspirational Readers' Choice Award 2008); and Courting Emma (third place, Inspirational Reader's Choice Award 2009). Shar's next series, the popular Daughters of Jacob Kane, comprises Hannah Grace (second place, Inspirational Reader's Choice Award 2010), Maggie Rose, and Abbie Ann (third place, Inspirational Reader's Choice Award 2011). Sofia's Secret concludes her latest series, River of Hope, which also comprises Livvie's Song and Ellie's Haven.

    This review was written for Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek.
    Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek by Sharlene MacLaren is one of the best written and sweetest novellas that I have had the privilege of reading. The book may be only 133 pages, but the characters and storyline are well developed. This novella is perfect to read not only during the Christmas season but any time of the year that you want a quick, sweet, love story read. Loved it! Sadie Bennett is a young widow of two years whose husband was killed shortly after they married in a work related accident during the Christmas season. With Christmas drawing near, her thoughts turn toward her husband and their love for each other. Although she works as a waitress, she finds little happiness in being with others besides her family. The people in her church in this small community in Kentucky love Sadie and are determined to help her live in joy again. Also, the handsome Reed Harris, who owns the local livery, is quickly falling in love with her. Does Sadie have to completely forget her husband to find love and live in joy again? What does God want for her life? This story was a little personal for me. My husband was a widower for almost two years when we met, fell in love, and married. We dont have to forget the happiness of the past to have love and joy in the future! I received a copy from the author and publisher of The Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek.
    This is the first book I have read by Sharlene MacLaren but will not be my last. She is a very talented writer. This novella was an inspiring and heartwarming Christmas story.

    The setting is December 1898 in Little Hickman Kentucky.

    What is usually a merry and happy time for most people Christmas was only a sad reminder for Sadie Bennett who lost her husband two years ago. She wants nothing to do with celebrating Christmas, but finds that she has been assigned to a committee to search for the town Christmas tree.

    Reed Harris a newcomer to the town of Hickman is also on the committee. Reed is looking for a future wife and settle down. Sadie is still mourning the loss of her husband and a relationship is not in her future. Will Sadie be able to find joy and faith again. To open her heart for another relationship and once again love Christmas.

    A very touching and wonderful Christmas story.

    I read this novella in one sitting and highly recommend it.

    I received a copy of this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    This review was written for Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek.
    I found this book endearing and wonderful. I feel for Sadie in that she doesn't want to be part of the living world without her husband, and how horrible for her to have lost him so early in their marriage. This book is well written - you can feel the characters' frustration with their situations, their heartache.

    The one thing that I truly appreciate about this book is a reminder that God should always come first. He is our Father and he provides for us always. We always need to remember to lean on him. We need to remember that our Father is everything and everything else should come second to him so that brownie or that cigarette isn't going to give us what He can and does give us.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek.
    Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek is a tender seasonal novella that brings readers back to 1890s Little Hickman, Kentucky where they will revisit old friends and meet new ones. Sharlene MacLaren, author of Little Hickman Creek Series, introduces Sadie, barely married and suddenly a widow and Reed, the new owner of the town's livery. Readers will enjoy this charming story of a community of friends and family during what should be a season of joy and happiness. With the anniversary of the death of Sadie's husband nearing, her grief is still acute and she is fearful of new relationships. Reed is interested, in fact, smitten might be a better word! But can he compete with a dead husband? Faith in God is evident throughout. I loved the way some of the characters hear God speak to them words of encouragement and guidance and were aware of the need for wise counsel from His Word and Godly friends. Engaging characters, delightful tales of family and farm life, and a sweet romance will touch the heart and have readers coming back for more from this author.

    This review was written for Christmas Comes to Little Hickman Creek.
    I had read Sharlene Maclarens Little Hickman Creek series a few years ago, so it was nice to go back and visit again. This was a novella that takes place during the month of December and tells the story of a young widow, Sadie Bennett, who had lost her husband two years prior. She has closed her heart off and has just been living an existence that just gets her by. She more or less was becoming a recluse. However, the handsome livery owner Reed Harris has set his sights on her and with the help of her family and town, he intends to open her heart again. This was a sweet little story about a woman learning to let go of fear and to love again. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
