A Family for Faith will be available everywhere in April.
Here's the back cover blurb:
When Faith Hagin sees widower cop Gabe Reynolds every day in her coffee shop, she can’t help but feel for the struggling single dad. She’s raised a teenager of her own—and sadly, knows what not to do. But thanks to his matchmaking preteen daughter, Chelsea, the whole town’s praying for Gabe to find a wife!
Even though Faith thinks she’s content being just friends, spending time with him and Chelsea starts to feel like a fresh start at having a family. And their love may be the answer to everyone’s prayers.
A Forever Christmas is a story you can enjoy even after the holidays. It's a story about a struggling single dad and the woman he used to love.
Read the back cover:
Sarah Radcliffe's quiet Christmas back in her hometown will be lost if she agrees to direct the church's Christmas pageant. But when she meets two little boys determined to gain their father's attention, Sarah agrees to help. Then she discovers that the dad in question is Gregory Jones, the man she loved and lost.
The single dad is working himself to the bone to give his boys the Christmas of their dreams, when all they want is some family time. Time that includes a new mommy. If Sarah can learn to open her heart, she may receive the most wonderful present of all--a family of her own.

A FOREVER CHRISTMAS (4) by Missy Tippens. Home in Magnolia, Ga., from Nashville for the holidays, teacher Sarah Radcliffe is also recovering from the loss of one of her kindergarteners to cancer. Directing the Christmas play puts her in close contact with Gregory Jones, the man who broke her heart and is now a divorced father of two small boys. As she becomes involved with his sons, she once again faces her parents' disapproval of Gregory. Will the past repeat itself? Tippens' solid story shows how parental love can be misguided when God is not consulted and that He will make all things work for good in His own time.
