Finding twin five-year-old boys on his doorstep isn’t the first surprise Reverend Benjamin Lahaye has faced lately. Emery Wilkes, the new schoolteacher the town has hired, turns out to be a very pretty woman—not the man they’d been expecting. And though the twins and Emmy are only boarding with Ben until Christmas, the arrangement feels all too natural.
Emmy has moved to Minnesota to put loss behind her. Marriage would mean forsaking her position and her purpose, and Ben is an honorable man who understands her refusal to wed. But as he gets closer to tracking down the little boys’ father, Emmy realizes just how much she wants their sweet temporary family to become permanent.

Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5Finally Ben get's his story!December 7, 2017MelissaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Yes! Ben finally get's his story!! Readers of the first two books in the Little Falls Legacy series remember Rev. Ben LaHaye as the pastor who never quite wins the heroine's heart - until now. This story is one of the sweetest stories Gabrielle has written. In addition to falling in love with the new school teacher, Emmy, Ben has twin boys abandoned on his doorstep. Ben must make decisions about their future as he deals with the lasting effects of his own abandonment as a child. I really enjoyed how their storylines wove together. A great read!
JoyGirlAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fun Christmas Story!December 7, 2017JoyGirlAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A Gift of Twins is another story in Gabrielle Meyer's Little Falls Legacy series. I really enjoyed this Christmas story. It is the story of a teacher that comes to Minnesota. When the town sends for this teacher, they think a man is coming. They wanted a man because every female teacher has gotten married and has then left her teaching position. The town has had to continue to look for teacher after teacher. This teacher convinces the school board to give her a chance because she has no plans to ever get married.
A Gift of Twins is well put together and a great story. Throughout the whole story, you see how different characters have to make difficult decisions. We all face hard decisions in our lives and we can relate to the situations in the story. Ultimately, we see that even when we don't think we can move forward, we should still keep going and persevere. The friends of the main characters encourage each other and strive to help them succeed and follow their hearts. In the end, you will see just what "unexpected holiday blessings" await!
(On a side note, the book accurately portrays what a Minnesota winter truly can look like!)

I would have read this in one day had life not happened. :) I loved that Emery was able to hold her own against what I feel many women have experienced in their lives. Many twist and unexpected events. Sad to see this series end!

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Funny and sweet and heartwarming -- a great addition to any Christmas collection.December 1, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Pastor Ben was a favourite secondary character in Inherited: Unexpected Family so I was thrilled to discover that he gets a turn to play hero in his own story. And yes, this can be read as a standalone just fine. It's the third book in the Little Falls Legacy series and I somehow missed the first one but you can be sure I'll be backtracking to catch up. I believe that Ben played a prime secondary role in that first book as well so followers of this series will be super excited about this one.
It can be tricky to create a heart-throb pastor hero -- at least I think so -- but Meyer does an amazing job of meshing toe-curling scenes with inspirational ones. And I truly adore Ben. He's honest, open, compassionate -- all the good qualities a pastor should have. But he has flaws too -- like being wary of love after repeated discouragements in the past. He figures God wants him to remain single in order to focus on his calling. Of course, he hasn't really confirmed that with the Lord and human assumptions can be a dangerous thing. Especially when it has him second guessing his attraction to the new teacher.
Emmy carries her own heartache and a pact to remain single as she dedicates herself to the children of Little Falls. Gotta love two stubborn people heading in the wrong direction. There are so many delectable moments of heated awareness -- this reader could hear the crackles in the air. But Ben and Emmy are cagey and I was quick to despair until orphan twins land on the pastor's doorstep. Chaos and mayhem ensue as these two reluctant lovebirds are thrown together in a united cause...which soon morphs into creating a memorable Christmas for these precious little boys.
Funny and sweet and heartwarming -- a great addition to any Christmas collection.
