A Christmas Stamp by Cynthia Hickey - O' Little Town of Christmas Collection


A Christmas Stamp by Cynthia Hickey

A Christmas Stamp by Cynthia Hickey
Book One in the O' Little Town of Christmas collection. 


Blurb:
Lilly Tipton has her first job as a telephonist in the picturesque town of Noel, Missouri. When she is injured riding her bicycle home from her job, she finds herself thrust into judging a contest to find a postmark that represents her little town. Not a difficult task other than the fact she must work with the very man who almost ran her over...the handsome mail carrier, Calvin Monroe. 

After the death of his father and brother, and an injury obtained during his short time as a college football player, Calvin has no other plans than to work at his job and care for his mourning mother. When he literally runs into the lovely new telephonist, he knows all his future plans are changed. What he thought important turns out not to be. 

As the town prepares for notoriety with its postmark contest, Lilly and Calvin must set aside their plans and let God take the reins of their future. 


This short story is an adorable Christmas read!!!
My review: Five Stars *****


Lilly is such a sweetheart.  I liked her right away! I think she's just as klutzy as me! Plus I love that name. Ms. Hickey's story was inspired by a real life contest for Christmas stamp, which I thought was neat.  

Calvin is a strong hero with a compassionate heart. There's so much packed into this short story that I thought it was a novella. A really nice quick read for those looking for a Christian historical romance set near Christmas time.

This book is part of the O' Little Town of Christmas collection spearheaded by Gina Welborn.  The second story, An Angel for Mistletoe, by Teresa Ives Lilly has also released.

    1. This is a fun collection, Diana! Snow globes are pretty and were created a little later than my own story.
