Book Description

Abbie Taylor has a thousand things to do before the big day, help the vicar with his needy families, organize the Christmas nativity, and spare time for a distraught baby at the orphanage who only settles when she’s near. Falling into a coma while her spirit resides inside a prickly, big-shot businessman doesn’t work for her at all… until she falls in love.

How could Marcus Chapman be so unlucky? First he’s saddled with his newly widowed mum, and the next thing he knows, he has an annoying spirit invader who’s instantly aware that he isn’t nearly as tough as he makes out. Between these two manipulating women, and the orphans Abbie forces him to visit, the poor man doesn’t stand a chance. The season is Christmas, and love is all around.

My husband is supportive, drags me out to feed me and plans occasional forays into the outside world. I have a son who makes me happy I was born a woman so I could be his mom, and a niece whose family adds to my full cup of happiness.
Gardening lights my inner fires, and I need no urging to get out into the yard when the weather dictates. I do have many hobbies such as cross-stitch, quilting, crocheting, but alas - no time."

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing. 16 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have collected all books in the the Vicarage bench series now and loved them. The story of Marcus and Abbie had me enthralled from the first page. I have actually read some of the novels twice over. The incident with the rose was so beautifully portrayed and in such a way that it takes the reader into the whole unique incident. From thereon, I was hooked and instead of an early night, read into the early hours. The prose is crisp and clear, the plot cleverly defined and the concept quite original. Originality is difficult for any writer but this talented author Mimi Barbour achieved this with her Vicarage bench series.
Now I have the pleasure of reading her other series.
Highly recommended

With all of the terrible things that are happening in this world, sometimes you just need a shot of happiness. The Vicarage Bench series always fills that need for me. I'm glad that Mimi realizes that this need exists and is able to create this happiness to share with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heart-Warming Tale Of Love 18 Oct. 2013
By Must Love Books - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a Christmas story designed to melt the coldest heart.

The hero, Marcus is an over-worked business man. Exhausted he falls asleep on a bench only to be woken by Abby covering the roses so they won't die of cold. When he tries to help her a thorn pricks her finger and she falls into a coma.

But while, to the rest of the world she is as good as dead, her soul has joined Marcus in his body. Until she recovers from the coma he's stuck with her. And while he may be a work-a-holic who spends far too much of his time working she's the polar opposite.

Raised in an orphanage, with no parents of her own she loves his mother, while her job is to assist the vicar with his duties. With Christmas coming she's got loads to do visiting parishioners who need help or just some company, helping to get a Christmas Paegent ready and visiting the orphanage she grew up in. In exchange for helping out she's been allowed to stay in the orphanage and is the only one able to calm down a small baby named Nicholas.

That means Marcus is going to have to step in and pick up the slack. Surprisingly he manages to come up with solutions to problems neither Abbie nor the Vicar were able to solve on his own.

In the process he and Abbie fall in love but you'll have to read the book to find out how. I think you'll enjoy this heart-warming tale of love as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spirit of Christmas Personified 16 Oct. 2013
By Flo Barnett - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the beginning of Mimi Barbour's "Together for Christmas," I thought it strange and unlikely to be holiday-worthy. Marcus Chapman, a sour accountant parked on a bench outside the vicarage bemoaning his life meets with Abbie Taylor, who in the cold, is struggling to cover rose bushes in the dead of winter. Strange, maybe. But when Abby pricks her finger on a thorn and faints to the ground something way beyond strange occurs. Her spirit leaves her body and enters into the body of Mr. Chapman.
Now we're talking strange. Oh, but it gets better, much better. Marcus hears a voice that he perceives to be close to him. However, close isn't exactly the right word in this case. What he's hearing is Abbie's voice that is actually coming from inside of him. And, they can and do converse as if they were seated next to each other on that very bench.

I could tell you the entire story, but I'm sure Ms. Barbour would prefer that you read her book on your own. What I will tell you is that as I continued reading I was struck with the magical beauty of this tale and how cleverly Mimi wove the true meaning of Christmas into every page. Characters quaintly resembling Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Scrooge-like disposition of Marcus giving way to real expressions of caring and charity, a woman's heartfelt underlying story of sacrificing a child out of love, a nativity presentation that will leave you breathless! All of this personifying the spirit of Christmas for me as I have never experienced it before. Or at least not in a very long time! Gift yourself with "Together for Christmas" today. You'll be so glad you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Story to Warm Your Heart 15 Oct. 2013
By Jo-Ann Carson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Together for Christmas is multi-published author, Mimi Barbour's, fifth book in her Vicarage Bench Series. It is a delightful story of two people falling in love, inside one body. Yes, you heard me right - one body.

After a fall, Abbie Taylor's spirit leaves her body and takes up residence in Marcus Chapman, a handsome, independent man. Trapped in the closest and most intimate of spaces, they get to know each other and themselves. The dialogue is witty and the plot is fun. You find yourself cheering them on, as they fall hopelessly in love.

Barbour spins a difficult to tell story with ease. Her prose is smooth. Her characters rich and her plot fast paced. She delivers the well deserved happily ever after ending perfectly. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys sweet romance with imagination.
