“A Season of Hope,” in CHRISTMAS IN THE AIR, with author Irene Brand, Steeple Hill Love Inspired, October 2005, 0-373-87332-8.

David Wright knows it’s a mistake reprising his role of Joseph in the community live nativity performance since the first play had been a disaster. His suspicion is confirmed as his pregnant friend Allison becomes too ill to participate and asks her cousin Sondra Stevens to play Mary in her place. When a resentful David meets the ultra-independent Sondra, the stage is set for a Christmas-holiday competition between friend and cousin over who is the best nursemaid/chef for an ailing Allison. Can the two competitors find a win-win situation where the love they portrayed in the nativity finds a warm place in two hearts? Anything is possible in this season of hope.

“Christmas in the Air is a good 2-in-1 novel, which will get you in the Christmas spirit. Both stories will hold your interest and warm your heart.”   

– reviewer Vickie McDonough

"Corbit...uses a mirthful touch and clever dialogue that makes her short story alone worth the price of the book."

Will they discover the truth and their way to each other before tragedy strikes?
