Do you believe in Angels of any kind? How about those people that step into your life and the first thing you may think to yourself is wow, an angel just for me. That’s what this book reminds me of. Of course the season of the holidays may help this along but each story is one where there is joy in the holiday along with blessings surrounding the characters, even if they need to be reminded of it.

Marie Bostwick has once again shared Ex-Rockette Kendra Loomis with us, but now she is happily married to minister Andy and expecting her first child. She has a stepdaughter Thea, whose mother is back and wants to have a life with her. In The Presents of Angels Kendra will be wondering if her Christmas would be better at Rockefeller Center than in Maple Grove, Vermont. Whose presence will help Kendra realize she is right where she needs to be? How will Andy and Thea help in making her realize this?

In Decorations, Janna McMahan has Michelle Duncan rebuilding her life after her husband Randy dumps her. Her mother has a Christmas Craft Store and Michelle is helping her out. That is until Michelle meets sculptor neighbor Baxter Brow. The connection between these two has to be the workings of an Angel - or is it? Will Baxter be the one person who can make all her wishes come true?

In Miracle on Main Street , Rosalind Noonan really has policeman Joe Cody wondering what happened and if a day did repeat itself. He and his wife Sheila are having financial problems, and with the holidays here it is not much easier. There will be little gifts which make Joe think he is a failure to his family. What happens on Main Street to change Joe’s mind?

Fern Michaels has the main title of the book, Snow Angles as her story. When Olympic skier Max Jorgenson helps social worker Grace Landry during a snowstorm, he has no idea what is in store for him. Not only does she have two small, frightened children with her who are not her own, but he is fighting his own ghost and is not ready to share the information. What will become of these four? How may they help each other?

This is a wonderful book and I enjoyed each story. The holiday theme is an added bonus. Be sure to get your copy for I think that they will leave the shelves quickly.
