Finding Father Christmas, Engaging Father Christmas, and Kissing Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn

I loved all three of these Christmas novels that I read before and over Christmas this year.  In Finding Father Christmas, Miranda Carson takes a trip to England with scant details and a picture to look for her father.  The only picture she has is Father Christmas with a squalling child on his lap and the name of the photo studio where this picture was taken.  What does this picture mean?  Miranda arrives in the small village of Carlton Heath and is immediately swept into the Christmas celebrations including the annual production of A Christmas Carol.  Will Miranda be able to find her family for Christmas?

In Engaging Father Christmas, Miranda Carson returns to Carlton Heath to spend Christmas with her new boyfriend, Ian.  Miranda hopes that an engagement will appear for Christmas and also dreams about one day owning a cottage in the village.  Things start to unravel when her old boyfriend shows up out of the blue, and when gossip about her true identity and family start to get out.  Will Miranda be able to have a happy Christmas after all?

In Kissing Father Christmas, Ian’s cousin, Anna, has arrived in Carlton Heath to spend Christmas and to hopefully get to know Peter, someone she met at a wedding, more closely.  Unfortunately her trip does not start out well when Peter tells that he thinks she may have the wrong idea about his feelings for her from their kiss at the wedding.  Will Anna be able to find true love and adventure in Carlton Heath?

I loved all three of these stories.  They are good clean stories with mystery, romance, and great English Christmas spirit.  I would love to read more books in this series or more by this author.
