About this Book

Treat yourself to ebooks inspired by Hallmark Christmas movies. Enjoy a heartwarming, feel-good story…and find out what happens after the movie ends.

Eve is a workaholic. Yeah, it may be Christmastime, but she won’t let that distract her from making partner at her financial firm. Even if that means her family and her personal life get pushed to the side…again.

Then Eve slips on a patch of icy sidewalk, hits her head, and wakes up in Heaven. She finds herself in training as a Christmas angel. Ironic, since she hasn't cared about the holiday in years.

Still, Eve sets out to do the best she can at her new job. With the guidance of her angel mentor, she'll answer a little girl's prayer for her uncle Max to find happiness again.

The assignment turns out to be far more complicated than she expected. What’s more, Eve finds herself falling for Max—hard. Only the true meaning of Christmas and family can help Eve find hope for Max…and for herself.

This story includes a free original recipe for Heavenly Angel Food Cake with Vanilla Bean Crème Anglaise.

A Heavenly Christmas by Rhonda Merwarth is based on the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie by the same name. I didn’t remember watching this movie, so I was excited to read the book, especially after reading the previous Hallmark eBook, Christmas in Homestead, and enjoying it.

A Heavenly Christmas was a well written book. We read about Eve, who is a workaholic and isn’t that into Christmas. She is really focused at work and that is consuming her over the holidays.

Eve ends up slipping on a patch of ice on a sidewalk and hits her head. She wakes up in heaven and ends up training to be a Christmas angel. While Eve hasn’t been into Christmas in years, she is now thrown into training and she sets out on her new job.

While the story was written well, I just wasn’t that into it. I think it was more the overall storyline that I didn’t care for as much as other books. That doesn’t mean this is a bad book. If this type of story is something you enjoy, then I think you will like this book. It just wasn’t for me, but that won’t keep me from reading more of Hallmark’s ebooks because I’m loving them!
