A Cedar Cove Christmas is a novella in the popular Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber. As well as many favourite Cedar Cove characters, this tale features a few new ones: Mary Jo Wyse, very pregnant, arrives in Cedar Cove on Christmas Eve in search of her baby's father, David Rhodes. David, of course, has lied (again!) and that leaves Mary Jo stranded without a place to stay because, of course, there is no room at the inn. Macomber goes on to include as many elements of the first Christmas as she reasonably can, including a stable for Mary Jo to stay in, ox, ass and camel in that stable (for the Nativity Pageant), three Wyse men (Mary Jo's brothers), a star (or two) to lead them to said stable, and a baby born that night. As well as Macomber's endearing characters and usual feelgood plot, there was plenty of humour in this one in the form of dialogue between the Wyse brothers. A delightful Christmas tale.
